Tonight the Face Offs return on The Masked Singer! It’s Night Angel vs Kangaroo and Turtle vs Astronaut. ONE celebrity The loser of each face off will battle in the Smack Down! The loser will leave the competition. The three remaining contestants move on to the Super 6.
Ken Jeong, Jenny McCarthy, Nicole Scherzinger and Robin Thicke sit on the panel, while Nick Cannon serves as host. Yvette Nicole Brown from community is the guest judge.
Night Angel vs Kangaroo
Clues: It’s the battle of the reality stars!
Performance – Man I Feel Like a Woman by Shania Twain – Night Angel sounds HORRIBLE this week. I don’t think this is the right song for her. Maybe she has a cold? Her vibrato is all wonky and her voice cracks. Yvonne notes how different the singers sound in studio. Night angel’s security bag: Snowglobe, Ostrich, a bee and a crown. “I present you with these clues, so you can stop winging it with your guesses.” BOSS. This bag is mine. Hm. Ken guesses Taraji P. Henson. He jokes “I married a ho.” His wife’s last name is Ho. Get it? GET IT? Hm. Nicole guesses KeKe Palmer. Yvonne guesses Vanessa Williams.
Prediction: Night angel is Kandi Burruss from Real Housewives of Atlanta.
Performance: No Air by Jordin Sparks – Why not sing Jordin Sparks when the panel has thrown her name out as a guess several times? Of course, Kangaroo is absolutely NOT JORDIN as this pretty terrible cover of the song proves. What’s wrong with these performances so far? That was SO OFF PITCH. Blargh. Kangaroo’s security bag : contains: Tower of London, a record player, a ship in a bottle, lipstick and a pom pom with a “FIRST” tag. Hm. She confesses that she’s never performed in front of people, before her Masked Singer experience. Robin guesses La La Anthony. Ken guesses Keira Knightley. Nicole guesses Blac Chyna. Yvette guesses Ayesha Curry.
Prediction: Kangaroo was UNMASKED tonight! Check out the big reveal at the bottom of the page.
And the winner of the face off is…Night Angel!
Astronaut vs Turtle
Clues: It’s the battle of the teen idols! “In a lot of ways this face off was inevitable.” No kidding! “We both kept the ladies swooning.” Thrilling the kiddos in the aughts, these two. (See below for predictions!)
Performance: If I Can’t Have You by Shawn Mendes – Now, this is a pretty good performance from Astronaut. He’s got some breath control problems (The suit maybe). But he’s staying on key, mostly. That’s a hard song to sing. In Turtles Security bag: The White House, An airplane, an accordion and a light bulb. “I’m an open book, now it’s your mission to unearth my identity.” Jenny guesses Ben Platt. Ken guesses Seth Green. Nicole guesses Austin Mahone.
Prediction: Astronaut is definitely country singer Hunter Hayes. At age 7 he was invited by Bill Clinton to perform for a White House lawn party. The accordion probably relates to his Cajun ancestry. He has performed Jambalaya on the Bayou and performed Cajun songs in French. Hunter released a single called “Light Me Up.” Maybe that’s what the light bulb means? I believe the airplane refers to him flying around to play multiple dates in 24 hours, which broke a Guinness World’s Record.
Performance: Let it Go by James Bay – Turtle is delivering a very pretty rendition of “Let it Go.” He’s the better singer here, for sure. Astronaut is definitely losing the faceoff. Nicole will be in tears any minute now. Heh. In Turtle’s security bag: Baseball glove, cologne, a sign that says Never Keep This Bag Open, a judge’s gavel, a crown on a book, and left arrow. “What should be easy is figuring out these clues, take it slow like a turtle, I promise it will fit like a glove.” Jenny guesses Adam Lambert. LOLLLL. No. Yvette guesses Joey McIntyre. Ken guesses Niall Horan.
Prediction: Turtle is most certainly the pop star, songwriter and actor, Jesse McCartney. Jesse appeared in the Princess Diaries II and sang a duet with Anne Hathaway. That explains the book with the crown cover. He guest starred on Law and Order: SVU, hence the gavel. In 2011 he introduced a woman’s fragrance called “Wanted by Jesse.” And Yvette pointed out that the sign could be an anagram for New Kids On the Block. Jesse toured with the group in 2009.
The winner of this Face Off is TURTLE.
Now that Turtle and Night Angel have won their Face Offs, it’s time for Kangaroo and Astronaut to compete in the SMACKDOWN
Kangaroo vs Astronaut
Kangaroo sings Hot Stuff by Donna Summer and it’s pretty bad. Astronaut should win by default. He sings Bye Bye Bye by N’Sync and maybe I take that back. Astronaut is having major breath control problems tonight. Both Kangaroo and Astronaut are struggling tonight. The two engage in a little scripted smacktalk after their performances. Now it’s time to vote.
The panel picks the winner! The votes are in. And the WINNER of the SMACKDOWN is Astronaut!
Leaving the competition…
Kangaroo is eliminated! Final guesses. Ken guesses Cat Deeley of So You Think You Can Dance. That’s a terrible guess. Cat has a very distinct British accent and she does not sing. Robin guesses La La Anthony. Nicole guesses Blac Chyna. Jenny guesses Jordyn Woods. DING.
And the Kangaroo is…Jordyn Woods! “You guys were off every week! Jenny is good,” she says. She used to be pals with the Kardashians and appeared on Kyle’s reality show. Now, she’s a big social media influencer.
- The wooden model plane in Kangaroo’s package is a clue to Jordyn’s modeling career and her last name, Woods.
- The Vine and Gramophone in Kangaroo’s package are clues to Jordyn’s huge social media popularity on Vine and Instagram.
