The following contains spoilers for The Masked Singer!
The Masked Singer is down to its final six contestants, and it was a night filled with awesome performances from start to finish. Unfortunately, one of the talented contestants had to be sent home, and The Alien ended up being the one dropped from the contest. Though it wasn't enough to save them in the competition, Alien's performance of "Ex's & Oh's" was really something special. Take a look.
To be truthful, The Alien's performance seemed like one of the stronger performances of the night so her elimination was a bit of a shock. Of course, nothing is ever a sure thing when it comes down to audience votes, and surprise eliminations are to be expected when it's left to the power of the people. At the very least one could argue Alien outperformed The Monster, and possibly Peacock as well, as his song choice this week was baffling.
So who was behind the mask? Spoiler alert! Popular internet speculation struck again and those who didn't catch on last week when The Alien shared a police badge she got from Muncie, Indiana, were never going to find out who this famous Hoosier was. The Invader Zim-like mask popped off, and La Toya Jackson emerged from underneath much to surprise of the audience and some, but not all, of the judges.
Some of the judges were stumped, but there was no fooling Nicole Scherzinger and Robin Thicke. Thicke has been on a hot streak in guessing contestants, as he managed to sniff out Ricki Lake as The Raven before last week's reveal as well. Will his hot streak continue as The Masked Singer heads into the semifinals? Here's hoping, someone needs to make the rest of the judges look good after some of the awful guesses they've thrown out.
And then there were five. With La Toya Jackson down and out of the race, The Masked Singer is left with The Monster, The Bee, The Lion, The Rabbit, and The Peacock who still have yet to be revealed. Of course, we have our guesses as to who they may be, and the mystery behind the remaining identities is slipping away. After Jackson's elimination, it's truly hard to say who will end up being the winner of this whole thing!
The Masked Singer is still rolling on Fox, and new episodes are up on Wednesdays at 9:00 p.m. ET.
