The Masked Singer is a reality TV show filmed in Beverly Hills, California. The show starts at 8 p.m. and airs Wednesdays on Fox.

The show is about singers who hide their identity from others using, you guessed it, big masks. The judging panel is Jenny McCarthy, Ken Jeong, Nicole Scherzinger, Nick Cannon and Robin Thicke. They must guess who’s behind the mask, along with the audience. It started as a South Korean show, which was copied in the United States because it was so popular. 

The guest singers are always surprising. It’s harder than you think to tell who they are from their voices. On season two episode 13, Adrienne Bailon got unmasked and people were really surprised. They didn’t expect to see her on that show, she’s known for movies and other reality shows such as The Real Cheetah Girls

They also have a chant to make it more fun when the singers take off their mask. They say, “Take it off! Take it off!” I like this show because I like to see the singers get unmasked. Sometimes I just skip to that part, because I’m eager to see who it is. Do you think you could guess the masked singer? Tune in next time to find out.
