“The Masked Singer” returns tonight after a week off with an episode called “Clash of the Masks.” But in TheWrap’s sneak-peek clip from Wednesday’s installment, it’s actually the panelists who are butting heads.
In the clip above, which is exclusive to TheWrap, Ken Jeong and his pal Joel McHale, who returns this week as a guest judge for Fox’s oddball singing competition, strongly (and playfully) disagree over the identity of The Tree. While Jeong thinks it has to be “My Big Fat Greek Wedding” star Nia Vardalos, McHale is pulling for “Will & Grace” star Megan Mullally.
Host Nick Cannon thinks McHale has the better guess here, leading Jeong to tease Cannon for being “short.” (We’ll save you a Google search: Cannon is 6 feet tall, Jeong is 5 feet 5 inches tall.)
McHale then tells his fellow “Community” alum that he shouldn’t keep calling people short if he’s shorter.
Here’s the description for tonight’s “Masked Singer,” courtesy of Fox:
Four more of the remaining celebrities take on their next round of dazzling performances. Guest panelist Joel McHale joins host Nick Cannon, Ken Jeong, Jenny McCarthy, Nicole Scherzinger and Robin Thicke as they attempt to guess the identities of fully costumed Hollywood stars as they battle in TV’s biggest singing competition. Collectively, all of the Season Two undercover celebrities have amassed 69 Emmy Award nominations, 42 Grammy Award nominations, 22 Broadway shows, three New York Times Best Sellers and two have been named TIME magazine’s Most Influential People. Will one of your favorites be revealed? One will be unmasked in the all-new “Clash of the Masks” episode.
“The Masked Singer” returns tonight, Wednesday, at 8/7c on Fox.
