The first episode of The Masked Singer aired last night, and it has left audiences divided on one key aspect.
The TV show sees 12 celebrities performing anonymously in elaborate costumes designed by Hwang Jae-geun (including lion, dragon, octopus, monster, wolf, unicorn and prawn costumes) as viewers and a panel of star-studded judges attempt to guess their identity.
While the official stance from Channel 10 is that the artists behind the costumes are singing live, fans aren’t entirely convinced.

Viewers took to Twitter to voice their suspicions.
“So im confused - how is this live?” wrote one user, followed by another, who said, “Hey #MaskedSingerAU, why give mics when they're masked, they're surely not singing live then?!”
Others were more disgruntled at the possibility of The Masked Singer being a farce.
“Everyone knows that no one in singing live on this sh*t right? Literally the worst show on TV,” said one user.
However, judge Jackie O Henderson is adamant that they are singing live.
“I’ve seen a set malfunction happen and something fell on one of the singers and the singing stopped straight away,” Jackie told The Advertiser. “They are singing live – 100 per cent fact.”
Last night, the first secret celebrity was revealed to be former Big Brother host, Gretel Killeen, who performed from inside an Octopus costume.
The Masked Singer airs Monday-Tuesday, 7.30 pm on 10 and WIN Network.
