The Masked Singer likes to mix things up to keep the show fresh and fun.
The biggest change this year was that there are wildcards being added, with two still to arrive, and only two groups of competitors.
There is also a new Take It Off Buzzer – if a panelist figures out who the singer is without question, they can use it and if they are right, the celeb has to unmask and leave the competition immediately.
However, there is another change coming this year that should provide some fun for the series.
There will be celebrities showing up later this season to sing duets with the masked singers.
Masked Singer adding celebrity duets this year
The duets will take place toward the end when the finalists will get a chance to sing with some famous singers.
The Masked Singer revealed who these anticipated duets will be with.
In Group A, Jesse McCartney will return to perform with one of the groups’ finalists. Jesse was part of the Season 3 competition where he came in second place.
Also in Group A, Michael Bolton will return and the Grammy-winning singer will perform with the other finalist from that group.
There was also a clue dropped here where the masked celebrity he sings with said that they have sung together before, but Bolton doesn’t know it.
In Group B, the guest singers will be very familiar to The Masked Singer fans.
Panelists Nicole Scherzinger and Robin Thicke will perform with the finalists from the group.
Right now, Group A consists of Bull, Skunk, and the wildcards Hamster and Pepper. Group B consists of Banana Split, Mallard, Queen of Hearts, and wildcard Caterpillar.
There are also two more wildcards coming in Beach Ball and Jester.
