Alter Ego, first announced back in July, is described as “the world’s first avatar singing competition series” and will make use of motion capture technology to present contestants as their “dream avatars”.

In a press release, Rob Wade, the president of Fox’s alternative entertainment and specials department, said: “Alter Ego merges talent and technology to revolutionise the singing competition show in only a way Fox can do.
“We are so excited to bring the fantastic will.i.am, Alanis, Grimes, Nick and Rocsi together as they search for the next big singing star, allowing incredible vocalists a chance to realise their dreams and perform like never before.”
Elsewhere, Grimes has revealed that she doesn’t appear on Lady Gaga’s new ‘Chromatica’ remix album ‘Dawn of Chromatica’ – blaming a “sibling rivalry” between her and executive producer BloodPop.
Released today (September 3), ‘Dawn of Chromatica’ sees the likes of Ashnikko, Charli XCX, Rina Sawayama, Bree Runway and Dorian Electra rework tracks from the original record. According to BloodPop, “it’s insanely good”.
Recently, Grimes took to TikTok to defend her boyfriend Elon Musk, captioning a ‘Is he hot or…’ video with the message “Stop harassing me on this app over fake news and I am not my bf’s spokesperson.”
