Actor-comedian J.B. Smoove visited The Masked Singer as the six remaining masked performers took to the stage. Tonight, either the Alien, Bee, Lion, Monster, Peacock, or Rabbit were forced to unmask! Who was eliminated from the competition? Read on to find out!

After Nick explained the rules to J.B. Smoove, the Monster started the show. He revealed that grew up in the South and that he won a lot of awards. The Masked Singer performed a fiery, but a soulful cover of Joan Jett’s “I Love Rock & Roll.” Panelist Ken Jeong stated that it was a perfect way to kick off the show, and J.B. Smoove called him “a savage performer.” The panelists guessed that Lil Jon, Mike Tyson, and Tommy Davidson was under the mask.

The Lion was the second Masked Singer and in her pre-performance package mentioned Chicago, Empire, and a large family. Tonight, she tackled Lady Gaga’s “Diamond Heart.” Her vocals were on fire. The Lion sounded like the Oscar-nominated actress-singer and put on a vocal show to remember. J.B. Smoove gave her a standing ovation and declared that if he were a rapper, he would wear the Lion as jewelry.  The panel guessed Mel B, Hailee Steinfeld, Dame Angela Lansbury, or a member of Destiny’s Child.

The Alien revealed that she dealt with a lawsuit and problems with the fashion police. Tonight, she sang “Ex’s & Oh’s” and I thought it was her weakest performance of the season. J.B. Smoove called the performance “fabulous,” while the Alien revealed that she was on the best seller list twice. The panel guessed either LaToya Jackson (Nicole was right on the nose), Paula Abdul, and either of the Richie girls.

The Bee was the fourth performer to sing. She decided to a song from a very close friend—Tina Turner’s “What’s Love Got to Do with It.” Her voice gave me chills and she delivered an impeccable vocal performance. Robin Thicke called the Bee a “Living Legend,” while J.B. Smoove commented that he loved her outfit. The panel guessed Gladys Knight (Robin is still correct), Patti LaBelle, and Anita Baker. Before she left the stage, the Bee revealed that she won 10 Grammy Awards.

The Rabbit performed a pop-punk cover of Stevie Wonder’s “Isn’t She Lovely.” Dancers dressed as sideshow performers surrounded the performer. He delivered an impeccable vocal performance. Robin Thicke was impressed by the Rabbit’s flipping the song, while J.B. Smoove was “blown away by this Rabbit.” He revealed that he had 17 tattoos on his body. The panel guessed JC Chasez, Donny Wahlberg, Joey Fatone, and Billy Ray Cyrus.

The Peacock concluded the performances. He performed The Weeknd’s “Can’t Feel My Face” and he delivered a fiery performance. J.B. Smoove loved the Peacock’s style and stated that he should have a Vegas residency. The panel guessed Neil Patrick Harris, Wayne Brady, and Donny Osmond (Jenny was on the nose). He revealed that his face was tattooed on a fan.

After the vote, Nick Cannon revealed that tonight’s unmasked singer was The Alien! The panel guessed Sofia Richie (Jenny McCarthy), LaToya Jackson (Nicole Scherzinger and Robin Thicke), Paula Abdul (Ken Jeong), and  Carmen Electra (J.B. Smoove).  It turned out that both Nicole and Robin were right, it was LaToya Jackson!

Next week, it is The Masked Singer semifinals! Plus, two more masked performers will be revealed.
