Nicole Scherzinger thinks she came up with the purr-fect guess for who might be under the Kitty costume.

In PEOPLE’s exclusive sneak peek at Wednesday night’s episode of The Masked Singer, panelist Scherzinger, 41, thinks she pieced together some clues from earlier in the season to correctly identify the celeb underneath the feline disguise.

“I was watching, with my nieces this week, a movie — it’s called UglyDolls,” the Pussycat Dolls singer begins in the clip. “One of the characters, the UglyDoll, says, ‘Let your freak flag fly!’ And I was like, oh my God, how do I know ‘freak flag fly?’ And that was in her clue package last week.”

So Scherzinger took a peek at the UglyDolls cast list to see if any of the actresses seemed like a fit.

“It could be Emma Roberts,” she deduced.

Fellow judge Robin Thicke admits he thought it could’ve been actress Roberts, 29, as well, but, “I think she might’ve just catnipped it in the bud.”

On Wednesday’s episode, Kitty goes up against Banana, Frog and Rhino in hopes of getting one week closer to winning the Golden Mask. The Talk‘s Sharon Osbourne, whose daughter Kelly competed on the Fox singing competition as Ladybug in season 2, joins Ken Jeong, Jenny McCarthy, Scherzinger and Thicke as this week’s guest judge.

The Masked Singer airs Wednesdays (8 p.m. ET) on Fox.
