What are the clues for Cotton Candy?
Before Cotton Candy took over the stage with the popular number, we saw a short montage in order to pick clues for Cotton Candy. The video opened with the masked celebrity saying, “I am definitely a perfectionist but things in my life haven’t always been sweet.” leading the viewers to further clues where she revealed she was a Wiz kid in her growing up years. The panelists and the audience also saw Cotton Candy revealing that she had to live with another family and she used to get homesick all the time. The visual clues also included a candy, a ladybug, a wizard’s hat, 3-pound weights, an English-style breakfast, a bowl of corn flakes, cupcakes and a clock. The unidentified celebrity added in the video that she had trouble keeping up but now she was feeling glamorous more than ever. In the montage, we also saw how Cotton Candy fell during the rehearsal of her debut performance on the show and got injured.
Did panelists make the right guess?
The panelists including Brian Austin Green, Ken Jeong, Paula Abdul and Ashley Tisdale were left completely stunned when Cotton Candy showed her exceptional dancing skills with an aerial performance. After her set ended, it was time for all the judges to make their wildest guesses by joining all the dots from the visuals. To help the panelists, Cotton Candy used the “Word-Up” feature in her original voice with the word – Prime Time. Looking at the extraordinary dancing skills of Cotton Candy, Jeong said she was definitely a trained dancer adding that he picked the clues of a wizard hat from the visuals. In the end, he was confident it was dancer and TV personality, Julianne Hough. Paula Abdul went for actress Jenna Dewan whereas, Ashley Tisdale opted for Julianne Hough too, same as Jeong’s guess adding that the wizard hat refers to the Harry Potter film where Hough was roped in as an extra.
