This episode of 'The Masked Singer' saw judge Nicole Scherzinger in tears after Group C contestant Astronaut took to stage. He sang Lauren Daigle's 2018 hit 'You Say'. The soulful performance left everyone touched and Nicole was left wiping away her tears at the end of the performance.

"You just sang your heart out, thank you so much for being vulnerable," said Nicole. Astronaut's voice reminded Jenny McCarthy of a boy bander and she went with Lance Bass as her guess for who she thinks is under the mask. Ken Jeong guessed Adam DeVine and Josh Hutcherson and Nicole are very convinced that it could be Zac Efron.
