After 3 weeks watching “Group A” perform on The Masked Singer, viewers were introduced to 6 new characters competing as “Group B:” Taco, Frog, Elephant, Kitty, Mouse, and Banana.
First up was the Frog, who sang “U Can’t Touch This” by MC Hammer. The judges guessed that the Frog, who showed off his dance skills throughout his performance, might be Carl Lewis, Michael Johnson, or Ray J.
The Elephant was next to perform, and while it didn’t seem like the Elephant is a singer by profession, the judges applauded his performance. They guessed he might be Lance Armstrong, Travis Barker, or Tommy Lee.
The Kitty took the stage in an elaborate showgirl outfit and showed off her commanding presence by singing “Dangerous Woman” by Ariana Grande. The judges guessed that the celebrity behind the mask could be Julianne Hough, Paris Hilton, or Nicole Richie.
The Taco, whose goofy costume is made complete by a smiling tomato head and leafy green hair. When the Taco started singing “Fly Me to the Moon,” the audience and judges were blown away by his incredible singing voice. Nicole Scherzinger remarked that she thinks the celebrity behind the Taco mask is legendary.
Before the clues and performances resumed, Tyson Fury and Deontay Wilder showed up at the midpoint of the episode to promote their upcoming fight.
After the commercial break, the Mouse took the Masked Singer stage to sing “Get Here” by Oleta Adams. It was clear in her beautiful voice that she is a seasoned singer, whose successful career in the music industry has spanned decades. Nicole Scherzinger guessed Darlene Love, Robin Thicke guessed Dionne Warwick, and Ken Jeong guessed Maya Rudolph.
Last to perform was the Banana, who impressed the audience with his rendition of “A Little Less Conversation” by Elvis Presley. His major clues that the judges zeroed in on were a cowboy hat, references to drinking and party, and a blowfish.
In the end, the first singer in “Group B” to be eliminated was the Elephant.

For their final guesses, Jenny McCarthy guessed Lance Armstrong, Ken Jeong guessed Beto O’Rourke, Nicole Scherzinger guessed DJ Steve Aoki, and Robin Thicke guessed Travis Pastrana. None of them were correct.
He skated through the White House in 2010, he chose a song by The Cure for his performance because he and his wife had their first dance at their wedding to a song by The Cure.
Before his exit from the show, Hawk told the panelists “I appreciated your support and this was a totally new experience for me.”
