Show Description

The Masked Singer is celebrating its milestone tenth season on Wednesday, Sept. 27 (8:00-9:00 PM ET/PT). The legacy continues with an all-new format with three incredible groups and special Battle Royale semi-final episodes. With sixteen total celebrity singers, season ten boasts amazingly intricate new costumes, including “Donut,” “Anteater,” “Hawk,” “Hibiscus” and a life-size “S’More!”

 

The anniversary season will introduce all-new themed episodes, including “Trolls Night,” ahead of the much-anticipated November release of DreamWorks Animation’s Trolls Band Together, a special “Harry Potter Night” episode airing the week of Halloween, and an iconic episode celebrating the music of Elton John, featuring song selections from the legendary superstar.  Other themes include: “NFL Night,” “One Hit Wonders,” “Disco,” “2000s Night,” “I Wanna Rock” and “Soundtrack of My Life.” The themes will be weaved throughout the performers’ song selections, costumes, celebrity guests, set design…and may even provide clues as to WHO is under the mask!

 

Hosted by Nick Cannon, alongside panelists Jenny McCarthy Wahlberg, Nicole Scherzinger, Ken Jeong and Robin Thicke, the Emmy Award-nominated singing competition show invites fan favorite celebrities from previous seasons to return to The Masked Singer stage to help celebrate the milestone with special performances all season long. Former contestants will also lend their hit songs to the Battle Royale competition. Like previous seasons, Wild Card contestants will return to shake up the competition with one Wild Card introduced to each group. Additionally, the “Ding Dong Keep It On Bell” is back in the Battle Royale semi-final episodes, and the judges can choose to save one contestant from elimination and move them directly to the finale. 

 

The Masked Singer 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. Celebrities who have performed on the show include T-Pain, LeAnn Rimes, Nick Lachey, Gladys Knight, Donny Osmond, Seal, Patti LaBelle, Drew Carey, Lil Wayne, Mickey Rourke, Rob Gronkowski, Lonzo Ball, Wayne Brady, Wendy Williams, Tori Spelling, Dionne Warwick, Kermit The Frog, Caitlyn Jenner, Wiz Khalifa, Jewel and many, many more!

With each performance, the host, panelists, audience, viewers and even the other contestants are left guessing who is singing behind the mask. Ranging from Grammy Award winners to legendary athletes, and everything in between, the singers may attempt to throw the crowd off their scent, while keen observers might pick up on tiny clues buried throughout the show. One singer will be eliminated each week, ultimately revealing his or her true identity. The Season Ten contestants boast a combined 40 Medals, 33 Grammy Nominations, 7 Hall of Fame Awards, 3 Lifetime Achievement Awards and over 50 tattoos.

The Masked Singer Season 10 premiere delivered a 0.9 Live + Same Day rating among Adults 18-49 and 4.0 million viewers, its highest-rated and most-watched season premiere since Season Seven. It also marks the #1 unscripted season premiere of 2023 among Adults 18-49 (excluding post-Super Bowl).
