Alter Ego Fox’s game show. Have you ever imagined yourself as a musical celebrity, singing a song on a worldwide stage? Alter Ego will provide many music lovers a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to live out their deepest dreams, although in an unusual way. In the style of American Idol and the Masked Singer, Fox has produced a reality singing competition serial that promises different than anything we’ve seen, and we won’t have to wait long now as the show is scheduled to air later this month.
“Alter Ego,” Fox will most likely try to repeat the popularity of “The Masked Singer.” The new reality show’s contestants, on the other hand, will be disguising their physical features under more than extravagant clothes.
According to reports, the program’s makers billed it as “a first-of-its-kind avatar singing competition series and the next version of the musical competition show,” according to reports. Instead of wearing costumes, vocalists will use motion capture technology and CGI to disguise themselves. To put it another way, each performer will be represented by a strange, computer-generated avatar.
Fox’s Alter Ego Release Date and where to watch it?
While Fox announced the development of its new singing competition, “Alter Ego,” on Twitter in May, the network held off on announcing the premiere date. In reality, the release date was only recently announced. “Trust me, you’ve never seen a spectacle like this!” reads a post from the Alter Ego Twitter account on August 22. The Premier date was subsequently set for September 22 at 9:00 p.m. EST,
On Wednesday, September 22, viewers will receive their first look at “Alter Ego.” The debut will be split into two nights, with the second episode showing on Thursday at the same time as the first. This will allow Fox to rapidly assess the show’s popularity. Rob Wade, Fox Entertainment’s President of Alternative Entertainment and Specials, attempted to persuade viewers that it would be worth their time in a press release. According to Futon Critic, “‘Alter Ego’ blends talent and technology to reinvent the singing contest show in a way only FOX can,” he stated.
Even though the ratings aren’t as great as they once were, “The Masked Singer” continues to dominate its rivals. Season 5’s most popular episodes drew almost five million viewers, thus the time slot after the series is highly sought after. According to Carter Matt, the commercial appeared to assist the game show “Game of Talents” get a greater viewership than it would have otherwise. So everyone connected with “Alter Ego” should be pleased that the series’ debut episode will broadcast after “The Masked Singer’s” Season 6 premiere.
Viewers will be able to watch “Alter Ego” using the Fox Now app and their cable provider login, in addition to watching it on Fox. It will air live on several streaming sites, including Hulu with Live TV, YouTube TV, Sling TV, and Fubo TV, just like “The Masked Singer” (via What to Watch). Subscribers to Hulu and Tubi may also view replays of the broadcasts.
Judges on ‘Alter Ego’
On “Alter Ego,” there will be a lot of recognizable faces. Its judging panel includes a few singers with ties to Fox, notably Alanis Morissette, the singer of “You Outta Know.” In the animated series “The Great North,” the Canadian singer plays a sky-bound, fictional version of herself. Then there’s Piglet, played by Nick Lachey, who won Season 5 of “The Masked Singer.” During an interview with People, he said his outfit was “very, uncomfortable,” so “Alter Ego” rivals had it easy in contrast to what the 98 Degrees singer went through.
Grimes, an independent artist with extensive experience creating distinctive avatars, will also contribute her talents. According to Dazed, the visual artist utilized one named WarNymph to advertise her album “Miss Anthropocene.” In an interview with Billboard, she described “Alter Ego” as “very post-human.” She stated, “No one has a body, and no one is bound by age, gender, or anything else.” “I’ve been having a lot of fun with it since we’ve spent so much time in a society where you’re trapped in your shell and have no option but to cope.”
Will.i.am, the founder of the Black Eyed Peas, completes the panel. Because of his work as a coach on “The Voice UK,” the seven-time Grammy winner has some experience assessing artists whose true faces he can’t see. Rocsi Diaz, co-anchor of “106 & Park,” will present “Alter Ego.”
