The Masked Singer returned Wednesday night for another evening of wild, wacky fun! ET is following along throughout the exciting one-hour episode to break down all the craziest moments, best performances, and most revealing clues -- which all come courtesy of some close, personal friends and family of the costumed contestants.
Group B is hitting the stage for the last time tonight, and fans are getting a chance to see the group's four remaining characters sing their hearts out -- and share some revealing clues about their secret identities -- in a battle for spots in the Super Six. Which means, tonight will also feature a shocking double elimination.
Everyone's favorite panel of celebrity "detectives" -- including Robin Thicke, Nicole Scherzinger, Ken Jeong, and Jenny McCarthy -- are trying their best to guess the singers' secret identities, as fans at home keep their eyes peeled for all the smallest and most revealing hints.
The fun kicks off at 8 p.m. ET/PT on Fox, and you can follow along with ET in our live blog, right here:
And The Serpent Is...
Wow, Nicole knows her stuff. It's Dr. Elvis Francois, the singing surgeon!
"This is unbelievable. It's a once in a lifetime situation," Elvis shares. "It's very different from what I do on a day to day basis, but something that I'll never forget for the rest of my life."
Ken is actually brought to tears when he compliments his viral hit. He has to choke back tears as he tells the doctor, "You're version of 'Imagine' got us through the pandemic."
"That living room concert you did on Fox, that was the first time we saw it. And in a concert of stars -- it was Elton John, Billy Joel, everybody -- the best moment of that living room concert, um, was you," Ken shares, with tears streaming down his face.
"I told my wife, who's also a doctor, 'You know, that's what a real doctor does, man,'" Ken continues. "He's an orthopedic surgeon. I was a generalist. This guy is smarter than any doctor on the planet, and there's just truly no one more talented than him. And I'm crying because I'm jealous that you're more talented than me."
Wow, what an emotional and surprisingly honest moment! That's why we love this show!!!

Whatchamacallit Leans On His Flow
While Whatchamacallit is the first to admit he isn't the same kind of singer as his opponents, he still knows how to deliver a show.
This week, he gets everyone on their feet with a performance of "Lean Back" by Terror Squad, featuring Fat Joe and Remy Ma.
"This was absolutely your best performance," Jenny marveled with a huge smile.

The Crocodile Has a Lot of Love
The Crocodile has sure shown a lot of range throughout his time on the show. Hitting high notes and showing everyone a good time with his song choices.
This week, he's showing us a softer, more emotional side that really leaves the judges in awe with his performance of "Bleeding Love" by Leona Lewis.
"You just punched your ticket, man," Robin said. "That was your best vocal."

The Seahorse Steals the Spotlight One More Time
Every time she takes the stage, The Seahorse makes performing seem effortless.

"I mean, that might be Britney Spears up there," Nicole marvels in awe. "That was spot on! That was crazy."
Game Changing Clue:
This week, the clues are delivered by a Masked Singer alum who the star has some connection with. Which essentially means a past character will come out to deliver the clue.
I this case, it's The Astronaut -- who fans will remember was unmasked as Hunter Hayes in Season 3 -- and he's holding a Foam Finger with the words "Seahorse's #1 Fan" on one side and "Seahorse was never in a girl group" on the other side."
Jenny suggests Kesha.
Cheryl says it could be Kellie Pickler.
Ken thinks it could be Sia, and Nicole thinks that could be a good guess.
The Seahorse -- NEW CLUES!!
