It's always hard to predict who is who on The Masked Singer and Season 4 isn't any different. So far, the clues have been sparse and the judges — Robin Thicke, Jenny McCarthy, Nicole Scherzinger, and Ken Jeong — are guaranteed to be stumped on a few of the disguised singers.
As always Nick Cannon gives a few clues about each of the masked singers, and the group as a whole. This time around, the fourth season features 16 contestants who, combined, share 46 Grammy nominations, 23 platinum records, 10 Hall of Fame appearances, and one Olympic gold medal. NBD.
