A new singing competition show on FOX is coming. The network announced on Instagram that Alter Ego — a.k.a. “the world’s first avatar singing competition series” — is slated to air this fall, featuring Grimes, Alanis Morissette, will.i.am., Nick Lachey, and Rosci Diaz as its judges. Fox also shared a video clip about the upcoming show.
Alter Ego will use motion capture technology to transform its participants into their “dream avatars.” Rob Wade, Fox’s president of alternative entertainment and specials, said in a press release: “Alter Ego merges talent and technology to revolutionize the singing competition show in only a way Fox can do. 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.”
A premiere date has not been set for “Alter Ego,” but is expected to be revealed soon.
