Avatar Singing Competition Series Bowing on FOX


Alter Ego, a first-of-its-kind avatar singing competition series, is slated to premiere this fall on FOX.

In the show, the contestants, instead of singing as themselves, will perform as their dream avatar. They’ll get a chance at reinvention while showcasing their performance styles via motion-capture technology. Alter Ego’s panel of judges will include Alanis Morissette, Grimes and will.i.am, and will be hosted by Rocsi Diaz.

Rob Wade, FOX Entertainment’s president of alternative entertainment and specials, said: “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.”
