Endnotes: The Masked Singer Debuts a Preview of a Wild Season 2 & More
What do a flamingo, a Victorian big cat, a skeleton, a steampunk fox and an eagle all have in common? They’re the new costumes coming up on The Masked Singer season two.
Fox’s celebrity singing competition returns in September for another season of wild and somewhat frightening and disturbing costumes that hide the identities of the competing stars.
Last year’s cast included the likes of Gladys Knight, Donny Osmond, Joey Fatone, Rumer Willis, Ricki Lake, Margaret Cho, Tori Spelling and winner T-Pain. The cast of season two is being kept under wraps because, well, duh. That’s the whole point of the show. The judging panel, which includes Robin Thicke, Jenny McCarthy, Ken Jeong, and Nicole Scherzinger, have to guess who the masked singer is.
Nick Cannon returns as host.
The costumes for season two also feature a sparkly egg? As the promo below says, it’s going to be more insane than ever. And there will be some changes.

Matt Lauer and wife Annette Roque are officially calling it quits after filing divorce papers in a New York court on Tuesday.
Roque filed for divorce from her estranged husband on July 9 after 21 years of marriage, according to Suffolk County Court documents. The two have three children: sons Jack, 18, and Thijs, 12, and daughter Romy, 15.
Lauer and Roque split back in 2017, following bombshell allegations levied against the veteran NBC “Today” show newscaster. NBC fired Lauer in November 2017 for inappropriate sexual behavior at work.
After his ouster, writer and producer Nancy Alspaugh, who was married to Lauer from 1981 to 1988, told Entertainment Tonight that she was shocked by his firing.
“He’s been the best person that’s ever held that job and I couldn’t imagine that anything that he would have done — that would have been so out of character for him — that would have caused that reaction,” she said.
