Season 5, Episode 6 - "In the Nick of Time!"

Seashell's new clue package found the contestant in a shopping mall. It showed her carrying a shopping bag, walking past a wedding cake, signing an autograph and posing for a selfie with a fan. She then browsed the mall, pausing to look at a pill bottle labeled "strength supplements." Finally, Seashell pulled a shimmering cape off of a mannequin and put it on herself, standing triumphantly with her fists on her hips.

"I've been so fortunate my entire career to walk in a variety of shoes," Seashell said. "But one of the things I'm most proud of is that I've been called 'a trailblazer, a role model.' Sometimes I get stopped when I'm out shopping, or at the movies, and it's the biggest honor because when I was younger shells like me weren't given many opportunities to be seen. But, I fought the current that flowed against me. And now, seeing so many people following my path — that's what keeps me going strong. Now, tonight, I can't wait for everyone to see what I have in store as I continue to blaze forward."

Seashell sang "Tell Me Something Good" by Rufus featuring Chaka Khan. The panelists thought this was her best performance yet, and Cannon agreed. He then launched a t-shirt at the panel which read: "Motown." Seashell explained: "Motown brought my family together."

This led McCarthy to guess either Ashanti or Maya since they are signed to Motown Records. Scherzinger went with Keke Palmer, while Thicke guessed actress Alicia Silverstone.

Season 5, Episode 3 - "Enter the Wildcards!"

The Seashell emphasized that this return to the stage comes after a long break away, in a clue package where she stood on a massive pair of binoculars. She was green-screened into a number of tiny scenes, from under a cabinet to a couch to a shelf of potted plants. She also hinted that she was married to "a certain shell man," who is still her rock to this day.

The Seashell's self portrait showed her standing in front of a tornado, containing a microphone, a book, a barbell and a bowl of food. She said: "I wear many hats, so sometimes it can be a bit of a tornado, but I like to see myself as a super hero."

The Seashell got the panelists on their feet with her take on "Confident" by Demi Lovato. Guest panelist Joel McHale made the first guess -- Jessica Simpson, adding: "I am never wrong." Ken Jeong countered with Jenny Slate, while Robin Thicke went with Haylie Duff.

Season 5 Premiere — "Return Of The Masks"

The Seashell was accompanied by beach imagery in her clue package — notably including a hot dog with relish, a green chameleon and a pink bell sinking to the bottom of the sea with a pink clam shell. She said: "When I was young, I was pulled by the tide all around the world with my family. Always adrift, I never felt grounded. So I found my peace by the shore. When my career took off, it was like a massive tsunami of success. But, much like my childhood, I still drifted, wearing many hats."

This last comment was accompanied by the Seashell holding a cowboy hat and a broom. She continued: "I often wonder if I found my true calling. That's part of why I'm here. I'm nervous, and I haven't sang in a really long time. But I want to face my fears. I've always wanted to sing on stage. I used to, waaaay back in the day, and I kind of stopped to pursue other careers." Cluedle-Do added to this: "No two shells are the same."

The Seashell sang "Listen to Your Heart" by Roxette, and the panelists noted that they started out sounding "nervous" but slowly eased into the performance. As for the guesses, Ken Jeong threw out a few ideas -- Sarah Jessica Parker, Anne Hathaway and Kristen Chenoweth. Scherzinger skewed younger, guessing Hillary Duff, while both Robin Thicke and Jenny McCarthy proposed Jessica Simpson. Even the judges noted that they have had a lot of guesses for this one.

Who is singing under Seashell's mask? Who knows! But we'll eventually find out as The Masked Singer airs each Wednesday at 8 p.m. ET on FOX. You can watch live on FuboTV, using their free trial.
