Bleeding Cool's resident expert Tiffany Tchobanian has been tracking FOX's second season of The Masked Singer, offering her wisdom when it comes to what to expect (check out her most recent review here) – and that continues on this week with "Clash of the Masks". 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 – and FOX is giving you a ton of preview clips to shift your brains into "guessing mode".
Take a look (with preview images and episode overview included, below) and get yourselves up-to-speed before tonight's next round:
"The Masked Singer" Season 2 "Clash of the Masks": Four more of the remaining celebrities take on their next round of dazzling performances. Host Nick Cannon and panelists Ken Jeong, Jenny McCarthy, Nicole Scherzinger and Robin Thicke attempt to guess the identities of fully costumed Hollywood stars as they battle in TV's biggest singing competition. Will one of your favorites be revealed?
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!"
