Here’s how it’s going to work: Multiple costumed contestants will compete each week, but only one will advance to the next round of competition. The studio audience will vote during the episode, and the singer with the lowest number of votes will be unmasked mid-show.

The two singers with the most votes will then face off in a “Battle Royale” performance of the same song, with the winner being crowned King or Queen of The Masked Singer. This person will move on and participate in the next episode, while the other will be unmasked.

The new season will also feature special appearances from unmasked celebrities including Donny Osmond, Andrew Lloyd Webber, The Muppets, Will Arnett, Leslie Jordan, Joel McHale, Tori Spelling, Jon Lovitz, Jodie Sweetin, Carrot Top, Blue Man Group, Lance Bass, Danielle Fishel, Sheila E., and Drew Carey.

As for the theme nights we mentioned earlier, fans can look forward to “Vegas Night”, “Comedy Roast”, “Hall Of Fame”, “Muppets Night”, “Andrew Lloyd Webber Night”, ” TV Themes”, “’90s Night”, “Thanksgiving” and “Fright Night”.
