‘The Masked Singer’ Season 7 Episode 6: Miss Teddy, Armadillo Unmasked

SPOILER ALERT: Do not read on if you have not seen season 7, episode 6, of “The Masked Singer”, “The Double Mask-Off – Round 2 Finals”, which aired on April 13 on Fox.

The mystery of host Nick Cannon’s missing shirt was not resolved in Wednesday’s episode of “The Masked Singer”, but the show sent yet another disguised celebrity to its final round. That meant two more contestants were eliminated in a double exit on this week’s show: Duane “Dog the Bounty Hunter” Chapman as the armadillo and Jennifer Holliday as Miss Teddy.

Armadillo aka Chapman was voted out after singing the traditional hymn “Amazing Grace”. Previous songs he performed included “Secret Agent Man” by Johnny Rivers and “I Fought the Law” by Bobby Fuller Four.

As for Holliday, she sang as Miss Teddy “Mercy” by Duffy. Prior to that, she performed “Tell It to My Heart” by Taylor Dayne and “Tell Me You Love Me” by Demi Lovato.

“This is perhaps the biggest disturbance in ‘Masked Singer’ history,” said panelist Ken Jeong about Miss Teddy’s exit.

For Armadillo, Jenny McCarthy Wahlberg and Nicole Scherzinger got it right with Dog the Bounty Hunter. Robin Thicke thought it was Stone Cold Steve Austin. Ken Jeong threw Al Pacino out – to the laughter of the audience and other panelists. Guest panelist Leslie Jordan thought it was Gary Busey.

For Miss Teddy, Nicole Scherzinger got it right with Jennifer Holliday, and guest panelist Leslie Jordan agreed. Ken Jeong guessed Yolanda Adams. Robin Thicke thought it was Gospel singer Karen Clark Sheard. Jenny McCarthy Wahlberg joined Gloria Gaynor.

(Previous panel guesses for Armadillo included Chuck Norris, Erik Estrada, Vin Diesel, Gary Busey, Jay Leno, William H. Macy, Tommy Lee Jones and Al Pacino. Previous guesses for Miss Teddy included Lauryn Hill, Vanessa Williams, Jill Scott, CeCe Winans , CeCe Peniston, Loretta Devine, Gloria Gaynor, Jennifer Hudson. Yolanda Adams and Mavis Staples.)

Last week’s “mega clue” for Armadillo / Chapman was keys and a motorcycle while “Leader of the Pack” played.

“Let me paint a picture of who I once was,” Chapman, like Armadillo, said during this week’s package of clues. “Even though I’m Team Good, I used to be bad. I mean a little bad behind bars. I was on my way to becoming a roadkill. Until I got a piece of advice that shook me in the skull. I was told I had the power to change my life. I just had to find my passion and my faith. So tonight is a song that my mom sang for me to get me through the hard times. My bond with her is what gets me to the finals. Mom, this is for you. “

Miss Teddy / Holliday’s “mega clue” last week was a Grammy.

“Some might say my career is a masterpiece,” Holliday said in this week’s clue package as Miss Teddy. “As a young teddy bear, I did not know what I was getting into. So I followed my heart and took a chance. I was very nervous for my first audition and I got the job! And it turns out that the only audition I’ve ever had to take. I was an instant success. But it was not easy. I have had my ups and downs. I was afraid that if I did not use my talent, no one would love me. But my fans made me realize that was not true. So tonight I will come to the final for them, to give back the love they have given me for decades. It means everything to me. “

Duane “Dog the Bounty Hunter” Chapman as Armadillo and Jennifer Holliday as Miss Teddy join the list of unmasked celebrities that also includes Penn and Teller as Hydra, Christie Brinkley as Lemuren, Jorge Garcia as Cyclops, Jordan Mailata as Thingamabob, Duff Goldman as McTerrier and Joe Buck as the ram.

The Final Showdown featured Chapman as Armadillo, Holliday as Miss Teddy and the still unmasked Ringmaster who performed “One Way or Another” by Blondie. Ringmaster (“Team Good”) and Firefly (“Team Good”) are now ready for the finals.

“The Masked Singer” entered season 7 with 15 contestants who have been split into “The Good, the Bad and the Cuddly”. This season’s costumes include THE GOOD: Ringmaster, Armadillo, McTerrier, Firefly, Frog Prince; THE BAD: Hydra, Ram, Jack in the Box, Cyclops, Queen Cobra; KUMMET: Babymammoth, Thingamabob, Lemur, Space Bunny, Miss Teddy.

Season 7 contestants boast a total of 112 film appearances, 15 Grammy nominations, eight Emmy nominations, seven Super Bowl performances, two Hollywood Walk of Fame stars and two world records.

In another change, the show’s panelists do not appear to be vying for a “Golden Ear” trophy based on their first impression of each masked performer (which McCarthy has won twice, but Scherzinger won last season) this season.

I was surrounded by some of the best of the best, and I wondered if I would ever get good enough. And it pushed me to work even harder. I always did my own thing and my mentors wanted me to join the crowd. So I did. I had never been part of a group before. And we did our best to make it work, but I knew I wanted more. So I took a chance on doing something completely different. And it has paid off in the last ten years. Tonight there is no clowning. This ringleader will be at the center of the final. “
