‘The Masked Singer’ Sneak Peek Special Before The Premiere
The Masked Singer was the surprise hit no one saw coming. Not even us. And it’s our job to know.
But the Korean import became a nationwide sensation. Before the season 2 premiere on September 25th, the show is going to give us a sneak peek special to whet our Masked Singer appetites.
The sneak peek special will be on September 15th at 8/7c on Fox and will have judges Robin Thicke, Jenny McCarthy, Ken Jeong, and Nicole Scherzinger talking to host Nick Cannon about the series. Last season’s winner T-Pain will also be on hand to reveal the characters competing this year. The Fox press release says,
“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!“
Masked Singer Season 2 Will Be Even Weirder
So, the guessing game will begin even before the series premiere. We’re going to put our detective, writer Kyle Montplaisir, on the case. Last year he was 100% right in all his guesses. We’ve heard that this season the clues are going to be harder. The best part of the show is not so much the performances but trying to figure out which celebrity is behind the mask.
We wrote an article going through the costumes we know for this season. There is everything from a weird egg dude to a jaguar in an Elizabethan ruff. What’s that about? I don’t know. Truth is that this show should not have worked here in the United States. It was a huge hit in South Korea but they have a higher tolerance for weirdness. Everyone thought Masked Singer was going to crash and burn. And yet, Americans went nuts for the show. Personally, we cannot wait. This is quickly becoming our favorite show to cover.
