For the first time in Undercover Boss history, two celebrities—GRAMMY Award-winning artist Darius Rucker and world-famous chef Marcus Samuelsson—go undercover in their own specialized fields as part of the show's new Celebrity Undercover Boss edition.

Rucker, a country-music superstar who formerly fronted the uber-successful '90s alt-rock band Hootie & The Blowfish, travels to Austin, Texas, on an undercover journey to discover the next great musical acts.

During his time undercover, Rucker runs an open mic night, works as a roadie, and strolls along Austin’s famous Sixth Street in search of standout street performers.

Plus, you won't believe it when Rucker offers two aspiring artists a scholarship to Musicians Institute College of Contemporary Music, which the country singer calls one of the "best music schools in the country!"

Samuelsson, an internationally acclaimed chef and restaurateur, goes undercover to find—and mentor—new culinary talent.

During his mission, he discovers some gifted aspiring chefs at a public cooking class, a culinary institute, a high-end food truck, and a soup kitchen.

Plus, for the first time on the series, state-of-the-art prosthetic makeup is used to disguise Rucker and Samuelsson, so they can blend in even better.

Will anyone recognize these famous faces when they change their identities to discover new talent?
