This means that episode 2 will not introduce any new contenders to the stage; all 5 episode 2 contestants have already performed once before, during the season 3 premiere.
Here’s what you need to know about the 5 characters performing on episode 2 of The Masked Singer season 3:
Miss Monster’s costume is a direct homage to the season 1 winner of The Masked Singer, “The Monster” (who turned out to be rapper T-Pain). She revealed in the premiere that seeing T-Pain compete on the show is what inspired her to participate in season 3.
Miss Monster sang “Let’s Give Them Something to Talk About” for her premiere performance, showing off her seasoned vocal ability. Her video clue package featured the number 10, suggested the celebrity beneath the mask has a special connection to that number. In the clue package, she asked “Will you still love me without knowing my name?”
The White Tiger
For his premiere performance, the White Tiger sang “Ice Ice Baby.” The judges were struck by his imposing height and build, and guesses that the celebrity beneath the mask is likely an athlete.
Some of the White Tiger’s major clues in his first video package were a trophy for the Ultimate Champion of Clam Shucking and that he says he’s motivated by his fans and ready to “get in that ring and smash the competition.”
For the Turtle’s first performance, they blew everyone away with a cover of “Kiss From a Rose” by Seal. After the performance, which showcased the Turtle’s singing talents, guesses like Joey McIntyre and Zac Efron were made by the judges. On Twitter, fans guessed that maybe the Turtle is Jesse McCartney.
The Llama’s premiere clue package suggested that the celebrity beneath the mask might be a comedian or a radio host. At one point, he even said he’s “Here to have a laugh and what’s funnier than a llama?”
The Llama sang “She Bangs” by Ricky Martin for his first performance, further emphasizing that he doesn’t take himself too seriously and is in the competition to have a great time.
For the Kangaroo’s first performance, she chose to sing “Dancing on My Own” by Robyn. Her voice impressed the judges and audience members and proved her to be an early frontrunner in the competition and, quite possibly, a recording artist by profession.
The Kangaroo referred to herself as a survivor, and told the judges “One of my greatest fears is being vulnerable, but this year I’ve had no other choice than to be vulnerable.” Her premiere clue package revealed that she lost an important part of her family this past year, which has been hard on her.
