FormatEdit

A group of celebrities hide behind a character and, week after week, a panel of researchers will try to discover who is behind the mask. Competitors are matched in face-off competitions and perform a song. The studio audience votes for their favorite performance and the masked singer with the most votes is safe for the week, while the celebrity with the least votes is nominated for elimination. The panelists decide which of the nominated celebrities will not continue in the competition. The eliminated celebrity removes their mask to reveal their identity.
