Fox’s new reality singing competition, featuring an all-star judging panel of musicians, just got a primo debut spot this fall.

Alter Ego will debut over two nights, September 22 and September 23, at 9 p.m. ET, right after the sixth season premiere of the network’s smash hit The Masked SingerAlter Ego features celebrity judges Nick Lachey, Alanis Morissette, of Black Eyed Peas and Canadian artist Grimes, also known as Elon Musk‘s romantic partner.

Alter Ego’s contestants will be “aspiring singers from all walks of life,” but they won’t be performing as themselves. Instead, they’ll be portrayed by digital avatars, which show them how they’ve always wanted to be seen.  The avatars will mirror each singer’s individual performance style via motion capture technology.
