It's getting annoying now - surely we can agree that once unmasked it's fair game. Really guesses aren't spoilers either.

Indeed the irony of this show is they need the "detectives" to not be very good - knowledgeable enough to throw out some plausible names, but not guessing every single one at first sight.

Must say the only weakness, and perhaps it's because of the trickery required to keep it secret, is the unmasking. It just all feels a bit cheap.
It's great that everybody gets sarcasm.

It is a lot quicker than the aussie version where looking on you tube the celebs take ages and ages to pull the mask off.

Excellent ratings.

I do wonder
if older audiences will drift away once they work out the show is targeted at the under 50's and the reveals won't be as satisfying for them - from the peak we know the reveal is the part the audience is enjoying the most.

Don't mock - for people like my parents the lineup is poor because they is no fun for them guessing those they never heard of.

But not every parent is like yours though, some might be vaguely up to date with music. Can we just agree to disagree that some acts might be familiar to some people and not to some. It's fun at the end of the day, not a marketing brief.
