'The Masked Singer' Season 3: Could the celeb under the Turtle mask be Jesse McCartney? Fans think so
While fans were shocked to find that Drew Carey was disguised as the Llama, they seem pretty confident about the Turtle
Fans predict they have the Turtle's identity in the bag and they are not taking into consideration any other predictions.
'The Masked Singer' Season 3 returned on Wednesday night for the Group A Playoffs, after its premiere following the Super Bowl LIV on Sunday night. Last week we saw the Robot get unmasked, only to reveal that it was none other than Grammy Award-winning rapper Lil Wayne.
This week, judges Robin Thicke, Jenny McCarthy, Ken Jeong and Nicole Scherzinger were joined by a new guest judge — 'American Pie' actor Jason Biggs. The remaining five masked celebrities — the White Tiger, Kangaroo, Llama, Turtle and Miss Monster took to the stage and performed their best act hoping not to get eliminated.
Sadly one of them had to go and it turned out to be the Llama. The Llama turned out to be comedian and 'Price is Right' host Drew Carey. While fans were shocked to know that he was disguised as the Llama, they seem pretty confident when it comes to one particular masked singer — the Turtle.
This week the Turtle performed his version of James Arthur's 'Say You Won't Let Go'. Prior to his performance, in his pre-taped clues, he revealed, "Being here feels like such an opportunity to break out of my shell."
He added, "People have always expected me to act in a certain way. That really tests me! I want to rebel from all that." In the clue package, the Turtle gets detention after pulling the fire alarm, and on the board, he writes, "Don't Rave Ever At My School — Turtle".
After watching him perform and pondering on his clues, fans are sure they have the Turtle figured out. Taking to Twitter fans predicted that it might be singer Jesse McCartney under the Turtle's mask.
"So the #TurtleMask wrote out 'Don’t Rave Ever At My School - Turtle' and every first letter of every word together spells out 'DREAM ST' As in Jesse McCartney was a member of Dream Street and Turtle is in fact @JesseMcCartney and I am living for it! #TheMaskedSinger," a fan wrote.
"The turtle has my heart It really does sound like @JesseMcCartney What a talent #TheMaskedSinger," a fan wrote. Another said, "Also, just tell me you're the turtle, @JesseMcCartney. I promise I won't tell. I'll just be happy you tweeted me back. I've only been in love with you since the 3rd grade."
"The turtle on #TheMaskedSinger is very clearly Jesse McCartney. 13 year old Carly deep inside of me is MELTING," a fan wrote.
Another said, "I would like to point out that my mom never watches #TheMaskedSinger with us but did this one time after the Super Bowl, heard the Turtle sing ONE NOTE, and went "it's obviously @JesseMcCartney " like WHAT ?? Is my mom, JESSIE, a stan of JESSE?!"
"#TheMaskedSinger THE TURTLE IS JESSE MCCARTNEY!!! I KNOW IT IS IM 100%," a fan wrote. Another said, "@MaskedSingerFOX The Turtle is @JesseMcCartney, Ive been a fan of his music, hard to NOT know his voice. Especially his falsetto. #TheMaskedSinger."
"Going off of voice alone because I didn’t get anything from the package I’m sticking with Jesse McCartney for the turtle #TheMaskedSinger." Do you stan with the fans? Let us know in the comments below.
