The Masked Singer returns Wednesday at 9 pm ET. Check out our spoilers and live recap of the show including clues and guesses for who's behind the Rabbit, Alien, Raven Pineapple, Poodle and Bee masks.

The Masked Singer debuted Wednesday, January 2 and become an instant hit with American fans. The show returns again January 9 for the second episode of the season as six more disguised contestants prepare to perform for the audience, at the end of which, one will be unmasked.

If you're tuning into the show for the first time The Masked Singer is a super silly singing competition that's less about having killer chops and more about making the audience scratch their heads. The show takes 12 secret celebrities and provides a small handful of clues each of them before they perform. At the end of the night, whichever performer the audience deems the worst singer of the evening will end up being unmasked while the remaining members move on to the round of the show. In time, all masked performers will be revealed but until then, we'll all be driven collectively crazy trying to sort out who is behind the elaborate facades.

Last week saw the first six contestants - Hippo, Unicorn, Lion, Deer, Monster, and Peacock take the stage with the Hippo being unmasked at the end (Steelers Antonio Brown). During Episode 2 the next six contestants — Rabbit, Alien, Raven, Pineapple, Poodle and Bee -- will face off against one another while also wearing elaborate head-to-toe costumes.

Once the show begins, we'll be providing a live blogged recap of everything that happens, including the clues given and songs performed by each of the masked contestants. In addition, we'll provide our best-guessed spoilers for who might be behind each of the masks. Episode 2 is one you won't want to miss, so be sure to check in with us on Wednesday at 9 pm EDT for a full recap of the event.
