However in all honesty, we’re simply right here or Jenny’s unbelievable Dumbledore costume. She was nearly unrecognizable along with her dedication to the look! In the event that they’re on the lookout for somebody to play the headmaster within the upcoming Harry Potter sequence, take into account this her audition. We’ll give Ken’s Snape a slight nod, too, but it surely was actually simply the hair.
Let’s leap proper in with this week’s masks. And don’t be concerned, earlier than we get to the stunning unmasking(s), we will make you energy by the horrible (and infrequently good) guesses made by our illustrious panel of Robin Thicke, Jenny McCarthy, Ken Jeong and Nicole Scherzinger first. We do that as a result of we love … to torture you.
Together with the panel’s guesses, we’ll be sharing some web hypothesis, too, so when you do not need to be probably spoiled (as a result of they’re excellent at this), you could need to skip previous the guesses sections.
Adrienne Bailon-Houghton (Flamingo Season 2)
(“I Put a Spell on You,” Screamin’ Jay Hawkins) Properly, Adrienne proved as soon as once more why she was a deserving third-place finisher within the second season with a hauntingly subdued and commanding efficiency. We had been loving the flames, spinning clock and all the stage manufacturing that surrounded her because it actually set the stage completely for this magic-infused evening.

(“Magic,” Pilot)Tiki continues to impress with the richness of his vibrato and his excellent command of that falsetto. That is somebody who has clearly made a profession together with his voice and showmanship, although it might be as a part of a band slightly than a solo singer. It is simply easy how he sails up and down the vary of those songs. Perhaps he is performed each?
Guesses: This week, Tiki opened up about selecting his household over his hard-rocking, partying life-style. The place he used to occasion till 6am, that is when the alarm goes off to get his child prepared for college.
He additionally mentioned there comes a time when you must determine whether or not to “get watered down” or “change with the tides.” New photographs included a grandfather clock in a trash can, a tissue field with a tragic face on it, a piano and a beer faucet.
This week’s on-stage clues got here from the Sorting Hat, who mused and sorted Tiki into Gryffindor as he is “courageous at coronary heart” and “daring.” To this, Tiki added, “You gotta be courageous to be entrance and heart on the forms of levels I command.”
Final week, Tiki opened up about reaching his childhood goals of turning into a rock star, saying he’d offered hundreds of thousands of data, traveled the world and even partied with a few of the greatest names in music. However, his “free mouth” obtained him into bother and nearly jeopardized all the pieces.
A buddy helped him straighten himself out, the place he says he then stepped out on his personal. So was he a part of a band after which went solo? Photos in his first clue package deal included a chimp with a birthday hat, an alarm clock displaying “Snooze,” a globe, and a cranium.
His first on-stage clue got here on the piano, as one of many Males in Black performed, “I Guess That is Why They Name It the Blues.” He replied, “When you’re ever feeling bluesy, you may come to me for an excellent snort.”
Ken had no assist for his Dave Grohl guess, which he related to the clock clue, however nobody was shopping for it. Nicole obtained nearly no response for her Jon Bon Jovi guess. Though she mentioned he can “sang,” Jenny was proper to query if he is obtained that a lot vary. The reply is not any.
Robin cannot fairly land on the voice, which he is assured is iconic and on the extent of final week’s Robert Plant guess. However even when it is a legend, who’s it?
Properly, social media is narrowing it down with a whole lot of love for Skid Row’s Sebastian Bach, former Van Halen frontman and solo artist Sammy Hagar, and even KISS bassist Gene Simmons (who’s actually large enough).
There are different guesses on the market, like AJ McLean from Backstreet Boys or Journey’s Steve Perry and even It is All the time Sunny star Charlie Day — however you may’t take each guess significantly! This can be a robust one, however we’re liking Bach probably the most.

(“Tremendous Freak,” Rick James)Husky has an attention-grabbing voice in that it does not fairly sound like a seasoned or skilled singer, however he is obtained good command and management of his pitch and musicality. He is a particular entertainer up there, so we discovered ourselves questioning if perhaps he is a hip-hop artist with restricted singing capacity, however sufficient to get by on the best songs. This was a enjoyable efficiency with nice power that had the group dancing alongside, for positive.
Guesses: Husky talked about being underestimated in his youthful years, and even picked on and known as “skinny” when he was a child. He mentioned this led him to “retreat” and work out on his “magical arts.” From there, he went from a “skinny boy to a husky man.”
Whereas he achieved his objectives of rising to turn out to be “high canine,” he admitted to a little bit of imposter syndrome, saying that he nonetheless appears like he hasn’t made it but. This regardless of him apparently “inspiring some lovemaking” sooner or later alongside the best way.
Visible clues included a globe, pink rose, and three king of coronary heart enjoying playing cards. He was sorted into Hufflepuff as a result of he is “simply and dependable,” to which he mentioned, “I really had a sense I would be the Hufflepuff due to my connection to Mr. Puff himself, P. Diddy.”
Final week, he talked about his connection to his costume, saying that huskies have battled all kinds of landscapes and parts and are energetic, conscious, and loving. He describes himself the identical approach. He additionally mentioned he has a “unusual impact” on ladies, main them to swoon and even throw their undergarments at him on stage.
Regardless of that, although, he sees himself as extra of a household man and never somebody within the “trappings of fame.” He additionally prompt he is “gotten on in years.” As for visible clues, we noticed Season 6’s Mom Nature aka Vivica A. Fox, in addition to a cry-face emoji snowball, a carousel, and a chocolate bar.
His first on-stage clue noticed a Man in Black are available driving a type of mechanical rockets. “Properly, I skyrocketed up the charts and landed on this platinum album,” Husky hinted.
The Diddy clue despatched Nicole straight to a few of his many collaborators, like Tank — however extra Ginuwine. Robin instantly obtained enthusiastic about this, speaking about a few of his strikes up there and one particularly he mentioned was “a Ginuwine transfer.”
Brian McKnight was Jenny’s guess, as Diddy produced his monitor “You Ought to Be Mine,” which led to Robin speaking about how McKnight signed him at 15 years outdated and instantly shut down the guess. He is aware of Brian McKnight and this ain’t him!
Social media is ingesting from the identical cup as Nicole, and seeing what Robin is seeing, with a number of Ginuwine guesses. However they’re additionally circling another R&B names like Rick Ross and even Ne-Yo (did they not get the memo that we expect Cow is Ne-Yo — he cannot be two masks, can he?!).
Julia Fox Says Pete Davidson May Profit From Seeing a Dominatrix: ‘Only a Hunch’
(“Each Little Factor She Does Is Magic,” The Police)Hawk has a youthful power and presence on the stage. He can undoubtedly transfer, however he does not actually do it in a musical approach. Together with that he does not sing like somebody who does that often and undoubtedly not professionally. This was simply okay and really a slight step down from the enjoyable power he introduced final week, as if he was attempting to faucet into that and never fairly getting there.
Guesses: Hawk made the tough resolution to hunt assist after dropping his greatest buddy and strongest assist system to most cancers. He admitted that after dropping her, he fell into melancholy and loneliness. However by opening up, he discovered that it’s nonetheless doable to seek out the sunshine — and now he hopes to encourage others to do the identical.
Visible clues on this package deal included a stethoscope, constellation of Hawk, a word from Mama Hawk studying, “I’ll at all times love you, come see me.” One very sturdy clue was a constellation map with the phrase “TEEN” on it that was then magically slashed by what appeared like claw marks.
After he was sorted into Ravenclaw for having a “prepared thoughts,” Hawk agreed. “It makes a whole lot of sense that I am in Ravenclaw as a result of I used to be an excellent pupil,” he mentioned. “Or not less than you noticed me on TV pretending to be.”
Final week, he informed us how he grew up quick in his household enterprise, spending his time as a child hanging out with adults. He described himself as a “whole reject” till heavy guitar chords helped him to construct his personal voice and discover his folks — in addition to happiness amongst his fellow rejects.
Visible clues on this first package deal included a full moon, a treasure chest, and postcard studying “Welcome to New York.” His on-stage clue was an image of Miley Cyrus, to which he added, “Identical to the good Elton John, I, too, have collaborated with Miley Cyrus and I beloved each second of it.”
The key tv clue tied with the slashing claws took Robin to Ryan Phillippe and Merciless Intentions and I Know What You Did Final Summer time. Ken, although, puzzled if maybe it was Andrew Garfield, well-known as highschool child Peter Parker and having opened up about dropping his mom.
Nicole, although, thinks she’d heard the voice earlier than and was very beneficiant to Hawk by suggesting that that is Inexperienced Day’s Billie Joe Armstrong. Though Billie Joe has a extra restricted vocal vary, he is obtained much more capacity than Hawk.
The clues had been pointing us fairly rapidly to a supernatural teen present with the slash claws pairing fantastically with final week’s full moon to take us to Teen Wolf and Tyler Posey. Social media is there, as properly, however they’re additionally plenty of different locations — however he suits the clues so properly, too!
I’m guessing Tyler Posey for the Hawk as a result of I do know he’s a singer, plus he misplaced his mother to most cancers just lately, the “teen” within the clue packet with the claw by it’s for TEEN WOLF! He performs a pupil as properly!!! For positive Tyler Posey! #themaskedsinger
From the second I first hear the Hawk sing, the group Inexperienced Day involves thoughts. I am not a fan, however I am conversant in them. That undoubtedly sounds just like the lead singer from that group. #TheMaskedSinger
Brian Austin Inexperienced Slams DWTS for Not Inviting Fiancée Sharna Burgess to Len Goodman Tribute
(“Love Potion No. 9,” The Searchers)Sea Queen struggled a bit with the timing of this tune, suggesting she’s perhaps not a seasoned singer, however that voice is certainly adequate to be that if she had been to commit in that path (we’re gonna look foolish if she’s a legendary singer). She has such a particular scratch in her voice, she was so compelling to take heed to as she caressed her approach by this tune. She was undoubtedly a shock from begin to end.
Guesses: Sea Queen mentioned she was right down to be the Wild Card tonight as a result of she’s at all times been a little bit of a wild card in life. She then detailed her first job at 14 years outdated giving excursions at a museum — and getting fired. She obtained right into a “fancy” boarding college by her smarts — however obtained kicked out.
She mentioned that the twists and turns of her life, although, are why she’s turn out to be such a triple risk. She defines that, although, as “comedy, writing, singing, I’ve performed all of it!” As for visible clues, we noticed a leather-based bag with 4 feminine silhouettes on it, suggesting maybe a lady group?
We additionally noticed a royal crown on show, trains, and a blue CD participant subsequent to a chook cage. On stage, she was sorted into Slytherin for being “crafty” and “shrewd.” She responded, “Slytherin is smart for me. I’ve at all times been intelligent in my profession. You by no means know what style you will catch me in subsequent.”
Jenny discovered herself pondering of Erykah Badu, who’s shifted genres all through her musical profession. However Ken, as a substitute, was extra on the nostril together with his horrible Queen Latifah guess as a result of … has he ever heard her sing? Nicole, although, was contemplating Jenifer Lewis, who’s been on Broadway and throughout screens huge and small.
Social media, although, couldn’t recover from that particular raspiness in her voice, which they rapidly satisfied themselves was Macy Grey. We won’t say we hate the guess, as we had been listening to a whole lot of that very same power, too.
Sea Queen is 100% Macy Grey. I can’t be taking any additional questions. #TheMaskedSinger
Tara Reid Addresses Longtime Consuming Dysfunction Rumors, Destructive Feedback About Her Look
ROUND 2: SMACKDOWN
As soon as once more, one masks appeared inevitably doomed to fall into this week’s Smackdown, and that was Hawk. He discovered himself right here final week as a result of he simply wasn’t as much as the extent of the others, and that is nonetheless the case. Definitely, Sea Queen got here out with a commanding efficiency that we’re nonetheless jamming to in our heads.
As for who we thought ought to battle it out with him, and possibly win, our cash was on Husky, Tiki took his efficiency to the stratosphere with unbelievable vocal vary and stage presence. Husky is competent however not dynamic as a vocalist. However is that what the studio viewers and panel did with their votes?
They didn’t do what we informed them to do … however they did make the job a lot more durable for Hawk. In fact he landed within the Backside Two, however we weren’t anticipating Tiki to affix him. Is it as a result of he is obtained an old-school rocker sound and rock is not as fashionable as of late?
Tiki v Hawk
(“Monster,” Woman Gaga)Tiki took on a monitor that was clearly totally different for him, however he undoubtedly gave it his all. It did not actually kick into gear till we obtained to the refrain the place we had been in a position to hear that wealthy vibrato and that rocking roar. It undoubtedly wasn’t his strongest efficiency, so he left a gap. Hawk stepped up in a approach we did not anticipate, making this a a lot nearer smackdown than we anticipated. The place Tiki by no means felt snug, Hawk actually embraced the rhythm of the tune and gave a fantastic stage efficiency. Vocally, he was a lot stronger right here than earlier than.

We totally anticipated a rout within the Smackdown, however that is not what occurred. Tiki faltered whereas Hawk actually stepped up. The distinction, although, is that we have now seen them each twice. And with the panel voting, we all know they’ve additionally seen each of them on two totally different nights.
Taking all of their performances under consideration, it isn’t practically as shut and Hawk ought to be the one to go. There is a cause he was within the Smackdown each occasions he carried out. The panel (fortunately) agreed and it was the top of the journey for Hawk.
Robin Thicke: Ryan Phillippe
Jenny McCarthy: Chad Michael Murray
Ken Jeong: Cole Sprouse
Nicole Scherzinger: Billie Joe Armstrong
We’re nonetheless not pleased with Nicole’s guess that that is Billie Joe, or her ear telling her that it is a singer. She’s often extra on level than that. On the similar time, we had been feeling fairly assured that nobody on the panel obtained it proper this week as it’s a teen heartthrob, however maybe a lesser identified one from a present on an sudden community.
We simply could not get previous the total moon and the claw marks over “TEEN” taking us to Teen Wolf. And because it wasn’t going to be Michael J. Fox from the unique, Tyler Posey is the following smartest thing. Tyler was very candy in his appreciation, and thanked Nicole for evaluating his voice to Billie Joe’s.
The Masked Singer continues subsequent Wednesday with 4 new masks as Group C debuts with basic one-hit wonders at 8pm ET on Fox.
