The Masked Singer’s sixth season is off and running!

We have had FOUR unmaskings so far this season. Octopus (Dwight Howard), Mother Nature (Vivica A. Fox), Pufferfish (Toni Braxton), and Dalmatian (Tyga) said their goodbyes, and tonight, one more performer said: “Goodbye!” Which Masked Singer hopeful was forced to unmask? Did any of the panelists (Ken Jeong, Nicole Scherzinger, Robin Thicke, and Jenny McCarthy Wahlberg) correctly deduce the eliminated performer’s identity? Plus, which Wild Card contestant joined the competition? Read to find out!

After Nick Cannon made his entrance to LMFAO’s “Party Rock Anthem” and revealed the House Party theme, he introduced to the panelists and made fun of stalwart Ken Jeong. The Bull kicked off the evening with his pre-performance package that included an image of Carnegie Hall and revealed that he would pay tribute to Britney Spears with this performance. He sang the Princess of Pop’s “Circus,” and he reminded me of Todrick Hall! Anyway, the Bull delivered an epic performance. Once Nicole finished the “Bull” puns, the Men in Black brought out the Bull’s party favor – gift wrap. Jenny guessed Donald Glover, while Robin thought it was Anthony Ramos and Nicole added Leslie Odom, Jr.

As Season Three alum White Tiger became the show’s DJ, Hamster revealed his pre-performance package. He brought out a scepter and a Bassett hound. Tonight, he sang Queen’s “Crazy Little Thing Called Love.” I listened to Hamster’s voice; he reminded me of an old Hollywood star. As Hamster playfully pet Nick, the Man in Black brought a “Party Animal” hydration hat. Ken stated many SNL alums, including Will Ferrell and David Bowie, while Jenny and Robin added Rob Schneider. However, Nicole guessed Paul Rudd. 

The Masked Singer’s legendary diva, the Skunk, paid homage to Pufferfish and a cookie box in her pre-performance package. She sang the Bee’s “Midnight Train to Georgia” for her chance to make it into the Group A finals. I loved her voice, but I still could not figure out her identity. Robin declared Skunk – the best vocalist they ever had on the show. The Skunk’s party favor was the 80s/90s boombox. Ken guessed that the Skunk was Taraji P. Henson. Meanwhile, Jenny guessed Queen Latifah. However, Nicole thought it was Toni Braxton’s sister and Celebrity Big Brother winner, Tamar Braxton.

In all honesty, Baby Mask is not my favorite performer this season. The Masked Singer participant performed The Flintstones theme song operatically. My eyes widened, and I wanted to press an “X” — but that is from another show. The performance left Ken speechless, and Nicole declared that the show was “off its rockers.” The Men in Black brought a grill and formula. Jenny guessed John Travolta, while Robin thought it was a classic rocker like Keith Richards and Rod Stewart. However, Ken thought it was Hell’s Kitchen star, Gordon Ramsey. What blew me away was the Baby’s superstar friend: Good Morning America co-anchor and sports legend Michael Strahan, who wished him the best of luck. 

Pepper Mask was Masked Singer: Season Six’s Group A wildcard. She revealed that she could be a TikTok star. Pepper sang Labrinth’s “Jealous,” and I got chills from her performance. I think that this Pepper is Jessie J. A tearful Nicole stated that the performance was “drop-dead gorgeous and stunning.” After the panel dropped their first impression guesses, Pepper’s house party gift was roller skates. Robin thought it was TikTok icon turned music superstar Olivia Rodrigo. Meanwhile, Ken guessed Kesha. However, Nicole added that Pepper Mask could be Hailee Steinfeld. 

However, the party was over for Baby!!! However, once the Men in Black brought out the first impression guesses, the panel squirmed. Robin stood by his guess of Chuck Norris, however Nicole changed her guess from Sir Michael Caine to James Corden. Ken guessed Hugh Jackman and decided to go with Gordon Ramsey. Meanwhile, Jenny changed her guess from Kurt Russell to Bruce Willis. None of the panelists were right….Baby was Larry the Cable Guy!!!

Next week, Group B goes on “Date Night” and a new wildcard performer enters The Masked Singer stage!
