Launching as the #1 new show of the season and the #1 unscripted series on television, THE MASKED SINGER is a new celebrity singing game show hosted by Nick Cannon and featuring panelists Jenny McCarthy, Nicole Scherzinger, Ken Jeong and Robin Thicke.
Based on the hit international format, THE MASKED SINGER features celebrities facing off against one another with one major twist: each singer is shrouded from head to toe in an elaborate costume, complete with full face mask to conceal his or her identity.
With each performance, the host, panelists, audience, viewers and even the other contestants are left guessing who is singing behind the mask. Ranging from Grammy Award winners to legendary athletes, and everything in between, the singers may attempt to throw the crowd off of their scent, while keen observers might pick up on tiny clues buried throughout the show. One singer will be eliminated each week, ultimately revealing his or her true identity. It’s not a “whodunit,” it’s a “whosungit!”
Among the celebrities who already have been unmasked are NFL wide receiver Antonio Brown (“Hippo”), comedian Tommy Chong (“Pineapple”), football legend Terry Bradshaw (“Deer”), comedian/actress Margaret Cho (“Poodle”) and actress Tori Spelling (“Unicorn”).
Produced by Endemol Shine North America, THE MASKED SINGER was developed for the U.S. and is executive-produced by Craig Plestis (“Minute to Win It,” “The Winner Is”) of Smart Dog Media and Izzie Pick Ibarra (“Dancing with the Stars,” “Breaking Pointe”). Alex Rudzinski (“Dancing with the Stars,” “Grease: Live”) directs. Nick Cannon serves as co-executive producer. THE MASKED SINGER is based on the South Korean format created by Mun Hwa Broadcasting Corp. “Like” THE MASKED SINGER on Facebook at facebook.com/maskedsingerfox.
