The Masked Dancer is a spinoff of Fox's popular The Masked Singer. It originally premiered in late December. Since its premiere, the show has said goodbye to numerous masked celebrities, including Jordin Sparks (Exotic Bird), Oscar De La Hoya (Zebra), and Bill Nye the Science Guy (Ice Cube). The show has featured a judges panel comprised of Ken Jeong, who also serves as a judge on The Masked Singer, Paula Abdul, Brian Austin Green, and Ashley Tisdale. Prior to the premiere episode, Tisdale explained to Entertainment Weekly that fans would be in for plenty of surprises during the course of the season. Judging by the surprising reveals that have taken place thus far, she was definitely right on the mark.
"I can see how, if celebrities who haven't sung could be really kind of nervous to go out and sing, where dancing, I feel like everyone loves to dance," Tisdale said. "And so, I think it opens it up to even more people. It could be anybody." Craig Plestis, one of the executive producers on The Masked Dancer, also said about the show, "We are looking for people who are fans of the Masked brand, who want to go under a mask, and a lot of the people that we have on the show are actually skilled dancers and [dancing is] more of their secret hobby that they have. And we were able to have some incredible talent on the show.
