It's playoffs time, folks! We're talking about for Group B on FOX's third season of The Masked Singer – just in case there's any sports confusion going on. So what's that mean? That means that host Nick Cannon and panelists Ken Jeong, Jenny McCarthy, Nicole Scherzinger, and Robin Thicke – along with guest panelist comedian/actor Gabriel Iglesias (and Bleeding Cool's resident The Masked Singer expert/critic Tiffany Tchobanian) – have Frog, Kitty, Taco, Mouse, and Banana still in play heading into "Mask-Matics: Group B Playoffs".
Here's a look at what viewers can expect this week – along with a few preview images highlighting our remaining group competitors:
"The Masked Singer" season 3, episode 5 "Mask-Matics: Group B Playoffs": The singers in GROUP B return to the stage for their "playoff" performances, as comedian and actor Gabriel Iglesias joins the panelists at the desk. Host Nick Cannon and panelists Ken Jeong, Jenny McCarthy, Nicole Scherzinger and Robin Thicke dive into the clues and make their guesses for the celebrity singers performing under their masks.
Here's a look at how the new format works this season for our 18 celebrity question marks:
● Singers will be split into three groups of six: Group A, Group B, and Group C.
● Group A will kick off the first three episodes as they are whittled down to three singers, taking off masks as they go. Then Group B will take the stage as they go from six to three, then Group C.
● The final nine masked contestants from all three groups will then come together as they continue to battle for the Golden Mask Trophy.
● Season 3's singers have earned a combined 69 Grammy Award nominations, 88 Gold records, 11 Super Bowl appearances, three stars on the Hollywood Walk of Fame, more than 160 tattoos, and one title in the Guinness Book of World Records.
Iglesias and Will Arnett (LEGO Masters) were announced to be joining the team this season as guest panelists prior to the season debut, along with familiar faces T-Pain (our season 1 winner) and Joel McHale.
