On Sunday, The Masked Singer returned its third season! However, I did not watch the premiere because I was celebrating the Kansas City Chiefs’ second Super Bowl victory.

Multiple media outlets such as Entertainment Weekly and TVLine reported that I missed a lot of action. This season, the Masked Singer invited 18 different celebrities from the entertainment and sports worlds to dress up in elaborate costumes. Because of the number of performers, The Masked Singer production team divided the performers into three groups.

Group A features the Robot, Miss Monster, the Turtle, White Tiger, Llama, and the Kangaroo. After they performed, the show’s panel (Jenny McCarthy Wahlberg, Ken Jeong, Nicole Scherzinger, and Robin Thicke) tried to deduce the Masked Singer’s identity. However, the panel and guest star Jamie Foxx were shocked to find Lil Wayne under the Robot’s mask.

Which performer was unmasked tonight? Read on to find out!

Tonight was the Group A Masked Singer playoffs! After Nick Cannon’s legendary entrance, he introduced this episode’s guest panelist: actor Jason Biggs. The Llama was the first performer of the evening. He performed Sir Tom Jones’ “It’s Not Unusual.” Right away, I recognized the voice…The Price is Right host and Whose Line Is It Anyway moderator Drew Carey! Jenny stated that the Llama wanted to win the show. The panel guessed Johnny Knoxville, Joel McHale, and Woody Harrelson. 

Miss Monster was the second performer to hit The Masked Singer stage. She sang Reba McEntire’s “Fancy” for her second performance. I knew that voice right away….R&B legend Chaka Khan! Just like her contemporaries-the Bee (Gladys Knight) and the Flower (Patti LaBelle), I got chills! Ken called the performance “epic,” and Robin loved her lower register. The panel guessed Mary Wilson, Priscilla Pressley, and Celine Dion.

Initially, I thought that the White Tiger was actor and martial artist Jason David Frank. However, when he began to sing Marky Mark’s “Good Vibrations,” I heard iconic football player Rob “Gronk” Gronkowski’s voice. Robin loved his energy, while Nicole loved the White Tiger’s conviction as a performer. The panel guessed Hulk Hogan and “Gronk” (Robin is on the nose).

The Kangaroo revealed that she had a hard time with the size of the ears before hitting The Masked Singer stage. I heard the Kangaroo’s voice and is using the show to launch a new chapter in her career. My jaw dropped when she sang Amy Winehouse’s “You Know That I’m No Good.” I had a tough time trying to recognize her voice, but my wild guess is Jordyn Woods. Jason Biggs lead the standing ovation, and Robin declared her “the frontrunner.” The panel guessed WNBA player Candice Parker, Tatyana Ali, and former AGT judge Gabrielle Union. 

The Turtle was the final performer to take the Masked Singer stage. He sang James Arthur’s “Say You Won’t Let Go,” and I thought that the performer was actor-singer Jesse McCartney, who showcased an extraordinary range. The panel guessed that either AJ McLean, Billie Joe Armstrong, Zac Efron, and Darius Rucker were the Turtle. 

Tonight, it was the Llama’s turn to say “Goodbye!” The Masked Singer panel’s final guesses were Woody Harrelson (Nicole), Adam Carolla (Robin), Joel McHale (Ken), Kelsey Grammer (Jenny), and Johnny Knoxville (Jason Biggs). Once again, the panel was wrong and I was right…The Llama was Drew Carey!

Next week is the Group A Championships!
