'The Masked Singer' Season 3: Jackie Evancho revealed as Kitty after being eliminated from quarterfinal episode
This is not her first outing on a singing reality game show. Evancho's first reality show outing was 'America's Got Talent'
It was the quarterfinal episode on 'The Masked Singer' tonight (May 6). The remaining five contestants on the show -- Frog, Kitty, Rhino, Night Angel, and Turtle were vying for a spot in the Top 4 and one of the performers with the least votes from the studio audience was about to be sent home. Kitty was the lowest voted contestant on the episode and 'America's Got Talent' contestant Jackie Evancho revealed herself from under the mask.
There were a number of guesses doing the rounds among the judges on the show. Names like Lucy Hale, Taylor Momsen, Leighton Meester, and Jennifer Love Hewitt were popular with the judges but none of them ever guessed Evancho.
The reveal left the audiences at home in a state of shock as well and they took to Twitter to voice it out. "OMG absolute Fan of hers since #AGT! Never would've guessed." wrote a fan.
"Dude I can’t believe Jackie Evancho was on the show! I remember when she first came out, and David Foster and her had a PBS show, her voice is so beautiful I cried!" wrote another.
Another fan tweeted, "I was so sad to see Kitty get eliminated. I loved her. I had no clue who it was until the reveal. I was shocked but happy to see Jackie Evancho."
"Out of all my Kitty predictions, Jackie Evancho was nowhere on the list. I was guessing Noah Cyrus, Monique Coleman, or Keke Palmer. But JACKIE EVANCHO????" wrote a shocked a fan.
With Kitty eliminated, the rest of the contestants -- Frog, Turtle, Rhino, and Night Angel -- have advanced to the Top 4. Here is a lowdown of their performances in the quarterfinal episode.
He was the first one up on the quarterfinal stage. In a pretaped clue package video that played before his performance, he was seen busting some crazy moves in a barn.

For the performance, he chose 'Bust a Move' by Young MC. He did bust many moves on stage and his groovy footwork coupled with the fun rap left all of the audiences as well as the judges matching steps with him.
His extra clue package was a jet plane and the judges guessed names like Anthony Mackie, Bow Wow, Derek Hough, and Sir Mix-a-Lot.

For tonight he chose, 'You’ve Lost That Lovin’ Feelin' by The Righteous Brothers. His extra clue was a navy hat and he mentioned it held a special significance in his life. Names that came up amongst the judges for Rhino's identity on the episode included Jason Aldean, Trace Adkins, and David James Elliott.
Night Angel's clue package noted that she began her singing career at the age of four, singing along to Donna Summer. She also was heard saying that people don't always know her for her singing.
