The Masked Singer season 4 is right around the corner and to stoke anticipation even more, America’s kookiest singing competition teased new costumes and clues tonight ahead of the Sept. 23 premiere.
It was just like old times as host Nick Cannon kicked things off, while the panelists joked and bickered behind their platforms — the only difference was that Robin Thicke, Nicole Scherzinger, Jenny McCarthy, and Ken Jeong all sat six feet apart to keep safe in the studio while filming during the pandemic.
We got to see the Serpent, Seahorse, and Baby Alien costumes for the first time, and get clues for every season 4 contestant. (See the previously revealed costumes.)
The Masked Singer marked some exciting firsts with this season’s outfits too; The Snow Owls are the first singing duo on the program, Serpent’s costume has the first fully animatronic elements, while Baby Alien is the show’s premiere puppet ensemble.
Here are all the clues about the celebrities behind the 16 costumes:
CLUE: “When you watch my onscreen performance it will be in 3D: dynamic, delightful, and diva-licious. Mirror mirror on the wall, what makes me the biggest miracle of all?”
Visual clue: Picture of a green cow on a mirror on the wall, film shown in movie theater with “directed by Popcorn” credit.

CLUE: “If you want a hint about me, I own who I am. I know my voice can go high, but my dishes go deep.”

CLUE “You can try and figure out who we are, but as for who is more talented, it’s a tie.”

These new clues add to the little that we already know about this new roster of talent. Fox previously hinted that between the 16 masked singers, they have “appeared in five Super Bowls, have four stars on the Hollywood Walk of Fame, and one Time 100 Most Influential persons.”
