'The Masked Singer' Live Updates: Robopine Gets Unmasked

The Masked Singer is back with the Spicy Six. The final six competitors in Season 5 — Piglet, Russian Dolls, Chameleon, Robopine, Black Swan, and Yeti — will all be back to show the judges what they're made of. You can rest assured that the judges — Jenny McCarthy, Nicole Scherzinger, Robin Thicke, Ken Jeong, and guest judge Chrissy Metz — will share their opinions about the remaining contestants. Of course, you can also follow along here for all of the live updates you'll need for the latest episode of the Fox competition.

9 p.m. ET: While all of the Spicy Six were phenomenal, Robopine got eliminated at the end of the episode. After the panel made their final guesses, the masked singer removed their spiky mask. They then revealed that they were Fast & Furious actor Tyrese Gibson.

8:52 p.m. ET: Chameleon, who was sporting an even jazzier version of his costume. He said that his secret to success is doing something that is authentic to yourself. Chameleon, who said that he was a military kid, said that he has found his “groove” by making the songs “his own.” The items in his package included orange slices, brownies with a sign saying that they’re for $ale, a Captain’s hat, and a toy airplane with “Chameleon” on it.

Chameleon, dressed in a glow in the dark outfit, performed Busta Rhymes’ “Put Your Hands Where My Eyes Could See,” in what may have been his best performance yet. Jeong is adamant that Chameleon is a rapper, guessing Young Thug. Scherzinger took a legendary route in guessing Snoop Dogg.

8:42 p.m. ET: The Russian Dolls were up next, and their clue package involved two of them sharing details about their lives. One of them said that when they first started in the industry, they didn’t know that they would be subject to so much criticism. The other masked singer said that their looks were even criticized. Similar to the other clue packages, their segment focused on a series of items — a dime and nickel, a gold belt buckle, and a wok.

They said that they wanted their voices to shine through for their latest performance of Bradley Cooper and Lady Gaga’s “Shallow,” and they certainly did. McCarthy went with one of Scherzinger’s previous guesses of the Hanson Brothers. Jeong shared a somewhat out of left field guess of Avril Lavigne with her ex-husband Chad Kroeger of Nickelback.

8:33 p.m. ET: Black Swan said that when she was little, she would sing outside and do so without fear. She’s trying to channel that same “fearlessness” for The Masked Singer. Her clue package was short and sweet and also featured items such as a black umbrella, a map of New Hampshire, and a sun kissed soda poster.

She said that she’s singing one of her favorites, which turned out to be Stevie Wonder’s “Do I Do.” After the Black Swan shared her appreciation for Mariah Carey (a.k.a. Nick Cannon’s ex-wife), Robin Thicke said that he was picking up on Kesha vibes. Metz then guessed Christina Millian, another one of Cannon’s exes. Jeong suggested Mandy Moore, but none of the other judges seemed to be on board with that one.

8:22 p.m. ET: Piglet kicked off his clue package by sharing an embarrassing story from his fraternity days, during which he and his “bros decided to shave our heads in unity.” After doing so, he realized that he has a birthmark on the side of his head that’s in the shape of an apple. Unfortunately, for Piglet, he then ran into a sorority girl that he had a crush on, and she told him that he needed hair. He has since found his “dream girl” who appreciates him and his “apple head.” Other items in the clue package included plastic vampire fangs, the numbers one through five, and gold bars.

Piglet, once again, showed off his impressive vocals with his performance of Phil Collins’ “Against All Odds (Take a Look At Me Now).” Shortly after they performed, Cluedle-Doo entered the scene to note that Piglet “caught touchdowns from Dan Marino.” Jeong guessed a series of famous vampires due to the fangs in the package, as he suggested Ian Somerholder and Robert Pattinson. But, Scherzinger said that it’s a “boy band voice” and guessed Brian Littrell or Nick Lachey.

8:14 p.m. ET: Robopine was the next to share more details about his identity. The masked individual, who stood in a carnival-esque set, began by saying that his family once struggled and that they used food stamps. Robopine then said that one of his fondest memories was going on a school trip to a theme park (hence the set). One person who was close to Robopine, who was involved in their special memory, was “taken too soon” in a “tragic way.” Robopine said that if they were around today, they would be “proud” of his journey. The clue package focused on a series of items that were on the set, including a stack of books, a breakfast of eggs, toast, and Grade AA butter, a jar of jam, and comedy and drama masks.

Robopine showed an emotional side to himself as he performed Boyz II Men’s “Water Runs Dry.” His vocals definitely caught the attention of the judges, who praised him for showcasing this new side of himself. McCarthy hit a lightbulb moment with Robopine’s identity, as she guessed both Usher and Forest Whitaker. Scherzinger then guessed Tyrese Gibson. Metz shared yet another great guess, as she suggested that Robopine could be singer and actor Tank.

8:08 p.m. ET: The Yeti was the first one up at-bat. He explained to the producers that he was feeling on top of the world after his previous performance, during which he showed off his skating skills. Yeti explained that some might not know that he’s a family man and that he’s the father of a daughter. The masked singer said that his next performance would have a “whole new set of moves” and that he was doing this competition for his “children.” As the Yeti shared his clues, the package featured chocolate ice cream cones, a blue pacifier, and a panda doll.

Yeti definitely wasn’t wrong, as he showed off his dancing and rapping skills for a rendition of Rob Base and DJ EZ Rock’s “It Takes Two.” He even ended his performance in a full split. Jeong guesses that the Yeti could be Vin Diesel. Guest judge Metz shared two very good guesses in Trey Songz and Miguel.
