'The Masked Singer': Tori Kelly returns and Ken Jeong goes 'rum pum pum pum' on holiday singalong episode
Here's everything you can expect from December 9's episode of the show with Ken Jeong taking a break from being a judge
With Christmas fast approaching, 'The Masked Singer' is getting into the festive spirit with Wednesday night's (Dec 9) episode. An exciting hour awaits fans as the show brings back popular celebrities that were unmasked earlier this season, including the celeb in the Seahorse mask aka Tori Kelly. Tori was one of the frontrunners in the race for the golden mask trophy but unfortunately, she was eliminated and unmasked as her opponent, the Crocodile, managed to garner more votes from the pre-selected audience members and the judges. Other unmasked celebrities that are expected to return include Lisa Hartman Black, Bob Saget, Brian Austin Green, and the recently evicted Taylor Dane.
Everyone looks shiny and ready to celebrate, Nicole Scherzinger is giving purple a break and she looks stunning in a golden gown, as seen in the teaser. Ken Jeong won't be seen on the judges' panel in this episode. He's giving away his duties and has instead swapped it for a chance to perform on 'The Masked Singer' stage. Dressed in an all-red toy soldier outfit, Jeong slips into the role of a drummer boy singing the Christmas classic "A Drummer Boy". Audiences can sing along and keep up with Ken as the lyrics appear on the screen, like all sing-along episodes in the past and a mini Ken bumping above the words.
Season 3's singalong episode was a disappointment. Fans had to watch an encore of the fan-favorite performances of the participants in the episode when instead all they wanted was new clues and performances. In Season 4's singalong episode, makers are learning from their mistakes and the episode will feature the three finalists: The Sun, The Mushroom and the Crocodile debut never-before-heard holiday songs with all-new clues.
Here's the description of the singaalong episode giving an idea about what one can expect from it. “Join America’s favorite guessing game to get into the holiday spirit! The final three singers perform never-before-heard holiday songs with all-new animated clues, and the already unmasked celebrities join together to perform their favorite holiday jingles. Tori Kelly (formerly the Seahorse) performs a song form her new Holiday album. Play alongside host Nick Cannon and panelists Ken Jeong, Jenny McCarthy, Nicole Scherzinger and Robin Thicke as the masked bunch of celebrity singers perform and America tries to guess who they are! The Season Four celebrity contestants combined have sold more than 281 million records worldwide, appeared in more than 5,120 episodes of television and 204 films, appeared in five Super Bowls, have four stars on the Hollywood Walk of Fame, and one of Time Magazine’s 100 Most Influential People. Sing along to your favorite holidays songs with the masked cast in ‘The Holiday Sing-Along’ episode.”
