Performance – Diamonds are a Girls Best Friend by Marilyn Monroe – Kitty shows the panel a different side of her TALENT. She’s got talent. Got it? Heh. The judges are on their feet. For a second she sails up into her soprano. The singers make something tasty as a clue. Masked Munchies: It’s a piece of cake. Super sweet and full of layers. It’s an “opera” cake. So opera. That’s a very good clue. Gordon guesses Charlotte Church SO DANG CLOSE. Ken guesses Lea Michele. Doesn’t sound like her at all. Jenny guesses Eva Longoria.
Prediction: Kitty is Jackie Evancho. The cape, the sword fighting, the monkey refer to Phantom of the Opera, a musical that Jackie loves. Her Masked Munchies clue is an Opera Cake. Jackie began as an 11 year old opera singer on America’s Got Talent. The backstage scene in the clues could refer to being backstage at a talent show. Jackie moved to New York City from Pittsburgh, hence the “big apple.” Could the swashbuckling security guards refer to the Pittsburgh Pirates? Jackie reportedly has very good manners.

Performance: Die a Happy Man by Thomas Rhett – He enters the audience to dance with a fan. He’s not the best singer, but he knows how to play to the (voting) crowd. Masked Munchies: Spaghetti and Meatballs. Ken guesses Jeff Bridges because “spaghetti western” Such a ridiculous reach. But Ken! Gordon guesses Charles Kelley from Lady Antebellum. Oops. Jenny nails it! She guesses Barry Zito.

Masked Munchies: Fried Catfish. Gordon guesses Lil Jon. Robin guesses Bow Wow. DING. Nicole guesses Omarion. So far, Gordon’s guesses have been reasonable.
Prediction: Frog is Bow Wow. He starred in the basketball movie “Like Mike” at age 13. The basketball shirt with the “23” is also a clue. Bow Wow also has a single titled “Basketball.” The P.D. is another reference to CSI: Cyber, which he starred in. Bow Wow played a guy named Twinkie in Fast and Furious: Tokyo Drift.
Clues: A bunch of telephones “off the hook,” Angel Hotline, Fish hooks, Must be “2000 years older to call.”
Performance: Black Velvet by Alannah Myles – This is a better vocal performance than last week. I have no idea why she was terrible last time. Maybe a better song for her range, even if hopelessly dated. Jenny calls it the best performance on Masked Singer, ever. Uhm No. Masked Munchie: Some kinda bug on a stick? The panel wants Nick to try one. And FOX turns will he eat a bug or no into a commercial break cliffhanger. Hm. And he eats it. Gordon says they are a staple in Vietnam, and good for you!

Performance: Story of My Life by One Direction – Astronauts voice continues to be super warbly. He also has breath issues. He gives the song a bit of a country twang. This vocal just is not good. He’s the weakest singer left, I think. Masked Munchies: King Cake with Mardis Gras beads. Ken guesses Jonathan Groff Nicole guesses Skylar Astin. Gordon guesses Jonathan Taylor Thomas. Robin agrees with Gordon.
Prediction: Astronaut is Hunter Hayes. Hunter is from Louisiana and has cajun ancestry. Hence, the King Cake, Mardis Gras beads and crawfish.
Clues: A giant chess board with chess pieces. A clock with Chess game. A heart on a rook. A clock that says 3:23 and 9:15. A book with a biohazard sign on the cover. A heart with a crown. And a Ram.
Performance: Stay by Alessia Cara – Turtle has a timeless pop voice. His performances so far have been underrated. Robin thinks he killed the dance moves. Masked Munchies: Tortilla chips and apple salsa. Gordon is appalled. Robin guesses Gavin DeGraw. Gordon guesses Adam Lambert. HELL NO. Ken guesses Zayn Malik.
Prediction: Turtle is Jesse McCartney. The heart with a crown, the chess board, the fighting, all refer to Jesse’s role in the video game series Kingdom Hearts. Plus, Jesse has a song called “Checkmate.” The biohazard sign refers to Jesse’s role in the Chernobyl Diaries. Jesse is an Aries, which is represented by a Ram. The tri-colored “chips” could refer to Alvin and the Chipmunks, which Jesse voiced.
Leaving the competition tonight is ASTRONAUT. No surprised at all. He’s definitely the weakest singer left. Last guesses: Jenny guesses Ben Platt. Robin guesses Jonathan Taylor Thomas Gordon guesses Jonathan Taylor Thomas. Nicole guesses Hunter Hayes. DING. She finally connects the Capitol 4th clue from earlier in the season. Ken guesses Skylar Astin.
