'The Masked Singer' is back with its biggest season after Superbowl LIV, and fans have thoroughly enjoyed the premiere.

Season 3 of 'The Masked Singer' kicked off on Sunday night with the best time and six masked celebrities took to stage performing in the whackiest costumes. This season, they even have a new format with the 18 contestants divided into three groups consisting of six masked celebrities each. 

Once each group is whittled down to its best three contestants, they will together form the final super nine who will compete to be the last masked celebrity standing.

Everyone's favorite celebrity detective judges Robin Thicke, Nicole Scherzinger, Ken Jeong, and Jenny McCarthy returned to their panel. This week they were joined by Emmy, Oscar and Grammy Award-winning, singer, actor and comedian Jamie Foxx as a guest judge. 

The six contestants from Group A who performed tonight were the Llama, White Tiger, Robot, Kangaroo, Miss Monster, and Turtle. But sadly at the end of the episode, the masked celebrity with the least number of votes was voted out.



 

The contestant who was eliminated on Sunday night was the Robot. The judges' predictions as to who it might be under the mask were Floyd Mayweather, Johnny Knoxville, Steve-O, Shaun White, and Flavor Flav. 

Unmasked, the Robot revealed himself to be none other than five-time Grammy Award-winning rapper Lil Wayne. It was one of the most shocking and amazing unmaskings we have seen to date on the series.

Fans who watched the premiere took to Twitter and revealed their thoughts on the new season. 

"Great season premiere of #TheMaskedSinger cant wait for the next ep," a fan wrote. Another said, "OMGGGG I can't believe who it was!!!! LOL Awesome Season Premiere!! #TheMaskedSinger."
