When does the Masked Dancer Start? FOX unveils Winter Premiere Dates
When does The Masked Dancer 2021 start? FOX announces premiere dates for The Masked Dancer (Dec. 27) and more on their Winter 2021 schedule.
The Masked Dancer will premiere on Sunday December 29 after the NFL on FOX double header. The new series moves to it’s permanent Wednesday timeslot on January 6. The show is probably holding the spot until the spring cycle of The Masked Singer premieres.
Based on the smash hit FOX series The Masked Singer and inspired by a popular segment featured on The Ellen DeGeneres Show, The Masked Dancer is hosted by comedian/actor Craig Robinson (Ghosted, The Office) and features celebrity panelists Ken Jeong (The Masked Singer, I Can See Your Voice), choreographer, singer and former American Idol judge Paula Abdul, actor and the former “Giraffe” Mask on The Masked Singer Brian Austin Green and actress and singer Ashley Tisdale.
The Masked Dancer will feature celebrity contestants shaking their tail feathers, while covered from head-to-toe in elaborate costumes and face masks, leaving audiences to guess their identities. Costumed celebrities will be joined on stage by masked partners and back-up dancers, as they perform a series of dances together; spanning from hip-hop to salsa, jazz to tap dancing and more. Each week, a series of clues will be sprinkled throughout packages, costumes and routines, leading the panelists one step closer to figuring out which famous faces are freestyling behind the masks.
