Don’t throw throughout the Robin Thicke towel* merely however — we’ve purchased a double shot of The Masked Singer to get by the use of sooner than we are going to uncover out which two celebrities have been unmasked on Wednesday.
The back-to-back episodes received right here courtesy of this yr’s World Assortment Sport 7, which preempted Fox’s surreal singing rivals ultimate week. Nonetheless why dwell before now? Let’s get on with recapping this week’s performances, which might be broken up by episode!
* Why, exactly, does assortment select Thicke have a monogrammed towel on the ready at all times? I’m genuinely curious.
ROTTWEILER | Is it merely me, or are the video packages serving up additional misdirects than they did in Season 1? “I’m in a position to succeeding alone, and I would like it meaning,” the massive canine knowledgeable us, seemingly wanting us to imagine he’s a former member of Backstreet Boys or an an identical boy band. Nonetheless when he sang “Love Runs Out” by OneRepublic, all I can hear is a former American Idol star coming by the use of clearly. (My guess: Chris Daughtry.)
LADYBUG | Given how the bug reacted to guage Ken Jeong’s suggestion that she is probably Lindsay Lohan, I’m going to exit on a limb and say she’s not Lindsay Lohan. Or probably she is? Consider, that suave little redhead did pull off a mum or dad entice once more throughout the day. Her sassy effectivity of Lizzo’s “Juice” was very good, though not terribly vocally sturdy. (My guess: ubiquitous talk-show host Kelly Osbourne.)
TREE | Tree’s effectivity of Aretha Franklin’s “Assume” leaves (get it?!) me with the sturdy impression that she’s a knowledgeable vocalist. Nonetheless her clues — along with the Indicate Girls shout-out “I’m not a day by day tree, I’m a cool tree” — make me pretty sure that she’s not. Nonetheless, I imagine it’s a misdirect (My guess: American Idol alum Jordin Sparks.)
PENGUIN | Penguin tossed out a lot of references to sitcom titles all through her pre-performance video, noting that “Making people giggle was on a regular basis my ticket to the model new adventures of outdated Penguin” and that “I in no way curbed my enthusiasm” for being throughout the spotlight. Nonetheless I’m pondering that these specific titles (The New Adventures of Earlier Christine and Curb Your Enthusiasm, in case you’re additional of an hour-long drama sort) are purple herrings, because of her weak rendition of Meghan Trainor’s “All About That Bass” truly makes me assume she is a sitcom actress… merely not one who was on these reveals. (My guess: Former View co-host Sherri Shepherd.)
FLOWER | LISTEN TO HER MAKE LOVE TO THOSE LAST NOTES OF SIA’S “CHEAP THRILLS” AND TELL ME THAT’S NOT PATTI LABELLE. (My guess: Patti LaBelle.)
FOX | I usually shock what watching this current would’ve been like sooner than Google. For instance, when Fox mentions that his bark was affected when he was rising up, and it made him self-conscious, I lazily typed “Wayne Brady” and “stutter” into my search bar and poof: I had my guess seemingly confirmed — even sooner than the furry man’s truly sturdy rendition of Panic! on the Disco’s “Hey Look Ma, I Made It” began. (My guess: Whose Line Is It Anyway‘s Wayne Brady.)
THE FIRST UNMASKING | The night’s first casualty was Penguin, who was unmasked and revealed to be Shepherd. (Study an exit interview alongside along with her proper right here.)
black-ish‘s Anthony Anderson joined Jeong, Thicke, Jenny McCarthy Wahlberg and Nicole Scherzinger on the judges’ panel for the second episode. Listed below are these performances:
BLACK WIDOW | We’ll get to the spider’s singing in a second, nevertheless can we communicate first about her bodily flexibility? Even alongside along with her arm in a sling, Black Widow was able to squat her little bug booty nearly to the underside — a strong feat. Her clues bundle deal included the Georgia flag and references to her as a “scorching homemaker,” and her effectivity of Cher’s “Think about” was sturdy. (My guess: Raven’s Dwelling star Raven-Symoné.)
THINGAMAJIG | This week, contestants launched out bodily clues to help the judges try and guess their identities. Nonetheless most of them — corresponding to Thingamajig’s American Sign Language dictionary — have been supremely unhelpful (which is why I’m not mentioning all of ’em). Nonetheless, his deal with The Temptations’ “Ain’t Too Proud to Beg” was a clear and pleasing as all of his prior performances have been. Nonetheless Scherzinger truly has to place off on the “my husband” stuff, no? (My guess: Indiana Pacers basketball participant Victor Oladipo.)
BUTTERFLY | By this stage, the winged one is completely my solely question mark. Though ultimate week I was happy she was Future’s Teen member Michelle Williams, the “Brit Award winner” and “Bleeding Love” mentions in her video set-up now make me assume that she is probably British pop singer Leona Lewis? And her effectivity of Norah Jones’ “Don’t Know Why” didn’t present any readability on that entrance. (My guess: Leona Lewis.)
LEOPARD | I do know loads of you assume Leopard is Pose star Billy Porter or Drag Race emcee RuPaul… and the current is conscious of that, too. Why else would they troll us with “Star Strikes a POSE” and “RU Gonna Go My Technique” headlines throughout the cat’s clue medley, given that it was so clearly pop singer Seal beneath that seen head performing Katy Perry’s “Teenage Dream”? (My guess: Seal.)
FLAMINGO | The two most pertinent takeaways from the pink hen’s look this week: She talked about “mira,” aka Spanish for “look,” in her pre-performance video; and her bodily merchandise was a Nationwide Affiliation for the Growth of Colored People Image Award… an identical to the one The Precise took home for Glorious Focus on Assortment earlier this yr. Oh, and he or she sang “In no way Ample” by Loren Allred. (My guess: The Precise co-host Adrienne Bailon.)
THE SECOND UNMASKING | The night’s closing casualty was Black Widow, who was unmasked and revealed to be Raven-Symoné — who performs Anderson’s on-screen sister on black-ish.
