From the start, this was inevitable. With The Masked Singer already in its fourth season, and there are absolutely no signs of the show slowing down. However, if you’re in dire need of a quick refreshment, look no further––The Masked Dancer is here to save the day!
Much like its predecessor, the dancing spin-off will feature a wackily disguised celebrity wearing a costume no one would ever use for Halloween and let the panelists make an effort to guess who it is. This time, though, it’s a little bit different. The Masked Dancer isn’t the way it’s titled for no reason at all––instead of showcasing celebrity voices, they’ll be showing off their dance moves.
Here’s everything you need to know about The Masked Dancer and all of its awaited glory!
What to Know:
During Ellen DeGeneres’ show, the peak of The Masked Singer was just too loud to ignore––and so, they created a spoof on the show called The Masked Dancer wherein DeGeneres and tWitch, the show’s DJ, would watch a celebrity in a costume dance and try to guess who it was.
Leading up to the days of developing the real The Masked Dancer, DeGeneres was called up and was asked about the creation of an actual spin-off with the same concept. Now, DeGeneres is an executive producer of the official spin-off.
Alongside DeGeneres it recruited members of the show’s family in Brooklyn Nine-Nine’s very own Craig Robinson.
As for the panelists, they will be made up of Ken Jeong, Paula Abdul, Brian Austin Green, and Ashley Tisdale.
Community’s Jeong is no stranger to the universe of this particular “genre,” as he is already a panelist for The Masked Singer. Green, on the other hand, remembers The Masked Singer from a different perspective as he has already been a contestant.
Paula Abdul, of course, is quite literally the embodiment of a show’s judge having been a judge for the first eight seasons of American Idol, So You Think You Can Dance, and X-Factor. Considering that she’s both a dancer and a singer, no woman is more perfect to judge for The Masked Dancer.
Tisdale, one of the biggest stars of the young generation, has been a part of High School Musical––a series of movies that enhanced her skills in both singing and dancing. With that, she released three albums to prove that she’s no kid-wonder.
As for the release, the show is set to premiere in December! Exciting times, isn’t it?
The Masked Dancer continues the genre of celebrities in eye-catching costumes, to say the least, showcasing their talents whether it be singing or dancing. However, the upcoming show will be focusing solely on the latter––and it’s just as exciting as The Masked Singer.
With Craig Robinson hosting the show––known to be quite the comedian, and that’s an understatement. With Ken Jeong, Paula Abdul, Brian Austin Green, and Ashley Tisdale to serve as the panelists, viewers will be in for a treat. Not to mention the fact that Ellen DeGeneres will be serving as the executive producer makes The Masked Dancer something to look out for during quite the depressing 2020.
