“The Masked Singer” brings back the Bee, Monster, Peacock and Raven for episode 6 on Wednesday, February 6. In advance of their return, the show has released a teaser video with clues as to the real identities of each of these costumed crooners. Take a look at the video above, and then if you dare, read our spoilers as to the true identities of these four contestants.
The Bee is the Grammy-winning singer Gladys Knight. This singing legend is coming off her stellar rendition of the national anthem at the Super Bowl. In the clues video, we see kitchenware. Gladys is almost as famed for her cooking as she is for her singing. This week, the Bee generates lots of buzz with her cover of the Miley Cyrus hit “Wrecking Ball.”
The Monster is the rapper T-Pain. This one-time chart-topper took a long break from the business after being criticized for his overuse of Auto Tune. In the clues video, we see the wheels of a skateboard, one of T-Pain’s favorite sports. This week, the Monster roars with his rendition of the Lenny Kravitz cover of the rock classic “American Woman.”
The Peacock is the former teen idol Donny Osmond. This showbiz veteran is a versatile performer as we’ve seen in previous weeks. The clues video references whales, which could be a play on the country Wales. Donny has two connections with this part of the United Kingdom, tracing his ancestry back to there and having headlined a show on BBC Wales.
The Raven is talk show host Ricki Lake. The only non-professional singer of the bunch, she has redeemed herself in previous weeks with her performances. The clues video show us a positive pregnancy test. Lake produced and appeared in the groundbreaking 2008 documentary “The Business of Being Born,” which chronicled her pregnancy.
