FOX has fast-tracked the all-new music guessing game unscripted series “I Can See Your Voice,” hosted and executive-produced by comedian, actor and “The Masked Singer” panelist Ken Jeong. For a night of event television, the series will debut Wednesday, Sept. 23 (9 p.m. ET), following the season four premiere of television’s No. 1 show, “The Masked Singer” (8 p.m.), on FOX.
Offering viewers a first look at the hit’s all-new season, a special sneak peek episode of “The Masked Singer” will air Sunday, Sept. 13 (8 p.m. ET, but live to all time zones), following the first NFL double-header of the season.
“Safely filming ‘I Can See Your Voice’ this summer was a win in itself, but when we saw the pure magic of the show and felt the palpable suspense in the room before that first note hit, we knew we had to share it with audiences this season,” said Rob Wade, president of alternative entertainment and specials, FOX Entertainment. “It’s no secret that viewers need a little fun and escape now and, as a companion to an all-new season of ‘The Masked Singer,’ this will be a fantastic night of family entertainment – and a fantastic night of Ken Jeong!”
“I Can See Your Voice” features Emmy-nominated actress Cheryl Hines and Daytime Emmy Award-winning television host and vocalist Adrienne Bailon-Houghton, as they join Jeong, a rotating panel of celebrity detectives, comprised of comedians and pop culture experts, and a musical superstar to help one contestant tell the difference between good and bad singers, without ever hearing them sing a note. With $100,000 on the line, the contestant will attempt to weed out the bad “Secret Voices” from the good, based on a series of clues, interrogation, and lip synch challenges. In the end, the singer whom the contestant picks will reveal if they are good or bad in a duet performance with the musical superstar, resulting in an amazing musical collaboration or a totally hilarious train wreck.
Embarking on its fourth season, Emmy Award-nominated “The Masked Singer” is the No. 1 show on television, drawing a massive audience of nearly 24 million viewers in its post-Super Bowl season three premiere. The singing competition series is hosted by Nick Cannon and features panelists Jeong, Jenny McCarthy, Nicole Scherzinger and Robin Thicke. The season four celebrity contestants combined have sold more than 281 million records worldwide, appeared in more than 5,475 episodes of television and 151 films, appeared in five Super Bowls, have four stars on the Hollywood Walk of Fame, and one Time 100 Most Influential persons.
