With such blinding star wattage now absent, the place will we go from right here? And who received the boot on evening three? Read on!

Lion sings Nina Simone’s “Feeling Good”

Joel McHale, probably questioning simply how he received right here, appears to be talking for all of America when he states on the prime of the present, “I really feel like I’m already on medication.”

You’re far more proficient than Ken Jeong.”

When requested if there’s a top-selling singer lurking underneath the masks, Lion notes, “I’ve nothing gold or platinum on my partitions…but.”

Deer does Florida Georgia Line’s “Get Your Shine On”

At this level, the panelists properly suspect that Deer is a NFL participant. And certainly, his efficiency of Florida Georgia Line’s 2013 hit “Get Your Shine On” signifies that singing clearly isn’t his most important occupation.

“Last time I used to be on stage, I used to be actually off my recreation,” The Deer clues us all in. “Being within the backside ain’t my fashion.”

Following Deer’s newest flip in entrance of a mic, Joel McHale searches deep for a optimistic remark. “It was the perfect track I’ve ever seen sung by a deer in a fuel masks,” he pronounces. Don’t fear, Joel — solely 43 minutes left to go.

Peacock croons OneRepublic’s “Counting Stars”

Here’s the factor: I’m pondering Peacock is Donny Osmond. He says he was on stage “as somewhat teenybopper” and has had many alternative incarnations in his storied previous. An extra trace comes tonight when he tells the panelists, “I’ve carried out in Las Vegas.”

Also, let’s not neglect that in 1989, after a protracted drought in his pop profession, Osmond’s comeback Billboard Hot 100 chart hit “Soldier Of Love” was initially promoted with out revealing his identify or releasing an accompanying music video. Folks, Donny was the O.G. masked singer!

Anyway, Peacock expertly belts out “Counting Stars” whereas standing on a hydraulic carry 30 ft above the stage. He’s received all of the agility of somebody who has — oh, I don’t know — appeared on a number of seasons of Dancing With The Stars, maybe?

Unicorn warbles Britney Spears’ “Oops!… I Did It Again”

Unicorn admits that she’s been missing confidence for years as a result of she misplaced her “sheen.” Now, I do know what you’re pondering: Denise Richards was previously married to Charlie Sheen, proper? But attempt to do not forget that that is The Masked Singer. Denise Richards might be a bit too lofty. Brooke Mueller, alternatively…

After relying closely on Auto-Tune to get via a rendition of Britney Spears’ “Oops!…I Did It Again,” Unicorn hears some sage knowledge from the panelists. “I nearly pooped a rainbow,” Jenny McCarthy says.

Unicorn is requested if she’s a gymnast. Her response: “In the bed room.” Television in 2019, everybody.]

Monster tackles Gavin DeGraw’s “I Don’t Wanna Be”

“Almost being unmasked final time was a very robust tablet to swallow,” admits Monster. “I took a drive up from the South in my caddy to clear my head.”

With these clues, the panelists are nonetheless no nearer to determining whether or not the fur-covered, one-eyed creature is an athlete, a singer or a comic. A fiery efficiency of Gavin DeGraw’s early-aughts anthem “I Don’t Wanna Be” impresses Robin Thicke, who pronounces it’s his favourite efficiency of the evening.

“None of the opposite singers went for some bit mountaintop notice on the finish, and he went all the best way to the highest,” Robin says. Host Nick Cannon chimes in that he agrees.

Eliminated: Alas, the time has come for Deer to be shot, strapped to the roof of a rusty Toyota and pushed off the present. Before being unmasked, Robin appropriately surmises that it’s former NFL quarterback and present Fox NFL Sunday co-host Terry Bradshaw beneath the antlers, given the 70-year-old’s shoulder-shuffle whereas laughing.

“This is so demanding,” Bradshaw tells the panelists. “I gotta thank y’all for voting me off!”

What a world.
