Masked Singer Pilipinas

Masked Singer Pilipinas is a Philippine reality singing competition television series broadcast on TV5 which premiered on October 24, 2020.[1] It is an adaptation of the Masked Singer franchise and features celebrities singing covers of famous songs while wearing head-to-toe costumes and face masks that conceal their identities. Hosted by Billy Crawford,[2][3] the program features several panelists who are given various clues regarding the celebrities' identities to guess who they could be after each performance. At the end of each episode, the panelists and the audience vote for their favorite singer and the least popular is eliminated, taking off their mask to reveal their identity.

ProductionEdit

Viva originally began developing a local Philippine adaptation of the franchise in 2016 to be hosted by Cesar Montano and directed by GB Sampedro. Two pilot episodes of the series were filmed to be presented to TV5 management with a planned premiere in June 2016. However, the series was eventually shelved due to budget concerns.[4]

On September 24, 2020, TV5 hinted a new show with a mysterious mask.[5] This was further confirmed on the same day.[1] The filming of the show started on October 6, 2020.[6]
