“The Masked Singer Australia” will hit screens on Sunday, Aug. 7 at 7:30 p.m.
The show is now in its fourth season. This year, it will be fronted by Abbie Chatfield, Chrissie Swan, Mel B and Dave Hughes, with Osher Gunsberg returning as host.
Network 10 said the show will be “the biggest and best yet” with “powerhouse performers”.
It has already teased a number of performers, who will be concealed by costumes including the Mirrorball, Zombie and Thong.
Previous winners of the series include Cody Simpson, Bonnie Anderson and Anastacia.
The show features well-known identities, including singers, sports stars, actors, comedians and influencers, performing with their identity ‘masked’ by an elaborate costume.
The audience and the panel – in Australia, Chatfield, Swan, Mel B and Hughes – have to guess the identity of the performer based on their sound and numerous cryptic clues drip fed throughout the season.
Generally, performers are eliminated one-by-one, before there is one final performer who is ‘unmasked’ as the winner.
The show’s format originated in South Korea, where it first aired in 2015 with the title “The King of Mask Singer”. It was developed by Munhwa Broadcasting Corporation.
“The Masked Singer” has since been made in numerous countries including China, Greece, France, Brazil, Kazakhstan, Malaysia and Russia.
In the U.S., it has been won by identities including LeAnn Rimes, Jevel and Wayne Brady. Australia’s Natalie Imbruglia won the most recent season in the U.K.
