This is it!

For the first time this season, The Masked Singer: Season Four’s Super Six (Sun, Popcorn, Seahorse, Crocodile, Mushroom, and Jellyfish) appeared together on stage. However, only three masked performers were only allowed to move on to the Season Four finale!

Which performers were one step closer to potentially join the Monster (T-Pain), the Fox (Wayne Brady), and Night Angel (Kandi Burruss) in the Winners’ Circle? Which singers joined Mickey Rourke, Wendy Williams, Clint Black and Lisa Hartman Black, and Paul Anka in the Season Four elimination club? Did The Masked Singer panel (Ken Jeong, Nicole Scherzinger, Robin Thicke, and Jenny McCarthy Wahlberg) correctly deduce the eliminated celebrities’ identities? Read on to find out!

To kick things off, all six performers tackled A-Ha’s “Take Me On.” I knew everyone’s identities, but Jellyfish and Mushroom. As the singers went backstage, a mystery performer sang Gloria Gaynor’s “I Will Survive.” It turned out to be actor and future Masked Dancer host Craig Robinson. 

As Craig joined his fellow Masked Dancer colleague Ken Jeong and the rest of the Masked Singer panel, host Nick Cannon revealed that the Top Two members of each group would face off against each other smackdown style. Up first, Group B’s Seahorse and Crocodile! Before she performed, the Seahorse revealed a super clue: a telescope! Tonight, Seahorse sang Bruno Mars’ “That’s What I Like.” I still believed that Tori Kelly is under the Seahorse mask. Both Jenny and Nicole praised Seahorse’s vocal abilities, and Craig declared that she was “playing in the clouds.” 

Tonight, every clue revealed which performer was connected to the panel. It turns out that the Seahorse is associated with Nick! She stated that Nick was a great host to her when Seahorse was a guest on one of his shows. Robin predicted Tori Kelly as Seahorse, while Jenny thought it was Kesha. Craig thought it was Sia. 

After the performances, the panel and super fans voted to send THE CROCODILE to the finale, which meant that the Seahorse will be one of the three performers to unmask. As the Seahorse waited backstage, Ken Jeong showcased his dance skills to try to get a spot on The Masked Dancer as one of the performers.

Once Craig welcomed Ken to The Masked Dancer, Group C’s Mushroom and Jellyfish appeared on stage. The Mushroom kicked off round two by revealing that he wanted to unite the fans under music. His super clue was a clock set at 3:00. He sang Amy Winehouse’s “Valerie,” and I still thought that Mushroom was Anthony Ramos. I enjoyed hearing the beatboxing at the end of the performance. 

As Craig was left speechless by the performance, it was revealed that Mushroom was connected to Robin. Mushroom said that he mixed it up with Robin in the past. The “Blurred Lines” singer thought it was Jaden Smith, while Nicole guessed Jordan Fisher. Craig suggested Leslie Odom, Jr., and Ken thought Keegan-Michael Key. 

Popcorn went first. The panelists’ positive comments made her weep under the mask. She has been around for decades, and her super clue was a “Stop” sign. Tonight, she sang Tina Turner’s “Better Be Good to Me.” Since her second performance, I thought Popcorn was legendary pop vocalist Taylor Dayne, and I still stand by this prediction! Ken called the performance “a religious experience.” Popcorn Mask revealed that she had a connection with Jenny and stated that they talked before and were published authors. Jenny thought it was either Mary Wilson or Taylor Dayne. Meanwhile, Robin thought it was Bette Midler. Craig thought it was Mary Wilson as well.

At the end of the voting, SUN was sent directly to the Final Three! Sadly, we had to say “goodbye” to Popcorn. Everyone except for Nicole guessed the same person: Tina Turner. Nicole thought it was Diana Ross and then changed it to Taylor Dayne. Both Ken and Robin stood by their guesses of the “Private Dancer” singer. Jenny changed it to Taylor Dayne! Meanwhile, Craig joined the ladies in guessing in Taylor Dayne. I was right…POPCORN MASK WAS TAYLOR DAYNE! 

As Taylor Dayne left the stage, it was time to unmask Jellyfish! I still had no idea who Jellyfish was, so I had to go along with the panel. Robin stood by his guess of Gabby Douglas, while Jenny thought it was McKayla Maroney. Meanwhile, Nicole thought it was Grimes, and both Ken and Craig stuck with Chloe Kim. It turned out KEN WAS RIGHT FOR THE SECOND TIME THIS SEASON…JELLYFISH WAS CHLOE KIM! 

Finally, it was time for Seahorse to unmask. I was astonished to see the former frontrunner unmask tonight. Ken initially guessed that the Seahorse was Fergie and decided to change it to Christina Aguilera. Robin thought it was JoJo, but changed it to Tori Kelly for his final guess. Jenny’s first impression guess was Halsey, and stood by her original guess. Nicole initially guessed Maren Morris, but she changed it to Tori Kelly. Craig Robinson’s final guess was Tori Kelly. It turned out that Craig, Robin, Nicole, and I WERE RIGHT!! TORI KELLY WAS THE SEAHORSE! 

In two weeks, The Masked Singer: Season Four Finalists face off for the Golden Mask!
