Back in January 2019, Fox decided to introduce a whole new kind of gaming show to its audience: The Masked Singer. The idea is for a number of celebrities to wear elaborate costumes, show them some of the most iconic hits to date, and host a jury to reveal their identities through a series of clues. Quite easy. But after four seasons, the producers of the popular series decided to up the ante. With their newest show, the Masked Dancer, she gives you everything you love about a sister singing show, but with a twist. Instead of using vocals to identify celebrities, it’s all about breaking now. Prior to the premiere, here’s some more information on the upcoming show:
What did The Masked Dancer do?
The idea started as a cheat on the Ellen DeGeneres Show when The Masked Singer was in its first season. Ellen DeGeneres will try to find out which celebrity guests are dancing undercover. After the routine finished, the two of them would guess who it was. About a year later (and discovery of spice by Rob Wade, President of Alternative & Specials at Fox), DeGeneres announced that they would be producing a full series version of the dance segment. The show anticipates heroes to “accomplish unusual dances”. And before you say how easy it is to identify celebrities by their voice, they’re about to change too. “It will be as fun and intense as The Masked Singer,” DeGeneres said in an official statement in January 2020. “I can’t wait!”
When will The Masked Dancer premiere?
Prepare a video recorder – The masquerade dancer’s premiere will take place on December 27th, the very time of the holiday.
Who will be the judges for The Masked Dancer?
Well, the good news for fans of The Masked Singer as Ken Jeong’s fan-favorite will be a judge on the premiere. He was joined by former American Idol judge Paula Abdul, Beverly Hills, 90210 star Brian Austin Green, and high school music star Ashley Tisdale. You will be accompanied by Office star Craig Robinson, who will host the event.
