Using CGI Audience For The Show
The Masked Singer is expected to, through the use of CGI audience and cutaway audience of the previous show to make viewers feel the competitors are performing for them; but due to Covid 19, they couldn’t be there. Breen and Robin Thicke agreed on the need for such sophistication. According to them, it stemmed out of the fact that the pandemic has deprived that communal sense from a lot of people. Thus, the show will serve as escapism from reality whilst offering great content.
