Clues about the identities of masked singers
Fox has dropped subtle clues as to who each of this season’s contestants is, while also boasting about the caliber of the celebrities hidden under the masks.
There is bound to be a lot of musical talent showing in the singing competition as the contestants have a total of 85 Grammy nominations between them, with 27 wins.
In the actor category, there are a lot of good (and bad) to watch out for with three Oscar nominations, 12 Emmy nominations but also 12 Razzie nominations.
Many athletes masked themselves for The masked singer in the past and Season 6 is no different with two Super Bowl appearances among 16 contenders.
There is also a lot of wisdom and experience lurking under the colorful facades, as Fox said there are two Lifetime Achievement Awards among the group as well.
The twist on ‘The Masked Singer’
This season will feature the “Take It Off Buzzer” which can shorten someone’s time on the show.
If at any point one of the panelists thinks they are sure who is behind the mask, they can hit the “Take It Off Buzzer” and if they are right, the celebrity shows up and leaves the competition. The good panelist will also get two points for his Golden Ear Trophy score.
However, if he guesses wrong, the panelist will get two points deducted from his Golden Ear Trophy score. The buzzer can only be used once in group A and once in group B.
The guest panelists for Season 6 have been revealed by Variety. Leslie Jordan, Joel McHale, will.i.am and Cheryl Hines will be stopping to help panelists guess throughout the season.
