    THE MASKED SINGER is television’s #1 new show, captivating a massive audience of more than 17 million multi-platform viewers in its record-breaking debut. The singing competition series is hosted by Nick Cannon and features panelists Jenny McCarthy, Nicole Scherzinger, Ken Jeong and Robin Thicke.
    The show 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. Season Two boasts 16 celebrity singers in all-new costumes and masks, including The Flamingo, The Leopard and The Egg.
    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!”

    i would assume the singing would sound super muffled in some of the costumes, which makes me think they either prerecord the vocals or there's a mic in the costume

    Joey Fatone said he had to wear a corset under the costume. Does anyone know if the other competitors had to do this as well?

  • Skylar Neely

    I hope they make adjustments on how they design their costumes next season. They need to make them less dense so the performer can breathe better and so they won’t overheat. I can see these costumes being really hazardous.

    korea mask를 괜히 그렇게 만든게 아님 벗었을때 머리스타일 망거짐도 적고 노래하기도 쉽고 덜 무겁다. 사람 잡기전에 차용하길~

    Geez if they put it this way, it's amazing the show the were able to put on with these masks! Like Joey did full blown dance routines! This behind the scenes footage is cool too to see them rehearse with just the masks.
    By the way, here's something I always wondered...did their backup dancers know who they were the entire time?

  • 11/10

    Starhawk Flying Bright 8 months ago +13

    That’s the difference between Korea’s and US masked singers.. Korea’s version is just a simple lightweight mask covering the face.. nothing much weighing down on the shoulders or body.. but in US version it can be called “the costume singer”

    • TDINoahFan
      TDINoahFan 7 months ago +1

      Starhawk Flying Bright the I think they do that sims cause they don't want people guessing them based on clothing choice it's meant to make it harder and tbh it would weird seeing t pain with just the monster head

  • Thao Le

    Just for the concern, what if someone wear glasses so they have to take their glasses off and wear mask to compete but I’m afraid they can’t see properly?

  • The Lovable Muffin 209
    The Lovable Muffin 209 8 months ago

    I wonder what they do with the costumes once the singer is eliminated? Like do they send it to the singer or do they reuse them or keep them for some kind of memory hallway

      @Fresh Ocean Waters Oh, of course, I understand that! I'm just talking about the general complaints about the heat and the obscured vision, not an exact one for one. :P Sorry if it ruffled any feathers, I didn't mean to offend.

    Not fooling anyone. The music is pre-recorded. I don’t think they actually sing live. Maybe some do but some don’t

    • violetclover1224
      violetclover1224 7 months ago +2

      They definitely sing live. There's a microphone inside the mask so they don't have to struggle that much to sing into a microphone outside the mask. Also, if you listen to when unmasked singers sing their song again at the end of an episode, it sounds different than when they first sang it.

    • bklynkat23

      They definitely do sing live

    • The Lovable Muffin 209
      The Lovable Muffin 209 8 months ago +2

      I don’t think they sing live either. They talk about how it’s hard to breathe and see and how hot it is so I doubt it’s in real time (their real time since the show is prerecorded). I’m not mad tho if it is prerecorded because I understand it’s not the most comfortable suit to be in

    I know the costume makers wont see this, but for the mesh so the people can see, try looking up and buying black BUCKRAM or screen for a window (with small enough gaps), it can be painted so people cant see in, but the performers can easily see out, with minimal light glare as your eyes start to ignore the tiny holes in the mesh and it's very breathable!
    And if you need to cut down on weight, high density foam is your best friend! It's more comfortable,lightweight, and breathable so more heat can escape! Very smart of you guys to give a balaclava to the performer! Those world like a charm to help reduce the heat!

      Right. Someone’s gonna pass out on stage with those masks. Especially with older singers.

    The heavy breathing :(
    I feel bad for them.
    The costumes need a design upgrade for Season 2. Especially if they're wanting to attract A Listers (imo). It's all about Trial&Error. Great season, though! I would just cut back on the backup vocals, vocal editing, and clues to make it a bit more difficult. Episode 1&2 made it too easy :)
    Hopefully I don't even have to mention that the heights shouldn't be given lol (but just in case...)

    • bklynkat23
      bklynkat23 8 months ago +1

      Yeah they definitely need to cut back on the clues during season 2

    • Julia Alston
      Julia Alston 8 months ago +7

      Uri Ramirez And no cutting to judges talking during the performances! We missed the best part of Joey/the rabbit’s best performance, “Poison”. At the very least do a split screen.
