Who Is The Seahorse? ‘The Masked Singer’ Prediction and All the Clues Decoded!


The Masked Singer season 4 has promised, and delivered, bigger and better stars than ever! One standout among the greats this season has been the Seahorse. She has an insane range, dynamic energy, and an incredible voice. Seahorse is the one to beat in season 4!

But which celebrity is under the Seahorse mask? Here are all the clues decoded, plus our big prediction!

Clues on ‘The Masked Singer’ Season 4

Her initial clues had the Seahorse is standing in front of the “OK Coral” at the beginning. She is having a tea party with two poodles, a dove, and a frog around a campfire. You “may call [her] melodramatic,” but “at times [she] feels lost in this world.” We see a warthog and two dolphins. She mentions her insecurities but sees this as a chance for her to “expose the dauntless diva within.” There’s an “Emotion Ocean” sign as she leads a carriage driven by dolphins.

Seahorse’s clue package starts with her saying she’s a bit “tame” in her normal life. She’s in a carriage with a smile crossed out on it. The Seahorse walks up to the “Under the Sea Saloon and Rodeo,” where there’s a “PLACE YOUR BETS” sign outside. She says “this ain’t my first rodeo” and we see men in black dressed in Daisy Dukes. As a baby Seahorse, she “acted so hard to be a hero and make a name for [herself],” but it only led to rejection. We see a brand with “FAIL” written on it. Seahorse then jumps into a fish tank with four flying clocks reading 9:00 and a broken heart with “A DREAM IS A WISH YOUR <3 MAKES” written on it. She posted up in her room for “what felt like a thousand years.” Lately, she claims she’s suffered “unimaginable loss and pain.”

Jenny said the Seahorse might be Halsey or Camila Cabello. Nicole has guessed Hailee Steinfeld or Pia Toscano, if it’s someone from American Idol, as Robin suspected. Robin ultimately has gone with Bebe Rexha for his predictions so far. Guest panelist Joel McHale guessed it could be Jessica Simpson. On the internet, the most frequent guesses I’ve seen are Tori Kelly, Christina Milian, Carly Rae Jepsen, and Jojo.

Our Prediction for The Seahorse On ‘The Masked Singer’

With a good chance to win the Golden Mask, it’s been my goal to reveal the Seahorse’s celebrity identity. But figuring out who the Seahorse is has not been an easy task! Looking at the clues, we predict the Seahorse is…

Tori Kelly!

And even though she’s trying to disguise her voice by not doing her signature runs, her tone and the clues are unmistakeable. Let’s go through how it all fits together!

Seahorse’s tea party with a rainbow frog, two poodles, and a dove gives a lot of clues! Recently she has been doing a QuaranTEA with Tori, which explains the tea. She also has a poodle mix that looks just like the ones in the clues, sang “Rainbow Connection” with Kermit the Frog, and has won a GMA Dove Award. The four guests at her tea party could also be a nod to when she was on American Idol and there were four judges. She could also be talking about Idol when she mentions failure, as she didn’t make the top 24 on the show.


In addition, we saw a hog with warts, which is a nod to the fact that Tori Kelly is a big Harry Potter fan! A smile in the first set of clues, then a smile with a cross through it in the second, are both allusions to her debut album, Unbreakable Smile.

Tori Kelly is known for her YouTube covers, which are hinted at many times. She rose to fame singing “Thinkin’ About You” by Frank Ocean, explaining the “Emotion Ocean” sign. The “PLACE YOUR BETS” sign could be a nod to her BET Award. And many Disney clues are talking about her singing in “The Disney Family Singalong” and on the We Love Disney album. Finally, we saw clocks with wings and Tori released a cover of Drake’s “Time Flies” in early 2020.
