Tonight’s The Masked Singer episode begins with host Nick Cannon and on the panel, Ken Jeong, Nicole Scherzinger, Jenny McCarthy-Wahlberg and Robin Thicke. They have new digs this season, a whole new set and the biggest audience in Masked Singer history. Something else new this season, there is a giant bell. Three singers will perform tonight, but only one will move on.

The first challenger is the Mustang who says on the outside her life must look like a shiny Carnaval, she has sold out arenas, won awards, and even collaborated with Elvis. But she has had a lot of pain, she almost died many times. She is a survivor. Tonight she is reigning in all her horsepower as she sexy Mustang. She is singing “Here I Go Again,” by Whitesnake.

Jenny loved the tone of her voice and her confidence. The Men In Black have prepared a swag bag for the singer. There is a magazine inside where Mustang is on the cover. Ken thinks Mustang is Pink. Robin thinks it is Suzanne Somers. Nicole is getting Nancy Wilson vibes.

The next singer is the Gnome who says become a mainstay in our lives for the course of his career, he has done it all. He has joked with Robin Williams to Ben Stiller. He has performed with the biggest names in music, like Madonna. His address book includes all the President’s men. He is proud of what he has done. He is singing, “When You’re Smiling,” by Billie Holiday.

Nicole says he made the whole country smile after his performance. Jenny thinks this is the biggest legend they have ever had on the Masked Singer. The swag bag has a medal with JFK’s photo on it. Nicole thinks it is Dustin Hoffman. Robin is thinking it could be Mel Brooks, but after hearing his voice, he thinks it is Dustin Hoffman as well. Ken is going for Robert Di Nero.

Medusa grew up far from the spotlight, a dancer in the dark and she never quite fit in. Fitting in is something she never truly worried about because she knew she was born to stand out. She did her own thing and ignored everyone who wanted her to confirm. From the Super Bowl to this stage, technically, she has been here before. This time she is here to compete. She is singing, “Happier Than Ever,” by Billie Eilish.

Nicole is in shock, she says she has never been this speechless in nine seasons. The swag bag has a DVD that reads 340 million sold “Medusa – snakes not the astral plane.” Jenny thinks it is Ellie Goulding. Ken thinks it is Bjork, but then he changes to Megan Markle. Nicole says it could be Lourde.

Time to talk about the bell. The panel can save a mask from elimination by ringing the Ding Dong Keep It On, bell. They can only ring the bell three times throughout the first three rounds. Those three saved singers will battle it out on a special episode to rejoin the competition. Voting is open.

The first singer to be unmasked is the Gnome. Final guesses, Ken believes he is Robert De Niro, Jenny is going for Tony Bennett, Robin for Dustin Hoffman, and the same for Nicole.

All the panel was wrong, it is Dick Van Dyke.

Time for the Battle Royale, the masks are singing “Diamonds,” by Rihanna. Ken loved both of them. The panel decides who will move on and who will get unmasked. Medusa is moving on, Mustang will be unmasked. Final guesses, Ken believes she is Pink, Jenny is going with Joan Jett, Robin is stuck on Suzanne Somers and Nicole is switching it up, she thinks she heard some country, Wynona Judd.

All the panel was wrong again, it is Sara Evans.
