Get ready to watch another musical guessing game starring Ken Jeong. The Masked Singer judge is hosting a new show called I Can See Your Voice. It sounds a bit similar to Ken’s current gig.


Deadline reports that Fox gave a series order to the show, which Ken is also executive-producing. It’s based on a South Korean series, and will premiere later this year. Read on to find out what it’s about, and how it differs from The Masked Singer.

Ken Jeong Hosting ‘I Can See Your Voice’

Ken Jeong shared the news on Instagram this week, writing, “As the smartest judge on The Masked Singer, I also know how to See Voices.” If you’re wondering what that means, here’s the gist of the show.

WHY ‘THE MASKED SINGER’ IS FILMED AT WORLD WAR II AIR BASE


In each episode, a contestant will be asked to tell the difference between good and bad singers, without ever hearing the people sing. It’s all based on lip syncing, clues, and “true-or-false evidence.” There will also be a panel of famous “comedians/experts.” The chosen singer will reveal their voice in a duet with a “musical superstar.”

Even Rob Wade, President of Alternative Entertainment & Specials at Fox, compared the show to The Masked Singer, saying, “Just like The Masked Singer, I Can See Your Voice is a distinctive format that makes for a big, bold creative swing. And with Ken leading the charge as host, it’s going to be another crazy ride for viewers.”

Does This Mean Ken Is Leaving ‘The Masked Singer’?

The show certainly shares similar elements with The Masked Singer, like the mystery and the fact that it’s based on a Korean format. However, I Can See Your Voice is kind of the opposite of The Masked Singer, in that you can see the people but not hear their singing voices.

It doesn’t sound like this show will be a threat to The Masked Singer. They’re both on Fox, and The Masked Singer has been a hit in the ratings. Ken Jeong isn’t planning on leaving his place on the panel any time soon, either.

When someone on Instagram begged him not to leave The Masked Singer, Ken replied that he “never” would, adding, “@maskedsingerfox FOR LIFE.” We’re glad to hear it, and can’t wait to check out the new show.
