'Alter Ego' brings technology to the world of singing competition shows.
In new singing competition Alter Ego, contestants are tasked with reinventing themselves as their dream avatars to perform using motion capture technology.
This futuristic production will be judged by some of the industry's most compelling musicians. Joining the team is seven-time Grammy Award winner will.i.am, influential singer-songwriter Alanis Morissette, and award winning musician and video director Grimes. Also on the judging panel is singer and actor Nick Lachey and Emmy Award-winning television host Rocsi Diaz.
“Alter Ego merges talent and technology to revolutionise the singing competition show in only a way Fox can do,” states Rob Wade, president of alternative entertainment and specials at Fox. “We are so excited to bring the fantastic will.i.am, Alanis, Grimes, Nick and Rocsi together as they search for the next big singing star, allowing incredible vocalists a chance to realise their dreams and perform like never before.”
For Morissette, Alter Ego marks be the second Fox series she’s featured on; she also recurs on the network’s animated comedy The Great North. Lachey was also a contestant on The Masked Singer last season.
Brought to you by the producers of The Masked Singer and The Masked Dancer, Alter Ego will be airing on Wednesdays on FOX in the autumn.
