So when the dust settled on Group A's "wildcard round" during last week's round of FOX's The Masked Singer, it was Raccoon aka the Jenny McCarthy-loving, baddest man on the planet Danny Trejo who ended up leaving the stage for good. This week, Niecy Nash returns to host for Nick Cannon, joining panelists McCarthy, Ken Jeong, Nicole Scherzinger, and Robin Thicke as they welcome Group B to this "wildcard" life: Black Swan, Chameleon, Grandpa Monster, and Piglet. Here's a look at a set of preview images of what viewers can expect this Wednesday night- followed by a sneak preview and an updated look at the masks that remain (including Orca).
