Fox’s ambitious new reality series THE MASKED SINGER is trotting out talented singers to win over America—and a panel of judges—but it comes with a twist: the celebrities are cloaked in head-to-toe costume.

So who the heck is competing? We’re compiling a list of all of the clues—both from their videos and the experts’ questions—and putting the answer next to the person when they’re eliminated/unmasked. (So, needless to say, spoilers ahead for everything that’s aired so far.)…
