The Masked Singer: Season Six’s Group B’s last two masked performers – Banana Split and the Queen of Hearts – standing! Tonight, Group B’s finalists performed twice: one final solo performance and a duet! This week, panelists Nicole Scherzinger and Robin Thicke performed with the Group B finalists! Who advanced to the Season Six finale to face Group A’s champion – The Bull? Which masked performer was forced to join Bobby Berk, Ruth Pointer, Tyga, Honey Boo Boo and Mama June in the Group B elimination club? Did any of the panelists, Robin, Nicole, Ken Jeong, and Jenny McCarthy Wahlberg, correctly deduce the eliminated performers’ identity? Read on to find out!

As Nick Cannon and the Men in Black made their spectacular entrance and revealed that Robin and Nicole were the Group B finalists’ duet performers, it was time to get down to business. Banana Split was the first act to take The Masked Singer stage. Tonight, Banana Split performed “Singin’ In the Rain.” I still guess that Banana Split is music legend David Foster and his wife, American Idol icon Katharine McPhee Foster! Nicole praised Ice Cream’s vocals and called them “the light of Season Six.” Ken proclaimed that Banana was the best character in show history. The “Nick Cannon Cannon” came back with a vengeance and delivered a clue to Nicole that said: “Garden.” The former X Factor judge fought back the tears and revealed that David Foster could be the Banana. Ken also seconded Nicole’s guess. However, Robin thought it was not his “Uncle David,” and thought they were Ryan Tedder and Leona Lewis. Banana Split also got a celebrity shout-out from Dr. Phil! 

The Queen of Hearts returned to The Masked Singer stage for her solo performance. She sang Sia’s “Bird Set Free,” and I got chills from the first note. Nicole wiped away tears and proclaimed: “All hail the Queen!” The “Nick Cannon Cannon” clue was for Ken, and the word was “Wrestle.” The Queen of Hearts revealed that they got “dirty.” They did WWE Raw together, and Robin thought it was Christina Aguilera. However, Nicole thought it was Jewel due to her ties to the Lilith Fair. 

Banana Split returned to the stage, and panelist Robin Thicke joined them for a duet. They sang Stevie Wonder’s “Don’t You Worry ‘Bout A Thing,” and Robin and Ice Cream had great vocal chemistry. Ken called the performance = “Pitch Perfect.” Robin called Ice Cream’s vocal range unlimited.

Before Nicole Scherzinger made her debut on The Masked Singer stage with the Queen of Hearts, Oscar-winning actress Hilary Swank gave the Queen a massive shout-out and “good luck.” The duo sang Aerosmith’s “Dream On,” and it was a show-stopping moment. Jenny declared the Group B finale – “the best episode ever,” while Nicole called the Queen of Hearts – “a blessing to have her on the show.” 

Before he got to the vote, Nick Cannon revealed that this was the closest race between the Queen and Banana Split. However, the viewers, panelists, and superfans voted…they awarded the final spot to the QUEEN OF HEARTS! 

Robin Thicke decided to stand by his guess of Ryan Tedder and Leona Lewis. Ken, Jenny, and Nicole’s first impression guesses were David Foster and Katharine McPhee, and they all stood by their guesses. All three of them (and me) were correct as BANANA SPLIT WAS INDEED – DAVID FOSTER & KATHARINE MCPHEE FOSTER!

Next week, the Bull takes on the Queen of Hearts!
