The Masked Singer had far less drama than last week—but it wasn't totally free from controversy. 

After the unmasking of Rudy Giuliani on the April 20 episode caused panelist Ken Jeong to walk off the set, he was back in his seat for the latest round of performances.

Queen Cobra kicked things off with a rendition of Aretha Franklin's "I Say a Little Prayer." The biggest question was exactly how many cobras there actually are. A stage full of snakes performed the song, but only two stuck around to get critiques from the panelists. Cobra's Mega Clue was a shiny red heart that said "B. Mine."

Up next, Space Bunny performed Lionel Richie's "All Night Long (All Night)." Bunny's Mega Clue was a big dumbbell that he used to do some curls onstage. 

Baby Mammoth sang a version of "The Shoop Shoop Song (It's In His Kiss)" by Cher, which was followed by the unveiling of a bird cage Mega Clue with a sign that read "Danger: Wild Animal."

Ranking The Masked Singer Reveals From Least to Most Exciting

Finally, The Prince took to the stage for a performance of "Lay Me Down" by Sam Smith. The frog-headed mystery celeb's Mega Clue was a travel bag with a tag emblazoned with the letter P. 

After the studio audience and panel voted, Baby Mammoth and Space Bunny landed in the bottom two and were forced to duel against each other. Mammoth sang Meghan Trainor's "Me Too" and Bunny sang Culture Club's "Do You Really Want To Love Me" in the cuddliest head-to-head competition of all-time.

Once the final vote tallies were announced, Baby Mammoth was eliminated and revealed to be former Cheers and Veronica's Closet star Kirstie Alley.

The Emmy-winning actress has become known for controversy more than credits in recent years. In March, Kirstie drew criticism from her former Dancing with the Stars partner Maksim Chmerkovskiy for comments she made about Russia's invasion of Ukraine. In September 2020, she called the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences new diversity standards a "disgrace to artists everywhere."

Yet, the reveal didn't seem to elicit the same response as last week, as nobody walked off the show this time.

Find out who grabs the last spot in the grand finale when The Masked Singer airs Wednesday night at 8 p.m. ET on Fox.

In the May 18 season finale, Firefly impressed with her version of Usher's "Bad Girl." Her clue package included a basketball hoop, a keyboard and a pin with the numbers 5, 6, 7, 8. After advancing to the final two, she performed Robin Thicke's "Lost Without U," which was enough to earn her the season seven title. After winning the competition, Firefly was unmasked as singer, model and dancer Teyana Taylor.

Firefly flew into the finale on the March 23 episode, first impressing the panel with her performance of "Attention" by Charlie Puth. Then, she writhed around the floor during the Final Showdown against Thingamabob and Cyclops, securing her spot in the next round. The panelists complimented her dancing just as much as her singing. Her latest clue package included a photo of Kanye West, sticks of TNT, a fire alarm and the knowledge that she used to perform shows for her neighbors. 

It was a rocky night for Firefly on the March 16 episode. After an impressive performance of Michael Jackson's "P.Y.T. (Pretty Young Thing)," she still found herself in the bottom two.

After failing to move on to the finale, Thingamabob was revealed to be Philadelphia Eagles offensive lineman Jordan Mailata.

Cyclops sang "Suspicious Minds" by Elvis Presley on the March 16 episode, but it was his Mega Clue that really got the judges talking. A meteorite was brought to the stage with a plaque that read "This meteorite crashed to Earth in 1988." 

On the March 9 episode, Cyclops rocked out to Creed's "My Sacrifice" for his first performance, but it was his spoken word that revealed the most about him. He referred to himself as a "villain" and said he tend to "connect more with monsters than heroes."

His intro video featured a compass and a comic book, hinting that there might be something—and someone!—adventurous involved here. 


Team: Cuddly

Cyclops performed "Flashdance (What A Feeling)" by Irene Cara on the March 23 episode. His clue package included a lottery ticket, milk, Michelangelo's Statue of David, a podcast poster and a fiddle.

Team: Good

On the March 9 premiere, McTerrier was the first contestant sent back to the pound. After a chaotic performance of Loverboy's "Working For The Weekend" that featured his headpiece flying off for the first time in the show's history, the audience was left as flummoxed as they were underwhelmed.

Thus, pastry chef and Food Network star Duff Goldman was sent packing. A ruff start to be sure.
