The Masked Singer season 8 continues with the second week of the third round of contestants. Nick Cannon hosts, Robin Thicke, Jenny McCarthy, Ken Jeong and Nicole Scherzinger are on the judges panel.
A new format means only ONE mask survives every week. At the end of three rounds, three celebrities will compete in the semi-finals for a chance to compete in the finale.
Tonight, it’s Comedy Roast Night on The Masked Singer. Last week, Bride was crowned The King of the Masked Singer and will face off against Snowstorm and Avocado. Two celebrities leave the competition tonight. We’re live blogging the performances and eliminations here!
Ken Jeong opens the show with a little roasting. Nick has been up all night memorizing his kids’ names. “I have nothing else to say!”
Clues: Nick calls Bride “Queen of the Masked Singer” although the queen is obviously a king. Again, that British accent is probably fake. New clue: Set List: Act Up. Oh. The clues include some roasting. Bride jokes that nobody was fooled by Jenny’s white wedding dress.
Performance: White Wedding by Billy Idol: Come to think of it, Bride might be a comedian/actor who an sing like a rockstar. Bride is a decent singer and only won last week because the competition did not display great vocals. Jon Lovitz from SNL delivers the On Stage Clue. “They have a movie career and they like to show off their chest like Jenny McCarthy, minus the movie career.” “The rexappeal is off the charts tonight!” crows Bride. Robin guesses Flea. Ken guesses Matthew Mcconaughey. Nicole guesses David Arquette.
Clues: She had to become cold blooded to do what she does. She started working at 18 it took two years to get on screen. Things have now always been pitch perfect. Snowstorm roasts: “Nicole has had more famous husbands than Nick has had baby mamas.
Performance: Thank U Next by Ariana Grande – She’s a decent singer. Not rangy, but she’s got an appealing pop tone going. She’s probably an actress who can carry a tune. She might beat Bride for the crown–if Avocado is a bad singer. On Stage Clue: “She has shared the stage with A listers like Rob Lowe and non A listers like Dr. Ken.” She says to Nick “I don’t want to get too close to you, I’m scared of getting pregnant.” Ken guesses Kathryn Hahn. Nicole guesses Eliza Schlessinger. Robin guesses Whitney Cu mmings.
Clues: He’s light years away from where he first started–in construction. He wanted that air conditioned life. He took a risk on a whole new venture. A podcast? It’s a Billion dollar industry. Joe Rogan? Erp.
Performance: Hit the Road Jack by Ray Charles – It’s a good song pick, allowing Avocado to growl his way through it. Snowstorm has probably got this. Avocado will be unmasked first because dude cannot sing. He’s a big joker, though. On Stage Clue: He’s really into home renovation. Avocado is a face you want to listen to. Avocado roasts Lovitz right back! Nicole guesses Harrison Ford. She’s joking. She guesses Joe Rogan. Jenny guesses Marc Maron. Robin guesses Tim Allen. The clues point to a comedian who hosts a podcast. There is a bunch of those guys.
After a studio audience vote, leaving the competition first is…The Bride! OK. That’s a little surprising. Bride probably only signed for a certain number of episodes (Because Masked Singer “voting” is rigged, probably). Final guesses: Ken: Matthew McConaughey Jenny: Vin Diesel. Robin: Flea Nicole: Sammy Hagar. And the Bride is…Chris Jericho! Jericho is a professional wrestler. But he has also performed as a heavy metal singer. He is the lead singer of Fozzy, according to his Wiki page, releasing 7 albums with them. He also competed on the Simon Cowell show “Celebrity Duets” back in 2006. He competed on Dancing with the Stars in 2011. And he made an appearance on America’s Got Talent in 2019.
Drew Carey is on stage to roast Avocado and Snowstorm. The two will sing the same song in their own styles. They take on Carly Simon’s “You’re So Vain.” Avocado kinda got through “Hit the Road Jack” but he’s hopeless here. Snowstorm sings a smooth jazzy version of the song. She’s adequate. bit not really a great singer. Maybe she’ll bite it next week. More roasting! The song is dedicated to “vain” Robin Thicke.
The panelists vote! Snowstorm is the new Queen of the Masked Singer. Avocado is eliminated. Final guesses. Robin: Tim Allen. Jenny: Marc Maron. Ken: Dax Shepard. Nicole: Joe Rogan. And Avocado is….Adam Carolla. He stumped the panel! He’s such a bad singer, he barely sings out.
