‘The Masked Singer’: Who Was the Kangaroo?

Yvette Nicole Brown also joined the judging panel.

The Masked Singer season three returned on Wednesday night with four of its top eight secret celebrities competing and dropping new hints about their real identities. In addition to clue videos, they also shared the “contents of their bags” as additional hints. Panelists Ken Jeong, Robin Thicke, Nicole Scherzinger and Jenny McCarthy were joined by Jeong’s former Community co-star Yvette Nicole Brown. Night Angel competed against Kangaroo, while Turtle competed against Astronaut. The loser from each pairing had to face off in a “smackdown” at the end of the episode to see who would be unmasked. Here’s who was revealed as well as the best guesses for who each masked singer could be.

The paired celebrities did their clue packages together. In Night Angel and Kangaroo’s, the latter was seen flossing. “It’s not secret that I started out in this competition as a ball of nerves,” the Kangaroo said. The reference to a ball could be another hint that she’s an athlete.

“Honestly, I may come off confident, but I have a secret: Kangaroo worries me,” Night Angel said. She slid a plate of desserts with the message “you’re going down” on it to the Kangaroo.

Night Angel sang “Man! I Feel Like a Woman,” and in her bag, she had a snow globe, a peacock, a tiara and a bee. Jeong again guessed it was Taraji P. Henson, which was a pretty solid guess. Scherzinger guessed it was Keke Palmer, and Brown thought it was Vanessa Williams.

Kangaroo sang “No Air,” and her bag contained Big Ben, a record player, lipstick and a ship in a bottle. She dropped a new clue: “This show is the first time I’ve ever sung in front of anyone.” Thicke guessed it was La La Anthony, and Jeong guessed Keira Knightley, which seems unlikely. Scherzinger guessed Blac Chyna, and Brown threw out Ayesha Curry, which was a strong guess.

In the Turtle and Astronaut clue package, they hinted that they are mirrors of each other in the competition, bringing up the fact that the panelists have sometimes made the same guesses for each of them. Scherzinger thought both of them could be Zac Efron. Turtle said that he has had his fair share of heartbreak. “In real life, I’m a shy guy,” the Astronaut said.

Astronaut sang “If I Can’t Have You” by Shawn Mendes, and his bag had a lit-up light bulb, an accordion, a plane and the White House in it. “I’m an open book, now it’s your job to unearth who I am,” he said, emphasizing the word “unearth.” McCarthy thought it was Ben Platt, which the clues do fit with. Jeong guessed it was Seth Green, and Scherzinger guessed Austin Mahone.

Closing out the performances, Turtle sang “Let It Go” by James Bay, and his bag featured cologne, a gavel and a baseball glove. It also had a tag on it that said “Never Keep Open This Bag,” a potential hint to the boy band New Kids on the Block. But there was also an arrow, which could hint at One Direction. McCarthy guessed Adam Lambert, which was a strong guess. Brown followed the NKOTB hint and guessed it was Joey McIntyre. Jeong thought it could be Niall Horan.

The bottom two — Kangaroo and Astronaut — had to then go up against each other in the smackdown. Kangaroo sang “Hot Stuff” by Donna Summer, and Astronaut sang “Bye Bye Bye” by NSYNC.

After the vote, the Kangaroo was eliminated and had to unmask. The panel made their final guesses: Cat Deeley (Jeong), La La Anthony (Thicke), Blac Chyna (Scherzinger), Jordyn Woods (McCarthy) and Ayesha Curry (Brown). In the end, she revealed that McCarthy was correct. Jordyn Woods was under the mask.

Due to quarantine and social distancing guidelines, people feel more disconnected than ever. However, music always brings people together, so Ilse DeLange and Michael Schulte’s collaboration couldn’t have dropped at a more opportune time. In this Dutch/German team-up, “Wrong Direction” brings two artists together to lyrically discuss the disconnect in a relationship — oh, the irony. “Wrong Direction” finds the perfect balance between nostalgia and modernity, composed of a comforting, country-pop melody layered with fresh, alternating vocals that complement each other beautifully. They just don’t make duets like this anymore — simple, classic, effortless. Just the thing we need right now. —Sarina Bhutani

World of Dance Shakes Things Up With ‘Blind Battle’ and More Game-Changing Twists in Season 4 — Meet All 34 Acts

NBC’s World of Dance is undergoing a few programming tweaks ahead of its fourth season premiere (May 26, 10/9c).

First up is the addition of a “Qualifier Twist.” During the audition process, contestants will think they’re performing one last time for producers, only to discover that the Qualifiers have already begun, and the judges — Jennifer Lopez, Derek Hough and NE-YO — will determine whether they continue in the competition.

The show is also introducing a “Callback Vote,” which will allow the judges to see an act perform one more time to determine whether they should proceed to the next round. As for the Duels round, the judges will now decide which acts face off, and the acts won’t know until they meet on the dance floor for a “Blind Battle.”

Lastly, the Redemption round is also undergoing a pretty major change. Per NBC, “This season’s redemption will be decided by a special surprise guest judge who will choose which two acts up for elimination will go head-to-head to earn the final slot in the Semi-Final.”

Turns Out, Kelly Ripa Has Been Quarantining in the Caribbean This Whole Time, and People Aren’t Happy

Uh-oh, looks like Kelly Ripa has been telling her fans a bit of a fib and they are not pleased. The Live With Kelly and Ryan host was revealed to have been quarantining in the Caribbean instead of in New York City, where she usually lives and films her talk show, according to People. Of course, there’s nothing inherently wrong with quarantining on a beautiful island, but lying about it to your loyal viewers makes this “fib” a bit harder to forgive.

The family was apparently vacationing on a Caribbean island when they got orders from ABC to shelter in place and, as a result, decided to stay. The news was shared by a fellow ABC employee after Ripa shared her story in a virtual town hall meeting for ABC employees.

“We had planned a trip for our family, and it was supposed to be our entire family, of course,” said Ripa, according to a source who attended the virtual town hall. “And we arrive and three days later, the entire world changed, really. I mean, everything shut down; the government shut down; our country shut down. I hate to use the word stuck, but we were. We decided to stay where we were.”

After getting “stuck,” the talk show host and her husband, Mark Consuelos, and their three adult children have stayed put in the Caribbean. And fans had a lot to say about their quarantine experience on Twitter.

But several reports agree that it wasn’t about where Ripa was staying, rather about her representing herself as being in New York when she obviously wasn’t.

Although, some Twitter users have called out the fact that it was actually responsible of Ripa and her family to stay put where they were when the quarantine rules went into place, instead of traveling and potentially contributing to the spread of coronavirus.

Although the timeline of Ripa’s trip to the Caribbean looks questionable, at best, the general consensus seems like all this could’ve been avoided if Ripa had said from the get-go that she was in the Caribbean.
