The Masked Singer is based on the South Korean series King of Mask Singer. 12 celebrities will appear and compete on the show but will wear elaborate masks and costumes to conceal their identity. Meanwhile, show panelists Ken Jeong, Jenny McCarthy, Nicole Scherzinger and Robin Thicke will play detective as hints about the celebs’ identities are revealed during each episode. When each celebrity is eliminated, their true identity will be known.
Exactly who are these celebrities? According to FOX, the competitors are household names and have a combined 65 Grammy nominations, 16 multi-Platinum albums, 16 Emmy nominations, 9 Broadway shows, 4 Super Bowl titles, and 4 stars on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. Not a bad roster.
