Earlier this year in January, season 1 of 'The Masked Singer' premiered. As the series topped ranking charts it quickly became Fox's most-watched unscripted series.

Plot:

'The Masked Singer' season 3 is a reality TV singing competition series that was adapted from the South Korean format 'King of Mask Singer'. The series revolves around 12 celebrities who are undercover in head-to-toe costumes and face masks that conceal their identity from other contestants, panelists, and the audience. 

In each episode, the contestants are paired and compete against each other in a song of their choice in his/her real voice. After each face-off, the panelists and live audience vote and the winner is safe for the week while the loser will be up for elimination. 

At the end of the episode, the losers of the face-off are subjected to the earlier votes and the panelists decide who will stay and who will be eliminated. The eliminated singer then removes their mask to reveal their identity.
