‘The Masked Singer’ Season 3 Episode 6 Recap
After Dionne Warwick was unmasked as the Mouse at the end of episode 5, only 4 contestants remained in “Group B,” battling it out for only 3 spots in the season 3 Top 9.
Before the night’s performances began, season 1 winner T-Pain was revealed as the night’s guest panelist.
Then, for a Masked Singer first, all 4 contestants (Kitty, Frog, Taco, and Banana) took the stage to perform “Larger Than Life” by The Backstreet Boys together.
Kitty was the first solo performance of the night. After she sang “Mama’s Broken Heart” by Miranda Lambert, the judges guessed she might be Christina Ricci, Kristen Bell, or Kristen Bell.
The Taco was up next, and his clue package revealed that he has children. He performed “I Can’t Help Myself” by The Four Tops. Nicole guessed that the Taco might be Barry Manilow, while Robin predicted that it’s Howie Mandel and Jenny guessed Jerry Springer.
The Banana sang “Lean on Me” by Bill Withers after his video clue package, which featured his two children (masked, of course). He said he chose the song in honor of his father, who recently passed away. The judges guessed Brad Paisley, Larry the Cable Guy, or Johnny Knoxville as possible identities of the Banana.
The last performer of the night was the Frog, who sang “You Dropped a Bomb on Me” by The Gap Band. His clue package strongly suggested that the celebrity behind the mask got his start in Hollywood as a child star.
In the end, the Taco received the lowest number of votes from the audience and was eliminated from the competition. The other 3 contestants will return to The Masked Singer stage to compete in the “Super 9.”
The Taco Was Unmasked, Revealing…
… Emmy award-winning comedian and host of Dancing With the Stars Tom Bergeron!
Before the Taco took off his mask, the judges made their final guesses. Nicole guessed Barry Manilow, Ken and Robin guessed Martin Short, T-Pain guessed Kelsey Grammer, and Jenny guessed Jerry Springer. None of the judges guessed correctly.
Of his time on The Masked Singer, Bergeron said “This was the most work I’ve done in years.” He explained that the friendship bracelet he gave to Nicole Scherzinger was in honor of her perfect score on Dancing With the Stars; the friend who gave clues in his video package was Bob Saget.
