FOX’s undercover celebrity talent competition paid homage to a music icon.

The Masked Singer: Season 10 celebrated the recently retired from touring – Sir Elton John –  with an exciting night of performances. They also introduced a new cast of characters – Hawk, Husky, Royal Hen, and Tiki! Which performers stood standing at the end of the night? Who saw the sun go down on them and joined Anthony Anderson, Tom Sandoval, and Michael Rappaport in the Season 10 Elimination Club? Did any of the panelists (Ken Jeong, Nicole Scherzinger, Robin Thicke, and Jenny McCarthy Wahlberg)’ guesses acted like “Candles in the Wind”? Read on to find out!

Robin kicked off the night with a performance of “Tiny Dancer,” and I liked his cover of the Elton classic. As Robin returned to the panel desk, Nick revealed four new characters would perform the Rocket Man’s classic songs. Hawk made their Masked Singer debut and I loved the costume! Their pre-performance package featured a full moon, heavy guitar chords, a treasure chest, and a “Greetings from New York” sign. He sang “Saturday Night’s Alright for Fighting,” and I loved his raw, husky vocals. My first impression guess is either Neil Patrick Harris or Brendon Urie. Jenny stated that Hawk made Elton proud, as a “tiny dancer” gave Nick a photo of Miley Cyrus – whom Hawk revealed that he dueted with Miley. Ken guessed Cole Sprouse, while Nicole added Pete Wentz into the mix. Robin thought it was Corey Feldman. 

Husky was the second to perform. The pre-performance package focused on him being a ladies’ man, Mother Nature, and a chocolate bar. He sang “Bennie and the Jets,” and my mind immediately thought of Usher or Smokey Robinson. A “rocket man” brought out the next clue, a rocket, and Husky revealed that he had a platinum album. Jenny suggested Babyface. However, Robin thought it was Terrance Howard. Ken guessed Morris Chesnut.

Royal Hen graced the Masked Singer stage and entered as “I’m Still Standing” blazed. The pre-performance package focused on her coronation with the Eiffel Tower, a bear, and making history. Royal Hen sang “Philadelphia Freedom,” I immediately gravitated toward tennis G.O.A.T. Billie Jean King! Sir Elton and legendary writing partner Bernie Taupin created this song in her honor. The Men in Black brought out the ” Presidential Medal of Freedom,” and Robin immediately guessed Gloria Steinem. Jenny suggested Rita Moreno and Ken added Billie Jean King into the mix.

After Nick interacted with the Tiny Dancers, Tiki Mask entered “Crocodile Rock,” and the Men in Black laid the panelists. The pre-performance package contained a globe, a skull, and a monkey. I immediately heard Steven Tyler’s voice when Tiki sang: “Goodbye Yellow Brick Road.” Jenny proclaimed it was an effortless performance, while a Man in Black played “I Guess That’s Why They Call It the Blues.” Jenny guessed John Stamos, while Nicole suggested David Lee Roth. Robin concluded the round by assuming Robert Plant was in the Tiki Mask costume.

The Masked Singer studio audience and panelists voted to send the birds into the smackdown. Royal Hen sang Elton John and Kiki Dee’s “Don’t Go Breaking My Heart,” I still heard Billie Jean King’s voice. Meanwhile, Hawk went into rockstar mode and belted the Rocket Man classic. The panel voted to send Hawk to the next round and the Royal Hen home. Robin doubled down his guess of Gloria Steinem, while Jenny suggested EGOT icon Rita Moreno. Meanwhile, Ken stood by his guess of Billie Jean King, and Nicole concluded the round with Dr. Ruth.
