'The Masked Singer': The Most Stunning Performances, Revealing Clues and Shocking Twists of Week 2!

By

The Masked Singer returns Wednesday night, and ET is following along throughout the entire one-hour episode to break down all the biggest moments, best performances and most revealing clues.

Tonight, fans are going to hear four new costumed contestants sing their hearts out -- and, more importantly, share some big hints -- while the panel of celebrity "detectives," including Robin Thicke, Nicole Scherzinger, Ken Jeong and Jenny McCarthy, try their best to guess the singers' secret identities.

Fox's smash hit who-sung-it reality competition is introducing The Panda, The Flamingo, The Black Widow and The Leopard, who will duke it out before the bottom two face off in a Smackdown round -- and then one will be unmasked.

The fun kicks off at 8 p.m. ET/PT on Fox, and you can watch and follow along as we delve into the glorious madness and bizarre, captivating chaos that is The Masked Singer.

The Moment of Truth Is Here!

5:59 PM:

After the Smackdown round votes are counted, The Leopard found out he'll be singing another day.

Meanwhile, The Panda was told she's have to unmask, after the panelists make their final guesses.

Panelists' Final Guesses:

Jenny: Wanda Sykes

Ken: Queen Latifah

Robin: Loni Love

Nicole: Venus Williams

 

And, after the panelists' totally random and all-over-the-board guesses, The Panda spends the traditional 10 years to figure out how to get her mask off and reveals herself as...

... Laila Ali!

"I said that as a joke!" Robin yelled, referring to an earlier guess he made during the clue package.

"Oh my god, it was crazy!" said the boxer, and daughter of the legendary Muhammad Ali. "It was so much fun."

"This is the first time I've ever lost something like this," Laila added, referring to her undefeated record in the ring. "It's very humbling."

Smackdown Round: The Panda VS The Leopard

5:50 PM:

The Panda goes first, performing (not really singing) a cover of DJ Khaled's "All I Do Is Win," which really doesn't require singing anyway.

Meanwhile, The Leopard delivers a purr-fect (pun intended, it was just weird) cover of Aretha Franklin's "Respect" which he mostly just literally purrs through, but somehow it's still really fun.

The Flamingo Defeats The Panda

5:43 PM:

After the audience voted on their favorite performer, they chose The Flamingo to move on, and sent The Panda to the Smackdown round against The Leopard.

"Congratulations, Flamingo. You get to be a part of our weirdness for another week," Nick says with a laugh.

The Panda Feels 'Stronger'

5:42 PM:

The Panda performed a super fun and sweet rendition of Kelly Clarkson's "Stronger." 

The judges agree that she doesn't sound like a professional singer, but still really like her performance.

Panelist Guesses:

Ken says it could be Martha Stewart.

Nicole suggests it could be Venus Williams, because of the clues about her dad and the sports-centric terms.

Jenny says it could be MMA fighter Ronda Rousey, but later changes his guess to Queen Latifah.

 

The Panda then tells us that she's "lovable but fierce."

The Panda -- FIRST CLUES!!

5:37 PM:

The Panda:

- Says, "Shyness is a virtue."

- Says she comes from "the most famous family of the forest."

- Says, "I have an animal instinct that this challenge will be no match for me."

- The whole clue package is written as a letter from her dad.

The Flamingo's a 'Sucker'

5:31 PM:

The Flamingo can really sing! The pretty-in-pink bird belted out Jonas Brother's "Sucker" and it wows the panelists.

Panelists' Guesses:

 Nicole says it could be someone from Danity Kane or Destiny's Child.

Ken says it could be a "disgraced YouTuber" like Olivia Jade.

Jenny says it might be Tia Mowry.

 

The Flamingo says she's flashy, and that she can be someone's "escape." This gives Robin the idea that it could be Kandi Burruss.

The Flamingo -- FIRST CLUES

5:27 PM:

The Flamingo:

- Says she has a "ZooTube" channel.

- She's reading a "Women's Health" book.

- Says, "I know what it's like to feel trapped in your career."

- Says she wants to "take control of my destiny."

- Says, "It's about time this badass bird got to show her feathers again."

Black Widow Beats The Leopard

5:24 PM:

After audience votes are cast, The Black Widow beat out The Leopard!

This means The Leopard will be singing once more later tonight in the Smackdown round.

The Leopard Wants Somebody to Love

5:20 PM:

The Leopard began singing and shocked the judges with a voice that was distinctly male.

"Nick, we totally got tricked!" Jenny said, after The Leopard's amazing performance of Queen's "Somebody to Love."

The Leopard is far more talkative and animated than most contestants, and they are becoming the most fun contestant thus far.

Panelists' Guesses:

Robin Thicke thinks it could be Billy Porter.

Ken Jeong suggests English singer Robbie Williams.

Jenny says it could be Jamie Foxx.

 

When Nick asks what makes him a leopard, he says, "Leopards can be fierce, and yet divine."

The Leopard -- FIRST CLUES!!

5:14 PM:

The Leopard:

- There's a "J'adore" sign in the background.

- "Know what it's like to be at the top... I've been a heavy hitter. No one could catch me.

- Headline on a newspaper that says "The Runway."

- "I'm stripping away the headlines."

- It's likely a man putting on a false English accent.

The Black Widow Wants to Dance With Somebody

5:10 PM:

Coming out, the judges had no idea what to expect, but when the Black Widow opened her mouth, it blew everyone away.

Belting out Whitney Houston's "I Wanna Dance With Somebody," the Black Widow leaves the judges "blown away."

Panelists' Guesses:

Jenny says it could be Amber Riley.

Ken suggests it could be his Community co-star Yvette Nicole Brown.

Robin says she could be Sherri Shepherd.

 

The Black Widow gave us one more clue, telling the judges, "I like to hide, until it's time to feast." 

 

The Black Widow -- FIRST CLUES!!

5:06 PM:

The Black Widow:

- The judges think she's got "dancing legs."

- Says, "After years of living in the public eye, you're in my house now."

- Says, "Welcome to my empire."

- Says, "Consider this the director's cut of my life."

- Multiple film references.

- We see a crown.

Here We Go!

5:02 PM:

I can't wait for this week's performances!

Also, we just got a sneak peek at a clue from the Lady Bug, who tells the judges (at some point) "The queens of the world taught me how to be a lady!"

ANYWAY, tonight's team-ups are:

The Black Widow vs The Leopard & The Flamingo vs The Panda!

Last week's massive two-hour season two premiere featured performances from eight contestants -- including The Rottweiler, The Thingamajig, The Ladybug, The Butterfly, The Skeleton, The Egg, The Ice Cream and The Tree.

After a hard-fought musical battle, fans had to bid farewell to The Egg and The Ice Cream, who took off their masks to reveal their true identities: ice skater Johnny Weir and pro-gamer and streaming superstar Tyler "Ninja" Blevins.

Check out the video below for more on last week's jam-packed season premiere.
