20:00 – “Previously on ‘The Masked Singer’!” In the eighth episode, the contestants from Group B performed songs on the theme “Giving Thanks. The weakest voter ended up being Beach Ball, and when they unmasked the panelists were shocked to see Honey Boo Boo and Mom june standing in front of them. Who will be eliminated tonight?
8:05 p.m. – The semifinals of group A start with Bull. His last performance was very vulnerable. Bull had to dig deep and he showed the panel exactly what it could do. He can’t believe he’s in the semifinals and the Bull are the most nervous he has ever been in his life or career. He’s used to being a solo artist, but it’s a whole new level of pressure. Bull compares himself to others to the point of being almost crippling. He thinks Skunk is amazing and he thinks this voice is someone he has listened to since he was a kid. For this round, he’s picked a song that he hopes will let everyone know he’s a true triple threat. If he were to be unmasked, Bull would be devastated as he desperately wants to advance to the Group A final.
8:10 p.m. – Tonight Bull sings “Rain on Me” by Lady Gaga and Ariana Grande. This performance not only shows Bull’s singing voice, but also his dancing skills. He did it again! Tonight we’ll see how the singers are connected to the panel, so Nick will send a hint to the panelist the performer is related to. Nick pulls out his blingshot and shoots a hint with the word “Ring” on it towards Will. Bull says they have more in common than Will thinks and asks, âDoes that ‘ring’ a bell?â Ken guesses that the bull is the winner of an Emmy Billy Porter. Nicole shakes the singers Bailiff, Jason derulo and Ne-Yo.
8:15 p.m. – Pepper is next with his semifinal performance. Joining the competition just days before it started forced her to adapt very quickly. Pepper can’t believe she made it to the semi-finals. Her goal is simply to explore another side of herself. She’s had the “good girl” thing for a long time and with the pepper it has a lot of spice and spice and energy. Tonight, Pepper is really going to dig into her storytelling ability. All the songs she has sung so far have a lot of emotion, like recovering from the pain. The hardest thing Pepper has experienced was watching the one she loves and cares most about the unthinkable. She just remembers that she wanted things to get better and this song reminds her of that.
8:25 p.m. – Tonight, Pepper sings “Sign of the Times” by Harry Styles. His voice takes center stage for this magnificent catchy ballad. What a powerful voice! Nick shoots a blingshot clue at Ken who says, “Train”. She said, “Even gravity couldn’t stop this train from reaching you.” Confident in his guess, Ken asks for the âTake it Offâ buzzer! Ken sincerely believes that Pepper is Sara Bareilles. Ken crushes the “Take it Off” buzzer, which will force Pepper to unmask if he’s right. But is Ken right? Pepper begins to remove his mask before Nick reveals that Ken is wrong! Pepper is not Sara Bareilles so she will keep her mask. And since Ken wasted so much time, no other panelist can guess.
8:30 p.m. – Then it’s the crazy jester! He says this show is a riot! So funny. But it’s very difficult because it’s a completely different way of working. As a joker, Jester must look like some sort of scallywag that just got bumped at the last minute. The other singers have all made their way through the season and comes this Jester. The man from the cold. The person Jester thinks he’s going to get the most of is his wife. They have been together for 45 years, but unfortunately her health is not what it used to be. But no disease can prevent how much Jester loves her. When she sees this it will be a complete blast for her and she will know without a doubt that it is him.
8:35 p.m. – Tonight, Jester sings “I Am a Man of Constant Sorrow” by Soggy Bottom Boys. It’s an extreme departure from his last heavy metal performance. The panelists are completely confused by this change, but the jester makes people laugh as he likes to do. Nick shoots his blingshot with the word “Cake” meant for Robin. The jester says, âHey, crooked neighbor! Take your cake and eat it! Will thinks Jester is Joe elliot Of the band Def Leppard. Ken says it could be SpaceX CEO Elon musk. He also mentions the media mogul Simon cowell as a possibility. Robin screams one last guess from Chip of Red hot peppers.
8:40 p.m. – The last performance of the evening is by Skunk. Now it’s the semi-finals and the pressure is on. The fierce competition raises the stakes for Skunk as a performer. She thinks Bull is the one to beat because he brings all the energy. It makes him rethink some things. Skunk needs more passion, emotion and soul to win this stuff! No matter what those other contestants bring, every song Skunk does, she makes it her own. Tonight, she pulls out the big guns of a woman who once said she would like Skunk to portray her in a movie. Honestly, the thing Skunk is most proud of these days is that her kids are seeing her perform on this stage. Their mom still has it and she hopes to qualify for the final.
8:45 p.m. – Tonight Skunk sings “At Last” by Etta James. Damn, this Skunk can sing! She is my favorite this season. The panel is crazy about this performance. Robin is standing on the desk while Ken bows down to her. Before the panel announces his guesses, Nick shoots the blingshot at Nicole with the word “Love”. Skunk says she and Nicole have a “romantic bond”. Nicole guesses Mary J. Blige and Robin is convinced that it is Faith Evans. Jenny says all the signs are pointing Jill scott.
8:50 p.m. – The panel, the studio audience and the superfans voted. Only two will qualify for the Group A final. The first singer to be unmasked tonight is Jester. Before the jester takes it off, the panelists’ first impressions will be revealed. Ken guessed Roger daltrey and he sticks to it. Nicole thought it was Sammy Hagar, but she changed her mind to Gene Simmons. Robin’s first impression was Alice cooper, but now he thinks it’s Flea from Red Hot Chili Peppers. Jenny guessed Dee Snider and hold on tight. Jester finally takes off his mask and reveals himself to be … a legendary rock star Rotten johnny, singer of Sex guns!
8:59 p.m. – It’s time to find out who will be the second singer unmasked tonight. Nick gathers everyone and announces that Pepper is coming home. This means Bull and Skunk will face off for the Group A title in two weeks. Before Pepper takes it off, it’s time to get some first impressions from the panelists. Robin first said it was Carly Rae Jepsen, but now he thinks it’s Mandy moore. Jenny chose Lana del rey, but now she goes with it Dido. Ken’s first impression was Kesha, but now he says Pink. Nicole chose Natasha Bedingfield and she sticks to it. Will throws one more guess and says Sia. Pepper finally takes off her mask to revealâ¦ Grammy-nominated singer-songwriter Natasha Bedingfield! This places Nicole on the Golden Ear Trophy with a point. Will she continue this momentum throughout the season and win the trophy this year? It’s a wrap for tonight. The group B semi-finals will take place next week.
