The Season 3 Finale Was Originally Scheduled to Air on May 27
While the finale of The Masked Singer is currently scheduled for May 20, the original air date was May 27. According to Express, the schedule changed seemed to be motivated by the fan’s negative response to the season’s “singalong” episode, which aired as a recap of the contestants’ top performances of the season. Fan’s were disappointed by the unexpected filler episode, in place of an episode with new performances, clue packages, and guesses.
Per the original schedule, the “Road to the Finals” recap would have aired on May 20. It now serves as part one of a two-night finale for season 3.
The season 3 finale of The Masked Singer airs on Wednesday, May 20 at 8/7c on NBC.
