Four seasons into its run, Fox's hugely successful competition series The Masked Singer shows no signs of slowing down. Audiences can’t seem to get enough of anonymous celebrities donning outrageous costumes and singing their hearts out, and with good reason -- it’s pure unadulterated entertainment. When the show debuted in January 2019, no one really knew what to expect. It was odd, to say the least. But the audience loved it, it became a family viewing favorite, and celebrities have since been lining up to disguise themselves and belt out songs. We couldn't help but wonder: In an industry where your face is your moneymaker, why would such luminaries as Bret Michaels (The Banana), Sarah Palin (The Bear), Ricki Lake (The Raven), Tom Bergeron (The Taco), Dionne Warwick (The Mouse), Gladys Knight (The Bee) or Chaka Khan (Miss Monster), to name just a few who have appeared on the show, want to go there?
