Heads up, ‘The Masked Singer’ fans: Fox to air one extra episode of Season 8 on December 7

If you thought Amber Riley winning the Golden Mask during the November 30 finale of “The Masked Singer” was the end of Season 8, you’d be dead wrong. Fox’s wild and wacky reality TV show still has one extra episode left, the Seasonal Sing-A-Long Spectacular, which will air in its normal Wednesday night time slot on December 7, 2022.

The annual Sing-A-Long is a chance for fans at home to whet their whistles and croon along with the contestants of Season 8. Expect many of your favorites to make special holiday appearances, so you can pluck along with the winner (Amber Riley as Harp), bleat with the runners-up (Wilson Phillips as Lambs) or shiver with the semi-finalist (Nikki Glaser as Snowstorm). As always, the lyrics will appear on screen with a bouncing ball keeping the tempo.

This eighth installment featured more costumes than ever before — 22, to be exact. And the format was tweaked so that multiple celebrities were unmasked every week during special themed episodes (think “TV Themes Night” or “Fright Night”). Perhaps this new change was what allowed the show to cast so many more famous faces than ever before?

The 19 contestants who were eliminated prior to the semi-finals were: William Shatner (Knight), Eric Idle (Hedgehog), Chris Kirkpatrick (Hummingbird), Jeff Dunham (Pi-Rat), Montell Jordan (Panther), Mike Lookinland, Barry Williams & Christopher Knight (Mummies), Daymond John (Fortune Teller), Mario Cantone (Maize), Gloria Gaynor (Mermaid), Jerry Springer (Beetle), Kat Graham (Robo Girl), Joey Lawrence (Walrus), Le’Veon Bell (Milkshake), George Foreman (Venus Fly Trap), George Clinton (Gopher), Chris Jericho (Bride), Adam Carolla (Avocado), Linda Blair (Scarecrow) and Ray Parker Jr. (Sir Bug a Boo).

Nick Cannon returned to host Season 8 of “The Masked Singer” and the four panelists were, as always, Robin Thicke, Jenny McCarthy, Ken Jeong and Nicole Scherzinger. This year, only Nicole was savvy enough to guess the identities of the winner and the runners-up. Hey, where’s her second Golden Ear trophy?
