While the music and performances make the show great, it’s the mystery and guessing game that makes the show an obsession! We’re here to break down all the new clues, show the hilarious spoilers, and collect all the clues about the secret identities of the hidden celebrities.

From hints buried in the show’s various clue packs throughout the season, to some of the internet’s best aggregate guesses and deductions, we’re compiling a full breakdown of every piece of evidence to try and solve the case for who’s underneath. of each elaborate mask.

We’re also here to keep track of everyone who’s been unmasked, just like we did for season 1, for season 2, for season 3 (where we got almost every prediction correct), and for season 4. And, to As more stars are unmasked over the course of the season, ET will update this master list with new clues and theories about the celebrity within each costume. For now, here’s a look at what we know so far about each character in Season 5!

New format and turns:

Before we get into the contestant breakdowns and spoiler details, it’s important to address some of the big changes and twists this season of competition.

First, there is a new host! Shortly before production began, host Nick Cannon tested positive for COVID-19, and the producers tapped comedian Niecy Nash to guest-star for the first half of the season. However, late last month it was confirmed that Cannon will be returning before the end of season 5.

The singing show has also added wild card rounds for the upcoming season, with new masked celebrities featured over the course of the show. During the season, there will be two groups of five contestants to start, and the “wild card” contestants will have the opportunity to break into the party and take the stage at the end of each episode for a chance to unseat another contestant in that competition from the week.

Additionally, the show will feature an entirely new character, Cluedle-Doo, a secret celebrity in a rooster costume who delivers clues – and red herrings – throughout the season. While Cluedle-Doo will not be competing, he will be a cluemaster whose identity will also be revealed at some point during the season.

The clues:

First, let’s look at the traditional roundup of accolades and cumulative accomplishments shared by this season’s cast of underground singers. According to the show, they have “a combined total of 26 GRAMMY nominations, 9 multiplatinum singles, 4 Academy Award nominations, 3 Super Bowl appearances, 6 gold medals and 2 world records.”

So we’re definitely going to have some athletes and some superstars as singers. The Academy Award nominations hint that there might be some big screen stars, however singers can get Oscar love too, so we’ll see if that’s a mistake.
