The Masked Singer season 3 episode 3 airs on Wednesday, February 12 at 8/7c on FOX. The episode features performances from the 4 remaining contestants from “Group A” and another unmasking.
Episode 3 is the last “Group A” episode. On February 19, 6 new characters in “Group B” will be introduced for their first performances of the season. The remaining 3 characters from tonight’s episode will not return to the Masked Singer stage until Groups B and C have each found their final 3. The episode is expected to center around love, as a Valentine’s Day-themed holiday episode.
Here’s what you need to know about the 4 characters performing in episode 3:
The White Tiger
While we don’t know who the celebrity beneath the White Tiger mask is yet, we do know costume designer Marina Toybina’s influence behind designing the elaborate get-up. She told Entertainment Weekly “With the White Tiger, I want[ed] to do something that was a little bit inspired by an Egyptian influence. And when we found out who was cast for it, it was just a perfect fit.” Of the celebrity beneath the mask, Toybina hinted “He’s just fun, outgoing, incredible, and loves his costume. It is somebody that enjoys his performance and is definitely larger than life on stage.”
Last week, the White Tiger rapped to “Good Vibrations” by Marky Mark and the Funky Bunch for his performance. For the top clues and guesses for the White Tiger so far, click here.
When the Turtle sang “Say You Won’t Let Go” by James Arthur for his episode 2 performance, he made it clear that the celebrity beneath the mask is a talented performer and has likely had a career as a professional singer. The Turtle says that being a contestant on The Masked Singer is “such an opportunity to break out of [his] shell.”

The judges have noted the Kangaroo’s height during her first two performances of the season, and the Kangaroo even remarked in her last clue package that she’s having trouble maneuvering in the costume due to the Kangaroo mask’s big ears.
After her performance of “You Know I’m No Good” by Amy Whinehouse, the judges dubbed the Kangaroo a frontrunner for the season. It’s unlikely that she’ll be eliminated during episode 3; if she makes it through tonight, fans will have to wait until she returns in the top 9 to continue their guessing and dissect more clues about her identity.

The judges are in agreement that the celebrity beneath the Miss Monster costume is a music legend, and fans on Twitter are predicting that the woman behind the mask is Chaka Khan. Promotional material for tonight’s February 12 episode teases that “An icon is revealed” at the end of the episode. If Miss Monster is, in fact, Chaka Khan, that would certainly qualify as an iconic unmasking.
