6. The Voice

Title art for the reality singing show, The Voice.

Never judge a book by its cover — just as the famous coaches of The Voice never judge a singer by their looks. Unlike other singing competitions, contestants have the opportunity to be moved to the second round of the competition solely based on their musical ability rather than their appearance. 

Catch coaches Kelly Clarkson, Blake Shelton, Niall Horan, and Chance the Rapper as their talented teams compete against each other every Monday at 8:00 p.m. EST throughout the season with Hulu + Live TV.*

7. The Masked Singer

Title art for the reality TV show, The Masked Singer.

Most aspiring musicians go on a competition show in hopes of getting their big break in the industry, but not these contestants. The Masked Singer challengers have already made a name for themselves as actors, athletes, comedians, musicians, politicians, streamers, and influencers. 

Through elaborate costumes and voice distortion, the identity of each contestant is kept top secret — even from host Nick Cannon and judges, Robin Thicke, Jenny McCarthy, Ken Jeong, and Nicole Scherzinger. The only way to guess the celebrity underneath the costume is by listening closely to their singing voice and catching the subtle clues given throughout the season. 

Season 9 is currently underway with new episodes airing Wednesdays at 8:00 p.m. EST on FOX. Catch it live with a Hulu + Live TV subscription,* or stream new episodes the next day (Thursdays) on Hulu’s streaming library.
