Is The Masked Singer new tonight on Fox? The season 5 path ahead

Masked SingerIs The Masked Singer new tonight on Fox? Within this article, we’re going to be taking on an answer to that question — and, of course, talking more about what the future holds.

Alas, we do need to kick this article off with a dose of bad news: There is no new episode coming on the air tonight. There is still an episode, but it’s a sing-along featuring old performances. This is something that we’ve seen the series do in past years, and the synopsis below gives you more insight on what’s coming:

For the first time ever, Nick Cannon hosts “The Maskie Awards,” a special sing-a-long episode celebrating the “best of” Season Five. The Season Five contestants boast a combined 26 Grammy Award nominations, nine multi-Platinum singles, four Academy Award nominations, three Super Bowl appearances, six gold medals and two world records! Find out which Season Five characters are awarded Maskies in the all-new “The Sing-A-Long: The Maskie Awards” special singalong episode of THE MASKED SINGER airing Wednesday, April 28 (8:00-9:02 PM ET/PT) on FOX. (MS-509) (TV-PG D, L)

The real misnomer here is The Masked Singer claiming that this is happening “for the first time ever.” It’s the first time we’ve had it themed in such a way, so maybe that’s what they are talking about. This show tonight is meant to just be fun and silly — even if technically there isn’t all that much in the way of new content.

So why the repeat tonight? It may have to do with a Presidential Address from Joe Biden, even if that technically is taking place a little bit later in the evening. Fox probably just didn’t want a new episode in the event of some last-minute changes.
