The Masked Singer is a reality singing competition that airs on Fox in the United States. The show is currently in its sixth season and has grown in popularity since its inception in 2019. Each season, a dozen celebrities take to the stage to perform in full-body disguises while the panelists attempt to determine their identities using only clues. The least-popular contestant of the night is then eliminated, and their identity is revealed.
With singers Robin Thicke and Nicole Scherzinger, actress Jenny McCarthy, and comedian Ken Jeong acting as judges, the competition will wrap up its sixth season on December 15, 2021. So if you’re interested in catching up on The Masked Singer but don’t think you’ll have the time to watch all five previous seasons of episodes, here’s a quick recap of the winners.
