The Masked Singer: Kitty Gets Clawed Out of the Quarterfinals — Find Out Who the Feline Is
"I wanted to show a different side of myself," the unmasked contestant said at the end of Wednesday's episode
The Masked Singer season 3 arrived at the quarterfinals on Wednesday night, with Frog, Kitty, Night Angel, Rhino and Turtle facing off for a slot in the final four. Comedian Jeff Dye joined judges Ken Jeong, Jenny McCarthy, Nicole Scherzinger and Robin Thicke to help make the tough decision.
After each performance, the costumed stars presented the contents of a "borrowed" package from their homes in hopes that their online shopping order might give an additional hint about their identity. Turtle confused the judges by presenting them with a zombie, but his rendition of Coldplay's "Fix You" had some panelists thinking Turtle might win the whole competition. "That's my favorite one, man," Jeong told Dye. "I think he's gonna take it all."
Scherzinger agreed, telling Turtle, "That was the best performance so far of the season and right now you have guaranteed your spot in the final."
McCarthy thought the Golden Mask trophy should go to Night Angel, who sang "Last Dance" by Donna Summer. "You are gonna take this mask home if I was the only judge here," McCarthy told Night Angel.
Based on the studio audience's vote, both Turtle and Night Angel will be moving on, but Kitty won't be since she received the least amount of votes. For the panelists' final guesses, they tossed out Vanessa Hudgens, Anna Kendrick, Lea Michele, Ashley Tisdale and the Olsen twins.
But when Kitty removed her furry mask, it turned out to be Jackie Evancho underneath.
"I wanted to show a different side of myself," the America's Got Talent star, 20, said of why she came on The Masked Singer.
Evancho also thanked the panelists after being unmasked. "Without you, I don't think I would have discovered where I want to take my career and who I want to represent myself as in the future," she said.
