The exciting singing competition is back for season 2, and fans are more than ready to start studying the clues that reveals who these masked singers are. All the original judges are set to return, with “Blurred Lines” singer Robin Thicke, Jenny McCarthy, comedian Ken Jeong, and Nicole Scherzinger. The judges will have the difficult task once again of trying to decode the tiny hints that each star provides.
Last season, celebrities wore elaborate customs, like Tori Spelling as the Unicorn and Donny Osmond as the pretentious peacock. Fans are eager to know what season 2 will bring in regard to the fancy, masked costumes. In a sneak peek from USA Today, fans can see that costumes have become even grander. Browsing through, there seem to be a black widow spider, which is made of all black, sparkle material, and an eagle, which looks like a mix between a 1970s hippie and a bald eagle. There is also a costume that is themed after an egg, which looks like he is about to do a Mexican hat dance, while the flower is absolutely stunning, coming into full bloom, starting with green ivy at the feet working its way into a purple blossom. Season 2’s costume designers of The Masked Singer have outdone themselves with the way they had stepped up their creative juices.
The celebrity Masked Singers are under lock and key not to reveal their identity, even having their own personal security to protect them from spies. The protocol to keep the celebrities unidentified was intense last season, and fans can only assume it has been stepped up. Executive producer Craig Plestis was mum on how the show will keep the weekly reveal a secret, but joked that he had already spoken to the Pentagon for some potential advice. The Masked Singer audience had to sign a non-disclosure agreement since season 1 was aired much later after it had been recorded, and it would be safe to assume the audience for season 2 will have to do the same.
Season 2 of the Masked Singer will no doubt surprise and entertain fans, while also raising the bar, given how popular season 1 ended up becoming. However, given how much detail and attention is put into the costumes, it almost doesn't seem fair to unmask the performers at all and deny audiences the chance to see them on stage week after week without the risk of elimination.
The Masked Singer airs Wednesdays at 8 PM EST on Fox.
