Plot Synopsis

Hosted by Nick Cannon, with panelists Ken Jeong, Jenny McCarthy, Nicole Scherzinger and Robin Thicke, THE MASKED SINGER is a top-secret celebrity singing competition that will have everyone asking, "who's behind the mask?!" Based on an international format, and already a viral phenomenon with over half a billion fans worldwide, the series 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. With each performance, the host, panelists, audience, viewers and even the other contestants are left guessing who is singing behind the mask. Although the celebrities' identities are a mystery, between them they have a combined 65 Grammy Award nominations, 16 Emmy Award nominations, four stars on the Hollywood Walk of Fame and four Super Bowl titles. 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 is eliminated by the audience and judges each week, based on their performance, and then reveals his or her true identity.

The ultimate guessing game kicks off in the series premiere with the first six undercover celebrity singers -- Peacock, Hippo, Monster, Unicorn, Deer, and Lion -- facing off against one another in elaborate head-to-toe costumes. The second episode features the remaining six competitors: Pineapple, Poodle, Raven, Alien, Rabbit, and Bee.
On Wednesday, February 27, 2019 from 8-10pm ET/PT, FOX premiered the season finale of THE MASKED SINGER. In the two-hour season ender, "Road to the Finals; Season Finale: The Final Mask Is Lifted," the three remaining finalists -- Bee, Monster, and Peacock -- compete for the golden mask, and one by one their identities are revealed. Host Nick Cannon joins panelists Ken Jeong, Jenny McCarthy, Nicole Scherzinger, Robin Thicke and guest panelist Kenan Thompson. Between all 12 of the celebrity competitors on the show, they've amassed 65 Grammy nominations, 16 multi-Platinum albums, 16 Emmy nominations, nine Broadway shows, four stars on the Hollywood Walk of Fame and four Super Bowl titles. Now, with only these three performers left, hear them sing, get the clues and guess the celebrity.
