Let the next whosungit guessing game begin — early. Fox has set a “The Masked Singer: Super Sneak Peek” special to air on Sunday, Sept. 15 at 8/7c. That’s 10 days before Season 2 of the singing competition premieres, so fans of the network’s smash-hit, oddball series who tune in will get a leg up on figuring out who the new masked celebrity contestants are.
Here’s the description for the special, courtesy of Fox:
Series host Nick Cannon and panelists Ken Jeong, Jenny McCarthy, Nicole Scherzinger and Robin Thicke reflect on the fierce and swift impact the show has had on pop culture since making its debut, and Season One winner and global music sensation T-Pain returns to THE MASKED SINGER stage for a special appearance. The special preview will also be simulcast on the official @MaskedSingerFOX Twitter account, where fans can watch and tweet along with T-Pain and THE MASKED SINGER cast. In the special, viewers will be formally introduced to the new Season Two characters. They may even decode some of the first clues about the new celebrity singers, kicking off the guessing game early!
First-look teasers for the costumes of 14 of the 16 contestants who will compete on Season 2 have already been revealed by the network, including Panda, Butterfly, Egg, Leopard, Flamingo, Skeleton, Fox, Eagle, Ice Cream, Tree and Rottweiler, with the latter three being unveiled in a clip exclusive to TheWrap earlier this month, That video also featured the debut of Masked Singers that appear to be a spider, a rose, and some kind of green, furry creature — though Fox is still holding back the names of those particular contestants.
So here’s hoping we see the costumes of the final two singers competing this season on the special.
According to Fox, “collectively, all of the Season Two undercover celebrities have amassed 69 Emmy Award nominations, 42 Grammy Award nominations, 22 Broadway shows, three New York Times Best Sellers and two have been named Time magazine’s Most Influential People.”
“The Masked Singer” Season 2 debuts with a special two-hour premiere on Wednesday, Sept. 25 at 8/7c on Fox.
