Two more country singers are set to join in the fun of Fox’s The Masked Singer — the musical-performance show all about uncovering a mysteriously disguised celebrity. Rita Wilson and Chrissy Metz will both appear on episodes as guest panelists in the next month.

First up is Rita Wilson ,who will join regular panelists Ken Jeong, Robin Thicke, Jenny McCarthy-Wahlberg and Nicole Scherzinger and try her best at figuring out who’s underneath those wild costumes. The special, two-hour “Super 8″ episode will air on April 21, and will end with two celebrities being unmasked.

Meanwhile, emerging country/Christian artist and This Is Us actress Metz will follow Wilson’s lead. She’ll join the panelists’ desk for a “Spicy 6″ episode, airing May 5 as the last episode before the show’s quarter final round. Both are sure to be full of wild antics — both from the contestants and panelists.

Wilson’s latest EP, Trilogy 1, is out now, and Metz released the empowering “Girl Go” last week. It’s part of a musical passion side-project that also includes Metz’s songs “Talking to God,” “Actress,” and “Feel Good.” Fox’s The Masked Singer previously featured country stars like Hunter Hayes, who wowed panelists and fans as “The Astronaut” in 2019.
