How the Masked Singer Works
How the Masked Singer works is a group of celebrities anonymously wear costumes and compete against one another over a series of episodes. In each episode, the contestants perform their choice of song in their real voice. A live vote is done by the audience and panelists to decide who goes home. The eliminated singer will take their masks of revealing their identity.
Clue packages for each singer are shown before their performances to help guess their identity. Which sometimes can be even more confusing but meant to throw us off because they don’t always go together. Panelists make guesses about who they think it is based on clues and performances.
Season Five Twist
The Masked Singer is introducing a new twist for season five. So, the competition show will include several wild cards that will appear during the live shows for the first time. There will be ten main contestants that are split into Group A and Group B like usual. Wild card singers will take the stage at the end of the episode for a chance to unseat someone in that group.
If a wild card contestant advances to the next round, he or she will be in the running for the Golden Mask trophy in the end. Season five features competitors with some impressive accolades such as twenty-six Grammy nominations, nine platinum singles, three super bowl appearances, and six gold medals.
