'The Masked Singer': Seahorse eliminated and revealed to be Tori Kelly, fans say she's their 'true winner'
After Taylor Dayne emerged from behind the Popcorn mask and the Jellyfish was revealed as the Olympic gold medalist Chloe Kim, Tori Kelly was unmasked as the Seahorse
'The Masked Singer' aired one of its most difficult episodes of the season on Wednesday (December 2). Featuring the best of the best, these masked celebrities battled it out for the past nine weeks to make it on the "Super Six" list of finalists and on Wednesday the lineup was slashed into half.
It all began with the Crocodile and the Seahorse going head to head against each other. The least voted performer out of these two megastars and one of the biggest voices on this show was about to be sent home. The Seahorse went first performing 'That's What I Like' by Bruno Mars. She blew it out of the park with this one, exhibiting runs and adlibs that were never done on the show ever before. Then came the Crocodile and before his performance he'd mentioned in his clue package that he was doing the show for his "croclings", his kids. The doting father that the crocodile is, he said that he drives eight hours after every show to see them. He'd won the judges at that point but he took it a notch higher as he sang 'I don't want to miss a thing' by Aerosmith. The hunger to stay in this game was pretty clear in the way he was belting out those notes, giving the judges all the feels.
It was time for the panel to vote and choose one among these two performers to advance to the finale and the Crocodile made it and the Seahorse was eliminated and was up for being unmasked at the end of the show. After Taylor Dayne emerged from behind the Popcorn mask and the Jellyfish was revealed as the Olympic gold medalist Chloe Kim, it was now time to find out who the sassy Seahorse was and she was none other than singer-songwriter Tori Kelly.
