5 January 2019 | by leeannablackmanSee all my reviews

This is my first review because I feel like the hundred-something votes don't do this show any justice. With that being said, I've only seen the first episode, so I can't say that it is going to continue to be as exciting. What I do know is that my entire family was engrossed within the first 10 minutes, and my dad is excited for the next shows. He isn't one to get excited about competition shows (like AGT and The Voice), but he keeps talking about how he can't wait for the last episode to reveal the performers. I realize that some people are going into this show expecting the stars to be top celebrities and that some of them aren't is "disappointing," but I think it makes it more exciting because you dont know if the person behind the mask is Hollywood fame or YouTube fame. Secondly, I like that the judges each have very different backgrounds because that gives even more outrageous guesses about whose behind the mask and makes it more exciting at the end to laugh at how ridiculous some of the guesses are. Finally, I also like the audience gets a say in who moves on each week because that gives an element of viewer choice; even though the people watching the show from a screen don't have a say.
