The Masked Singer” is back and fans are already pretty sure about the identity of one of the contestants.

The duo Banana Split, made up of a singing ice cream sundae and a piano-playing banana, wowed the audience with a beautiful rendition of “A Million Dreams” from “The Greatest Showman.” The ice cream sundae’s voice sounded a lot like “American Idol” runner-up Katharine McPhee.

That would make sense, seeing as McPhee’s husband David Foster is a songwriter and piano player. Watch Banana Split’s performance below.

Did the Coaches Guess Banana Split’s Identity?

Did the coaches have any idea who was behind the masks? Jenny McCarthy guessed McPhee and Foster right away, but Ken Jeong said he thinks “Katharine is a little more reserved” than the ice cream sundae. He joked that maybe she’s just that way around him, saying “maybe she’s shy around my brilliance.”

Robin Thicke said that Foster was like an uncle figure to him growing up as he was friends with his late father, actor Alan Thicke. But he guessed Banana Split might be Faith Hill and Tim McGraw. Nicole Scherzinger threw out Emma Stone and Ryan Gosling as a guess.

McCarthy added that the duo was “by far” her favorite performance of the night.

Some fans think that another masked contestant this season, the Bull, is also an “American Idol” alum. YouTuber Joey Contino broke down all of Bull’s clues so far, explaining why he believes the man behind the mask is Todrick Hall.

The judges were pretty stumped about Bull, but Nicole Scherzinger said she’s pretty confident she knows who he is. She chose to write down her guess but not share it with the rest of the panel. If Bull is Hall, it would make sense that Scherzinger knows. She is featured on one of his songs, “Papi.

Hall is a musician, choreographer, and YouTuber who appeared on season nine of “American Idol.
