‘The Masked Singer’ Recap: New Contestants Perform on Elton John Night
Reading Time: 2 minutes
The Masked Singer Season 10 returned to FOX on Wednesday for Elton John Night, as four new contestants took the stage. At the end of the night, Royal Hen was unmasked as tennis legend Billie Jean King.
Who Was Unmasked on The Masked Singer Elton John Night?
During Wednesday’s episode Royal Hen took the stage to sing John’s song “Philadelphia Freedom.” The panelists could tell that someone legendary was under the mask, with guesses including Gloria Steinem and Rita Moreno.
At the end of the night, Royal Hen was in a Smackdown with Hawk, who had performed “Saturday Night’s Alright For Fighting” earlier in the episode. They both performed “Don’t Go Breaking My Heart” in their own style.
Ultimately, Royal Hen was eliminated from the competition and had to be unmasked. Ken Jeong continued his trend of correct guesses this season by predicting that it would be tennis legend Billie Jean King under the mask.
He turned out to be correct. To make her appearance even more special, King is friends with John, and the song “Philadelphia Freedom” was actually written for her. Jeong has now correctly guessed three out of the four celebrities unmasked so far this season.
Husky, Royal Hen Have the Panel Guessing
Wednesday’s episode also introduced us to Husky, who teased that they have a connection to Mother Nature, aka Vivica A. Fox. Husky performed “Bennie and the Jets” and shared that they released a platinum-selling album. Guesses from the panel about Husky’s identity included Babyface, Terrence Howard, and Morris Chestnut.
The last performer of the night was Tiki, who shared that they always wanted to be a rock star but ended up getting into a lot of trouble. They performed “Goodbye Yellow Brick Road” and shared that you can come to them “for a good laugh.” Guesses from the panel included John Stamos, David Lee Roth, and Robert Plant.
Husky, Tiki, and Hawk all moved on to the next stage of their group’s competition, so we’ll have to wait a little longer to find out who’s under their masks. What did you think of this week’s episode? Let us know in the comments below.
