These shows are just getting ridiculous now.

Even though it's a bizarre concept, there's no denying The Masked Singer is one of the most successful new TV shows in recent years!

The premise, which first originated in South Korea before being adapted for other countries, involves celebrities singing in mad costumes while the judges and audience have to guess who they are.

And The Masked Dancer followed the same concept only with - you guessed it - dancers in mad costumes.

Now Netflix have launched a series that seems to be, eh, kind of along the same lines!

It's called Dance Monsters and it's a competition show involving dancers disguised as CGI avatars. They're not celebrities this time, they're amateur dancers hoping to get a second shot at success and the chance to win $250,000 if they impress the judges.

It's nearly like a mix between The Masked Dancer, The Voice and Strictly Come Dancing. Why the dancers have to hide between CGI avatars, we don't know! We guess it's all part of the entertainment 😂

Check out the trailer below:

The show is going to be hosted by Ashlee Roberts from the Pussycat Dolls, and the judging panel includes Ashley Banjo from Diversity, the singer Neyo and Youtuber Lele Pons.

Dance Monsters is a competition like none other and I had an absolute blast as a judge,” said Ne-Yo. “I’m thrilled for viewers to watch on Netflix, celebrate the culture of dancing and enjoy pure entertainment.”

Dance Monsters Season 1 will consist of eight 40-minute episodes and will be slowly released in batches over the month of December, starting on Friday the 16th.
