The rabbit performed first ("Poison", by Bell Biv DeVoe), followed by the unicorn ("I Love It", by Icona Pop), the alien ("Happy", by Pharrell Williams), and the lion ("California Dreamin'", by Sia). The Masked Singer is unique, bold, original and embraces the DNA of all the best Fox unscripted shows.

Rob continued: 'We look forward to season two being even more fun, weird and wonderful than the first'.

Between all the celebrity competitors on the show, there are 65 Grammy nominations, 16 multi-Platinum albums, 16 Emmy nominations, nine Broadway shows, four stars on the Hollywood Walk of Fame and four Super Bowl titles.

Based on the global format, the competition series features celebrities facing off against one another with one major twist: each singer is shrouded from head to toe in an elaborate costume, complete with full face mask to hide his or her identity.

That's where veteran reality TV producer Craig Plestis ("America's Got Talent", "Deal or No Deal") first saw a version of "The Masked Singer" while dining with his daughter, Clara, who's in her 20s. Judges include Ken Jeong, Jenny McCarthy, Nicole Scherzinger, and Robin Thicke.

Now she's a kind of cult leader who claims she popularized Yoga and was sued a year ago over something called "vaginal jade eggs". Sanderson claims in the lawsuit that the 46-year-old actress left him injured on the mountain and didn't send for help.

Who do you think the remaining celebrities behind the mask are? Thus far, the big reveals have been Antonio Brown (Hippo), Tommy Chong (Pineapple), Terry Bradshaw (Deer) and Margaret Cho (Poodle).

TV producer Craig Plestis made a decision to bring "The Masked Singer" to the United States after seeing the show at a Thai restaurant.

'Hopefully the individuals will watch it and be inspired to be on the show and, just like in Korea and in Thailand, it really sparks a lot of other people to want to be on the show and surprise their kids when they're watching the show, ' he said.

The press release from FOX states The Masked Singer had the highest-rated unscripted debut on any network in more than seven years, excluding post-NFL telecasts.
