New for The Masked Singer Season 6
In addition, The Masked Singer is switching up the format a bit this season. The celebrities will sing in one of two groups. But for the first time in the show’s history, the winner of Group A will face off against the winner of Group B for the “ultimate Mask-Off Face-Off in the season finale episode.”
Also, Wildcards are back, with each group featuring several wildcard contestants joining the competition to unseat a current celebrity.
The “Take if Off Buzzer”
At the end of the special, Nick announced the biggest twist, the Take It Off Buzzer. Basically, if a panelist is sure they know who is behind the mask, they can hit the buzzer. At that point, they give the name. If they are correct, that contestant has to unmask immediately and leave the competition. The panelist who guessed correctly earns two points toward their quest for the Golden Ear Trophy.
However, if the panelist is wrong, contestant remains masked and on the show, but the panelist will lose two points towards the Golden Ear Trophy. There are caveats. The new buzzer can only be used once in Group A and once in Group B. Not every panelist will get a chance to use the buzzer.
