Season four of The Masked Singer premieres tonight and there will be some major changes made to the show in the wake of the coronavirus pandemic. Keep reading to find out how you can possibly have a chance to vote for your favorite singers at home.
Voting On ‘The Masked Singer’ Will Be Different This Year
This season of The Masked Singer will not have a live audience. Social distancing rules have been enforced which prevent large gatherings. But the show must go on. Having a live audience is obviously a huge part of what makes the show so fun and it’s also how each contestant’s fate is decided. Typically, the live audience and the judges vote for which performers they want to see move onto the next round using their phones. This season, voting will be a bit different. This season, “Super Fans” will be selected to be a part of a “Virtual Audience” that will be tuning in from home. They will cast their votes for which performer they think should move on to the next round.
The votes will then be tallied virtually along with the judge’s votes to determine who stays and who goes. All of the judges, Ken Jeong, Nicole Scherzinger, Robin Thicke and Jenny McCarthy are all slated to return. Nick Cannon is also back as the host after causing some controversy with anti-semitic comments made on his podcast. Nick spilled some details about how there are no background dancers this year due to the coronavirus restrictions. The show is now adding CGI and animation elements to make the performances exciting. “It’s almost like we turned it into a positive because if you look we have cool new animation. The set looks amazing. There are computer-generated images that are a part of the performances” he said.

If you are tuning in at home without registering as a member of the “Virtual Audience,” you will not be eligible to vote.
“We’ve been showing the performances to our ‘Super Fans’ and letting them vote all across America” producer Craig Plestis told Variety. “I watch them when they actually do the voting, and they get to actually communicate with one another like a little private chat room. We’ve been really lucky that the fans are really loyal and showing up and they don’t want to spoil it for anyone.”
The Masked Singer season 4 airs on Wednesday nights at 8/7c on FOX. Definitely tune in and see if there is a chance for you to become a “Super Fan” and vote!
