ALTER Ego judge Nick Lachey admitted he felt “old” being on the show alongside Grimes and during the premiere, some fans felt she was “unnatural.”
“I’ve never felt older in my life than sitting next to Grimes on a judging panel,” Lachey told Page Six. “Because the way her mind operates and the things that she understands, I don’t even begin to grasp how those things are working.”
Meanwhile, some fans on Twitter weren’t loving Grimes as a judge on the competition series.
“Why is Elon Musk’s weird girlfriend/wife Grimes on Alter Ego? It doesn’t feel natural to see her on a competition show like that?” someone said on the social media platform.
Fox’s Alter Ego premiered Wednesday at 9pm, before part two of its debut special airs on Thursday.
The show sees contestants battle it out for a $100,000 prize, however, they’ll perform off-stage while their augmented-reality avatars try to wow the judges who are watching on monitors.
The new show is hosted by Rocsi Diaz, with Alanis Morissette, Grimes, Nick Lachey, and willi.i.am serving as judges.
