Fox Greenlights New Singing Competition Series Hosted By Nick Cannon

Posted by at 1:48 pm on August 2, 2018

Fox has a brand new celebrity competition series coming your way next January and this one comes in disguise. The network announced it has ordered the Nick Cannon-hosted The Masked Singer to series, during the Television Critics Association press tour Thursday.

Based on an international hit, which boasts half a billion fans worldwide and was the No. 1 top-trending video of 2017 on YouTube, “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.

Ken Jeong, Jenny McCarthy, Nicole Scherzinger and Robin Thicke will “play detective” on the show’s panel, alongside Cannon.

With each performance, the host, panelists, audience, viewers and even the other contestants are left guessing who is singing behind the mask. The singers may attempt to throw the crowd off of their scent, while keen observers might pick up on tiny hints 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!”

According to Fox, between all of the celebrity competitors on “The Masked Singer,” they’ve amassed 65 Grammy nominations, 16 multi-Platinum albums, 16 Emmy nominations, nine Broadway shows, four stars on the Hollywood Walk of Fame and four Super Bowl titles.
