    Host: Nick Cannon

    Judges:
    Robin Thicke
    Jenny McCarthy
    Kim Jeong
    Nicole Scherzinger
    The series premiered on Fox on January 2, 2019.
    The show is hosted by Nick Cannon and features celebrities singing in a head-to-toe costume and face mask which conceals their identities from other contestants, the panelists, and the audience.

    A total of 12 celebrities will appear and compete on the show over ten episodes. The audience and judges vote on which singer is the best, and the singer with the lowest votes is eliminated and reveals their identity. Small hints revealing their identity are given to viewers during the show.

    Anyone watching this? predictions

    The first matchup: Peacock vs Hippo
    Unicorn vs Monster
    Deer vs Lion

    Peacock is really good. I was thinking someone like Criss Angel or David Blaine based on the hints.
    Hippo is definitely an athlete. I got spoiled on this one by mistake, but now that I know it, all the clues make sense, all the way down to the gold tooth the Hippo has
    i think the Monster is one of the members of Boyz II Men. I'm probably wrong, but that was the first thing that popped in my head.
    i though the Unicorn might be Tori Spelling lol

    Deer vs Lion is about to start, so i will return with my guesses for those

    edit: I think the Deer is an NFL player or Wrestler. i'm thinking JJ Watt or John Cena. i dont know many wrestlers names these days. the cowboy clue kinda makes me think Jason Witten too
    The Lion is either part of a girl group, or a famous family, possibly with a few sisters. the judges got me thinking model too, but i'm leaning toward actress.

    Me and my family watched the first episode... as for guesses?

    The only one we're pretty sure about is Peacock. Given the clues, the voice...
    (will put in spoiler tags just in case)
    Donny Osmond.

    Clues:
    • Height: 5'9 (Donny is 5'9)
    • Walked onto the stage for the 1st time at the age of 5 (Donny debuted on The Andy Williams Show in 1963, at the age of 5)
    • Putting on a show in his DNA (Donny comes from a performing family)
    • Been a while since your mom had a poster of him hanging on her wall (so an older/'former' heart-throb)
    • Friend of Michael Jackson - who gave advice on reinventing self (Donny was a contemperary of and friends with Michael, and - when Donny hit his 20's and began struggling - Michael suggested he try changing his name)
    • The clue package showed Peacock holding a dog/puppy figurine (reference to Donny's song "Puppy Love")
    • Then after the performance one of the judges asked if he was a magician/mauled by a tiger at some point. His response was that while he hasn't been mauled by a tiger, he has been part of a magic act (the Donny & Marie Show would do a "Great Osmondo" segment)

    gah i totally forgot about that! you're probably right on!

    and @LibidoLoca Thicke is Thicke, eh, but he doesn't lay it on too thicke on the show yet. he's probably one of the least annoying judges out the gate and he made some really smart guesses

    episode 2 guesses:
    Poodle -(jillian michaels was my guess before she sang, i know that voice though! so now i think it's an actress from a tv comedy, i also think they may be asian)
    Pineapple - revealed
    Alien - Paris Hilton
    Rabbit - a Member of NKotB or 98 degrees
    Raven - Ricki Lake (talk show host, tragedy; her husband committed suicide)
    Bee - Tina Turner (work = the hardest working woman in showbiz)

    See, for Rabbit we’re leaning towards
    someone from *NSYNC. During the clue package he waved ‘bye bye bye’ at one point, there was the comment near the end about ‘its gonna be me’.

    Definitely not Justin or Joey (as noted, not the build for Joey). Pretty sure not Lance. Thinking JC

    Okay, i’m revising my Rabbit guess.

    still *NSYNC, but despite what I said before I now say Joey (the rabbit head might be throwing off proportions and the costume holding in some of the chunk)

    im calling my guess as the Poodle being correct. i said it was an asian comedian, and it was! i just couldn't remember her name. it was funny Ken didn't recognize her when she played his sister on his show lol

    there is no doubt in my mind that Ricki Lake is the Raven. i would put money on it. especially with the newer hints, the 1968 (her birth year/hairspray references)

    i think the Rabbit is Joey Fatone or Donnie Wahlberg

    as much as i thought the Bee might be Tina, i'm leaning way more towards Gladys now, with the Georgia peaches in the montage, and when she said Take Me To Court, or something like that. Gladys is suing to have her name taken off the restaurant chain of her sons. i also kinda thought that could fit tina turner too because she had to go to court to keep her stage name

    oh, and the unicorn, i am still kinda stuck between Tori Spelling and Paris Hilton. but Paris could be a quadruple threat (film, tv, music, porn?) , tori could be (film, tv, books, and ?)

    I think Twitter has ruined the show by guessing everyone and being right. I should just avoid reading anything I know...

    ive really tried to avoid social media spoilers. Latoya was ruined for me, and i missed the ep where the Lion was revealed and that was spoiled for me, but that was a pleasant surprise because i never ever would've guessed her

    For those that want to watch it but don't want to be spoiled:

    Peacock is Donny Osmond
    Bee is Gladys Knight
    The Monster, who won is T-Pain. It became obvious when he dropped the clue that he was vilified for his singing voice, which he said sounded like a dial tone. Host Nick Cannon knew it was T-Pain, none of the judges knew at all

    I was right about Bee and Peacock. Wasn't close to being right about Monster but it makes sense now.

    Bee and Peacock were by far my favorites and so it's cool they made it to the finale
