The Mask Singer (Thai: เดอะแมสค์ซิงเงอร์ หน้ากากนักร้อง), also known as (The Mask Singer หน้ากากนักร้อง), is a Thai singing competition program presented by Kan Kantathavorn. It had first aired on October 6, 2016 and runs every Thursday at 8:15 p.m. on Workpoint TV.[1][2]

Creation[edit]

Workpoint TV was offered the airing rights for South Korea's reality show King of Mask Singer, but they decided to purchase rights for the Shows 'Let Me In' and 'I Can See Your Voice' instead. When a Chinese company decided to produce their own version of King of Mask Singer, Workpoint TV then decided to purchase rights to King of Mask Singer.

Format[edit]

The contestants are broken up into four groups, each group containing 8 masked celebrities. Each episode consists of two pairs of battling contestants, up until the final for each group, where the contestants perform a duet before battling it out. [2][3]

The winner reveals their identity in the last episode of each season, unlike the Korean and Chinese versions, where the winner continues into the next season, only revealing their identity after a defeat.

The contestants are prompted to sing a song of their choice and design a unique costume with a team of designers. Each costume covers the entirety of the contestant's body, unlike in the Korean and Chinese versions, which only require face covering.

The identity of each contestant is kept confidential. When they arrive at the studio, staff members bring them cloaks to conceal their identity. Before filming the show, each contestant has to sign a contract ensuring they keep their identity a secret. During rehearsals, their voices are modified. The staff members who are authorized to know contestants' identity such as makeup artists, costume designers, the director, and studio staff, have signed contracts to keep it confidential. When editing the footage and audio, they lock the doors to stop anyone from looking through.[4]
