Do you think you know who The Kitty is? Read on for the top clues given and guesses made about their celebrity identity so far.
Kitty on ‘The Masked Singer’ Clues
Fans were treated to a short clip the Kitty’s episode 4 performance before the episode aired. In the video, Kitty sings “Dangerous Woman” by Ariana Grande, showing off her sensuality and confident stage presence. Her performance featured two back-up dancers in catsuits and a chair dance, matching her over-the-top showgirl costume design.
In an exclusive clip shared with The Wrap, judge Robin Thicke called her a “fan favorite,” adding “I think you did an amazing job with the vocals. You moved great and there’s really no other character quite like her on this season.”
The judges commented on how tiny the Kitty cat is when she took the stage for the first time. Her title card said that her strength is “nine lives,” and her weakness is “hairballs.” These details are more likely fun quips about the character than actual clues about the celebrity.
At the start of the Kitty’s first video clue package, she said “I feel at home among the weird and the wonderful.” She also said that she is ready to “wipe the slate clean” by competing on The Masked Singer. Later, she added that people expect her to be a certain way.
Milk, pirates, a wizard, the moon, and a shattered rose were the main visual clues that appeared during her visual package. Robin Thicke wondered if the pirates were referencing Pirates of the Caribbean.
It is also worth noting that the Kitty has two different-colored eyes (one is blue and the other is brown).
When Nick Cannon asked the Kitty how it felt to perform in her costume, she said “I am being somebody that nobody has seen before and has always been inside of me. So it’s great!”
‘The Masked Singer’ Kitty Guesses
Based solely on the short clip of Kitty’s performance shared by The Masked Singer ahead of the episode, a first guess that came up on Twitter several times was actress Elizabeth Gillies, from the television show Dynasty.
Nicole Scherzinger guessed Julianne Hough or Paris Hilton. Piggybacking off of Nicole’s guess, Ken Jeong wondered if the Kitty might be Nicole Richie.
On Twitter, The Masked Singer asked fans to weigh in on who they think is behind the Kitty mask. Actress Keira Knightly was a popular guess, likely because of the vague Pirates of the Caribbean reference made in the clue package.
At the end of the episode, the Elephant was eliminated, revealing [SPOILER ALERT] Tony Hawk as the celebrity behind the mask. This means that the Kitty’s identity will remain a mystery for at least another week, and he will return in episode 5 with more clues and another performance.
Tune in for new episodes of The Masked Singer season 3, Wednesday nights at 8/7c on FOX.
