Why was The Masked Singer audience not wearing face masks?

THE Masked Singer recently confused viewers at home as there appeared to be a live studio audience not wearing masks.

It turns out that the show’s creators used old footage to pretend there was a real audience.

Why was The Masked Singer audience not wearing face masks?

Fear not – no one was breaking social distancing rules as the audience wasn’t actually there.

Instead crew used camera tricks to make it look as though people were in the studio.

In the world’s new normal, it could be comforting to see signs of how things were filmed pre-pandemic.

Executive Producer Craig Plestis said: “You’ll see a lot of differences this season too with the virtual reality stuff, with the animation, with adding America’s votes — since we couldn’t have a full audience of 300 people, though we’re utilizing some audience footage from past seasons to get that audience feel.”

He continued: “We want to make sure our show comes back and doesn’t feel like a Zoom show.

“And for myself, as a viewer, not a producer, when I come home at the end of the day, I want to watch TV. I don’t want to watch another Zoom.

“I Zoom almost 24/7, so that’s the last thing I want to see is little boxes. I want to watch my old TV show.”

The Masked Singer used lots of camera tricks to fake the appearance of an audience

Does The Masked Singer have a live studio audience?

The show is always pre-recorded, so it’s never happening live as it’s airing.

Currently due to social distancing measures it isn’t possible to have a regular audience.

In the meantime the show is using a virtual audience plus camera tricks to make the studio look full.

What camera tricks did the show use to make it look like there was an audience?

Craig explained: “We’re augmenting some of the clapping and stuff to get that audience feel, kind of like what sports does.”

Mostly the creators used old footage to create the feeling of a studio audience.

They used editing and virtual reality to make the room feel bigger and fuller too.

Quarantining was involved as well, because some people were filmed doing reactions which were then put onto the show.

Will there be a live studio audience in the future?

It’s currently unknown what the future plans for the show’s audience are.

For the foreseeable it looks like camera tricks will continue to give the illusion of a live studio audience.

There won’t be any changes while social distancing is in place.
