Get ready for even more The Masked Singer fun, as the show has announced an international version, featuring celebrities from around the world competing against each other. The current title for the project is One World, One Masked Singer.


‘The Masked Singer’ International Competition Announced

According to Variety, the international edition of the show will feature celebrities from various versions of the franchise around the world, all competing against each other to be named “The Global Masked Singer Champion.”

Craig Plestis, executive producer of the U.S. version, has been chosen by format owner MBC America to be global creative officer of The Masked Singer. He’ll serve as creator and executive producer of the international competition.

Plestis said in a statement that something like this has been a dream of his since he realized what a phenomenon the show had become around the world following its success in the United States.


“It is now in more than 56 countries,” Plestis continued, “and I cannot wait to gather together delegates from each and every one, in brand new costumes, for an epic competition series to air across the planet in each Masked Singer territory.”

The only versions I watch are US, AU, UK, and NZ but I heard Russia was banned from using their costumes in this series and I think is because they usually reuse costumes.
