“The Masked Singer” Recap – (11/13)

“The Masked Singer” Recap – (11/13)

It’s getting down to the wire on “The Masked Singer,” Fox’s hit celebrity singing competition show. Hosted by Nick Cannon, a new crop stars are competing head-to-head in song in front of a live studio audience and a panel of celebrity judges: Robin Thicke, Jenny McCarthy, Ken Jeong and Nicole Scherzinger.

The thing is, the contestants are hidden in elaborate costumes – this week, the Fox, Ladybug, Flower, Skeleton, Three, and Rottweiler faced off. Last week, there was a double unmasking that revealed the Penguin to be Sherri Shepherd and the Black Widow to be Raven-Symone. Who will be unmasked next? Here’s what happened on last night’s episode:

  • First up was Fox, bustin’ out some more of his signature move for a cover of “Every Little Step” by Bobby Brown. He also spilled a few more clues, including a boombox, and hinting that his father gave him a gift that helped him find his voice. The judges were still convinced he could be Jamie Foxx, but Sterling K Brown and AJ McLean were also thrown around. Clue Review: Male, great voice and dance moves, natural performer, relation to boombox, father gave him a gift, has lived two different lives – one of them being a superhero, he does his best work at night.

  • Next, Ladybug hit the stage, getting the crowd rocking with a rendition of “Youngblood” by 5 Seconds Of Summer. As for her clues, Ladybug hinted at family drama again, and revealed that she used to let her “insecurities” get in her way… and she also revealed a connection to makeup. Ken was still convinced, to the Ladybug’s dismay, that she’s Lindsay Lohan, and Jenny threw in Paris Jackson. Clue Review: Female, good voice, might be hiding an accent, got a “best host” trophy, born into a famous family that’s dealt with a lot of drama, used to being dogged by the media, connection to makeup… and doesn’t like being compared to Lindsay Lohan.

  • Then Flower did her thing – and while she brought up “Dreamgirls” in her clue package, she didn’t sing a song from the flick. Instead, she performed “Amazed” by Lonestar, bringing Nicole and the whole audience to tears with her beautiful (and almost unmistakable) voice. Ken guessed Bjork again, and Robin went with Patti Labelle. Flower’s final clue was a deck of cards, saying, “it’s not about the hand you’re dealt, it’s about the way you play it.” Clue Review: Female, killer pipes, can hit the high notes but has never had a vocal listen, has her finger in many pies, knows how to play the hand she’s dealt, loves makeup, relation to “Empire,” “Dreamgirls” and “What’s Love Got To Do With It?”

  • Then it was time for Tree, who got the audience on their feet with a fun rendition of “No Excuses” by Meghan Trainor. It’s clear she’s a powerhouse, and she could be a Broadway star according to her latest clue, a playbill. Jenny was thinking she could be Molly Shannon, and Nicole guessed Amy Sedaris because of a “Strangers With Candy” reference. Clue Review: Female, strong voice that can reach some high notes, it’s not her first live performances, references to cooking, being on TV, the movie “Mean Girls,” jazz music and the holidays.

  • Finally, Rottweiler closed out the show. Before launching into a passionate rendition of “Castle On A Hill” by Ed Sheeran, he gave up some more clues. That included a North Carolina flag and that he didn’t take the “contentional route to stardom.” The judges were thinking he could be Gavin DeGraw, Darren Criss, or even James Franco. Clue Review: Male, relation to “Friday Night Lights” but maybe not an athlete, great voice, has experience performing, can rock some choreography, reps North Carolina, childhood heroes were Bruce Lee and Boyz II Men.

Then, it was time for the unmasking. Ladybug ended up being dubbed the weakest link, so she got the boot. Turns out Ken was banking on the wrong celeb, because Ladybug was revealed to be… Kelly Osbourne! Of course, “The Osbournes” are infamous for their drama thanks in part to their reality show that ran from 2002-2005. There were plenty of references to the show in her clue packages that slipped under the radar.

There’s just a few celebrities left as we zoom past the halfway point of the season. See who gets unmasked next week on “The Masked Singer,” which airs Wednesdays at 8pm on Fox!
