“The Masked Singer” is expanding its guest-judge roster for Season 3, adding comedian Gabriel Iglesias and “Lego Master” host Will Arnett to the temporary panelist lineup for the current installment of Fox’s wacky singing competition, a network spokesperson told TheWrap Tuesday.

In returning guest-star news, “Masked Singer” Season 1 winner T-Pain, a.k.a. The Monster, and Joel McHale, a veteran guest judge at this point, will be back this season to assist full-time panelists Jenny McCarthy, Ken Jeong, Robin Thicke and Nicole Scherzinger.

Those four join a Season 3 guest-judge roster and currently includes Jamie Foxx (who appeared on the special post-Super Bowl LIV season premiere), Fox’s “Outmatched” star Jason Biggs (who was on Episode 302) and Leah Remini, who will appear on Wednesday’s Valentine’s Day-themed episode.

Tomorrow’s episode will see the four remaining contestants in Group A — Miss Monster, White Tiger, Kangaroo and Turtle –compete to find out who gets unmasked and who gets to move forward in this season’s tournament-style elimination rounds.

Per Fox, “The format will be changing slightly in season three. The contestants will be split into three groups of six – Group A, B, and C. Group A will kick off the first three episodes as they whittle down from 6 to 3 singers. Then we will meet Group B as they go from 6 to 3, then Group C. The final 9 contestants from these three groups will then come together and battle it out the rest of the season for the golden mask trophy. As always, one celebrity will still be unmasked in every episode, including the premiere.”

Along with the now-eliminated Llama (who was revealed to be Drew Carey) and Robot (real identity Lil Wayne), the full Season 3 lineup of masked contestants includes Banana, Miss Monster, Frog, Mouse, Kangaroo, White Tiger, Turtle, Astronaut, Swan, Kitty, Bear, Elephant, Rhino, T-Rex, Night Angel and Taco. Between those 18 contestants they’ve “amassed 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,” according to Fox.

Entertainment Weekly first reported the news of Iglesias and Arnett’s upcoming stints as “Masked Singer” guest judges and T-Pain and McHale’s returns.

“The Masked Singer” airs Wednesdays at 8/7c on Fox.
