BANGKOK -- A TV competition featuring masked singers is sweeping Thailand. The show has carved out a unique niche in a country where visual attraction usually holds sway.
"The Mask Singer" features crooners, comedians and even actors who wear masks that match the rest of their outfits. They compete against each other solely on vocal talent. Audience members get caught up in the suspense as they speculate on who the amazing -- or disappointing, as the case may be -- personality is behind each mask.
