The Audience on 'Masked Singer' Season 4 Isn't Real - Here's How They Followed COVID-19 Protocols

The Masked Singer is back!

The hit singing competition show returned for season four on Wednesday night (September 23) with returning host Nick Cannon and judges Robin Thicke, Jenny McCarthy, Ken Jeong, and Nicole Scherzinger.

As viewers might notice as they watch the premiere, it appears as if there is an audience in the studio, however, no one is actually in the stands because of COVID-19 safety protocols.

“It feels that through virtual reality and composite and reaction shots, we managed to create the feeling that there were people in the room,” Fox Entertainment’s President of Alternative Entertainment and Specials Rob Wade shared with Deadline.

“It’s going to feel very much like [previous seasons], it’s not going to feel different,” Rob continued. “You’ll notice that the audience will feel like it’s behind the judges. The one thing I’m expecting is for people to say is ‘How come they’re not COVID friendly? The audience aren’t wearing masks.’ Through various quarantining and various camera tricks, we’ve managed to do it.”

Rob also mentioned that production now includes regular testing, zoning, social distancing, sanitization, and non-sharing communal areas for the judges, contestants and crew.

“We went above and beyond the outlines of the CDC and local authorities in order to keep people safe,” Rob mentioned.

'The Masked Singer' Adds a Twist for Season 4!

The Masked Singer is getting a twist!

The hit masked singing reality TV competition series is returning to production with a surprise, Deadline reported Thursday (August 20).

“The show went back in production today at Red Studios in Hollywood with rigorous health and safety protocols in place. As you can imagine, all of the same protocols are in place that are on other non-scripted shows that have started back again: taking regular temperatures, social distancing and PPE equipment,” the outlet reported.

“There is, however, a twist this season. For the first time, Deadline understands that fans will have the chance to influence the outcome of the show. Viewers at home will have a chance to vote on their favorite performances as part of a virtual audience. The votes, as to which costumed singer they would like to see again, will help determine who goes through.”

The show’s fourth season premiere is set for September. We can’t wait to see how this turns out!

The Masked Singer is hosted by Nick Cannon and judges include Ken Jeong, Jenny McCarthy, Nicole Scherzinger and Robin Thicke.

“We’re full steam ahead, but everyone’s operating in their isolated bubbles in their houses. We’re getting the work done. It takes a lot longer, I’m not going to lie,” said executive producer Craig Plestis during a panel.

“It’s making sure everyone is protected going into production, with testing and everything else and limited amount of people on set, and keeping people even when they get to production in isolated positions. Safety is key all the way across for our crew and our talent. It’s a lot of extra work, a lot of extra money, but it’s worth it to produce this.”

The Masked Singer is currently the one show on the Fox fall schedule that has not already been filmed. The idea of a live audience is still being discussed.

“We’re still going over plans for a possible audience. We’re not shooting for a while so we’ll see what happens in the next few months,” he said.

There are four Fox shows that might still be cancelled…
