The Masked Singer Format and Cast
Each season of The Masked Singer features a group of celebrity contestants. In a typical episode, four to six contestants each sing a 90-second cover for panelists and an audience anonymously in costume. Hints to their identities—known as the “clue package”—are given before and occasionally after each performs. The perennial format is a taped interview with a celebrity’s electronically masked voice narrating a video showing cryptic allusions to what they are known for.
During screenings of the clue packages, after performances, and before elimination, the panelists are given time to speculate each singer’s identity out loud and write comments in note binders. They may ask questions and the host may offer additional clues After the performances conclude, the audience and panelists vote for their favorite singer using an electronic device.
The show uses a weighted voting system; panelists’ and audience members’ votes are worth 50 percent each and combined to form a score. The least popular contestant then takes off their mask to reveal their identity. This process of elimination continues for a set number of episodes until three contestants remain in the season finale, and one is declared the winner after they perform again. The “Golden Mask” trophy is awarded as a prize.
Coming to the cast members, the expected contestants for the upcoming season include The Piglet: Nick Lachey, The Black Swan: JoJo, The Chameleon: Wiz Khalifa, Cluedle-Doo: Donnie Wahlberg, The Russian Dolls: Hanson, The Robopine: Tyrese Gibson, The Crab: Bobby Brown, The Seashell: Tamera Mowry-Housley.
