‘The Masked Singer’ Season 4 Episode 3 Recap
After the Dragon was unmasked at the end of the season 4 The Masked Singer premiere as Busta Rhymes, only 4 contestants remain in “Group A:” the Snow Owls, the Sun, the Giraffe, and the Popcorn.
At the start of the episode, they introduced a “new” contestant: “The Robin.” The masked Robin Thicke look-alike performed Thicke’s song “Blurred Lines” for the judges. When the singer took off his mask, he revealed himself to be Joel McHale, the episode’s guest panelist.
The Popcorn was up first among the contestants, and she sang “Falling” by Harry Styles. The panelists guessed she might be Gloria Gaynor, Katy Perry, or Vanessa Williams.
The Giraffe performed next. For his episode 3 song, he chose “Get Down on It” by Kool & The Gang. The judges thought he could be Travis Barker or Scott Wolf. Ken Jeong guessed Shia LeBeouf and listed a number of reasons justifying his guess while the panelists, host, and Giraffe himself nodded off waiting for Jeong to finish talking.
The Snow Owls chose to sing a love song, dueting to “Like I’m Gonna Lose You” by Meghan Trainor. Their song choice had most of the judges thinking they’re Garth Brooks and Trisha Yearwood or Keith Urban and Nicole Kidman. Ken Jeong said the performance reminded him of Eurovision, and guessed Will Farrell and Rachel McAdams.
The last performance of the night was given by The Sun, who performed a powerful rendition of “Praying” by Kesha. The judges guessed it could be Mandy Moore, Demi Lovato, Katherine McPhee, or Carrie Underwood.
At the end of the night, the audience cast their votes and the Giraffe received the least number of votes, which means it was his turn to be eliminated.
The Giraffe Was Unmasked, Revealing…
…Brian Austin Green! Green is best known for acting on Beverly Hills, 90210.
The judges’ first impression guesses for the Giraffe were:
– Ken Jeong: will.i.am
– Nicole Scherzinger: Dale Ernhardt Jr.
– Jenny McCarthy: Travis Barker
– Robin Thicke: Jaleel White
Jeong changed his final guess was Shia LeBeouf, McCarthy instead guessed Seth Green, and Thicke took McCarthy’s first guess and predicted it was Travis Barkley behind the guess. Scherzinger stuck with her guess of Dale Ernhardt Jr., saying that the number 8 domino tied into his number 8 car. Joel McHale guessed it was Jason Priestley.
Green and Thicke were best friends and neighbors growing up, and Robin was even a clue in the Giraffe’s package (he had a Robin on his shoulder).
Green explained that the peaches were in reference to the peach pit. Green is married to Megan Fox, so the judges were on the right track connecting the Giraffe and Fox via a Transformers-related clue.
New episodes of The Masked Singer season 4 air on Wednesday nights at 8/7c on FOX.
