Grimes to join judge’s panel for’avatar’ singing competition series Alter Ego


Fox is once again trying to reinvent the singing competition series by merging talent and technology for their forthcoming show Alter Ego.

It was revealed Friday that Grimes would be one of the judges for Alter Ego, alongside Alanis Morissette, will.i.am and Nick Lachey, while Rocsi Diaz will serve as host. 

Dubbed as ‘the world’s first avatar singing competition series’, Alter Ego puts a spin on The Masked Singer by using motion capture and visual effects technology to hide the identity of its contestants.

Alter Ego will feature ‘aspiring singers from all walks of life performing, not as themselves, but as their dream avatars,’ according to the show’s press release.

Basically singers on the show will be performing as their own avatar dream reinvention, or alter ego.

‘Alter Ego merges talent and technology to revolutionize the singing competition show in only a way Fox can do,’ said Rob Wade, FOX Entertainment’s President of Alternative Entertainment and Specials. 

‘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 realize their dreams and perform like never before.’
