Can you recognize your favorite celebrity just by their voice? You're about to find out. This is The Masked Singer! Last week, Raven had to take it off (Rikki Lake). Tonight, the six remaining celebrities fight for their place in the semi-final: Monster, Lion, Alien, Bee, Rabbit and Peacock. And comedian J.B. Smoove joins the panel. Who will live to sing again and who will be unmasked before your eyes? Please welcome your host, Nick Cannon! Between them, these six stars, Monster, Lion, Alien, Bee, Rabbit and Peackock, have 54 Grammy nominations, 41 Gold Records, have made 49 films and starred in 8 Broadway shows. But that doesn't change the fact that one of their famous faces will be unmasked tonight. And as always, we depend on the wit and wisdom of our lead detectives, our celebrity sleuths: Robin Thicke, Jenny McCarthy, Ken Jeong, Nicole Scherzinger, and J.B. Smoove! First up is Monster, who just might owe Nick money. Being here has given Monster a chance to share his true voice with the world, discovering a vulnerable side he never knew he had (Monster in bed with a security guard reading to him). When I was just a little monster growing up down south, I had to stay inside because it was too dangerous out. Eventually Monster discovered he had a gift and he was flying off and discovering the good life (Monster partying). I was even winning awards. But out of nowhere, people started saying I wasn't the real deal. It took me a long time to realize I couldn't let them make me a bad boy for life. So I came out from under the bed (Monster in closet) and decided to step back into the ring. My spot in the semi-finals is all Tee'd up to tonight, I'm coming out swinging and I hope the little monster in me will be proud. Singing I Love Rock'n'Roll by Joan Jett & the Blackhearts, Monster is geared up and ready to go with a southern rock vocal and a wandering choreography that brings him around onto stage. Ken and Nicole think he's a real singer as Monster nails the performance. J.B. says this Monster is a fabulous performer with one eye and two teeth. Nicole says he's stepping it up with runs and adlibs, made it his own. Robin says he's unpredictable, different styles of music each week, has to be professional. J.B. knows who it is - Mike Tyson. Ken says he's too amazing and charismatic to be an athlete. Robin thinks he's a comic. J.B. says those are the feet of a black man. Monster gives the panel a Moment of Truth: I was not on the show In Living Color, but my shoe size is 12. The panel is way off by miles and I'm going to be the last Monster standing. Now let's look at Lion. Into the Lions Den: Down the cabaret bars in Old Chicago, I hear whispers (B&W film nor, newspaper headline reads "God Found In Hailey!!!") and gossip as people seek me out but I like that they still can't say my name. Here in Hollywood, you can lose yourself in a famous family. It's not like the bluegrass state I've known (row of dominoes on a piano). (Blue Moon written on an envelope), I know I can't get too comfortable in the competition. It's scary. But with true grit and a diamond heart, I'll separate from the pack and build my own empire. The End. Singing Diamond Heart (Lady Gaga), Lion's mane shines with her animated motion, big pipes and prideful presence. Queen of the food chain, Lion has come to play, Ken says. No wonder she wants to go solo, Jennifer says. Jenny says she delivers every week, a true star. J.B. says you are golden and gaudy and I'd wear you as bling around my neck any time. Nicole says she has a soulful, country tone. J.B. brings Lion to her knees laughing. Now it's time for Lion's Moment of Truth: I have a subscription to a monthly murder mystery game. Ken guesses Angela Lansbury. Jennifer says she walks like a dancer. Next we deep dive Alien. During the last performance, I finally got the panel to recognize my voice and not just my body. Not winning now would be criminal and I know a thing or two about the law (Alien in law library). Welcome to Alien & Alien Associates: Have you been convicted of a crime against fashion? (Dog in floral clothes) Have you ever fallen off of a runway (Runway with models from Idan Cohen)? Whether you're from the boo (Malibu, Robin says) or the Moulin Rouge, (telephone) find s at 52.2 N, 57.66 E. We are <unkown> best law firm. All calls $19.56/min. Singing Ex's & Oh's by Elle King, Alien makes extraterrestrial sexy with sensuous moves and a breathless vocal. J.B. says take me to your leader. Nicole says your stepping up your game, some type of recording voice. Alien's Moment of Truth: I have been on the NY Times Best Seller List Twice. Now the singer with a voice like honey, Bee. So far on this show I've been singing today's hits. But now I'm going back to what I know best (men in pool doing synchronized swimming). A few of us queen Bees got our groove on back then (the men now in lounge chairs doing leg kicks). So which one am I, bringing a new attitude or a super woman. Am I proof we don't need another hero? (men now splashing in the pool) Am I giving you the best that I've got? Or do I buzz around a different bee hive? I'll let you figure that out while sing a sexy song from a very close friend. Singing What's Love Got To Do With It by Tina Turner, Bee tapping her foot as she delivers a dynamic vocal and waggles her wings. All J.B. can say is Wow. Ken wonders if Tina Turner is trying to throw them off by singing her own song. She ends with a music cut-out, and Nick and the panel bow down. Nicole says so commanding and powerful but with grace and ease, nobody does it like that today. Robin says she's obviously a living legend, who else can do Tina Turner. He thinks Bee is trying to throw them off with false clues. J.B. says nobody's grandma does this every day - Bee has a rep for being sexy. And yes, she has a stinger in back. Ms. Bee gives us a moment of truth. Robin asks if she's won a Grammy before. Actually, Bee says coyly, I have 10. Bee tells us she's not worried about the panel figuring it out. This Bee's buzzing through this competition. Examine every hare on this video of Rabbit. Nothing's been more satisfying than week after week showing off what I've got and standing out all on my own. Much of my career was spent in a herd (desert), others pulling my strings (Rabbit as a marionette). So it's nice to finally be (interacting with Muppets) the puppet master. I prepared for this since hanging tough in the Sunshine State (in a barn with hey and security dancing like cowboys). Being unmasked tonight would break my achy heart (Rabbit rips up some pink paper). The competition is cooking with some amazing singers(serves a plate of fried chicken). So now the puppet master turns ring master (amusement park) as I put my own twisted spin (carousel) on a lovely classic. Singing Isn't She Lovely by Stevie Wonder, the set is Circus Circus, complete with woman spinning on a knife board. The arrangement is up tempo and athletic, with Rabbit hopping around. Nicole says Boy Band for sure. She thinks she knows the voice. He ends in harmony with his background vocals. Ken tells J.B. to look for the twitch, and sure enough, Rabbit twitches to the right. Robin says you love soul, country and rock, this was a great amalgamation of all that. Jennifer says this is like buying tickets to a psychotic bunny concert. Dr. Smoove says he's blown away by this rabbit, like a futuristic strip club. It's time for a Moment of Truth: I have 17 tattoos on my body. Ken calls Nick Not-Steve-Harvey. Rabbit says I took a big risk with that song choice, but I hope my vocal chops impressed everyone enough to keep me here. I really want that trophy in my house. It's hard to be cocky on this show but Peacock knows how. I've been getting fan mail since I was a wee little peachick. After all, I started my career as a show biz prodigy (Peacock answers fan male next to a framed sign: Department of Youth) and it's led me down many different magical paths. I performed on stages, screens, hosted award shows, and I've accumulated fans all over the world, including knights, kings and queens. But the crazy thing is, those fans don't even know I'm here. I am more determined (The Big Yay on a greeting card) to outshine the rest of the singers. I want this so badly, I can't feel my face. Singing I Can't Feel My Face by The Weeknd, Peacock is on a Broadway-lit stage, strutting and grooving to the beat with style and practiced dance moves. Jennifer is sure it's Neal Patrick Harris, a prodigy born to be an entertainer. Robin says you make us laugh and smile. A smoother song doesn't let you be over the top where you're most comfortable, but it's always a great physical performance. J.B. stands up with his glass and says this is all a cult. To Peacock, he says your style, movement, mannerisms are fabulous and you have a background that should have a residency in Vegas somewhere. Ken and J.B. don't think it's NPH, as Peacock kind of glares at the panel at the suggestion. Peacock's moment of truth: My face has been tattooed on a person's body. It's now time for the audience and panel to vote. The artist with the least number of votes will be unmasked. The votes are all in. Bee, Alien, Lion, Monster, Peacock and Rabbit gather on stage. Tonight's Unmasked Singer is... Alien! That means Lion, Bee, Monster, Peacock and Rabbit move on into the Top 5 Semi-Finals. So, who do you think Alien is? We're about to find out! Who on earth is Alien? Jenny guesses Sophia Ritchie. Nicole says it is LaToya Jackson. Ken guesses Paula Abdul. Jennifer says you could be right, but you're wrong. J.B. says Carmen Electra. Robin agrees with Nicole on LaToya Jackson. Do you think they panel has figured it out? It is now time for Alien to show us who is behind the mask! It's superstar entertainer LaToya Jackson! Nicole and Robin are right! LaToya says being truly honest, the reason she did this was that people tend to pre-judge you and compare the way you sing to other people and your family, and I wanted to just be me and see how far I'd go. She used to own two snakes, Adam & Eve. Next week the Semi-Finals begin and two singers will be unmasked. But before we go, singing for the first time unmasked, make some noise for LaToya Jackson! Alien Clue Answers: The police badge referred to the badge La Toya earned while starring in the show "Armed And Famous". Nick is dancing behind LaToys as she reprises her song and when she twirls around, she bumps right into him. So how did you do this week? Did you predict Alien would be unmasked, and did you correctly guess it was LaToya Jackson? Will you be back next week for the Semi-Final double-unmasking?
