American TV execs have created a US version of popular South Korean reality TV show ‘King of Mask Singer’ (re-titled ‘The Masked Singer’) and it looks both insane and amazing.
If you’re not familiar with the show already, the premise surrounds 12 celebrities who perform a song on stage in front of a crowd and a panel of celebrity judges.
The identity of the celebs remains unknown as they perform in giant Power-Ranger-villain-esk suits, with the judges attempting to guess their identities along the way.
The series sees singing face-offs, identity clues and eliminations, with only one performer left standing at the end.
Look, it’s better if we just show you:
Here is a Bee singing Sia’s ‘Chandelier' who everyone is convinced is legend Gladys Knight!
And here is a Rabbit performing Ricky Martin’s 'Livin' La Vida Loca' who the internet believes may be Joey Fatone:
The celebrities don’t have to be singers either. We’re two episodes in and eliminated contestant identities have revealed ~spoiler alert~ Tommy Chong as Pinapple and NFL star Antonio Brown as Hippo.
The panel of judges includes Ken Jeong, Jenny McCarthy, Nicole Scherzinger, and Robin Thicke.
I’ve spent way too long watching videos of this show.
And now you can too.
DON'T WORRY ABOUT ANYTHING ON YOUR TO-DO LIST TODAY. WE'RE WATCHING THESE NOW.
