With this week's round of FOX's The Masked Singer, the final two masks in Group A (Bull & Skunk) compete to see who will represent the group in the two-part Grand Finale (with Group B's Banana Split & Queen of Hearts on tap for next week). So it's up to host Nick Cannon, fellow panelists Jenny McCarthy, Ken Jeong, Nicole Scherzinger, and Robin Thicke, and this week's celebrity duet partners Jesse McCartney and Michael Bolton to decide who gets to go on and who gets an unmasking. Yesterday, we offered you a look at preview images and featurettes as well as an updated rundown on the masks & clues that are still in play. This time around, we get a chance to check in with Bull and Skunk's celebrity duet partners.

As we mentioned previously, with a new season come changes, with the two-part kick-off seeing a double unmasking and two new Wildcards joining the competition on the second night. As for the season overall, there will be two groups (Group A & Group B), with the winner of each group competing against each other in the season finale in the ultimate "Mask-Off Face-Off". And then there's the game-changing "Take It Off Buzzer". Here's how it works: let's say a panelist is 103% certain of who is behind a mask, they hit the buzzer at any point to offer the name. If they're right? The contestant heads home immediately and the panelist gets two points towards the Golden Ear Trophy. But if the panelist is wrong, there's a price to pay. While the contestant stays in the competition, the panelist who missed the mark loses two points towards the big prize. And not everyone gets a shot at it because there's only one in play in Group A and one in play for Group B.
