On FOX‘s second season of The Masked Singer, we are now down to four celebrity contestants heading into “Mask and You Shall Receive”. Host Nick Cannon and panelists Ken Jeong, Jenny McCarthy, Nicole Scherzinger, Robin Thicke, and guest Joel McHale are back for another round of identity-guessing as our “Final Four” battle it out for the title.
But as you’re about to see in the following preview, it appears the folks at The Masked Singer have a few tricks still left up their costumed sleeves – including the biggest surprise unmasking yet?
As a reminder, here’s what the show wanted us to know about this season’s competitors: our undercover celebrities have 69 Emmy Award nominations, 42 Grammy Award nominations, 22 Broadway shows, three New York Times Best Sellers, and two were named TIME magazine’s “Most Influential People”.
THE MASKED SINGER is television’s #1 new show, captivating a massive audience of more than 17 million multi-platform viewers in its record-breaking debut. The singing competition series is hosted by Nick Cannon and features panelists Jenny McCarthy, Nicole Scherzinger, Ken Jeong and Robin Thicke.
The show features celebrities facing off against one another with one major twist: each singer is shrouded from head to toe in an elaborate costume, complete with full face mask to conceal his or her identity. Season Two boasts 16 celebrity singers in all-new costumes and masks, including The Flamingo, The Leopard and The Egg.
With each performance, the host, panelists, audience, viewers and even the other contestants are left guessing who is singing behind the mask. Ranging from Grammy Award winners to legendary athletes, and everything in between, the singers may attempt to throw the crowd off of their scent, while keen observers might pick up on tiny clues buried throughout the show. One singer will be eliminated each week, ultimately revealing his or her true identity. It’s not a “whodunit,” it’s a “whosungit!”
