Is It Any Good?

Parents say Not yet rated
Kids say (1 ):

This lively series offers audiences a colorful array of performances set to popular music. It attempts to separate itself from The Masked Singer by noting that the contestants are award-winning, highly decorated famous people, and that audiences will get to hear their real voices. Nonetheless, thanks to the costume designs, Ken Jeong's schtick, and the show's overall production style, it looks and feels a lot like its parent series.

Some contestants exhibit real skill when they hit the dance floor, despite the fact that they're wearing disguises that impair both their movement and vision. Others seem to do little more than stiffly walk around the stage to a beat. But it's the audience's celebration of all the contestants that makes The Masked Dancer entertaining. If you're looking for serious, well-choreographed routines, you'll want to change the channel. But if you're just looking for some positive, wacky fun, you won't be disappointed.
