Masked Singer NZ: Ladi6, James Roque complete guessing panel with Sharyn Casey and Rhys Darby

Singer Ladi6 and comedian James Roque have joined the celebrity guessing panel for The Masked Singer NZ alongside Sharyn Casey and Rhys Darby. 

The 'Like Water' hitmaker and Frickin Dangerous Bro funnyman are the final two to be announced as panelists for the Kiwi iteration of the global singing competition, which will be hosted by The Edge's Clinton Randell. 

Randell's radio colleague Sharyn Casey was revealed to be a part of the panel on Friday after surprising the station's breakfast show by unmasking herself from an elaborate jellyfish costume. 

"It's going to be so much fun - music, costumes and a guessing game wrapped into one, I can't wait to get amongst it!" Casey said in a statement. 

Ladi6 echoed those sentiments, saying she was "super excited" to be involved with the show. 

"It'll be the most fun one could have on a TV show, there's no downside... and I've got some great ears!"

Meanwhile, Roque thought his Filipino heritage would serve him well at the desk. 

"Being Filipino, there's two things we love - singing and a party, and I feel like this show has got it all!" he said. 

"I can't wait to jam out with these mysterious guests." 

The guessing panel will be charged with the task of trying to identify a myriad of well-known Kiwis as they sing-off against one another while disguised in elaborate costumes. 

The contestants, dressed as various creatures from a tuatara to a monarch butterfly, are eliminated and unmasked each week until there is one winner left. 

The Masked Singer NZ will premiere at 7pm on Sunday, May 9 on Three and online at ThreeNow.
