As if the masked singing wasn’t enough, get ready for masked dancing!
The Masked Dancer, spinoff to The Masked Singer, is finally almost here and somehow it sounds like even more of a fever dream than its parent show. This time, instead of singing, the masked creatures will be dancing, a la that Ellen Degeneres bit in which Howie Mandel was revealed to be a dancing pug. Ellen is also an executive producer.
Craig Robinson is set to host the series, which is normal and delightful enough. Ken Jeong will also serve as a panelist, which is to be expected at this point. The rest of the panel? We couldn’t have Mad Libbed this if we tried.
While guessing a person based on their voice is already hard enough sometimes, it sounds particularly impossible to guess someone based on their dancing—unless they’re literally pro dancer Derek Hough.
