The 2021 People’s Choice Awards just released their nominees for television and movies for this year’s awards, and The Masked Singer received a few nominations.
The Masked Singer was one of the nominees this year for Best Competition Show of 2021.
Here is what you need to know about this year’s People’s Choice Awards and The Masked Singer’s nomination.
The Masked Singer’s People’s Choice nomination
The Masked Singer is in the middle of its seventh season right now, but the main nomination came for its sixth season, although both are taken into account.
That sixth season aired earlier in 2021, with Nick Lachey winning as Piglet with his finals’ rendition of Journey’s Faithfully. However, the second and third place contestants brought the most recognition to the show.
JoJo, who performed as Black Swan and came in second, and rap star Wiz Khalifa, who wore the Chameleon costume and came in third, both picked up individual nominations.
Other notable performers in Season 6 included the band Hanson, actor Tyrese Gibson, singer Bobby Brown, and actor Danny Trejo. This season also included Kermit the Frog as a contestant.
The seventh season, which is currently airing, has already seen the elimination of celebrities such as NBA star Dwight Howard, singer Toni Braxton, and icon Ruth Pointer of the Pointer Sisters.
The Masked Singer has been nominated for a People’s Choice Award for Best Competition Show three times, but it has never won. It was nominated in 2019, 2020, and now in 2021.
