What The Masked Singer Fans Like About We Are Family

Fox’s new celebrity singing show We Are Family shares some creative DNA with hit series The Masked Singer. However, fans are appreciating some of its own unique elements as well.

Viewers feel the singing talent on We Are Family is quite good so far. The show has set a high bar with voices like Destiny’s Child alumna Michelle Williams. Perhaps musical gifts run in families, benefiting these celebrity relatives.

Meanwhile, contestants on We Are Family have solid guesswork motivation. They are competing to split a $100,000 prize, so their celebrity suggestions tend to be more plausible.

The audience members also bring welcome energy trying to decipher the clues and win money. Their competitive spirit differs from The Masked Singer‘s celebrity panel just having fun.

While the verdict is still out on whether We Are Family will be a breakout hit, the premiere brought entertainment value. Watching contestants guess the identities of Williams, Joel McHale and others was enjoyable.

Upcoming episodes will reveal if viewers remain intrigued by the family singing twist and clue-based format. For now, We Are Family delivers good music and guessing game fun for fans of shows like The Masked Singer.
