Spoiler alert! The following contains spoilers from the Nov. 18 episode of “The Masked Singer,” including the identity of the unmasked celebrities.
Things are getting real. During the Group B finals on Wednesday’s “Masked Singer,” viewers had to say goodbye to not just one, but two stars in costume.
Seahorse, Crocodile, Whatchamacallit and Serpent left it all on the stage for a chance to join Sun and Popcorn (from Group A) in the Super Six.
In-house investigators Ken Jeong, Jenny McCarthy, Nicole Scherzinger and Robin Thicke were joined by guest panelist actress Cheryl Hines, who also appears on the panel of Fox’s “I Can See Your Voice,” which Jeong hosts.
Following this week’s performances, clues were delivered by former “Masked Singer” contestants who are in some way connected to the current challengers.

Clues: Tips to Seahorse’s identity were given by her spiritual adviser, who remembered his first meeting with the challenger, then a “girl next door with just a backpack and a guitar, ready to work.” Fried chicken in a container labeled Nashville, two baby dolls and a Christmas wreath were highlighted in the piece.
Seahorse tried to convince the panel to still believe in her singing capabilities, throwing it back with Britney Spears‘ “…Baby One More Time.” The performance was spot on! Brit Brit, is it you under there? Seahorse killed it!
After Seahorse killed it, Astronaut (revealed to be Hunter Hayes in Season 3) appeared with a foam finger bearing script that divulged: “Seahorse was never in a girl group!”
Guesses: McCarthy thought of “TiK ToK” artist Kesha. Hines envisioned “American Idol” alum Kellie Pickler, while Jeong brought “Chandelier” singer Sia into the mix.

Clues: An “interviewer to the stars” dropped clues as to what celeb lay beneath Crocodile’s scales.
“We’ve been all around the world together,” Croc’s mystery friend revealed. “Once, we traveled to six continents in 100 hours.” Video games, a house of cards and a toy boat were also showcased in the package.
Following Croc’s rendition of Leona Lewis’ “Bleeding Love,” Bee, the costume of legend Gladys Knight, who competed during the series’ premiere season, entered the stage to reveal: “Croc was in a huge cult classic movie!”
Guesses: Jeong pictured Thirty Seconds to Mars front man Jared Leto, while Scherzinger thought of Jordan Knight of New Kids on the Block. Thicke went with the first “American Idol” runner-up, Justin Guarini.

Clues: Whatchamacallit introduced his high school teacher/mentor, who shared the star avoided mischief. “He had a good head on his shoulders, very focused and hard-working, but he could still surprise you,” said Whatchamacallit’s acquaintance. Also, there seems to be significance to a coffee pot, a crown and ping pong paddles and balls.
Whatchamacallit tried to get his audience to “Lean Back,” performing the hit by Terror Squad, featuring Fat Joe and Remy Ma. After getting people to do “the rockaway,” Whatchamacallit was joined by Ice Cream, embodied by YouTube gamer Tyler “Ninja” Blevins during Season 2. Ice Cream held up a piece of sash that revealed, “Whatcha’s already won a championship.”
Guesses: Jeong thought he had a slam dunk with his guess, NBA player Lonzo Ball. Scherzinger also tried to make nothing but net with Carmelo Anthony of the Portland Trail Blazers. Hines bet on her “Curb Your Enthusiasm” co-star J.B. Smoove.
