The Masked Singer

Critics Consensus

Defying all tropes of the reality competition genre, The Masked Singer manages to be both magnetically apocalyptic and inexplicably boring.

Critic Reviews for The Masked Singer Season 1

All Critics (25) | Top Critics (12)

It's nice to watch celebrities make fools of themselves for the sake of entertainment, and it's nice to see judges be complimentary when they don't necessarily have to be because there is nothing at stake.

Like the worst and corniest decor you've ever affixed to your refrigerator, it's pretty terrible, but you can't deny that it's magnetic. And unlike a lot of performance shows, it's not vicious. It's easy.

A prohibitive favorite for worst new TV show of the year didn't take long to assume that position.

Collectively, we love a good gimmick. And The Masked Singer has a great one.

Is The Masked Singer a great show? Yes, because it has elaborate costumes and voice modulators.

This horrible show might be slightly more interesting if I actually cared anything about the celebrities under the masks.

Bizarre singing contest is surprisingly fun.

...you do need to care who the star is when it's revealed. Instead, that moment bursts the fantasy bubble...

Feb 15, 2019 | Full Review…

To be honest, the buildup is thrilling.

Jan 17, 2019 | Full Review…

Even I, a person born before the Internet but not that long after Christ, thought it was cute, a welcome break from serious documentaries, heady dramas and troubling 60 Minutes segments like the one about birds eating plastic.

Audience Reviews for The Masked Singer: Season 1

  • Mar 14, 2019
    Amazing show and people.
  • Mar 03, 2019
    Great show could use less syrup from the judges and longer song times from the competitors. Had a great time trying to find out who was under the mask. Would be better if home audience could vote too.
  • Feb 27, 2019
    I actually love the concept of the show, I love the anonymity of it. Being able to listen and not have any preconceived judgments, I only didn�����t give 5 stars because at times all the talking between host and judges or �����detectives����� drags on to long.

    Its a great show love the anticipation of who it is and guessing Ive guessed a few right but fun to watch
  • Feb 22, 2019
    I tried watching but the idea and show overall is best fit for children only. Terrible show.
  • Feb 21, 2019
    The only thing wrong with this show are the judges. They're awful and pointless - especially when they make stupid guesses like Hugh Jackman.
  • Feb 13, 2019
    I love this show me and my mom are always left guessing every week this week the alien went (watch to find out who) it is a must see and I love them i think the bunny is maybe chris brown, adam levine or flo rida the most recent hints were he has 17 tattoos and is from florida
  • Feb 09, 2019
    Interesting, but the whole thing makes me feel like I'm becoming less smart by watching it.
  • Feb 07, 2019
    Great show. Even when you know who the signer may be you still second guess yourself, and then the anticipation keeps building every week they do not reveal. Love the show

    I don't like Jenny McCarthy, but I love this show.
