CLICK THROUGH THE GALLERY ABOVE FOR ALL OF THE MASKED SINGER SEASON 2 REVEALS SO FAR!
The Masked Singer is back and the competition is fiercer than ever with 16 new stars in disguise vying for the top spot.
Each week, we're breaking down the contestants' performances and clues, their possible identities, and who has been unmasked so far. In the gallery above you'll find the first singers who have been revealed and below, keep tabs on the singers still in the competition.
There's a lot of evidence supporting the idea that this singer is a former member of a massive female pop group.
In the premiere week viewers saw four primary battles — Butterfly vs. Egg, Thingamajig vs. Skeleton, Rottweiler vs. Ladybug and Tree vs. Ice Cream — with four winners. The four remaining contestants were forced to duke it out by showing off their vocals in a second round.
Ultimately, the four competitors forced to battle — Egg, Skeleton, Ladybug, and Ice Cream — were whittled down to two, with the other two sent packing. In Week 2 viewers saw two rounds of competition as Leopard and Black Widow dueled before Panda and Flamingo. As the losers of their round, Panda and Leopard performed in a second round
A lot of evidence is pointing toward this iconic R&B songstress as being the one behind the mask.
In Week 3, Eagle and Flower and Fox and Penguin faced off with Flower and Fox moving on in the first round. This left Eagle and Penguin to go head to head until one of them had to remove their mask, revealing their identity.
In Week 4, Butterfly, Thingamajig, Skeleton, Black Widow, Flamingo and Leopard all performed for their lives in the game, but ultimately Skeleton fell victim to the vote and was sent home after unmasking their identity.
In Week 5, Rottweiler, Ladybug, Tree, Penguin, Flower, and Fox competed in hopes of continuing on. Ultimately, Penguin was unmasked and sent home. Then, Black Widow, Thingamajig, Butterfly, Leopard, and Flamingo competed and brought physical clues about their identities. In the end, Black Widow's identity was revealed and sent home.
In Week 6, Fox, Ladybug, Flower, Tree and Rottweiler were featured as they sang to stay in the competition. By the episode's end Ladybug was unmasked, as she didn't make it past this round of the show.
In Week 6, Flamingo and Leopard went face to face while Flower and Rottweiler did the same, but when it came time for the smackdown, Leopard and Flower had to duel. Ultimately, it was the Flower's mask which was raised before the end of the night.
In Week 7, Joel McHale joined the panelists to listen to four singers, Butterfly and Fox, and Thingamajig and Tree. The two groups went head to head, and when Butterfly and Thingamajig were left to compete after the first round, Butterfly was the contestant who ended up taking off their mask.
