Happy Thanksgiving Americans! It’s a special holiday edition of The Masked Singer!
The Masked Singer continues tonight as the final three singers from “Group C” take the stage for their final chance at the Super Six. ONE celebrity mask will be eliminated tonight.
Celebrities perform in crazy costumes. After the contestants are presented, with clues, they will perform a song. Then, it’s up to the virtual audience to guess who is behind the mask.
Ken Jeong, Jenny McCarthy, Nicole Scherzinger and Robin Thicke sit on the panel, while Nick Cannon hosts and is an executive producer.
Performing tonight in Group B is: Broccoli, Mushroom and Jellyfish. Each celebrity will perform. The virtual audience votes. The bottom two singer compete in the smackdown! The judges save a singer. ONE is eliminated.
Former SNL cast member Jay Pharoah sits on the panel.
First, the Group C finalists perform The Jackson 5’s “I Want You Back,” that is “chock full of clues.” YAY BRING ON THE CHEESE. AND THE CLUES.
Clues: Once again, a friend or family member will deliver clues! Jellyfish’s sister who “crunches numbers” calls Jellyfish the “rebel” of the family and also the overachiever. As sis talks, she files her nails with a pink file. “She’s always eager to challenge herself in new arenas.” Plus, there’s a wooden tic tac toe board on her desk covered in Xs and Os. And sis’s head is a giant calculator with the numbers 57714.
Performance: Don’t Start Now by Dua Lipa – It’s a good song pick for Jellyfish. She’s pulling off the pop thing pretty well here. she even manages to move around the stage a little. Jay seems mesmerized. Turkeys will contain clues: “If you find this, you’ll know I’ve never performed on a stage quite like this.” Nicole guesses Charli XCX Jay thinks it’s a reality star, Kylie Jenner. Jenny thinks it’s athlete Michaela Maroni
Prediction: Jellyfish could be Olympic snowboarder, Chloe Kim. The pink file in her clue package could relate to the the pink hair she sported during Olympic competition.
Clues: Mushroom’s friend is a “real live government agent.” In high school Mushy was class president, with a 4.0 GPA. There is a baby doll, and a plastic bull in the video. “Mushrooms work ethic is unrivaled,” says his friend, as a toy boxing ring flashes on screen.
Performance: Unconditionally by Katy Perry – Mushroom has used his falsetto in the past. But this week, he’s belting out the big chorus. The chorus is a bit breathy, but overall, the performance is a show stopper. Mushroom’s turkey clue: “The name that I go by now, was not my name when I first sprouted.” Robin still think it’s Jaden Smith. Jay impersonates Will Smith at this point. Nicole guesses Taye Diggs. Ken thinks he’s The Weeknd.
Prediction: Jordan Fisher because of the earlier Hamilton clues. Or maybe Pharrell Williams.
Clues: Two ladies who have been the secret to Broccoli’s success give clues. “Broccoli is truly the ringmaster of our lives. He’s always been the greatest showman.” Also, “He’s larger than life. He lives to light up a room.” A white mask with holes all over it is displayed. As a kid, he used to sneak into the circus and cut holes into the curtain. One of the women pets a moosehead.
Prediction: The legendary Broccoli is obviously Paul Anka. Former teen idol, he worked with many of the greats, including Frank Sinatra. He’s also a Canadian (thus, the moose head and other Canadian clues).
Performance: Old Time Rock & Roll – Broccoli is definitely the worst singer of the three. He’s very shouty and tuneless. At one point, he kicks his feet like an old man. He’s obviously an older man. Broccoli’s turkey clue: “Do not put your broccoli in the microwave, which was invented after I was born.” Jenny says it was invented in the 40s! Jay guesses Al Roker. NO. Ken KNOWS EXACTLY WHO THIS IS. He says Ringo Starr. Ha ha ha. No way. Robin guesses Paul Anka. DING DING DING. This is who it is, absolutely.
Time for the virtual audience to vote! The singer with the most votes going to the super six is…JELLYFISH! Broccoli and Mushroom will face off in the SMACKDOWN
Broccoli – Take Me Down by Alabama – This is…pretty bad. Does Broccoli sing this as party of his Las Vegas act? I wouldn’t be surprised. Maybe at the end of this post I’ll tell my story of meeting the ultimate Broccoli stan.
Mushroom – Song for You by Leon Russell – Oh yikes. That was actually pretty off key. Mushy’s worst performance so far. It’s a good thing the judges are choosing.
The WINNER of the smackdown is…Mushroom! Broccoli is ELIMINATED. First impression guesses: Nicole guessed Bill Murray. But now she thinks he’s Wayne Newton. Ken first thought it was Martin Short. Now he thinks it’s Ringo Starr. Robin guessed Bob Newhart at first. Now he thinks it’s Paul Anka. Jenny guessed Jerry Springer at first. Now she thinks it’s Neil Sedaka. Jay guessed Al Roker earlier now he thinks it’s Paul Simon. BROCCOLI TAKES IT OFF AND IT’S PAUL ANKA. Robing was right. Those Canadian clues were key! Also the Italian clues from last week gave it away. Geez. HE HAS A 14 YEAR OLD SON WHAT. Robin’s impression of his dad, the late Alan Thicke was absolutely precious: “Canadian, Robin!” (Alan was Canadian).
