Fox is launching Alter Ego, a new reality singing competition series coming this fall. Building off the success of the anonymous Masked Singer concept, the show gives contestants the chance to “reinvent themselves and perform like never before” in their dream avatar alter egos.

“Alter Ego merges talent and technology to revolutionize the singing competition show in only a way Fox can do,” Rob Wade, Fox’s president of alternative entertainment and specials, said in a statement. The judging panel will consist of Grimes, Will.i.am, Alanis Morrissette, and Nick Lachey, with Emmy Award-Winning Rocsi Diaz serving as the host. While contestants appear in avatars utilizing motion capture and visual effects, the judges will gather in real life to gauge the performance of the aspiring singers.
