This is a singing competition on FOX where the contestants sing backstage while motion capture technology creates digital avatars that appear in their place.

Helllllllllloooooooo anybody!

This is growing on me. Most of the singers are really talented.  For some it's sad they have to give themselves blonde hair or a skinny body to have confidence.

My only issue is that most of the singers sound alike--the typical type voice that wins American Idol. I like unusual singers.

I find it odd to listen to the judges compliment the singers on the qualities of their avatars, when it’s some offstage visual artists who are responsible for them. Otherwise, we find the singing entertaining enough.

If the setup shots are true, the Avatars are a combination of the Visual FX artists and the singers, so the singers do deserve some degree of praise for their avatar looks. The Visual FX artists are just implementing what the artists are describing.

That said, some of the avatars and FX are better than others. I guess it comes down with how imaginative the singer is, and how well the FX shots line up with the songs. 

I'd love to see a few more "Behind the Scenes" of the show; specifically the stage setup. Are the judges just watching the screens overhead and the actual stage is only used for the reveal (and for the broadcast), or are there some more advanced tricks in play?

 

I think we have at least 2 contestants who have Avatars that are the opposite sex of their own (or at least the avatar is more androgynous). It'll be interesting to see how everyone reacts when they are revealed. (Which is intentional of course). The guy who did Whitney was surprisingly good; I'm curious to see how far he goes.
