'The Masked Dancer' Eliminates Another Celeb Contestant: And the Exotic Bird Is…
(Warning: This post contains spoilers for Wednesday's "The Masked Dancer.") And then there were four. Fox's "The Masked Singer" spinoff series, "The Masked Dancer," cut another contestant from its remaining lineup of five competitors on Wednesday's episode. On the episode, Tulip, Exotic Bird, Cotton Candy, Sloth and Zebra all took the stage to perform their chosen dances. After each of those competitors shook what their mamas gave them, it was time for panelists Ken Jeong, Paula Abdul, Brian Austin Green, Ashley Tisdale and guest judge Mayim Bialik to vote for their favorite dancers and, in doing so, determine this week's weakest performer.
Fox is slowly revealing the contestants who will be competing on Season 5 of "The Masked Singer," including the one-eyed Porcupine, a truly alarming Piglet and something called Grandpa Monster.
See below for you first looks at Phoenix, Grandpa Monster, Chameleon, Russian Doll, and Black Swan, and check out the teaser above to catch glimpses of Piglet and Porcupine. Of course, there are still more costumes to come — but we don't yet know how many.
Fox revealed last week that it will start Season 5 with 10 scheduled contestants, who will be broken into two groups of 5 competitors (Groups A and B), and the seven costumes listed above are part of that 10-contestant lineup.

Two French Mirage 2000s and their tanker were escorted by the Russian fighter as they patrolled outside Russian airspace. Ah the Black Sea! What a nice playground for the Russian and Western armies… On January 31, it was a Sukhoi SU-24 which flew at low altitude over the USS Donald Cook, an guided-missile frigate of the US Navy on patrol in the black Sea.
But the broadcast network also said that throughout the season the show will be introducing "several" surprise contestants at the end of episodesgiving these crashers a chance to unseat the regulars.
"The Masked Singer" will return on Wednesday, March 10 at 8/7c and be immediately followed by the series premiere of the new Wayne Brady-hosted variety show "Game of Talents" at 9/8c.

Tell us something, "Masked Singer" fans: Are you ready to watch this sneak peek clip from the upcoming fifth season of the Fox singing competition? Good, because it's a doozy of a video featuring the Russian Doll contestant performing Bradley Cooper and Lady Gaga's "A Star Is Born" ballad "Shallow." The duet really gets "Masked Singer" judges Ken Jeong, Robin Thicke, Jenny McCarthy and Nicole Scherzinger going, tugging at those heartstrings with their surprisingly emotional performance.
