The hit Fox competition show "The Masked Singer" kicked off its Season 10 in stellar fashion. Last Wednesday's episode unveiled the face behind Rubber Ducky - none other than the "Black-ish" star, Anthony Anderson. This big reveal comes after the unmasking of pop sensation, Demi Lovato as Anonymouse in a special episode on September 17.

The judging panel, always up for a challenge, threw out their guesses. Ken Jeong hit the nail on the head by guessing Anderson. In contrast, Jenny McCarthy Wahlberg leaned towards Marlon Wayans, Robin Thicke felt it was David Arquette, and Nicole Scherzinger suspected Jaleel White.

Anderson delivered a riveting performance of “Come On Eileen” by Dexy’s Midnight Runners. His clue package hinted at his journey from humble beginnings to television fame, emphasizing his deep ties to family and the trajectory that brought him to the show's stage.

This season, "The Masked Singer" has revamped its format, dividing competitors into three groups before leading up to the Battle Royale semi-finals. Fans will be reintroduced to the Wild Card contestants, a twist where a newcomer can join each group.

The “Ding Dong Keep It On Bell” also makes a comeback during the semi-finals, letting judges save a contestant from elimination.

Season 10's Dazzling Line-Up

With a line-up of 16 star-studded costumes like “Donut,” “Anteater,” “Hawk,” and “Rubber Ducky,” this season promises to be exhilarating.

Teasers indicate that contestants bring a collective accolade of 40 medals, 33 Grammy nominations, and over 50 tattoos. Viewers can anticipate themed episodes, including tributes to Elton John, DreamWorks Animation’s upcoming “Trolls Band Together”, and even a “Harry Potter Night” during Halloween week.

Other themes include “NFL Night”, “Disco”, and “I Wanna Rock”. Host Nick Cannon will return, accompanied by the seasoned panelists: Jenny McCarthy Wahlberg, Nicole Scherzinger, Ken Jeong, and Robin Thicke.
