It's kind of a glorious gateway drug to the fandom; the Masked Singer, that is! A show which originally began in Asia with rather cheesy costumed singers, Masked Singer has transitioned to the U.S., and is now in its second season. Playing like a hybrid of American Idol , a furry convention, and The Gong Show passed through psychoactive medication, Masked Singer features "celebrity" singers in full body costumes belting out popular song hits, some much better than others. Some of the contestants are professional singers, while others are athletes, comedians, and media people. It's essentially an elimination competition, and a high percentage of the contestants are in furry costumes, some of which are rather spectacular. Shown in the picture are Flower, Eagle, Penguin, and (sigh!) Fox. The past season included a memorable Rabbit, Peacock, and Lioness.

The show also features an enthusiastic celebrity panel of judges, and a whipped-up audience who make hand gestures evocative of the performers. While neither the performers nor the audience identifies publicly as furry, the show makes for a great outreach program. The Masked Singer plays on (what else) the Fox network in the U.S...

I saw some previews of this show not long ago, and my first thoughts were that they're literally in fursuits, and that this show would attract a lot of furries. I am unsurprised, but pleased, to see those assumptions were correct.

Here's my personal fave from Season 1; the Rabbit, who was Joey Fatone. He appeared to be wearing a straitjacket, and had that touch of madness, fresh-from-the-asylum quality. From his boy band days, this guy could dance as well as sing. His debut performance of Livin' la Vida Loca was a knockout!

I see it's available on Hulu. I may have to give this a watch. It definitely looks like something I'd make a habit of. :smile: Great recommendation as I've been trying to find something other than Hells Kitchen or Kitchen Nightmares in terms of game shoes to watch.

Oi! Your bloody fursuit is so badly done, it looks like a fucking rat's hairy arse!

Here's "Peacock" from Season 1; I won't spoil his identity reveal for you if you're watching the the first year of the series, but he brought a polished "Vegas" type vibe to his performances, kind of like Elvis with feathers...

Triumph the Insult Comic Dog appeared as a guest panelist on the latest edition of The Masked Singer in a case of furries judging furries. Things got crazier than usual when Triumph revealed that he was contestant Rottweiler's sire; "I never thought I'd see you again after I left your Mom," contended Triumph.

The season finale of The Masked Singer was a three-way battle between The Flamingo, The Fox, and The Rottweiler. I had rather figured that it would ultimately come down to a close one between Rottweiler and Fox, and I was proven right; both deserved to win. A spoiler now follows, so stop reading if you want to discover the ultimate victor and his identity on your own...

The Fox won the competition, and as some of the judges had correctly guessed was revealed to be...Wayne Brady, a multi-talented song/dance/comedy guy whose current regular gig is as game show host to Let's Make A Deal. Rottweiler was revealed to be another strong performer, Chris Daughtry. This show is a great one for furries, and there will be a third season in which two of the performers a preview revealed will be a mouse and a robot...
