The masked singer last night

Can’t get enough of The Masked Singer? Good, because it’s on twice this week. The finale was already planned for Dec. 18 (it can’t be the following Wednesday, since that’s Christmas), and some unforeseen delays earlier this season messed up the scheduling. So FOX is making do by doubling up on back-to-back nights. The Masked Singer will air Tuesday, Dec. 10 at 8 p.m. ET and then again on Wednesday, Dec. 11 in its usual time slot of 8 p.m. ET.

The back-to-back week became necessary after the World Series of Baseball delayed the show for two consecutive weeks in late October and early November. At that point, the series was two weeks off schedule. FOX remedied this a bit by airing a two-hour episode the week after the World Series, making The Masked Singer only one week behind schedule. This week’s surprise Tuesday episode gets the series back on track to end on Dec. 18 with the top three singers vying for their chance to win.

On Tuesday, the six remaining contestants will sing and one celebrity will be unmasked. Then, Wednesday night’s show will be a holiday special, with the stars likely performing Christmas hits. Five will sing and two will be revealed at the end of the episode, setting the stage for the following week’s final three performances.

However, because the show doesn’t usually air on Tuesday, there’s a high chance that some fans may miss out on seeing it by the time they tune in for the usual Wednesday episode. If that happens to you, don’t worry. As the show does every week, the Wednesday episode will recap Tuesday’s elimination to get you up to speed. And, on Saturday, Dec. 14, both Tuesday’s and Wednesday’s episodes will air as reruns on FOX beginning at 8 p.m. ET. A clip show is also airing for on hour on Dec. 18 at 8 p.m. ET, which will likely recap the Tuesday episode’s highlights as well.

When the show returns on Dec. 10 for the special Tuesday episode, the six final singers will all perform. As a refresher, left standing is the Flamingo (whom people think is Adrienne Bailon Houghton); the Fox (possibly Wayne Brady); the Leopard (who could be either RuPaul or Seal); the Rottweiler (a popular guess is Chris Daughtry); the Thingamajig (most likely Victor Oladipo); and the super mysterious Tree (who might be anyone from Ana Gasteyer to Rachael Ray to Brenda Lee to Beverly D’Angelo, or someone else completely). One of these six will be sent home at the end of Tuesday’s episode, so here’s hoping it’s not the Tree. If the Christmas-themed masked singer doesn’t get to perform during the “Merry Maskmus” episode on Wednesday, then what was even the point?

With two episodes to watch, this week is a big week for us Masked Singer fans, but not as big as the following week will be. On Dec. 18, all of the remaining masks will be taken off and one winner will be crowned. Time will tell if your fave makes it to the end.

This weekly feature is in addition to TVLine’s daily What to Watch listings.

What’s on your TVLine-Up for the week ahead?

If you like TVLine, you’ll LOVE our weekly newsletter.

As The Masked Singer wraps up its second season during tonight’s finale, fans are eager to find out who is behind what mask! It’s now down to Flamingo, Rottweiler and Fox who have the judges and fans more confused than ever, despite the few guesses that have been thrown around. The popular singing competition can be viewed on the FOX network at 8 p.m. ET via cable subscription or you can plug in your information into the FOX NOW app.

If you don’t have cable, the popular show can also be viewed on streaming services like YouTube TV, Hulu + Live, Sling TV. If you don’t have Hulu + Live, you can still view it on Hulu the next day. If you have fuboTV, it can be viewed their as well. If you don’t have a subscription to a streaming service that allows live television to be viewed, you can try them out for free at first, but it varies how long that trial lasts from one service to the next.

Last episode, Thingamajig and Leopard went home revealing Indiana Pacers, Victor Oladipo as Thingamajig and Seal as Leopard. Fans were stunned when Thingamajig went home after his show-stopping performances. As for tonight, Nicole Scherzinger, who’s been a judge both seasons, gets super emotional after hearing Fox’s confession about not being happy, although he’s been blessed to make a lot of other people happy.

“This is all I’ve done my whole life. And I’ve been able to be blessed enough to make a lot of people happy,” the Fox started to explain. “But I haven’t always been happy myself. It’s taken me all this time to find my joy again, wearing a mask, and having no preconceived notions from anyone about what I can do.”

He ended with a heartfelt message by saying, “I just want to thank the show for making me one happy Fox.”

Scherzinger stood up and started shouting, “We love you! We love you!”

As for guesses, there’s a lot of talk of the Fox either being Wayne Brady or Jamie Foxx. The judges feel Flamingo might be former Cheetah Girls star Adrienne Bailon and that Rottweiler might be Chris Daughtry.


So far, celebrities like Kelly Osbourne, Raven-Symoné , Patti LaBelle, Dr. Drew, Johnny Weir, Tyler “Ninja” Blevins, Laila Ali, Paul Shaffer, Sherri Shepherd, Michelle Williams and Ana Gasteyer have all been unmasked. Their secrecy was taken to a new level this season after last season ended up being a little too easy for some fans to figure out. This time around, clues were even harder to guess for the crowd, judges and viewers.

The Masked Singer airs tonight on Fox at 8 p.m. ET.

As great as last week’s holiday was, it was missing something vitally important: a new episode of The Masked Singer. If you’re wondering when your favorite reality show will return, we have your back.

The Masked Singer is basically what would happen if you fused a roomful of celebrities with karaoke, Survivor, and Clue. Each episode a group of completely masked celebrities sing against one another in a singing competition. Other than some strategic hints and their singing voices, the judges and fans have no idea who each of these famous contestants are. At least not until they take off their mask to show their true identity. It’s all mad fun. And here’s when you can watch more of it.

Is The Masked Singer on Tonight?

There’s no mystery about this one. The Masked Singer is returning to Fox this Wednesday, December 4.

Is The Masked Singer a Repeat Tonight? Is The Masked Singer New Tonight?

Thankfully we’re not getting a rerun this week. The Masked Singer will return with Season 2, Episode 9 “Clash of the Masks” tonight at 8/7c p.m. You know what that means. This week marks the unveiling of another singing celebrity.

What Channel Is The Masked Singer on?

That would be Fox. Want to watch this week’s episode live? Fortunately that’s a pretty easy thing to accomplish. If you have cable, you’re already set. Just turn your TV to Fox on or before 8/7c p.m. Even if you’re away from your TV there are still options. Thanks to Fox NOW you can watch Fox shows live from a mobile device as long as you have a cable authentication username and password.

But what if you’re a cord cutter? You’re still set. Most major skinny bundle TV options like Sling TV, YouTube TV, and Hulu + Live TV offer access to Fox. And if none of those are your speed, there’s always Hulu. New episodes of The Masked Singer come to Hulu Thursday mornings.

On The Masked Singer Season 2, Who Has Been Unmasked So Far?

We started this season with 16 contestants, and now we’re down to seven. Here’s who’s been unmasked so far:

  • Episode 1: Figure skater Johnny Weir (The Egg) and professional gamer Ninja (The Ice Cream)
  • Episode 2: Boxer Laila Ali (The Panda)
  • Episode 3: Celebrity doctor Dr. Drew Pinsky (The Eagle)
  • Episode 4: Bandleader Paul Schaffer (The Skeleton)
  • Episode 5: Comedian and actor Sherri Shepard (The Penguin)
  • Episode 6: Actor Raven-Symoné (The Black Widow)
  • Episode 7: TV personality Kelly Osbourne (The Ladybug)
  • Episode 8: Singer Patti LaBelle (The Flower)

How Many Contestants Are Left on The Masked Singer?

We’re down to the final seven. We know a lot of things about this crazy show but we still don’t know the identities of The Tree, Thingamajig, The Rottweiler, The Leopard, The Fox, The Flamingo, or The Butterfly. But all of that is about to change with this upcoming batch of episodes.

Where to stream The Masked Singer

Fans of The Masked Singer are used to watching the show just one night a week. This week, however, the show will air twice. Tonight, Tuesday, it will air at 8pm ET/PT on Fox. Tomorrow, it will air again at 8pm ET/PT on Fox.

Tonight’s episode will involve the six remaining contestants competing together for the first time. Tomorrow night, Fox will air a second episode of the show, where two masked celebrity singers will be “unwrapped” in a holiday-themed episode.

The Finale Will Air December 18

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!

The finale of The Masked Singer will air on December 18. The top three finalists will compete for the grand prize, and all three singers will be unmasked. This week is titled a “Special Two-Night Holiday Event”, and allows fans to celebrate Christmas early with their favorite masked celebrities.

The slightly unpredictable schedule of the show is owed to the World Series, which kept The Masked Singer off our televisions for two weeks. Fortunately, producers are looking to make up for lost time by airing two episodes this week.

The Butterfly Was Unmasked Last Week

Last week, the Butterfly was unmasked and revealed to be Michelle Williams of Destiny Child fame. Prior to that, the Flower was sent home.

The remaining contestants this season are the Flamingo, Thingamajig, Rottweiler, Tree, Fox, and Leopard. Who will win?

According to the popular betting site Gold Derby, the Rottweiler, Tree, and Flamingo are the ones to beat. The outlet writes of the Fottweiler, “This puppy seems to be winning everyone over including me even though I’m firmly on Team Cat. He’s got a great voice, brings a great energy to the stage and always has a fun setup for his performances.”

They also rate the Tree as a top contender this season. Distractify, meanwhile, points to the Rottweiler as making the top three. The outlet also says that the Flamingo could be a top contender to win the whole competition.

And just who is the Flamingo? Our guess is that it’s none other than Adrienne Bailon Houghton, who co-hosts The Real talk show. Although she has publicly denied being the Flamingo, the voice is an irrefutable match. Speaking on her talk show, Adrienne told her fellow Real co-hosts, “I’m at work at four o’clock in the morning… Every time I’m trending, I’m always concerned, like what is happening here. It’s odd.” She later said she doesn’t even watch The Masked Singer. Still, fans are convinced the fluffy pink bird is Houghton (many have referenced her Cheetah Girls songs as proof that the vocal performance is a match.)

The Masked Singer is a reality singing competition that premiered on Fox on January 2, 2019. Hosted by Nick Cannon, the show features a panel of judges that includes Nicole Scherzinger, Ken Jeong, Jenny McCarthy, and Robin Thicke. The show was renewed for a second season in January, and in May, it was announced that the series would be ordered for yet another season.

Who will be unmasked tonight? Who will win the competition?

Be sure to tune into The Masked Singer tonight at 8pm ET/PT to find out.

When is The Masked Singer on TV? Judges, host and celebrity theories

It’s fair to say, TV has had its fair share of bonkers entertainment shows.


Low points have included Naked Elvis, which saw some poor bloke flash his shrivelled penis on TV for the entertainment of drunk/bored teenagers, and Hole in the Wall, consisting of celebrities you once respect squeeze into silver spandex and contorting their bodies into bizarre positions to avoid being knocked into water.

But be prepared to see your eyebrows raise into your hairline with The Masked Singer, which is one-part Stars in Their Eyes and three-parts Black Mirror – and huge in the States.

Twelve celebrities will mask up in… interesting disguises (think more Monsters Inc. than Phantom of the Opera) and belt out tunes in a bid to impress our judges and the audience, who have no idea who will be performing.

Here’s everything you need to know about the upcoming show…

When is The Masked Singer on TV?

It’s one of the most highly anticipated shows of 2020, and now, we finally have a launch date.

The Masked Singer launched with a double-bill weekend, with six of our 12 singers performing on Saturday 4th January and the remaining six performing Sunday 5th January at 8pm on ITV. The shows will be before The Voice on Saturday and after Dancing on Ice on Sunday .

Who are the judges on The Masked Singer?

With the show being so successful in the States, The Masked Singer is bringing out the big guns to attract a UK audience with an impressive panel.

Unlike singing shows such as the X Factor, the judges don’t actually rate our performers in terms of singing talent but overall performance ability – and be able to take a reasonable stab at who could be behind the mask.

Jonathan Ross, Davina McCall, Ken Jeong and Rita Ora will all be the detectives in charge of finding out which celebrity is in which costume.

Joel Dommett will act as the show’s host.

“I’m incredibly excited and proud to be hosting The Masked Singer for ITV,” he said. “I’ve been a huge fan of the show in the US and being a part of it here is a dream come true! The panel is brilliant and it’s an incredible idea – I think the UK is going to love it. In all seriousness this is my best chance to become friends with Jonathan Ross and I’m not going to mess it up.”

So what exactly is the Masked Singer about?

It really is as weird as it looks.

Based on a South Korean format, King of Mask Singer, The Masked Singer will see 12 famous faces taking to the stage to sing – only, we won’t know who is singing. So far, so The Voice.

What makes the show so unique, shall we say, is guises our celebs take to mask their identity. This really is the only show on television where Donny Osmond, disguised as a peacock, could take on T-Pain dressed as a monster (which in itself looks like an illegitimate Monsters Inc. love child).

Is there a trailer?

Yes, we have our first look at the UK version:

Which celebrities are taking part?

As of yet, only one celebrity has been unveiled. We found out on the first episode that “Butterfly” was none other than EastEnder Patsy Palmer – check back here for more updates.

The global popularity of The Masked Singer has attracted genuine A-listers taking part – Donny Osmond, Gladys Knight and T-Pain all starred in the American version, while Ryan Reynolds made an appearance in the Korean edition – so expect big names dressed up as Unicorn, Fox, Monster, Chameleon, Daisy, Octopus, Duck and Queen Bee.

What are the costumes in The Masked Singer?

Yes, there really are celebrities hiding inside those massive and elaborate costumes.

The 12 contenders are as follows:

Butterfly – Patsy Palmer









Queen Bee

The Masked Singer: Who is Duck? All the theories about the contestant.

The Masked Singer is hands-down one of the craziest and best TV shows of the last few years, and the mystery celebrities are back for a fourth week.

The format of the show is simple – the celebs perform week-on-week to judges Davina McCall, Ken Jeong, Jonathan Ross and Rita Ora, who vote two off each week alongside the live studio audience.

But there’s a catch – the viewers, judges and audience have no idea who the celeb is until they’re voted off, as they perform wearing an elaborate costume and mask.

One of the mystery celebs is Duck. Here is everything we know about their potential identity.

— Rick Edwards (@rickedwards1) January 4, 2020

The Duck has also revealed that she speaks several different languages – including German and Italian.

She added that she once had 850,000 people sing happy birthday to her, and that she also sung it herself to someone significant.

Which celebrities have been revealed on The Masked Singer?

On the first weekend, the first two celebrities were unmasked after being voted off the show.

On Saturday, it was Patsy Palmer, who was revealed as Butterfly after singing a rendition of You Got The Love by Florence And The Machine.

“My mother-in-law asked me whether I was in the audience.”

And The Darkness singer Justin Hawkins became the latest celeb to be unmasked as the chameleon in week two.

The next week, The Tree was revealed to be Teddy Sheringham.
