They wear sweatshirts that say, “Don’t talk to me.”
But it takes more than just those four words to protect the identity of the celebrity contestants on The Masked Singer, Fox’s unique singing competition that’s already been ordered for a second season. In this exclusive clip from the Feb. 27 two-hour finale, viewers can see what lengths the production goes to to make sure no one can figure out who is under those crazy masks.
“I feel like I’m going on a CIA mission or something,” says one of the contestants, whose voice is disguised as well.
“It’s like a non-stop murder mystery masquerade party, but with more singing, and less murder,” adds host Nick Cannon. He, along with panelists Robin Thicke, Jenny McCarthy Wahlberg, Ken Jeong, and Nicole Scherzinger, and most of the crew have no idea who’s wearing the costumes.
The semi-final episode of The Masked Singer airs Feb. 19, when two celebrities will be eliminated. The final three mysterious crooners will participate in the two-hour finale airing Wednesday, Feb 27, from 8-10 p.m. ET on Fox.
