(Warning: This post contains spoilers for Wednesday’s episode of “The Masked Singer.”)
“The Masked Singer” revealed the identity of another celebrity contestant at the end of tonight’s episode of Fox’s whacky, smash-hit singing competition: The Skeleton.
On Wednesday, six Season 2 contestants competed, including The Flamingo, The Black Widow, The Butterfly, The Leopard, Thingamajig and Skeleton.
After the singers performed, panelists Jenny McCarthy, Nicole Scherzinger, Ken Jeong and Robin Thicke and the studio audience chose the “weakest” contestant, which ended up being The Skeleton. He was unmasked and revealed to be musician Paul Shaffer.
Last week, Group D faced off, with performances by The Penguin, The Fox, The Eagle (who was eliminated) and The Flower. The week before that, The Panda, The Black Widow, The Leopard and The Flamingo competed, with Panda being the one unmasked.
Prior to that, The Egg, The Butterfly, Thingamajig, The Skeleton, The Rotteweiler, The Ladybug, The Tree and The Ice Cream competed on the two-hour Season 2 premiere, with Egg and Ice Cream being the ones kicked off and identified.
“Collectively, all of the Season 2 undercover celebrities have amassed 69 Emmy Award nominations, 42 Grammy Award nominations, 22 Broadway shows, three New York Times best-sellers and two have been named Time magazine’s Most Influential People,” according to Fox.
