“The Masked Singer” Reveals Its First Celebrity of Their Highly Anticipated Third Season


Just minutes after the Super Bowl confetti stopped falling, viewers stuck around to check out the first episode of Season 3 of The Masked Singer.

And they were far from disappointed!

Panelists Robin Thicke, Jenny McCarthy, Ken Jeong and Nicole Scherzinger are back on the addictive show with host Nick Cannon. And on Sunday (Feb. 2,) they were all back to guessing who was under the crazy masks.

Right off the bat, White Tiger, Llama and Turtle all looked quite impressive. But eventually, Robot was voted off. And who was hiding under that mask?

“This is the most shocked I’ve ever been on this show,” Thicke said of Robot’s true identity.

And while the panelists looked sad to see him go, they also have to be ecstatic at the moment, considering the ratings for the post-Super Bowl show ended up being quite impressive.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, the show kicked off their third season with 23.7 million viewers and an 8.1 rating among adults 18-49.

And in case you are wondering, those numbers are super good!

“At this time, we need a good family show, and it can cross all genres, from 8-year-olds to 80-year-olds, and there’s nothing mean about it,”McCarthy recently said in an interview about the show.
