In the British invasion-themed episode of the popular show, the last four remaining contestants, California Rolls, Macaw, Medusa and UFO, hit the stage once again in front of the panels.
AceShowbiz -“The Masked Singer” returned for its season 9 Quarter-Finals on Wednesday, May 3. In the British invasion-themed episode, the last four remaining contestants, California Rolls, Macaw, Medusa and UFO, hit the stage once again in front of the panels who included Ken Jeong, Nicole Scherzinger, Jenny McCarthy and Robin Thicke.
First up was Macaw. “Acceptance is definitely something I’ve struggled with both in my career and in my personal life,” Macaw said in their clue package. The bird performed “Your Song” by Elton John.
Robin was totally impressed, saying, “That vocal could win the championship of season 9.” Gerard the Butler later brought an additional clue, which was a leader. The judges guessed David Archuleta, Ryan Cabrera, Darren Criss, Macaulay Culkin and Gavin DeGraw.
Following it up was California Rolls, who belted out their unique rendition of Radiohead‘s “Creep”. Jenny commented, “Just bring out the Golden Mask trophy right now.”
As for California Rolls’ additional clue, Gerard the Butler presented the phrase “White House.” One of the California Rolls said, “Well, we had such a good time performing at the White House they even gave us a standing O.” Among the guesses were Gloria Estefan‘s backup band Miami Sound Machine, Pentatonix and the “Hamilton” cast.
UFO was the next performer. “So much of my career is based on the way that I loop physically,” she teased in her clue package. That night, UFO opted to sing “Tears Dry on Their Own” by Amy Winehouse.
For her extra clue, an alien phoned in “red, white and blue.” UFO added, “I’m beyond proud to represent and come from the USA.” The panel mentioned Lily Collins, Rebecca Romijn and Molly Sims for UFO’s identity.
Medusa rounded out the night with an emotional performance of “Someone Like You” by Adele. After Gerard the Butler brought one last time for a final clue, which was “mom,” Medusa explained, “Being an artist is my greatest passion, but being a mom is my favorite job.” The judges thought Medusa could be Ellie Goulding, Halsey, Imogen Heap, Evanescence‘s Amy Lee, Regina Spektor or Ashlee Simpson.
Host Nick Cannon eventually announced the results of the votes and revealed that UFO received the least amount of votes. Before UFO pulled off that mask, the panelists submitted their final guesses. Robin named Molly Sims, Jenny thought UFO was Gigi Hadid, Nicole went with Lily Collins, while Ken guessed Rebecca Romijn. None of them was correct because UFO was 2012 Miss USA and Miss Universe Olivia Culpo.
The judges were beyond surprised following the revelation. “Did you know she could sing like this, Nicole?” Jenny asked. The “Butter” singer replied, “I know that you’re the most gorgeous human ever – I mean, look at that face – but I didn’t know you could sing.”
