Rub-a-dub-dub. It’s shower anthem night The masked singerand the three returning contestants from season 11 came ready to clean up the competition.

Host Nick Cannon was appropriately underdressed for Wednesday’s bathroom theme, completely shirtless under his suit jacket. Luckily, the four panelists (Ken Jeong, Robin Thicke, Jenny McCarthy-Wahlberg, and Rita Ora) had time to get fully dressed.

The Group C singers began with a performance of Becky G’s “Shower” as bubbles filled the stage. Cannon then announced that there would be a double elimination, first in which the one with the fewest votes would be immediately eliminated, and then the remaining two would fight for a place in the next quarterfinals. However, she reminded the judges that they would still have the opportunity to ring the Ding Dong Keep It On bell to save a contestant from elimination this season.

During the main competition, Clock sang Aretha Franklin’s “Respect”; Lizard surprised everyone by performing Evanescent’s nu-metal hit “Bring Me to Life”; and Poodle Moth performed Miranda Lambert’s “The House That Built Me.”

Given the double elimination, the lowest scoring singer of the night was eliminated with no chance of redemption in a battle round, and unfortunately Lizard’s big swing on his song choice wasn’t worth it for him, so it was declared first out.

The panelists made their final guesses before the unmasking. McCarthy-Wahlberg changed hers from D’Angelo to Ray J, and Jeong chose Bell Biv DeVoe’s Michael Bivens, which none of the panel members agreed with and even caused the Lizard himself to collapse on stage. Thicke said that he and Ora had been on the same page about their assumption for a while, and Ora enthusiastically stated that they thought it was Sisqo, having previously said that if it was, then it would have been worth knowing about his entire trip to the United States. him.

Fortunately for Ora, her trip to America was not in vain and, for the first time this season, the panel was finally able to guess correctly: Lizard was revealed to be Sisqo, the chart-topper of “Thong Song” and “Incomplete” and former Dru. Member for the Hill. He revealed that he did the show because his family loves watching it and they have guessed it in previous seasons.

Ora was completely fanatic as Sisqo, now unmasked, delivered one last song, s-song, song, song for the crowd. Unlike the eliminated contestants who usually performed the same song from earlier in the episode, she delighted fans by singing the 2000 hit ode to her cheek-revealing garment.

Next, Clock and Poodle Moth faced off mask-to-mask in Battle Royale, each taking on “Ain’t No Mountain High Enough” by Marvin Gaye and Tammi Terrell. Both songs were flawless, but Clock was ultimately declared the night’s winner, meaning Poodle Moth would have to be unmasked once the panelists made their final guesses about him.

Following an earlier hint that Poodle Moth has a special connection to Thicke’s father, the late growing pains Star Alan Thicke, the singer of “Blurred Lines,” was convinced she was Shania Twain, whom her father once sheltered when she first moved to Los Angeles from Canada to get a record deal. McCarthy-Wahlberg thought she was We are star Mandy Moore, while Jeong guessed Brooke Shields, and Ora went with Sharon Stone, who Thicke revealed was the “honorary best woman” at his father’s wedding.

However, we still don’t know if any of them were right, as Ora gave in to the studio audience chanting “ding dong” and ran to ring the bell just in time, saving Poodle Moth. Both she and Clock will compete in the upcoming quarterfinals.

Group A will return next week for Transformers Night, whatever that entails.
