They’re back with their outrageous costumes and of course their MASKS! The Masked Singer is back on Fox for Season 2 with the same panelists; Jenny McCarthy, Robin Thicke, Ken Jeong, Nicole Scherzinger, and host Nick Cannon.
The premise of this show has celebrities facing off against one another but they are concealing his or her identity in an elaborate costume. The season started with 16 singers but in the first two weeks they have already unmasked and eliminated three contestants. (Which, we guessed 2 correctly in our house!) The Egg was revealed to be Johnny Weir, the Ice Cream was Tyler “Ninja” Blevins, and the Panda Bear was former professional boxer and fitness and wellness expert Laila Ali. Laila talked with Nick Cannon about this being the first thing she’s lost as she sits undefeated in her sport.
This week we will continue to meet new contestants. From this point on one person will be revealed each week. If they lose the singing competition they will be sent home after their identity is uncovered.
I really think kudos and props need to be given to the costume designer on this show, Marina Toybina. She is a four-time Emmy winner who has designed costumes for music videos, concert tours, television series and the fashion world.
I will be tuning in again to see the performances and to see if I can guess who is behind the Mask.
