Wednesdays 8:00 pm - 9:00 pm ET

There is nothing quite like TV’s #1 entertainment show, THE MASKED SINGER. The Emmy Award-nominated singing competition features host Nick Cannon, alongside clue-driven panelists Jenny McCarthy, Nicole Scherzinger, Ken Jeong and Robin Thicke 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.

Season eight will introduce an all-new format when the show returns for its epic eighth season on Sept. 21. Each episode will feature several jaw-dropping performances by intricately disguised celebrities, but for the first time ever, only one contestant will move on from each episode.

The studio audience will vote for their favorite, and the singer with the least number of votes will unmask mid-show! That celebrity will get a front row seat in the Masked Singer VIP section to watch the rest of the competition and the second unmasking. For the first time ever, they won’t have to wait to find out what celebrity they were competing against!

Next, the Top Two singers face off in a Battle Royale performance of the same song. The winner will be crowned the  King or Queen of THE MASKED SINGER and move on to the next week’s episode  against  new  competition,  and  the  other  will  unmask!  The three finalists left standing after each round will compete in the Semi-Finals.

This season will feature 22 celebrity contestants – more than any other season! Stars include: the new season also welcomes celebrity guest appearances (unmasked!) by stars such as Donny Osmond, Andrew Lloyd Webber, The Muppets, Will Arnett, Leslie Jordan, Joel McHale, Tori Spelling, Jon Lovitz, Jodie Sweetin, Carrot Top, Blue Man Group, Lance Bass, Danielle Fishel, Sheila E. and Drew Carey!

Last season THE MASKED SINGER averaged a 1.2 Live + 7 Day rating among Adults 18-49 and 7.7 million multiplatform viewers, marking FOX’s largest unscripted cross-platform audience.

The show is produced by FOX Alternative Entertainment. James Breen, Craig Plestis, and Nick Cannon serve as executive producers. James Breen serves as showrunner. The series is based on the South Korean format created by Mun Hwa Broadcasting Corp.
