Explaining how the change will affect the show, executive producer Craig Plestis told Entertainment Weekly: "It's almost like we have three finales in our show. We have a winner from Group A and Group B, and they'll then be going head-to-head almost like a prizefight to see who is the Masked Singer [in the finale].

Fans can't wait for the return of The Masked Singer US

"But the great thing is, they'll be taking on each other, and they've never sat on the same stage together until that moment."

Showrunner James Breen added: "I think it's not a format that would have always worked on the show, but we had such great singers this season that we knew that whoever made it into that final two, it could be all about these beautiful voices and performances, and it would still sustain a really good finale."
