Without further ado, here's how to watch The Masked Singer 2021 online and stream every season 5 show wherever you are in the world.

The racoon in chaps surely going down as one of the show's greatest creations so far, there's a new twist to the format for season 5 of the hit US singing competition, with 2021's gang of celebs split into two groups of five - Group A set to be introduced in the opening episode, followed by Group B. Nice and simple so far.

However, The Masked Singer season 5 will introduce Wild Card contestants throughout the competition, with a strong sports theme running through the 2021 run. Between them, we're told this year's competitor's boast three Super Bowl appearances, six gold medals, two world records, four Oscar nominations, nine multi-platinum singles and 26 Grammy nominations.

Nick Cannon is back on hosting duties, but the new season kicks off with Reno 911! and Scream Queens star Niecy Nash anchoring proceedings because of you-know-what. Meanwhile, Jeong is joined by regular panelists and hopeless detectives Jenny McCarthy, Nicole Scherzinger and Robin Thicke.

It's the TV show the world can't enough of right now, so read on as we explain where to watch The Masked Singer season 5 online each and every week.

If you find yourself abroad and unable to access the same streaming services, there's a reason for this: geo-blocking, a common digital annoyance that means certain content can only be viewed in certain parts of the world.

Luckily, there’s an easy solution. Downloading a VPN will allow you to stream shows like The Masked Singer online anywhere. It's a simple bit of software that changes your IP address, meaning that you can access on-demand content or live TV just as if you were at home.

How to watch The Masked Singer online in the UK for free

Sorry, UK-based masked entertainment fans. Season 5 of The Masked Singer US won't be coming to a channel near you quite yet.

You can, however, currently watch The Masked Singer season 4 FREE in the UK through ITV Hub, so it's likely that the latest season will arrive in the not too distant future. 

You can also binge the UK's own version of The Masked Singer on ITV Hub for FREE.

If you're from the US or Canada but find yourself stranded in the UK, the only solution we can think of is to download a VPN and try to watch the coverage from your usual broadcaster that way.
