The Flamingo is getting all verklempt!

In EW’s exclusive sneak peek from tonight’s installment of The Masked Singer, the Flamingo appears to get choked up as she reveals how “she was shaking in her feathers” when she started the Fox show.

“Each performance has helped me build my confidence,” the Flamingo continues. “Now, I feel like I can do anything.”

So is it Adrienne Bailon from the Cheetah Girls and cohost of The Real or what??

In tonight’s episode dubbed “Masked and You Shall Receive,” Joel McHale returns as a guest judge, and the Smackdown challenge is back: The Flamingo faces off against the Leopard, and the Flower goes toe to toe with the Rottweiler. Tonight’s reveal, promises Fox, will be the biggest one yet this season.

The Masked Singer is racing to the finish line of Season 2 this week with two new episodes. The Fox musical competition/celebrity guessing game will air Tuesday at 8 p.m. ET with a new episode, along with another new hour set to air at its regular time Wednesday. The double dose of the show comes as the show gets closer to unveiling its Season 2 winner, with the season finale scheduled to air next week.

Tonight’s episode is titled “A Pain in the Mask” with the official description reading: “The remaining six masked singers deliver some of their most exciting performances yet, as they all come together for the first time on a special Tuesday night.”

Wednesday’s new hour will mark the season’s semifinals round, in an episode titled “Two Masks Take It Off: Holiday Semi-Finals.”

“The remaining masked celebrities compete for a spot in the finals; two celebrities are unwrapped.” The remaining contestants before Tuesday’s new episode include Thingamajig, Flamingo, Tree, Rottweiler, Leopard and Fox.

The special two-night airing comes nearly a week since the latest celebrity unmasking revealed the Butterfly was Michelle Williams of Destiny’s Child fame. The singer performed a beautiful rendition of Demi Lovato’s “Sorry Not Sorry” but failed to steal the hearts of the judges and audience to stay in the competition.

After being unmasked, Williams admitted she was disappointed to be eliminated before she could perform a cover of her former bandmate and close friend Beyoncé’s song.

“I wanted to do Beyoncé’s ‘Love on Top.’ If I’d stayed on a little longer, it’s a possibility that I would’ve been able to perform that song,” she told TV Insider last week.

“The Masked Singer was probably one of the top things I’ve ever done in my life because of how I was made to feel. You can be on some of the biggest stages in the world, but it doesn’t mean nothing if you didn’t feel good afterwards. I’m not saying that’s the case with other stages I’ve been on. I’ve felt great,” she said.


“But I felt really, really good, especially solo-wise, something by myself, being on a show week after week on mainstream TV with an audience. I’m mostly known for gospel, and a lot of gospel isn’t really on mainstream networks, so it was really cool to have that experience,” she added.

The Masked Singer will air Tuesday and Wednesday at 8 p.m. ET this week on Fox.

There are only three episodes left of the second season of the hit Fox series, but will the ninth episode be airing tonight? Find out if there is a new episode of The Masked Singer tonight.

The latest episode was a thrilling affair and saw the return of the smackdown round. Flower and Rottweiler went head to head with the former singing “Don’t Cha” by the Pussycat Dolls and the latter getting down to some “Eye of the Tiger.” Unfortunately, the Flower power ran out because that mask came off to reveal Patti Labelle, the icon responsible for such classic tracks as “Lady Marmalade” and “New Attitude.”

The epic conclusion to last week’s affair left fans wanting more, and the anticipation for the next iteration is at an all-time high. So the only question remains, when will the world get their next dose of The Masked Singer?

The bad news is there is no new episode airing tonight. Instead of enjoying some great tunes from masked performers on Thanksgiving, people will have to settle on just being thankful The Masked Singer has a new episode on its way sooner than later.

The next episode, appropriately titled “Clash of the Masks,” will air Wednesday, Dec. 8 at 8 p.m. EST on FOX. For those worried that this hiatus behavior may become a cruel trend, have no fear.

The final two episodes of The Masked Singer’s sophomore season will air on back-to-back nights not long after. The first will arrive on Tuesday, Dec. 10 at 8 p.m. EST and the final episode will be Wednesday, Dec.11 at 8 p.m. EST.

Another Day, Another Assignment: Ray, Freddy

Ray gets yet another job from Freddy, but this one seems legit. It requires him killing an associate, but with the price being 250 with a 100 upfront, with no qualms or issues, it seems like easy money.


Honestly, the hitman, killer, security guard, what have you, part of the show is the weakest. People come and go, Freddy is barely memorable, and there isn’t much of a build to the kills. They just happen and both the person who took out the hit, and the now deceased, are just part of an endless parade of people barely worth investing in.

You Shouldn’t Have Messed With My Kid: Petra, Taylor, Samantha, Ray, Brit

1 of 2 Samantha (Elle Murray) Samantha (Elle Murray) threatening Taylor on Ray’s behalf. Petra (Maha Wilson) Petra (Maha Wilson), Taylor’s mom, interacting with Ray.

Ray, trying to keep things between parents, speaks to Petra, Taylor’s mother, and Petra immediately denies Taylor is bullying Brit. In fact, she feels Ray is harassing her, so she calls the cops. Leading to what should be an iconic moment which deserves to be a meme and what I need to make a .gif for.

But the “I Don’t Answer Questions” moment aside, being that Ray clearly didn’t break through to Petra, he gets Samantha, who choked him out in the last episode, to pay Taylor a visit. Leading to Brit likely not having to worry about Taylor again.

Wouldn’t it be cool to see Brit and Samantha become friends? Brit learning to fight, Samantha getting to stick around and add some color to the show. Heck, maybe even discovering what Ray does and being the bridge between his personal life and professional life? I mean, he did likely pay the kid to threaten someone. So it isn’t like he hasn’t already started to blur that boundary.

It’s All Fun & Games Until A Few Beers Open You Up: Ray, Gary, Tatiana, Ally

Tatiana, during a group date with her, Ray, Gary, and Ally, decides to bring up the urine porn and Ally just rolls with it. Which isn’t surprising since she joked about taking a dump on Ray’s chest in the last episode, so what’s pee?

But, jokes aside, Ray seems to appreciate Ally being able to roll with the punches and that’s probably why he opens up to her about the abuse he experienced as a child. Be it at school, where he was bullied until the 6th grade, or at home. In fact, he notes it was so bad he contemplated suicide and cut his hand to see if he could really do it.

Thus helping you understand why this bullying thing was a big deal to Ray to the point of getting Samantha involved. Brit is a bit delicate and while Ray moved past his suicidal thoughts, who is to say Brit would?

Generally speaking, most of Mr. Inbetween feels nonconsequential. Ray is told to kill someone and does it. Gary drags him into some weird situation and is forgiven, and he sometimes spends a day with his daughter. However, the conversation with Ally reminds you of the reason why you should stick around, watch each segment, and not just make the show into background noise. For every once in a while, it gets real, and Mr. Inbetween is always at its best when it isn’t trying to be funny, make Ray overly complex, or really push this duality, but just make him someone who has been through s***. The kind which alters a person and makes them capable of being a hitman. One whose humanity survives thanks to his brother, daughter, and now Ally.

Ho-ho who’s behind the mask!? Catch #TheMaskedSinger two nights in a row during the holiday semfinals! Tune in Tuesday, December 10 and Wednesday, December 11 at 8/7c on FOX!

A post shared by The Masked Singer (@maskedsingerfox) on Nov 12, 2019 at 12:03pm PST

Tuesday night’s show will be an hour-long episode that will not be themed. Wednesday will host the holiday extravaganza. Some contestants will sing holiday songs on Wednesday night’s episode only. Two celebrities will be unmasked during Wednesday’s episode, and one will go home on Tuesday. All six remaining contestants will sing, and with three being eliminated by the end of the week, the three remaining singers will compete in the finale.

The Masked Singer Season 2 finale will premiere on December 18, one week from Wednesday.

This week has two episodes because of some changes in the season’s schedule. The Masked Singer has aired on a slightly unpredictable schedule since the World Series bumped the reality show from the schedule for two weeks, but to make up for lost time the series aired two combined episodes the next week.

The Masked Singer has not aired a holiday-themed episode before, likely because of the timing of the first season. Season 1 of The Masked Singer aired in January 2019, and the finale was at the end of February.

Last week’s episode unmasked Butterfly, revealed to be Michelle Williams of Destiny’s Child. The week before, Flower was sent home. Fans who guessed Patti Labelle was under the floral mask were correct.

The remaining six singers are Flamingo, Thingamajig, Rottweiler, Tree, Fox and Leopard. There are some widely-accepted theories for the identities of some singers. Some include former Disney star Adrienne Bailon as Flamingo and NBA star Victor Oladipo as Thingamajig. However, both have denied involvement in the show.

One theory that has gained traction claims Tree may be Candace Cameron Bure. The Fuller House star is known for her role in several Hallmark Channel Christmas movies. Not only is the disguise for Tree a holiday tradition, but a clue from throughout the season mentioned Tree in reference to romantic films.

Others aren’t so agreed upon. Rottweiler’s identity is a constant conversation on Twitter, where many seem to think former American Idol contestant Chris Daughtry could be under the mask. Some don’t agree, though, and claim the voice does not match the rock singer.

This article has been updated with details on the holiday theme from Fox.

If you’re looking for a new episode of The Masked Singer this week, unfortunately it’s not on the TV schedule. The show is taking a one-week hiatus for the Thanksgiving holiday. But here’s what’s ahead!

Below, we’ll walk through the schedule for the rest of The Masked Singer season 2 and what to expect.

No New Episode This Week?

This week, there will be no new episode of The Masked Singer. It is taking a week off for the Thanksgiving holiday! The show will continue on Wednesday, December 4th, with the second group of four remaining after last week: Tree, Butterfly, Thingamajig, and Fox. Our recap show (available on our YouTube channel) will be taking a week off too.

What’s Next for The Masked Singer?

After next week’s episode, the final six come together for the Quarterfinals on Tuesday, December 10th. Then, on the next night, Wednesday, December 11th, TWO celebrities will be unmasked in the Semifinals, setting the stage for the Finale. Getting back-to-back episodes will make up for the pre-emptions due to the World Series and now the holiday.

At 8/7c, we’ll see an hour “Road to the Finals” flashback episode, then the Finale airs at 9/8c, where a winner will receive the Golden Mask.

If we had to put money on it, we have our own predictions on who will make it to the Finale.

Highest-Rated Unscripted Debut on Any Network in More than Seven Years,

With More than 17 Million Multi-Platform Viewers to Date

All-New Episode Airs Tonight!

FOX is renewing the new celebrity competition series THE MASKED SINGER, this season’s #1 new series and #1 unscripted show, which captivated a massive audience of more than 17 million multi-platform viewers for its debut episode. Based on an international hit, THE MASKED SINGER features celebrities facing off against one another with one major twist: each singer is shrouded from head to toe in an elaborate costume, complete with full face mask to conceal his or her identity. Ken Jeong, Jenny McCarthy, Nicole Scherzinger and Robin Thicke serve on the panel, playing detective alongside series host Nick Cannon.

“The response to THE MASKED SINGER has been fantastic and we are thrilled to bring it back for another season,” said Rob Wade, President, Alternative Entertainment and Specials, Fox Broadcasting Company. “I am so happy to see a singing Peacock burst into pop culture! THE MASKED SINGER is unique, bold, original and embraces the DNA of all the best FOX unscripted shows. We look forward to Season Two being even more fun, weird and wonderful than the first.”

The series premiere of THE MASKED SINGER marked television’s greatest Live + 7 Day gain from Live + Same Day among unscripted debuts ever in both Adults 18-49 (4.2/17 L7, +1.2 from L+SD) and Total Viewers (13.0 L7 million, +3.6 million vs. L+SD). It is the highest-rated unscripted debut on any network in more than seven years (excluding post-NFL telecasts), this season’s No. 1-t debut on any network and the No. 1 reality telecast of the last two seasons, topping “The Voice,” “American Idol” and “America’s Got Talent.”

THE MASKED SINGER’s premiere has delivered 17.6 million Multi-Platform viewers to date, FOX’s most-watched unscripted debut in 11 years, while its 3.6 million viewers across Hulu and FOX NOW mark the network’s most-streamed episode ever.

In tonight’s all-new episode, “Mix and Masks,” airing 9:00-10:00 PM ET/PT, on FOX, the competition shuffles as RABBIT, UNICORN, ALIEN and LION hit the stage to perform again with all-new clues. A special two-hour finale of THE MASKED SINGER airs Wednesday, Feb. 27 from 8:00-10:00 ET/PT on FOX.

Between all of the celebrity competitors on the show, they’ve amassed 65 Grammy nominations, 16 multi-Platinum albums, 16 Emmy nominations, nine Broadway shows, four stars on the Hollywood Walk of Fame and four Super Bowl titles. With each performance, the host, panelists, audience, viewers and even the other contestants are left guessing who is singing behind the mask. The singers may attempt to throw the crowd off of their scent, while keen observers might pick up on tiny hints buried throughout the show. One singer will be eliminated each week, ultimately revealing his or her true identity. It’s not a “whodunit,” it’s a “whosungit!”

Produced by Endemol Shine North America, THE MASKED SINGER was developed for the U.S. and is executive-produced by Craig Plestis (“Minute to Win It,” “The Winner Is”) of Smart Dog Media and Izzie Pick Ibarra (“Dancing with the Stars,” “Breaking Pointe”). Alex Rudzinski (“Dancing with the Stars,” “Grease: Live”) directs. Nick Cannon serves as co-executive producer. THE MASKED SINGER is based on the South Korean format created by Mun Hwa Broadcasting Corp. “Like” THE MASKED SINGER on Facebook at Follow the series on Twitter @maskedsingerfox and join the conversation using #TheMaskedSinger.
