AceShowbiz - "The Masked Singer" returned with a bang on Sunday, February 2, premiering its season 3. The FOX competition showed aired after the Kansas City Chiefs beat the San Francisco 49ers during Super Bowl LIV, featuring six of the 18 new singers taking the stage in costume for the first time.
The singers were Kangaroo, White Tiger, Llama, Miss Monster, Robot and Turtle. They were all included in Group A, as this season the 18 masked celebrity singers will be divided into three groups of six. The first to perform was White Tiger, singing "Ice Ice Baby" by Vanilla Ice.
Meanwhile, Llama hit the stage with strap-on booty as she sang "She Bangs" by Ricky Martin after Turtle sang Seal's "Kiss From a Rose". Later that night, Miss Monster reunited on stage with season 1's Monster as they sang Bonnie Raitt's "Something to Talk About.
At the end, Robot was eliminated and was forced to unmasked himself. The judges, Ken Jeong, Jenny McCarthy, Nicole Scherzinger and Robin Thicke, guessed Shaun White, Johnny Knoxville and Steve-O. Flavor Flav and Floyd Mayweather, Jr.'s names were also thrown in the mix.
However, it was revealed that Robot was actually platinum-selling artist Lil Wayne! "I've done five songs with him. This is the most shocked I've ever been on this show." Robin said as he hid his face in his hands. Jenny added, "You just Ken Jeong'ed yourself," referring to Ken who failed to guess his TV sister Margaret Cho was really the Poodle in Season 1.
Lil Wayne has just released his new album "Funeral".
