    What a train wreck. And yet I couldn't stop watching.

    "Hosted by Nick Cannon, with panelists Ken Jeong, Jenny McCarthy, Nicole Scherzinger and Robin Thicke, "The Masked Singer" is a top-secret singing competition in which celebrities face off against one another while shrouded from head to toe in an elaborate costume, concealing their identity"

    I watched and would've sworn they were lip-syncing, but according to this it is all recorded live -

    NOTE - THERE IS A SPOILER IN THE ARTICLE ABOUT THE FIRST ONE UNMASKED

    My theory on that show is the best two or three minutes will be on Youtube shortly after, and I won't have to tolerate Jenny McCarthy.

    I was disappointed they’re not all really good professional singers. Some are just “celebrities” who can’t sing. Apparently they’re using the DWTS standard - they’re probably all D-listers.

    I saw a commercial for this last week and thought it looked terrible. I think all talent shows look terrible, so nothing new there. This one did look next level awful though. :)

    I figured the celebrities would be like B or C level celebs.

    First ep was ok, but it's slowwwwww... I think they should only be unmasked when the panel as a group figures out their identity. I think the audience vote is a complete sham.

    Only one I'm pretty sure of is Peacock. The rest, dunno.

    It was beyond awful. Yet I’ll give it one more show.

    Me too. From the commercials I thought I also knew who Monster and Lion were but after the first episode I decided I had probably been thinking too A-List.

    I hope you are right about the Peacock. Very, very nice to look at if it is true!

    Everyone's reaction is exactly like mine. It was stupid, a train wreck, can't stand the panel and the host (outside of Ken Jeong) and yet, I'll be watching next week!! It's fun trying to guess who these people are from the clues.

    I think this would have been fine as a summer fill in show, like Shazam. But once my DVR starts filling up again, I will probably not watch weekly.

    Robin Thicke sounds EXACTLY like his father.

    Yeah, I guess there are a bunch of us in this boat - kinda sucked and was stupid but I'm not out yet.

    ITA about Thicke - I just watched this episode last night and I totally noticed that, especially at one point, I heard his father in his voice.

    As for the person revealed - didn't even know who that was.

    Agree about the Peacock.

    I picked AB correctly. I'm certain Peacock is The Hoff and am 50/50 that the Lion is Hally Berry or Jada pinket-smith

    What I couldn't figure out is: What happens if/when the panel picks correctly? I'm assuming nothing...I'm also assuming we won't ever see them guess correctly as to create more drama.

    Very few people outside of Pittsburgh would recognize him without his name being said. He plays with a helmet on and is still known by football fans. His fame has not risen to a level of Deion Sanders. I expected big signage in lights with his name as he removed his mask.

    On your speculation. My first rule when picking these things is that It's definitely NOT an A list celebrity, and probably not a B list one either. So I had to laugh at some of the guesses. Lady Gaga? Nah, she's definitely A List, there's no way she's doing this show. I think Halle Berry might STILL be an A List? Jada Pinkett though...yeah, she might fit.

    It's probably a big 'duh', but I was thinking that all the judges' drama about who they could be, especially when bringing up people like Gaga, was just that - drama. They know that these folks aren't going to be major a-list stars. Heck, as far as we know, they might know who each of them are, going in.

    I'm probably wrong but I don't think it is The Hoff. My first thought was Tom Jones but I heard an opinion of Donny Osmond and that sounds right based on the comment about moms having had posters of him.

    I’m not sure why people keep saying 6’ 4” Hoff was the 5’ 9” peacock. Everything about DO checks out though.

    I am only seeing 4 episodes for this.

    I can last that long.

    And it's FOX. Their definition of A list is Kathy Griffin
