It's the Masked Singer Finale and it all starts in 3, 2, 1 8 weeks ago, 12 famous faces, award winning stars from music, movies, tv and who knows what else put on mind blowing masks and went undercover to battle in the craziest and most mysterious singing competition in history. And now, our outrageous action-packed who-sung-it is down to just 3 spectacular celebrity performers: Monster, Peacock and Bee! I'm Nick Cannon and this is The Masked Singer as we've never seen it before. Tonight, you'll see never-before-seen footage from our 3 finalists in their road to the Finale. And the moment you can't miss, each of our Top 3 will give you a brand new clue that could finally reveal their secret identity. Let's take an inside look at the last 8 weeks to see how it's all come together. Roll tape! Over the last 8 weeks, we've learned that Hippo was Antonio Brown, Pineapple was Tommy Chong, Deer was Terry Bradshaw, Poodle was Margaret Cho, Unicorn was Tori Spelling, Raven was Ricki Lake, Alien was La Toya Jackson, Lion was Rumer Willis and Rabbit was Joey Fatone. Tonight, Monster, Bee and Peacock will battle it out for the last time. Keeping their secrets has been one of the most enormous challenges in TV history. Roll tape! Let's take a look at Monster's road to the Finals. I became the Monster because I've been called one before. I'm here to prove that label wrong and show a side of me you've never seen before. The panel wasn't expecting my voice to come out of this face and you probably weren't either. After finding himself in the bottom 3 after his Don't Stop Me Now (Queen) performance, Monster says his costume was smiling but inside he was devastated. He has too much riding on the show. Monster bounced back and built a monstrous following among fans. Everything felt so good on that second performance of I Don't Want To Be (Gavin DeGraw), Monster says, I felt like the real Monster. Monster began changing up his costume week after week, becoming a true contender. In the semi-finals, Monster changed course in a direction no one saw coming. You've seen my playful side, he says, but I needed to bare my soul and showcase my voice, captivating the audience and panel with Stay With Me (Sam Smith). I felt I had so much freedom, Monster says, so much to get off my chest. It felt like I had finally arrived. The panel have made guesses across the board. In the clues, we've seen boom boxes, grills and a whole lot of party. He revealed a headset on stage, we've seen him drive from the south in a Caddy, he opened up about his struggles to make a comeback after hitting rock bottom, discovering the little teddy bear he is at heart. He's not a professional singer to everyone. When I unmask, he says, everyone's going to be very surprised and wonder how they missed it. Let's take a look at some of the secrets of the unmasked artists we know and love, starting with Hippo, NFL superstar Antonio Brown. The OJ in his clue package represented his being from Florida. Antonio went to far with dancing in the end-zone, resulting in a $10k fine. And on stage, Hippo said his favorite passtime was bowling - the Superbowl and six Pro Bowls. The next to be unmasked was Pineapple, comedy legend Tommy Chong. The yin/yang symbol in his car representing his Chinese heritage. The Pipe Dream bumper sticker on the back of his car represented the government investigation into his drug use and his birthday was on the license plate. Finally, Up In Smoke was the movie he and his partner Cheech are most recognized for. The third unmasked singer was Deer, revealed to be NFL Hall of Famer Terry Bradshaw. His trophies included NFL MVP and 2x Superbowl MVP. Throwing paper airplanes represented his career as a quarterback for the Pittsburgh Steelers. The horses he said he loved are his champion quarter horses he and family breed. Poodle was the 4th to be unmasked as Margaret Cho, to Dr. Ken's chagrin. San Francisco was her home town and 415 Standup represented San Francisco's area code and her stand-up comedy career. The rainbow flag was a nod to her activism for LGBTQ rights. I'm fluffy and pink she says, but still a b*tch. Unicorn was unmasked 5th, actress and author Tori Spelling. Unicorn Hills represented her real home of Beverly Hills, as well as her starring role in Beverly Hills 90210. The baby unicorns represented her 5 children, and crafting a new identity represented her passion of crafting and her TV show, Craft Wars. She was more confident when she took her mask off than in the last 47 years. Let's take a step back to Bee's journey. I'm blessed to have had a long, storied career and I'm here to introduce myself to a new generation. I thrive off challenging myself no matter how old I get and winning this will prove I can still create a buzz. But I was so nervous at the start. I had to be led around like I was blind. I just said a little prayer and went for it, singing Chandelier (Sia). I've been on stage so many times but never like this. The costume makes it difficult to see, move, or project your voice. I didn't feel at my best but it was a thrill to sing pop hits that are new to me. Bee's legendary status was confirmed when Bee acknowledged she started singing in the 50's. The costume team opened up her mouth to make it easier for her to sing and that's when Bee got into her groove with Locked Out of Heaven (Bruno Mars) and Wrecking Ball (Miley Cyrus). She's been moved by the audience reaction and returned to her roots with a tribute to an old friend and true legend with (You Make Me Feel Like) A Natural Woman (Aretha Franklin). Bee says she began the journey far out of her element but never gave up. It's such an honor to be in the Final 3. But who am I, she asks? None of your beeswax! Turning to Bee's clues, Queen Bee has 10 Grammys. There have also been a ton of food clues from peaches to waffles and bake ware, her second most favorite thing to do. When she's unmasked, she says, America will be blown away. Next we look back at the flight of Raven, talk show host Ricki Lake. Raven gave numerous hints to being a talk show host, and she revealed on stage her Emmy for hosting The Ricki Lake Show. And she teased Cry Baby, the classic John Waters movie in which she starred. Becoming Raven was about death becoming rebirth after the loss of her husband last year. Alien landed to reveal herself as singer/songwriter La Toya Jackson. For her family, anonymity was a completely alien concept, referring to her super famous Jackson family. All the snakes clued you into her pet snakes and the famous photo in which she posed with one. The Indiana police badge referred to her appearance on Armed & Famous, in which she was sworn in a position in law enforcement. La Toya says she wasn't pre-judged behind the masked and loved every minute of it. Lion was the 8th singer to be unmasked, actress Rumer Willis. She was Hollywood Royalty, being the daughter of Bruce Willis and Demi Moore, and Hailey Times referred her home town in Hailey, Idaho. Separating from the pack and building her own empire referred to her role as Tori Ash on Empire. She's also a Leo with a tattoo of a lion on her shoulder. Her favorite movie is Wizard of Oz and she loved playing a courageous character when she was so insecure. Rabbit was the last singer to unmask, twitching even during breaks. He turned out to be singer/personality Joey Fatone, reflected in the visual hints that he grew up in Brooklyn, NY and numerous references to his boy band, NSYNC. It's Gonna Be Me was a #1 hit on their No Strings Attached album years after releasing the song, Tearing Up My Heart. Cooking was a clue to his cooking show and hot dog restaurant, Fat Ones. He enjoyed finally being able to solo. Here's the inside view on the third famous finalist, Peacock! I've done so many performances in my life, going out as a peacock is probably the coolest experience of my entire career. My dear friend Michael Jackson told him because everyone recognized him, to catapult his career to the next level, he had to cover his face. Doing this show is a fulfillment of that advice. Peacock became an instant contender with his first performance of The Greatest Show (Hugh Jackman). The stakes are high for him to reinvent himself and captivate new fans. It's never too late for a comeback. Peacock fought his fear of heights to perform Counting Stars (One Republic); on that 30' pole, he couldn't see the stage beneath him. But the audience started screaming, Peacock and that was exciting. With All of Me (John Legend), Can't Feel My Face (The Weeknd) and Let's Go (Calvin Harris featuring Ne-Yo), Peacock pushed himself harder than ever. When the chorus kicked in, he got the audience hopping, exactly as imagined in his peacock brain. Cocky as ever, Peacock promises to transport the audience to an exciting place so that when he wins, you'll be excited! Have you been following Peacock's breadcrumbs? We've seen Las Vegas and magic clues, a bullfighter with a rainbow cape, he held a dog and the Queen of England, and a creepy wig which was the reason he was once thrown in jail. His career began as a teenager, performing on stages and screens and hosted award shows, but nobody is going to expect who he is when he takes off his Peacock mask. Now, here's one more big clue for each of our Final 3 singers. Listen up, Peacock flock, Peacock says, you could say I strut like an Egyptian because I had a starring role next to a pharaoh and another alongside pyramids. Bee may have her hive, but a beehive symbolizes where I'm from. I hope to make you proud as a, well, peacock! Hello to all my Beelievers, Bee says, you may ask if I trained for the show but she won a singing competition before the panelists were even born. Peacock may have those Vegas clues, but I once had the #1 rates show on the Vegas strip! I'm no stranger to show buzzziness. What's up, Team Monster, we all may dread it but let's talk about the bird and the bee. I've got the music, the lyrics and the cadence to take them down, whether it's in my cave, at the bar, or on a boat. <Monster Laugh> Who will be the last to be unmasked? Will it be Peacock, the flashy fowl with the 8' plume and enough sequins to land a plane? I am bringing my P game because I am in it to win it, baby! Will it be Bee, the singer with an antennae so big it gets cable? She may be sweet as honey but she's ready to swarm. She's going to float like a butterfly and sing like a bee. Or will it be Monster, the one-eyed, 2 toothed, three fingered blue behemoth is four real and ready to roll. I'm going to be the last man standing, he says. The Final 3 have been rehearsing all week for their Grand Finale. Monster will take it big and go out with a bang. Bee will perform another song to which she feels very close. And Peacock has picked a song that will blow the house down. Who will win the Golden Mask? it's time to find out. The last three singers have kept us guessing for 8 weeks and now the mystery comes to an end. The three remaining masked singers will perform one last time: Monster, Bee and Peacock. It's finally time to find out, who is The Masked Singer! Please welcome the original 12 back in costume: Hippo (Antonio Brown), Pineapple (Tommy Chong), Deer (Terry Bradshaw), Poodle (Margaret Cho), Unicorn (Tori Spelling), Raven (Ricki Lake), Alien (La Toya Jackson), Rabbit (Joey Fatone) and Lion (Rumer Willis) along with your Finalists, Monster, Bee and Peacock! Are you ready? Please welcome your host, Nick Cannon, and your panel, Robin Thicke, Jenny McCarthy, Ken Jeong, and Nicole Scherzinger. We started with 12 singers, each talented in their own right, and our long masked journey has brought us to this moment righ here. Tonight, our Top 3 will face off in final competition and all will be unmasked. Who will be the King or Queen of the Golden Mask? Joining the panel again this week is guest panelist, Keenan Thompson. Let's peck around for some final clues from Peacock. The first time I strutted onto the stage, I felt 100% at home as Peacock. Performing in the mask has made him fearless; people cannot judge him based on what they've read, seen or heard about him. I am free, he says, in my career I have sung, danced, hosted, acted and hosted and lived nearly every dream he's had. The key to his success, Peacock says, is I don't relax. When I go home, I am always thinking of how to improve, watching videos of performances, going through the vocals over and over again. I am a perfectionist and I love it, and hate it. On this stage, I became The Peacock. The only question is, can I also become the Champion? Winning would mean everything and I am more determined to finish my comeback with another feather in my cap. Singing Shake A Tail Feather by Ray Charles, Peacock is in true showcase mode, another strong foot stomping vocal that lets him move his wings and strutting through the audience to a standing ovation. He fist bumps the panelists review, saying he's truly humbled to be in the Final 3. He tels Nick that he's been in show business a long time but this is the most fun thing he's ever done. Jennifer says Peacock is Neil Patrick Harris. Ken says he has nothing in his brain. Jennifer also says Donny Osmond or Harry Connick Jr. Robin thinks it could be Weird Al Yankovic. Ken says you're my favorite and you're going to win it all. Peacock tells us that winning would mean everything. Our Top 3 continues with Bee. This show has been such a challenge and I wasn't sure I could really do this in the beginning. It was a whole new setup to sing all those modern songs and they not know who you are. I've been entertaining people for almost, almost 70 years but I've never done anything quite like this. Everything was totally different, Bee says, but I came on the show determined to connect with a new generation. I've learned you can do anything you set out to do if you give it the dedication you need to make it work. I've come this far and want to win that Golden Mask to prove that music is universal. It really isn't about age. That mask is mine! Slowing it down with I Can't Make You Love Me (BonnieRaitt), Bee is grace and class, infusing every bar and lyric with honey and goodness. The stage platform lifts into the air as Bee takes flight while the burning sunset glows in the background. This was a masterclass in perfection. Jennifer says Jennifer Bee's experience as a singer and performer are why she's in the Final 3. Nicole says you do everything in your own timing, you make each song new in your own way. Robin says you dig deep into your soul and provide hope and light at the end of the tunnel. Keenan Thompson says it was un-bee-GladysKightable. Jenny and Robin think it's obvious. Ken has strong convictions that it's Anita Baker. The audience disagrees loudly. Bee says I've always been a people person and love each and every one of you. As far as the judges are concerned, the respect takes it to a whole new level. Bee receives a standing O. Competition is fierce, she says, but so am I. My 17 grand kids and 10 great-grand kids will be so excited if I win. We're going have a party! Monster is the last to scare up a Final 3 performance. I never knew who I was until I put on the mask. It's given me freedom. I get to be who I want to be when I'm in the suit. This whole set has been the most amazing few weeks I've ever had in the last 12 years. Nobody would listen to me without this mask on, but now I can showcase my true talent without being judged for who people think I am. I've gone from hiding in a cave, Monster says, to being in the Finals. And now that I've made it this far, I want to take it all the way and win. I guess I've always been The Monster. And that's all right by me. I hope I've shown there can be beauty in anything, even if a little bit different. Thank you for giving me a shot. Singing This Is How We Do It by Montell Jordan, Monster gets his soul on in a house party groove, sounding amazing and moving his feet like he cannot stop, spinning around and revving up the audience. Jenny says she's totally blown away, falling in love with his talent, humor, emotion, and cheer. Kenan says it takes a lot to sing in a furry trashcan, doing Russian squat jumps, you bring a lot of heart to the show. Monster says it feels so good to be able to do what I love and do it freely. I've always wanted to perform without the fear of being judged besides the judges. But you guys treated me with the utmost respect and that's really hard to come by in the industry I'm in. Since I first burst into the scene, I've been in a dire need of a second chance and I think you guys gave it to me on The Masked Singer. Jennifer is crying over Monster's confession. She says they've been really lost with him from golfer to DJ to sportscaster. Robin says you can sense his physicality but voice is so soulful, maybe Jamie Foxx. Kenan guesses Tyrese Gibson. Maybe. Ken thinks Terrence Howard. Jenny thinks Tiger Woods. Monster says I'm pretty confident I'll be the last man standing, I want it more than anyone else and that's all the attitude you need. For the last time, the audience is voting to vote for their favorite performances. Either Peacock, Bee or Monster will win this competition and take home the Golden Mask, but within the next half hour, all three will be unmasked. Starting with the singer in 3rd place. The votes are in. The singer coming in 3rd place is... Bee! The audience groans and the panel is shocked. Nick bows down to the Bee. The panel makes their final guesses. Jennifer says it's hard to not know that voice. Robin says a voice from God. Kenan says it took me half a second to know who you were. Nicole says you started your career in the 50's. Robin says the Georgia Peaches. The panel is in agreement: Gladys Knight! Ken sticks with Anita Baker. The panel has made their final guesses, so Bee, show us all who is behind the mask. Take it off! Bee is... The legendary Gladys Knight! Hey, y'all, Gladys says. Nick says she's the first entertainer/superstar he ever met when he was just a kid in North Carolina and took the time to tell him how special he was and could make it. She gives him some sugar on the cheek. Robin gets jealous. Gladys says we should all strive to do different kinds of things because they elevate us eventually. Preach, Kenan says. The bee costume was difficult because you can't see nothing. The eyes are so important to see you guys here. Let me look at you and you and you. That's what gives me courage. Bee's mention of Grammys on stage referred to her 10 Grammy wins and 32 nominations. The baking references were a clue for her love of cooking and her published cookbook. Patti can't cook, she cracks, I taught her everything she knows. There were also multiple clues to popular song titles, including Superwoman and Midnight Train To Georgia. Kenan says as the resident black judge, you know good and well how heavy you are in the culture. That voice has graced my life, my parents' lives, and like every single family member I've ever had. It is unbelievable for me to be here to witness this. Thank you so much. For the first time unmasked, Gladys Knight sings on stage for a teary audience. It's all down to this as we reveal the winner of The Masked Singer. Will it be Peacock, the showbiz vet who wowed us all season with his fabulous energy? Or will it be Monster, who emerged from his cave for one big comeback? All the votes are in. But The Masked Singer can only have one winner. And that winner is... The winner of The Masked Singer is... Monster!!!!! Confetti and streamers come down onto the stage as Monster takes a winner's walk through the audience to a waiting area because before we can truly know Monster, we must first unmask the second place singer, Peacock. Jennifer thinks the vote was close. Robin sticks with Weird Al Yankovic. Jennifer says you are so talented and a perfectionist, Donnie Osmond or Neil Patrick Harris. Ken says it's a toss-up for me between those too. Nicole sticks with Jennifer and Ken. Kenan goes with Robin. The final guesses are in and after 8 weeks, it's time for Peacock to take his feathers off. It is time to find out who is behind Peacock's mask. Take it off! The Peacock is... Singer, Entertainer and TV superstar, Donnie Osmond! One of the greatest entertainers of our generation, Nick gushes, film, music, television, over 80m records sold, what would make you do a crazy show like this? Because it's fun, Donny says, this show was more fun than being Donny Osmond! Come on! Jenny and Donny have gone way back, she says he's such a professional. Donny says to keep the mystery up, he's been doing Vegas every night he's done The Masked Singer. The panel can't believe he's been leaving the show, jumping on a plane, and going to Vegas. Big clues were the wig, which he wore in Joseph And The Amazing Technicolor Dream Coat when Joseph gets thrown in jail. The clue "Your mom had a poster of me on her bedroom wall" referred to Donny being a teen idol in the 1970's. The Casino clues were a nod to Donny's long-running Vegas show, "Donny and Marie". Now, let's hear it one last time, for the first time unmasked, the amazing, Technicolor Donny Osmond! It's been a Monster of a season and after 8 weeks of electrifying performances, it is time to crown Monster as King of the The Masked Singer and wearer of the Golden Mask. Nick says he's so excited about this reveal, he's known this voice from the beginning. He writes his guess down on a piece of paper. But before we find out who is behind the mask, it's time for the detectives to weigh in. Jennifer says I can't take it anymore, he's been the hardest to figure out. Robin says the humor, the dance moves, the soulful voice, Jamie Foxx. Jennifer says the ups and downs and desire for a new image makes me think Michael Vick. What, asks Ken, Nicole and Kenan? Ken says he's calling an audible, Darius Rucker, rock to country to rock. Nicole says maybe Cee Lo Green. Kenan says happy feet makes him think of Martin Lawrence but also Tyrese Gibson. This is the moment. We need to know. Monster, show us all who is behind the mask of our champion? Take It Off! Monster is... Grammy Award-winning singer, songwriter and producer T-PAIN!!!!!!!! The panel is completely shocked and T-Pain dances around with his monster head cut off. You should be so proud of yourself, Nick says, your musical journey has been amazing. Some think you only have the skills to sing with auto-tune, I think you proved the world wrong on this show, on this stage, you are an amazing vocalist. It is my honor to present you with the trophy, the Golden Mask! You earned this! You are truly the king of The Masked Singer. Why would you do this? I didn't have a chance to come into the game with my natural voice and my peers who did got accepted and this helps me get my voice out there more. Robin says the soul you put down on the show was amazing. You really are incredible. Ken says this is what this show is about, someone who is not known for this getting to display his natural gifts. And winning, Jennifer adds! Kenan says nobody knew it was you, that's the beauty of this show, Holy Cheese. Monster's "winning awards" referred to his 2 Grammy wins and 13 nominations. Monster's mention of feeling ostracized from the game referred to the backlash he received from using auto-tune. The "Swing" clue referred to his well-known golf cart accident, which resulted in several missing teeth, also represented on Monster's costume. Ken asks Nick to show us his paper, I need proof. Nick shows them the paper, on which Nick had written, T-Pain. He knew as Monster started messing around with him and the microphone, that's Pain. Nick Cannon was the only one who guessed right. This brings the first season (but not the last) of The Masked Singer to a close, but not before we listen one last time to the artist formerly known as Monster, it's T-Pain!

All season, these 5 singers have fought to keep their identities a secret. Now with one week left to the Finale, the pressure is on. This is The Masked Singer! It's double the drama as two celebrities will be unmasked and Kenan Thompson joins the panel to help solve this musical mystery. Who will make it to the Finale? And who will be unmasked before your eyes? Please welcome your host, Nick Cannon! And please welcome your guessing game panelists, Robin Thicke, Jenny McCarthy, Ken Jeoung and Nicole Scherzinger! First up is Peacock, who is levitating in a therapist's office. Last week wasn't his best, he unloads to a security doctor using a lollipop pen. Last week Robin thought the song wasn't suited to my style. The thing is, I'm a perfectionist and I hate to let my little soldiers of perfection down. I pride myself being the brightest, most well rounded performer of the flock, so this week I'm going to give it everything I've got to be the idol they all deserve (practicing in the BY, blue stick figure on paper). I'm bringing an energy and heat to this song that will have you flying out of your seats. Tonight I'm making it all about you, my beloved PeaHeads, because after all, it had to be you. Singing Let's Go by Calvin Harris featuring Ne-Yo, Peacock struts the stage, all about attitude and disco defiance, working the audience, taking one lady for a spin. Kenan has opera spectacles and says Peacock destroyed it. Robin said perfect song, best yet, got down with the people. Jennifer says there's no doubt you are a showman. Peacock says I have dedicated my life to show business. This mask transforms me into another character. It's funny, because my partner would look at me and I'd be walking through the house (strutting like a peacock) like this and my partner would say, "Let it go, you're not a peacock at home." With the talent (Pushes Nick out of the way) - I'm sorry, I'm taking over here. Peacock continues: I've done this before. That is another hint for you. Robin, on one of my albums, I used Blurred Lines as an inspiration. It's not anybody we think it is, Robin realizes. I think we know each other, Nicole says. We do, Peacock confirms. Peacock tells us he's bringing his P game because he's in it to win it. Monster is in his cave. I never cared about the rules of the game until I became a player in this competition. I learned the hard way (Monster Life board game) that it takes just one slip to lose your place in the world. I've been vilified and persecuted (in downtown alley) for sounding like a ring tone, but it ain't me. Putting on a front made me angry (back at the board game, swipes a way a stack of burgers) and flips over the card table with the game) and after doing some soul searching, I was ready for something new. It's crazy (now on roof top) that having my identity stripped has brought me the comeback I've wanted for a decade. I've been hiding behind faster tracks until now - I'm finally ready to slow it down. Tonight, I'm putting everything I have into this song. I've come too far (back in cave) to take off this mask. Dressed in a suit, Monster sings Stay With Me by Sam Smith with a mic stand decorated in carnations. His vocal is raw, emotional (despite the fact Monster has no facial expressions) and has the audience spellbound with the unexpected performance turn. Nicole says his voice cut through his soul, spirit and heart, an honest, beautiful performance. Ken says you're the front-runner and I thought you were Kenan. Jennifer says your voice was so solid. Robin says comedy, a voice, that was a Grammy-worthy performance. Monster says I'm a father, husband, son, brother and more than anything, a person. Ken says he has to have an acting/comedy background. Jennifer says he's a DJ. Robin says if a DJ could sing like that, he'd stop being a DJ. Monster squats to the floor and Kenan realizes his feet are disappearing. Robin says he's got a lead singer's voice. Monster tells us the mask takes away his name but it's given him so much more. People aren't judging me for who I am but what I can actually do. Now I just want to stave them off and win this whole competition! Every time I put on this mask, Lion says, I transform in a way never expected, judged only as a singer for the first time. I'm just a lion (in a living room) who wants to be heard, not the child of my parents (Lion heads outside into what appears to be a southwest yard in front of the mountains. A newspaper called Hailey Times headlines "Gold Found In Hailey!!!"), not the empire I was born into. I was always expected to act the part, but I'm multi-dimensional (USC Trojan pennant waving off a cactus) and like a true Lioness, fiercely independent. Us girls, we run the world, and tonight you better hold on and keep guessing because this Lion mask ain't coming off any time soon. Singing Don't You Worry 'Bout A Thing by Stevie Wonder, Lion is got the Caribbean vibe going with a vocal that demonstrates dynamic runs, control, and even an upper octave. This is someone who knows how to sing, Jenny says, you brought your A game. Lion says I am an advocate, not a victim, even through I've been bullied a lot of my life. A daughter, a sister, I've had moments of insecurity, but being seen in a mask that completely changes everything that you thought you know, you just have to believe in yourself. Nicole thinks she's an actress who's a really talented singer. Robin says she moves and sings like she's been on stage before. Rabbit says throughout the competition, I've sung as many genres as possible to throw panel off my scent and to prove that I'm a versatile performer in my own right. But I also came to win. It's the semi-finals (walking in a backyard in a mountainous area) and there's 2 unmaskings so I need to perform twice as hard. When I'm under a lot of pressure, I pack up the entire family and head to the great outdoors (Rabbit in grassy camp ground). We hike through the mountains going step by step. And me and my dad go fishing for big fat tuna (making fire, toasting marshmallows )or chicken of the sea. Now after trashing the camp, I'm going to dig deep because I want to win this! Singing My Girl by The Temptations, Rabbit has the audience before he even starts singing but then his smooth, tender vocal amps up his game. In a surprise twist, he brings in Horse, Raven and Poodle as "his girls". Rabbit works the camera as Alien, Bee and Lion appear in the background. By the end, all the female characters are on the background screens. Jenny loves his little bow tie for some someone in a straight jacket. Nicole says not my favorite performance. Loved the sentiment but wanted more stage presence. Jenny says she's started to twitch at home. Kenan thinks he knows who it is - look at the calves. Nicole thinks boy band. Rabbit says he's very optimistic, always into something 110%, which is why he came out for this. I had to do some sort of character, so this is the character I did for this. Believe it or not, I have done solo work in a costume before in other places, so I'm used to being in it but never singing. Rabbit tells us he chose this song because he hadn't sung a ballad yet but the panel didn't love it. He just hopes he gets a shot to turn this around because this bunny ain't ready to show his face yet. The Bee is back. Some of the panel are convinced that I am the Queen of the Pips, but but what if I've been giving mixed message all this time? I want to tell my fans (in the kitchen) my recipe for success. You know I like baking and nobody makes a peach cobbler like mine. But after all these years of hit after hit, it's Grammy's voice I'm hoping will lead me to the Finals (Santa Fe model train engine). I'm surprised at how competitive I've become (making her pie) as an insect, but I'm really going for it now, so I'm serving up a powerful song by my good friend, Aretha Franklin. I'm hoping it will give me the sweet taste of victory. Singing (You Make Me Feel Like) A Natural Woman by Aretha Franklin, Bee is all grace and elegance as she stands in a soft fog center stage, belting out the classic anthem. Jenny says she's a living legend. Kenan says that is one of the most familiar voices in the history of music, a gift and a beautiful thing. Ken says it could be someone singing like someone else. Jenny says I thought for sure I was right and was wrong, so I have an open mind. Bee says I'm a people person. Behind this mask, it's difficult because I'm cut-off in a way from you, I need to see you, touch you, feel you and that's the way it is for me whether I'm performing or just walking down the street and saying, Heeey! That's who I am. Our Final 5 singers have now performed. It's now time for the biggest vote ever on The Masked Singer as the panel and studio audiences vote. The two celebrities with the least votes will be unmasked and sent home. The other 3 will face off at our Grand Finale, which means one of them will become the King or Queen of The Masked Singer! The votes are counted, and the first unmasked singer tonight is... Lion! Before Lion unmasks, Jenny says it is a true star, started off your career in a girl group, Kelly Rowan. Nicole says no, maybe a white Kelly Rowland based on the tone of her voice - Hailee Steinfeld! Dawn Robinson, guesses Ken, from In Vogue (En Vogue, Nick corrects for the umpteenth time). Kenan says you do you. I have no idea what's going on. But I'm thinking Kelly Rowland too. Robin says Michelle Williams. The panel has made its final guesses. We all need to know, Lion, show us who's behind the mask! Take It Off! Lion is... Actress & Singer Rumer Willis! Hollywood royalty, Nick says. The mention of being from Hollywood Royalty was a nod to Rumer's famous parents, Bruce Willis and Demi Moore. The Chicago mention in Lion's package referred to Rumer's 2015 Broadway debut as Roxie Hart in Chicago. Rumer says she knew how to dance but she wanted everyone to know she could sing too. Rumer says she grew up in Hailey, Idaho. The clue in "My Pride Has A Lot of Women" referred to Rumer's 4 sisters. Rumer says she's going to put "White Kelly Rowland" on he resume. Ken says from now on, Bruce Willis will be known as Lion's dad. Peacock, Monster, Rabbit and Bee are back on stage. Who will be the second to be unmasked tonight and who will move on to the Grand Finale? The second to be unmasked tonight is... Rabbit! That means Peacock, Monster and Bee have made it to the Finale and one of them will be the winner of The Masked Singer. But the question remains, who is Rabbit? Kenan says he thinks it's Nick Lachey because of the muscles. Ken says Kevin Richardson from Backstreet Boys. Robin says it's Joey Fatone. Nicole guesses it's Joey as well given the personality. Jenny says I think I'm being fooled and that's Donnie Wahlberg. She asks him to twitch for her one more time. BTW, honey, if it is you, it's Ken's fault you're leaving. Who do you think Rabbit is? Rabbit, show us all who's behind the mask. Take It Off! Rabbit is... Singer, Actor & Television Personality, Joey Fatone! What am I doing here, Joey Fatone asks? There's a Monster, a Bee, this is a crazy a## show. Nicole was very impressed with what he did with his character. Joey says he wanted to be a magician when he was younger, synchronized singing referred to his famous boy band, *NSYNC*, and the cooking clues were a nod to Joey's hot dog restaurants, Fat Ones. Joey says after his first song singing Living La Vida Loca, he couldn't get out of his mask fast enough; he's very claustrophobic, and this [experience] helped him overcome that. So did you guess Lion was Rumor Willis and Rabbit was Joey Fatone? With Peacock, Monster and Bee remaining, who do you think will win the Golden Mask? And who do you think the remaining singers are? We'll see you next week for the season finale of The Masked Singer!

We may have several HGs with names which start with the same letter. I've been tripped up not knowing if "B" is Bronte or Bridgette. To better help you identify the HGs, we made this guide you can print out and refer to until you get to know who's who. Download PDF And here's DRG's guide by team Cast Cards PDF. Try to be consistent with abbreviations, like: British Bedroom (UKBR) Tokyo Bedroom (TBR) Washroom Area (WA) Water Closet (WC) Kitchen Area (KA) Kitchen (KT) Dining Table (DT) Living Room (LR) Back Yard (BY) Bedroom (BR) Indoor Lock Down (ILD) Outdoor Lock Down (OLD) Head of House Room (HOHR) Storage Room (SR) When referring to Da'Vonne, you can use "Da," "Dav," and, of course, "Da'Vonne," but for some reason "Da' " with the apostrophe, jams my proofreader program, and "Day" is confusing, so use Dae. You are all encouraged to add info in your posts letting others know that you can only stay an hour, or, "I'm done, can someone else take over!" or whatever, so that lurkers, or "floaters" will be encouraged to fill the gaps.
