An all-star line up of panellists has been, well, unmasked for Network 10's new reality series The Masked Singer Australia.
Lindsay Lohan (yes, the same Lindsay Lohan of Mean Girls, The Parent Trap and Freaky Friday) joins the Australian series, alongside fellow panellists Danni Minogue, Jackie O and Dave Hughes. The judges will be joined on the show by host Osher Günsberg.
For those who don't know, The Masked Singer is a popular reality show from the US, which sees 12 celebrities take the stage hidden beneath bizarre disguises. The panel of industry experts take a handful of clues and the sound of the celebrity's voice to try figure out who is behind the mask.
Since her days as one of Hollywood's most bankable young stars, Lindsay has been dabbling in stage productions (London West End production of Speed-the-Plow), television shows (Sick Note) and most recently had one season of her own reality series (Lindsay Lohan's Beach Club).
On making the trip to Australia to join The Masked Singer, the 33-year-old star says she's excited.
"The show has already been a huge success and I can only imagine it will get bigger," Lindsay reveals.
"Each week will be so exciting to watch who performs and try and guess who's behind the masks. I feel honoured to sit on the panel and be a part of such an amazing show."
With years of judging reality TV competitions including The X Factor, Australia's Got Talent and Dance Boss under her belt, Dannii brings a wealth of experience to the series. Though, she insists this show will stand out.
"The Masked Singer is an incredible show that already has fans around the world," Dannii, 47, says. "I love the music, drama of the costumes, the fun of guessing the performers, and most of all the tension when the performer is revealed.
"It is the first singing show that is voted on performance alone, till the very end. There is so much secrecy about the performers, that I think this show will be a hot ticket - my friends are already trying to get an audience seat!"
Jackie, 44, has been on the airwaves for decades, making her a force to be reckoned with.
On why she's decided to take her place on the guessing panel, Jackie says she was hooked on the unique concept.
"I was really excited by the concept, it's so unique and like nothing we've seen on Australian TV before. I love that everyone can play along at home trying to guess which celebrities are under the mask. I'm also excited for my daughter to see it, she will love it."
Finally, Dave will be sure to bring the laughs to the panel with his signature humour.
"Never has the phrase 'thorn between the roses' been more apt," says the 48-year-old comedian. "I will attempt to give the common man's view while sitting amongst these goddesses."
The Masked Singer Australia is coming soon to 10 And WIN Network.
