Fox has released the first trailer of Alter ego, a new singing competition that puts singers in motion-capture costumes and lets them control digital avatars during live performances. The unusual concept feels like the hybrid child to American idol and Ready Player One. And you know what? Be in!

Alter ego‘s first look introduces us to the technological marvel of the new singing competition as digital characters come to life thanks to mo-cap suits. Instead of judging a meat-and-bone singer directly, the judging panel is presented with a digital scene in which an avatar performs. The virtual reality environment allows a team of 3D artists to create unique singers for each presentation, while adding light effects that would not be possible on an actual stage. The result may be a little strange at first glance, but it also feels like a dream come true, as singers are no longer limited by the physical limitations of the real world.

Alter ego‘s judging panel is composed by iconic singer / songwriter and seven-time Grammy Award winner Alanis Morissette; actor, singer and TV personality Nick Lachey; acclaimed producer, songwriter, singer and visual artist Grimes; and multi-Grammy Award-winning singer / songwriter, producer, entrepreneur and actor vil.i.am. Emmy award-winning personality Rocsi Diaz will host the musical acting. It may be hard to impress a team of qualified judges, but the candidates will have all the freedom of the digital world to help them put on an unforgettable show.

Alter ego will debut on Fox with a two-night premiere on Wednesday, September 22 and Thursday, September 23 at. 21.00 ET. Check out Alter egosee trailer below.
