You watch. You sing along. You guess. You guess wrong. Naming the artists on “The Masked Singer” isn’t as easy as it looks — and the judges agree.

Just when you think you know, you realize you don’t know anything — including who’s behind the elaborate disguise.

Nick Cannon (on “The Masked Singer”): “Our masked singer who must take it off is…”

Robin Thicke, judge: “We just want to know who’s behind the mask, and there’s nothing like that on television.”

Robin Thicke (on “The Masked Singer”): “I think Terry Bradshaw laughs the exact same way.”

With nine singers left, the judges are telling Deco they’re never 100 percent sure who’s singing.

Nick Cannon, host: “Some of them is like, ‘Oh man, I knew it.’ And then some are like, ‘Ehh.’ Some were like, ‘Oh my God, where did that come from?”

Jenny McCarthy, judge: “I guessed quite a few of them, but I’m still surprised because I’m right, because I’m never right.”

Jenny McCarthy (on “The Masked Singer”): “You go, girl.”

Ken Jeong, judge: “Nicole, like, when in doubt she goes, ‘Oh, I know. Are you a magician?'”

Nicole Scherzinger, judge: “Well, every package is like conceal and reveal.”

Ken Jeong: “Right, right.”

Nicole Scherzinger: “A magical performance, and I’m like, ‘They’re a magician.'”

Ken Jeong: “They’re all magicians. This should be ‘The Masked Magician,’ hmm, not ‘The Masked Singer.'”

Ken Jeong (on “The Masked Singer”): “I’m so freaking confused right now. I don’t know who I am.”

Some people are surprised by the show’s smash success, but Jenny McCarthy isn’t one of ’em.

Jenny McCarthy: “My agent was like, ‘What? You really want to do this thing?’ I go, ‘You don’t understand; this is going to be the greatest, most talked about show,’ and it is a hit around the whole world.”

Who will join Tommy in the ranks of the unmasked?

“The Masked Singer” returns at 9 p.m., right here on 7.
