The fifth season of "The Masked Singer" aired its special two-hour Super 8 episode Wednesday, bringing together the remaining contestants from Groups A and B for the first time and ending with two unmaskings.
The supersized episode featured performances by Russian Doll(s), Seashell, Robopine (f.k.a. Porcupine), Yeti, Chameleon, Black Swan, Piglet and Crab. Each of those eight sang their little hearts out for host Nick Cannon, panelists Jenny McCarthy, Robin Thicke, Ken Jeong and Nicole Scherzinger and guest panelist Rita Wilson. Then, it was time for the judges and at-home audience to cast their votes for their favorite, and in doing so, select which two competitors would not move on to the Spicy Six round.
NHL postpones Wednesday's Calgary-Vancouver game
The NHL has decided to ere on the side of caution as a result of Adam Gaudette’s positive COVID-19 test. Sportsnet’s Elliotte Friedman reports (Twitter link) that tonight’s game between the Canucks and Flames has been postponed. TSN’s Frank Seravalli tweets that the decision was made after more information has surfaced regarding Vancouver’s test results; that information obviously has not yet been made public.
They ended up cutting Crab and Seashell.
Crab, who had performed Phil Collins' "In the Air Tonight," was unmasked to reveal Bobby Brown. Before his true identity was revealed, McCarthy and Jeong correctly guessed Crab was Brown, while the incorrect guesses from their fellow panelists included Ray Parker Jr., Keith Sweat and Martin Lawrence.
Then it was Seashell's turn to take it off. The contestant, who sang Tiffany's "I Think We're Alone Now" on Wednesday, was revealed to be Tamera Mowry-Housley. Ahead of her unmasking, Scherzinger correctly guessed Seashell was Mowry-Housley, but the other judges were off with guesses like Sarah Silverman, Haylie Duff, Scout Willis and Vanessa Hudgens.
'Masked Singer' Reveals New 'Wildcard' Contestant in Twist Elimination: And the Bulldog Is…
(Warning: This story contains spoilers for Wednesday's "The Masked Singer.") Group B returned to "The Masked Singer" Season 5 stage this week for their finals round, with four contestants competing and a fifth "Wildcard" coming in to shake things up. And by the end of the episode, four were left standing — but those four weren't decided by the standard vote from the judges and at-home audience. This time, guest host Niecy Nash picked the competitor who was cut for the competition and there was a very clear reason why once they were unmasked.
"The Masked Singer" Season 5 began with 10 scheduled contestants, broken into two groups, with four "Wildcard" competitors joining in total.
So far, the unmasked contestants include Crab (Bobby Brown), Seashell (Tamera Mowry-Housley), Orca (Mark McGrath), Bulldog (Nick Cannon), Grandpa Monster (Logan Paul), Raccoon (Danny Trejo), Phoenix (Caitlyn Jenner) and Snail (Kermit the Frog).
Per Fox, "The season five contestants boast a combined 26 Grammy nominations, nine multi-platinum singles, four Academy Award nominations, three Super Bowl appearances, six gold medals and two world records."
Next week, the Spicy Six — Russian Doll, Robopine (f.k.a. Porcupine), Yeti, Chameleon, Black Swan and Piglet — will return to compete once again to stay in the running for Season 5's Golden Mask Trophy.
"The Masked Singer" airs Wednesdays at 8/7c on Fox.
