FOX’s The Masked Singer enters Week Four of its competition! So far, the singing show has unmasked the Hippo (NFL player Antonio Brown), the Pineapple (legendary comedian Tommy Chong), and the Deer (football icon Terry Bradshaw). 

There are several frontrunners that have emerged over the few weeks. The singers behind the Bee Mask, the Lion Mask, the Peacock Mask, and the Monster Mask entertained the audience and the panel (Ken Jeong, Jenny McCarthy, Robin Thicke, and Nicole Scherzinger) with their fantastic performances.  

Tonight, the Bee, the Raven, the Alien, the Poodle, and the Rabbit all return to the stage to impress the panel and guest judge Joel McHale that they are ready to compete. Who rose to the occasion? Which celebrity was in danger of leaving? Which singer was forced to remove their mask? Read on to their find out!

Before the episode, The Masked Singer posted their latest round of clues onto their YouTube channel. The Alien held a crystal ball, while the Bee contained two tennis balls. Meanwhile, three oranges accompanied the Rabbit and a pair of red plastic dumbbells accompanied the Poodle. Finally, the Raven was dancing with a shadow without wearing its signature beak.

The Rabbit was first to sing tonight. He revealed that he worked as an amusement park and felt boxed in while being a group. He performed Avicii and Aloe Blacc’s “Wake Me Up” and the judges immediately narrowed down to one of the *NSYNC men.  Robin Thicke noticed a bit of twang in his voice, while Nicole loved that he showed off his voice. The panel guessed the Masked Singer guessed Joey Fatone, JC Chasez, or a member of either Lady Antebellum and Rascal Flatts.

The Alien was the second singer to perform. She performed The Cardigans’ “Lovefool (Say That You Love Me)” and immediately I thought of LaToya Jackson because I recognized her voice. She told the panel that she is a quadruple threat and the group thought it was still a Kardashian-Jenner, a member of the Fifth Harmony, or Paris Hilton.

The Raven made her grand entrance. She revealed that she was the loneliest bird in a small town and admitted that she cried “tears of love in the Hudson River.” This week, the Raven performed Lady Gaga’s “Bad Romance.” The performance was a bit avant-garde, and I thought that the vocals were horrible. However, Ken called it one of the most honest performances of the series. The panel guessed that the Masked Singer was Sally Jessy Raphael, Kelly Ripa, or Sherri Shepherd.

The Poodle returned to the stage. The singer needed to be flawless with her performance and that she tries out new material with her friends.  The Poodle performed Cyndi Lauper’s “Time After Time” on a giant swing.  During the performance, Ken told Joel that the Poodle was not a professional singer but a comedian. However, the girls thought it was a personal trainer. The panel suggested Kellyanne Conway, Jillian Michaels, Kathy Griffin, or Omarosa was under the Poodle Mask.

The Queen “Bee” of the competition, the Bee Mask, was the last masked singer to perform. She revealed that it was hard for her to keep up with the modern day music industry. The Bee Mask performed Bruno Mars’ “Locked Out of Heaven” and gave me chills. Robin and Jenny thought it was Gladys Knight, while Nicole Scherzinger was Patti LaBelle under the Bee Mask.

After the panel and the studio audience voted, the Masked Singer that was forced to unmask this week was the Poodle! Both the audience and panel was shocked to learn that the Poodle would be leaving the competition. Before the unmasking, the panel revealed that it could be Judge Judy (Robin Thicke), Jillian Michaels (Nicole Scherzinger and Joel McHale), Kathy Griffin (Jenny McCarthy), and Melissa Rivers (Ken Jeong).

It turned out that the singer behind the Poodle Mask was MARGARET CHO!

Next week, the Lion Mask, the Monster Mask, the Peacock Mask, and the Unicorn Mask return to The Masked Singer stage.
