  1. 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!

  2. 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!
  3. 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?
  4. Can you recognize your favorite celebrity just from their voice? You're about to find out. This is The Masked Singer! Last week, Unicorn reached the end of her rainbow and was revealed to be Tori Spelling. Tonight, the Who Sungit continues as 4 celebs compete to stay anonymous: Bee, Peacock, Raven and Monster. Who will live to sing again and who will be unmasked? Please welcome your host, Nick Cannon, and your panel: Jenny McCarthy! Nicole Scherzinger! Robin Thicke! And Ken Jeong, who fresh off of being right for once, makes a royal entrance. Nick has to inform him that it is the artists who win the contest, not the panel. The four artists performing tonight come out for a group song, performing I Gotta Feeling by The Black Eyed Peas. Peacock starts by strutting his stuff. Monster comes out getting his groove on. Raven brandishes her wings and Bee sings sweet honey. It's time to go solo, starting with Bee. Bee has been performing for a long time, but dressing as an insect is a first. It was at her 8th birthday party that her mom gave her the idea to form a group. It was always in the cards. We got a record contract and her career has been all peaches and marmalade (pictures of a backyard birthday party with a girl holding up 2 fingers like horns). Being on the show (now waffles on the birthday table) is a trip singing songs others have written, makes me feel I'm every bee, you know, it's all in me. My song tonight is like a modern power ballad. I never thought I'd be singing it, especially dressed like this. Singing Wrecking Ball by Miley Cyrus, Bee's voice is more distinctive than ever, but which diva is it? The backup dancers are dressed like the King's Court, if that means anything. Her timing and hand gestures as well as huge voice suggest she is a seasoned professional, comfortable on stage. Robin says he got choked up, perfect song to be able to hit those high notes. He thinks he recognizes her stage persona. Nicole says her voice is mature, seasoned. Ken says reminds everyone he was correct last week and as he was the perfect judge, she's the perfect contestant. Show and Tell time. Bee's revealing item is copper bakeware. This is her second favorite thing to do. The panel tries to guess what the revealing item means. Ken thinks Baker could be part of her name. Bee just laughs off their guesses. Jennifer says she has to be a musical legend and she's dressed like a bee. Bee says she's no honey bee, she's a killer bee! Let's look for clues about Peacock. Being behind a mask has been strange and lonely. Can't even talk to the crew because he has to remain anonymous. Without the mask, he would be easily recognizable (sitting in an empty bar), but here I'm invisible, as if my entire career just disappeared into thin air. By day, I perform as my 176lb real self (dressed like a matador with a rainbow cape) but at night I ride into competition masked and ready for battle. Winning would be everything to me, so I'm going to step up my game and give the world all of me. Singing All Of Me by John Legend, his voice does sound a bit like David Hasselhoff. Nicole says his voice is mature. He uses the stage for his choreography, working the audience and the camera. He can sing, Jenny says during the chorus. Ken says greatest showman of all. Jennifer says he keeps bringing it each week and she knows who he is. Nicole has no idea but she loves his voice, a seasoned, Broadway type of voice. Robin agrees, a seasoned performer, maybe Broadway. Nick ducks behind Peacock's features and says "they may be on to me" as if he was Peacock. When the rainbow flag is mentioned, Peacock raises his arms in celebration. Jenny says he's been doing this since very young. Robin points out he always ends his performances in dramatic poses. Ken says he has a non-cocky confidence, always ending strong. Peacock agrees that he and Ken are birds of a feather. It is time for security to reveal the revealing item. It's a wig. Because of this wig, Peacock says, I was thrown in jail. Ken thinks he was arrested by the fashion police. Jenny says showman, Vegas style. Jennifer also thinks there is a Vegas connection, he's sung differently each performance. I gave all of me on All of Me, Peacock tells us. I'm going to win and you're not going to guess who I am. Raven is next. Being in the comp has challenged her to go against basic instincts, especially going silent after a career talking to people. But being alone (on a roof with an inflatable kiddie pool) with my thoughts gives me a chance to reflect on my own story, looking back on my life with a birds-eye view. From death to love, to birthing you, (Peacock holes an alarm clock with 11:11 taped to the front). My greatest joy is being a mother to my flock. You might say that's so me it's not just talk. Sometimes you have to look back to go forward. And tonight, I'm singing with the courage gained from being here and I never want it to end. Singing Brave by Sara Bareilles, Raven is singing as if reciting a mantra, breaking out into an anthem chorus. Not a dancer, Ken thinks there's something "actory" about her. Jenny says she has a talk show. She lets out a huge, long power note, then does it again, sending Nicole into a fit. She fist pumps with the audience. Ken says great heart. Nicole says not a professional singer but you went for those notes, very powerful. Jennifer says she's proud of how she performed. Time to see what Raven brought from her nest. It's an Emmy Award! That gets Jenny's attention. The panel tries to figure out if she's on The Talk or The View. Raven says she places this where her flock can admire it. The panel begins discussing whether Raven is strapping down her breast to fool them. Raven tells us she's a very social person and keeping a secret is so hard. Monster scares up some clues. The panel's love last time went a long way towards healing a deep wound for Monster. But like everyone else, had a share of dark days (Monster walking down a dark alley) but I'm a fighter and fought my demons (now in a bar with a teddy bear among the liquor bottles) and I discovered what a teddy bear I am at heart. (outside in front of a drive-in theater with a pink Cadillac) This experience is more far more meaningful than wearing a monster costume (throwing cash), it's about being proud of who I am (Level Completed, switch to a sound board, then electrical flashes to a cave). Don't even think about slinging any negativity my way, cause I'll just swing back. (Back into the bar) tonight's performance is about throwing the panel off the scent. No one would expect me to sing this! (Game Over) Game On (back to the cave)! Rockin' to American Woman (Lenny Kravitz), Monster is wearing a leather jacket as he blows the roof off with his performance. He sounds amazing, screams Nicole. He's no athlete, Ken says. Everyone is dancing except Monster, who then breaks into some fancy footwork that turns the dial up to 11. Robin says he's very athletic, as Monster kneels down, his feet disappearing under his outer skin. He turns around to end the song and his jacket says American Monster on the back. He does the Backpack Kid dance to the audience applause. Robin says I didn't think he was a singer before but he finished riffs with vocal dynamics, he's a professional entertainer. Ken says he does the riffs very well, a comedian who is classically trained at least as an actor. Robin hears soulfulness, says "lil". Jenny says the microphone he carries reminds him of a golf club. Monster brought a revealing item out from under his bed: A headset! Monster says he makes his best calls on this headset. A sportscaster, Jenny says. That's not Howard Cosell, Ken jokes, no one on ESPN or Fox Sports moves like that. Nick says it's someone he knows because he keeps picking on him (Monster tries to poke him with his mic). Jenny says we've been confused since Day one but I don't want you to ever be demasked! It's time for the audience and Panel to vote on who was the weakest performer tonight. Let's give it up for Bee, Peacock, Raven and Monster! Please vote now for your favorite. The votes are in and tonight's unmasked singer is... Raven! But she did an amazing job. Give her your applause and say goodbye to Bee, Monster and Peacock who will be back to sing again. Ken thinks it is Sheryl Underwood from The Talk and places his crown on the line. Nicole thinks it is Megan McCain from The View. Robin thinks Ricki Lake. Jennifer thinks Raven Symone. Ken says he's keeping his title. Nick says we all need to know. Now let's see if any on the panel was right. It is now time for Raven to show who is behind the mask. Raven is... Emmy Award talk show host Ricki Lake! Ken begrudgingly passes his crown to Robin. Nick says we've seen you in movies, win Emmys for your talk show hosting abilities. Ricki says she loved the anonymity, she's usually so bad at keeping a secret and she didn't even tell her family what she's doing. It's been a ball. Raven is about metamorphosis, about death but then rebirth. I went though the loss of my husband last year and this really was an opportunity to share my journey. He was the best thing to happen to me. Well he's smiling tonight, Nick says. Robin says when she performed, she put her hand over her heart, something she'd do on her show. Ricki is upset that's a dead giveaway. He grew up watching her show. I'm turning 50 this year, she says. Singing for us again, this time unmasked, here's Ricki Lake! Raven Clue Answers: The mention of the Hudson River was a clue for Ricki's hometown, Hastings-On-Hudson, NY. The Man Who Came To Town was John Waters, whose classic film Hairspray launched Ricki's career. Did you guess who Raven was? What do you think of the Final Six performers? Who do you think will be the last to be unmasked?
  5. Can you recognize your favorite celebrity just by their voice? You're about to find out. This is the Masked Singer! Each week celebrities perform under cover, leaving the panelists and you at home guessing, who is behind the mask! Each week, one performer is eliminated and their identify revealed. Last week, the Pineapple had to take it off. Tonight, 5 celebrities compete to stay anonymous: Lion, Deer, Peacock, Unicorn and Monster. And tonight, guest judge Joel McHale joins the panel. Who will live to sing again, and who will be unmasked before your eyes? Your host Nick Cannon welcomes you to the Masked Singer and introduces your 5 performers: Lion, Deer, Peacock, Unicorn and Monster. Tonight, the weakest performer will be unmasked and sent packing. Please welcome your panel: Robin Thicke, Jenny McCarthy, Ken Jeong and Nicole Scherzinger. And tonight, guest panelist Joel McHale! Lion always wanted to sing but the anonymity of the mask has made her courageous. #Pride, #NoCircusLions, #CageFree. Using my voice to help others has always been important. #Love, #Oneless, #EnoughIsEnough I tell my pride you have to be strong and stand up for what you believe in. Gold Found In Hailey!!! Singing Feeling Good by Nina Simone, Lion delivers a vocal no stranger to performance, ruling the stage with royal authority. She's a full-on singer, says Jenny. A second standing ovation, Nicole says she's got balls for singing that song, a commanding presence. Jenny says obvious she's professionally trained. Joel says a huge sexy belt buckle. Ken says this is not about him. Robin says she's seasoned, older. Nicole says not professional singer. Jenny asks if she has a platinum album. I have nothing gold or platinum on my walls, Lion says. Yet. Deer used to be able to sell salt to a slug. Dear's Used Cars Commercial: Roll 3, Scene 19, Take #50, Security #1, 6/18. Come on down to Deer Used Car Lot. Deer calls himself moose, donkey, but promises to throw himself hoof first into the competition and trust him, he knows how to throw (paper airplanes and other stuff.). Singing Get Your Shine On by Florida Georgia Line, Deer goes country, stationary at the top of a platform. His vocal is slow and plodding. Robin says he's getting a Texas, cowboy drawl. He uses a lot of light, smoke and a dance team below him to deflect from his lack of movement. Deer is escorted (on both sides) down the platform. No knees left, Joel says. Nicole says he sounded good singing country, maybe an athlete. Jenny says older and Deer drops his mic. Ken says not a professional singer but definitely game. Joel says the comedy police are coming. Robin says famous enough for commercials and trophies. Deer says he has multiple world titles, started in track & field then went to horses. Peacock felt like he was 5yrs old again performing on stage. His career has had so many incarnations and everyone thinks they know him. I started out as a little teenybopper (snaps fingers in a cargo elevator), but there's more than meets the eye. He signs an autograph. Then I was cast in some dramatic role. And has a terrible fear of heights. Singing Counting Stars by OneRepublic atop a 30' high pedestal, his voice as a deep country flavor. Jenny thinks Broadway, younger. Ken says Peacock Elvis. He has strong dance moves after he descends to stage level, working the audience with practiced choreography. Nicole says he's a showman. The audience chants his name. Ken calls him a front-runner. Nicole says electrifying, a natural-born performer. Joel says greatest performance he's seen by a peacock. Robin says he's a musical showman, comedic timing, maybe hosted an awards show. Magician. Nicole says an actor with stage background. Jenny thinks he's performed in Vegas, maybe an older celebrity. Peacock says he has performed in Las Vegas. You were born to be on stage, Nicole says. For years, Unicorn was lacking confidence because she lost her sheen, but she was flying high during her first performance. Came to conquer fear of singing and being judged. This week will exude model behavior, feeling victorious, and going for the gold. No one can crush this unicorn's spirit again. Singing Oops! I Did It Again (Britney Spears), gives a sultry vocal, not exciting but it gets the panel dancing. Nicole thinks she was a gymnast. Jenny says we can all relate to being insecure but I almost pooped a rainbow with your performance. Robin says it was great to your alternative personality shine. Nicole picked up on the gold thing. Robin points out she has heels that make her look taller. Unicorn says she is known for being a gymnast in the bedroom. She definitely knows Charlie Sheen then, Robin jokes. Monster reset after nearly being unmasked after his first performance, taking a drive up from the south in his Cadillac to New York City, then out west. From behind this mask, I can show the world my true self. Shooting money out of his hands, he's back in the swing of things and celebrating getting my mind right. Tonight will be completely unexpected, showing off the whole package. It's gonna be fire! Singing I Don't Want To Be by Gavin DeGraw, Ken says he may not be a professional but he can sing. He exhibits some power vocals and while he cannot move much in his outfit, he does move around, even throwing up a high note to get the panel's attention. Joel says this is the weirdest show on television, but you can really sing. Robin says he went for a big mountain top note at the end. Nicole says he's a singer. Robin pointed that Monster said Caddy, not Cadillac. Monster says he likes to keep his head in the game. Robin thinks he's an athlete. Nicole says a physical comedian. Five performers but only four will move on in the competition. Monster, Peacock, Lion, Deer and Unicorn. One will be unmasked and sent packing tonight. The Studio Audience and Panel will now vote for their favorite performer. There was only a 2% difference between the bottom two singers. Tonight, our masked singer who must take it off is... The Deer! Monster, Peacock, Unicorn and Lion are safe. It is time to unmask Deer. Robin thinks it is Terry Bradshaw because of how his shoulders move when he laughs. Nicole agrees. Jenny says Peyton Manning. Joel says he has the knees of a former NFL player, and he's going with Terry Bradshaw. Ken says it is John Elway. Deer, show us who is behind the mask. The Deer is... 2x Superbowl MVP and Sportscaster Terry Bradshaw! Terry Bradshaw says this is so fun but so stressful, thank you for voting me off! He's actually put out a couple singing albums, including a Christmas album. Joel asks him to wear the Deer outfit on Fox NFL Sunday. So did you guess Terry Bradshaw? Deer's commercial-themed package was a clue for Terry's off-season career as a car salesman. "I Love Horses" referred to the world champion quarter horses Terry breeds on his ranch. So far, Hippo, Pineapple and Deer have all been revealed. Do you think you know who Unicorn, Lion, Monster and Peacock are?
  6. TV's wildest singing show is here. Can you recognize your favorite celebrity just from their voice? You're about to find out. This is The Masked Singer! 12 Celebrities are about to compete with one big twist - they are all disguised from head to to in costumes, their identity hidden in all times on and off stage, their voices distorted in interviews. It'll be TV's Best Kept Secret. Who is behind the mask? Each week, the celebrities will sing to impress the panel and studio audience. The weakest performer each night is eliminated and unmasked before your eyes. Tonight, 6 singers face off: Peacock vs. Hippo, Monster vs. Unicorn, and Deer vs. Lion. At the end of the night, the first famous face is revealed. Get ready to play the wildest guessing game on TV with Morty's TV! Host Nick Cannon welcomes us to our new roles as detectives in a musical mystery. It's not a whodunnit but a whosungit. Welcome to our celebrity panel with Robin Thicke, Jenny McCarthy, Ken Jeong and Nicole Scherzinger! Time for our first ever face off - enter the Peacock with their plumes! And the hungry, hungry Hippo! Peacock struts across the stage as Hippo shows off some hip-hop dance moves. Peacock opens with some clues from their childhood - card tricks, piano, took the stage at age 5, good friends with Michael Jackson. It's never too late for this showman to make a comeback, it says. When the performance begins, it's a male voice, deep and dramatic. The judges think they know the voice, singing The Greatest Show (The Greatest Showman). The judges address the Peacock. Nicole says his voice was like butter. Robin thinks he's a trained performer. Ken says it's definitely a woman and he loves her plumes. Jenny guesses the obvious, Hugh Jackman. They seem to think a comedian or magician from Vegas. Peacock says he's never been mauled by a tiger but has been part of a magic act. Next up is Hippo, who calls itself a competitor, has performed before thousands of fans, has game and dances after wins. Singing My Perrogotive (Bobby Brown), the judges quickly say he's not a professional singer. Robin says he moves his legs like he's under 30. Nicole says Hippo worked the audience well. Robin says he was singing over the other vocals. Ken says he's a charismatic athlete. Nicole says he was a baller, maybe someone whose made an album before. Hippo says his favorite pasttime is Bowling. The audience now gets to vote on in-house devices, with the winner moving on to the next round and the loser possibly being revealed at the end of the show. Team Hippo or Team Peacock? The results are in and the winner of our first face-off is... Peacock! Next up is Monster vs. Unicorn. Monster says that's what the world labeled it, mentioning mix tape, was at the top of its game but the game turned on it and it retreated from the public light. Performing Don't Stop Me Now (Queen), he's got a deep, strong vocal. Jenny thinks he sounds like Chris Brown. Ken thinks he's a professional singer. Robin says his voice was full, mature. Nicole wants to squeeze Monster and says he has range and soul. Monster says not everyone thinks he's a professional singer. Unicorn says it's childhood should have been magical, growing up in a rich neighborhood, dreaming of singing. But a mentor said they were tone deaf and all its life, it's been told it wasn't worthy. Unicorn isn't listening to them any longer to show the next generation of unicorns the truth comes from within. Singing Fight Song (Rachel Platten), her voice is light and airy, confident. Robin does not think she's a trained singer. Robin thinks maybe someone famous for being famous. Nicole says she's spiritual and one of a kind. Unicorn says they call her bird and she giggles when compared to Larry Bird. The audience is voting and the results are in. Unicorn wins the face-off, placing Monster in the Bottom 3. The final face-off tonight is Deer vs. Lion. Deer is incredibly competitive, always wanted to be a singer but people couldn't get over who he was. Been knocked down many times but in the wild wild west, you get back in the saddle. With antlers taped up and a face laced up, Deer warns ravens to beware, it's here to win. Singing Thunder (Imagine Dragons), McCarthy thinks Deer sounds familiar and Nicole says he's not a singer. He doesn't move around the stage much. Nicole says he gives off warrior vibes. Robin says an athlete or wrestler. Deer says he loves horses, so Nicole guesses jockey. Ken says maybe a team with a horse. Robin guesses Denver Bronco. It's Lion's time to roar without any preconceived notions of who they are. Hollywood royalty now standing on their own, stepping away from their pride to sing their heart out. True strength comes from embracing your vulnerabilities, showing their true self for the first time from behind the mask. Singing A Little Party Never Killed Nobody (Fergie Featuring Q-Tip, Goonrock), Lion's voice is big and full of attitude. She struts the stage like it's her pride land and Ken thinks it's the most famous contestant they've had. That's all right to me, Robin says, her posture was perfect, she shook her hips in time with the music, that's a well trained professional. Jenny says she's unmistakably a professional musical artist. Robin he's intrigued by the Hollywood Royalty - she could be a model first. Jenny thinks a girl group. Lion says in her pride, there are lots of women. Jenny says Pussycat Dolls but Nicole says she'd know if someone in her group. Robin thinks 5th Harmony but no way Destiny's Child. The audience votes between Deer and Lion and the winner of the face-off is... Lion! That means either Deer, Monster or Hippo will be unmasked, with the other two remaining in the contest. Who do you it will be? Hippo, Deer and Monster have lost their face-offs and the won with the least vote from the panel will be unmasked. The first unmasked singer is... The first singer to be unmasked is... Hippo! That means Deer and Monster are still in the competition. Now it's time to solve our first who-sung-it mystery. Nicole thinks he's Alan Iverson. Ken says Neon Deion Sanders. Jenny agrees with Ken. Robin says no way - it's Odell Beckham Jr. The panel has made their guesses, now it's time for you to make yours. Who is the Hippo? The time has come to find out the identity of our first ever masked singer. Show us who's behind the mask? It's NFL Steelers Wide Receiver Antonio Brown! Did you guess that the $10,000 bill in the clue was for the $10,000 fine that Antonio Brown received for dancing with the end zone? His favorite pasttime being bowling was a play on having been in the Superbowl and 5 Pro Bowls. Brown is also known for eating large breakfasts, hence the plate of pancakes.

Welcome back home to the place where superstars are board, this time with an all new powerhouse panel leading the charge: Lionel Ritchie! Katy Perry! And Luke Bryan! And returning as your host, Ryan Seacrest! This is American Idol! New York's Madison Square Garden. The first to audition is 17yr old Catie Turner from Langhorne, PA, who makes people tense just to be in her presence. Idol obsessed forever, she sings an original song about her disillusionment with the media. Katie calls her a spectacular songwriter. Luke says she's interesting and brilliant beyond her years. Lionel compares her to the wonderment of seeing a Martian land. Luke says yes. Lionel says Yes for his first time out. Katie calls her fresh and necessary. Yes, she's going to Hollywood! Ron Bultongez escaped from the Congo when he was 10 years old and was last in NYC when he emigrated. Growing up with an abusive father, he was thrown out of his own home as a teenager. Now living in Plano, TX and a father himself, he's here for his new son and the live he wants to build for his family. He sings Let It Go by James Bay. Playing the guitar, his vocal is deeply soulful and dripping with the emotion of a lifetime of experience in just 21 yrs of living. Luke says there's something inspiring about you, your demeanor and honesty is exciting. Katy says she doesn't know he is yet. Lionel wonders if it's too soon. Luke says he's unpolished but Yes. Katy says no. Lionel says come back with your identify. An hour later, Lionel is having regrets and asks production to bring Ron back. He announces he's changing his vote to a Yes and welcomes him to Hollywood, handing him a golden ticket! Ron holds back the tears in disbelief. Ron from the Congo, Luke jokes, you con't go wrong. 19 year old Maddie Poppe from Clarksville, IA sings Rainbow Connection by Kermit The Frog and the judges are enthralled. You have a storyteller voice, Lionel says. Katy says you have your own dope distinctive quality to your voice. Luke says I'm just saying yes. You got my vote, says Lionel. You're going to Hollywood! Kobee is a 26yr old musical theater actress from Denver, CO where she appeared in The Producers. Prepared as she'll ever be, she sings an original song with a powerhouse vocal that could be heard in New Jersey. Katy says this is not how we listen to music. Don't judge me, Kobee says. You're not a pop star, Katy says. Lionel says this is the music business, that voice is not going to work on records. Luke says you are doing a disservice going down this route. It's three no's. In Broadway, she could be a success, Luke says. Nashville, TN. When age 11, the next singer rendered possibly the worst version of the National Anthem. Now 16 years old, Harper Grace from McKinney, TX created a Dream Board which included trying out for AI (and maybe winning). Singing an original, if this clip goes viral, it'll be for a complete different reason. Katy says that's a well written song. The other judges like the details too. Luke asks for another song and she sings Young, Dumb and Broke by Khalid. You have a great voice, Luke says. I love the quality in your voice, Lionel says. Katy says your voice hasn't seen it's ultimate potential. She takes Harper's Dream Board and crosses out "tryout for AI" and adds "Going To Hollywood!" The next contestant drove in from Marion, KY to Nashville. Layla Spring, age 16, is shadowed by her 7yr old adoring sister all the way into the audition room. The two sisters first sing together, mostly Dyxie (too young to enter, though she gets 3 Yes's). Valid 2026, Katy writes on her Golden Ticket as her eyes are wide open with excitement. Now it is Layla's turn, calling Lionel so wise. She sings Who's Loving You by The Jackson Five. She has a good voice, Luke says. Katy says you have something and could use all the experience going to Hollywood would bring. Lionel says this is not a business about cute; I don't want to destroy you with this opportunity. You're going into the fire. Lionel: Yes. Katy: Yes. Luke: You're Going To Hollywood! 19yr old Benjamin Ingles from Enid, OK thought being a cashier would be a great opportunity to pick up girls and has written songs about girls he had crushes on but never sang them. Socially awkward, he's never kissed a girl because he's never been in a relationship. Katy decides to change that. With Luke taking the selfie, he gives her a peck on the cheek. Katy complains he didn't even make a smootch sound. When Benjamin comes in for a second time, she turns at the last second and plants one on his lips. He falls to the ground in surprise. As Lionel and Luke yuk it up, Benjamin says that's a first. Ever the gentleman, he asks her, how was it? Benjamin asks for some water, his mouth gone dry as Lionel says that's a big deal, your first kiss was Katy Perry. That's going up on the fridge, Benjamin says. After performing, Luke says he needs to hone his craft more. Katy says she enjoyed him today but there are others out-singing him right now. Lionel said he already won everything today but just needs to practice and come back in 2 years and kiss a couple more girls. Los Angeles where Lionel can find his Star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. So can Ryan Seacrest. But not Katy or Luke. They create a group chat called The Judgementals. Niko Bones is hungover as if he just came from his previous night's gig. Playing in a rock'n'roll band, he carries his own amp into the audition and sings the nursery rhyme Worms rock-style, complete with burps & reverb. I think you're dope, Katy says. Lionel says I'm glad you stopped that song when you did. Luke says want to hang out, chug some beer and make some bad decisions, I'm a yes. But for American Idol, it's a no. Keep Rock'n'Roll alive, Niko says in parting. In total contrast, 18yr old Nursing freshman Noah Davis from Royal, AK establishes a one word connection with Katy. His American Dream is owning an Alpaca. Or two. Singing Stay by Ariana and playing the piano, his voice is buttery and he has the rapt attention of all three judges, going as far as dropping Katy's jaw. All three judges get up to hug Noah. Wig, Katy whispers, snatched. Flow. Out the door. I don't know what that means, Luke says, but you're going to Hollywood! If you want an Alpaca, Lionel says, you can have an Alpaca. The AI Bus heads to Disney Springs at Walt Disney World with Jordin Sparks, Rubben Studdard and Chris Allen join Mickey and Minnie Mouse to help with the search for then next American Idol. Alyssa Raghu, 15 and from Orlando, is a huge Disney fan and her father has been behind her singing journey every step of the way. Singing Almost Is Never Enough by Ariana Grande & Nathan Sykes. She puts down her guitar and begins to sing dreamily, bringing smiles and high 5's from the judges. Sounding that good at 15, Katy says, you've voice is still going to grow. My full body felt what you were singing. I'm a believer. You're so easy on the ears, Luke says. Top 10, Katy says. This shouldn't happen at 15yrs Lionel says and I'm excited to see where you're going to go. You're going to Hollywood! 26yr old Sador Milano is well known in Moscow, where he won a singing competition in 2015, but he's in Orlando for a new style of music. He has a wide range, and can sing both male and female parts, idoling Freddie Mercury and Jackson Five. He sings Before I Ever Met You (Banks). The audition is kid of all over the place and the judges don't quite know what to make of it. Katy passes it to Luke, who tells Mr. Ritchie he's up. Silence. Umm... Sador can't can't find the door out at first. He tells his parents the judges told him now and maybe to try out for Broadway. 16yr old Zach Denofrio from Florida doesn't have much experience singing (less than a year), his voice a little high pitched, and he has socks for every day of the year, giving Ryan a pair of Red White & Blue for his own sockless feet. He gives the judges sock gifts as well. He sings The Way You Look Tonight by Frank Sinatra. His voice comes out in a deep, rich baritone, shocking the judges. Katy gets up to dance with Zach as he sings but the boy doesn't miss a beat (or a note). As mom's ear is pressed to the door, Katy has Zach dip her. Luke asks if that's really his speaking voice. Show him how to be a man, Katy teases Luke. Zach starts singing again. Luke says he has Sinatra down but Sinatra waited off the beat a little bit. You had me at kitten socks, Katy says, your speaking voice will change - something's already dropped. Did we miss something while you were dancing, asked Luke? You killed it, Lionel says, you're going to Hollywood! 15yr old Grace Walker is a from San Juan Capistrano, CA is the first in a series of No's at the end of the show. If they're not ready, Lionel says, don't let them go. Give them time to find out who they are. Failure cannot happen at 15/16/17 - you're just learning, they tell contestants. With the tears flowing, singers express hope for the future. Dennis Lorenzo started in music at 16, dealing with some rough family stuff, and music healed me. From West Philly, PA, his father was murdered when he was 5 and we was going down the wrong path in life. Then his grandparents bought him a guitar at age 16 and he's been playing and singing ever since. He bought a one-way ticket to LA and was sleeping on the streets. He got his first job, a girlfriend, a beautiful baby girl, and now he's stepping up to support his family. Singing Unaware by Allen Stone, both his guitar and vocal are soft spoken and easy listening, a dynamic range, a quiet, confident power. Lionel says I'm smiling, that was refreshing. You delivered all my check boxes. Katy says we don't have to convince ourselves that sounds good. It does. Luke asks how long he's had that guitar - it has a hole in it. You just took a guitar with a hole in it and just 3 chords and gave it all the soul it needed. It ain't the equipment, Lionel says, it's what you use it for. This feeling is what I signed up for, Luke says. American dreams. I'm a fired up yes. Heck yes, says Katy. I'm standing up screaming and hollerin', says Lionel, you're going to Hollywood!
