The Masked Singer Spoilers! Who is The Lion?

The Masked Singer spoilers! Everyone is talking about The Masked Singer, a new celebrity talent competition on Fox. The twist on this show is that everyone performs with their faces hidden by elaborate masks. Well, elaborate costumes. The performers all look like wild sports mascots who can sing.

A panel of four judges, consisting of Ken Jeong, Jenny McCarthy, Nicole Scherzinger and Robin Thicke, all watch the performances and have to guess the identities of the singer. They’re working off performance styles and clues the each singer drops about their personality and career.

So far, five singers have been unmasked. Judges thought they were going to see Shaqille O’Neill when the Hippo’s mask came off but it was Steeler’s receiver Antonio Brown instead. When it came time for the Pineapple to show his face, the popular guess was Jim Carrey. But Carrey’s ex Jenny McCarthy knew better: she figured out that it was Tommy Chong on stage. 

For the Deer, at first, the judges had mixed guesses, until Robin noticed how the Deer laughed with his shoulders saying how it was very specific to Terry Bradshaw's laughing style — which he ended up guessing correctly. When it was the Poodle's turn to unmask itself, the judges were all way off guessing from Kathy Griffin to Jillian Michaels. But they discovered it was Margret Cho. And last week, Ken Jeong correctly guessed that the Unicorn was none other than Beverly Hills 90210 alum Tori Spelling.

Who is the Lion on The Masked SingerWe don’t know who will be revealed next but fans are already making guesses. Check out our guesses in the mean time about the Unicornthe Poodlethe Alienthe Bee, and the Peacock.

1. Clues

The Lion admits to being "Hollywood royalty" and talks about stepping away from her pride for a chance to shine, which judges take to mean performing apart from her family. The Lion also comments that her pride is full of women and that she will be showing herself for the first time, without preconceived notions about her.

In the latest episode, the Lion revealed that she is used to the paparazzi and flashing lights. She is a social activist, especially for the LGBTQ community and human rights. In her video package, she is holding a newspaper that reads "Gold Found in Hailey!"

During her review of her performance, she was asked if she had any platinum or gold records. She responds that she does not have any of those things yet.

2. Judge guesses

The judges had a lot of different ideas for who this could be. Jenny McCarthy suggested Lady Gaga. Nicole Scherzinger leaned toward Mel B. Robin Thicke wondered if it might be a member of Fifth Harmony, or possibly Michelle Williams or Kelly Rowland.  

In Episode 3, after the Lion's performance, Nicole now believes that Lion is not a professional singer. However, Robin disagreed, saying her voice sounds like that of a "seasoned singer," suggesting she might be an older signer. 

Check it out for yourself. Here's the Lion's latest performance of Nina Simone’s “Feeling Good.”

3. Other guesses

Fan theories are just as diverse as the judges' guesses. Some ideas that have floated around the internet are Kendall Jenner, Paris Jackson, and Katy Perry. On Twitter, many believe that she could be Carrie Underwood.

4. Best guess

The top guess is Rumer Willis. The daughter of Bruce Willis and Demi Moore is certainly Hollywood royalty, and with her mom and two sisters, she comes from a family loaded with women.

She is also seen sporting a lion tattoo and her birthday falls on the sign of the Leo, the lion. This might be her chance to show a side of herself fans haven’t seen because of her parents’ famous shadow. And Rumer is a seriously good singer all on her own, just like the Lion.

Do you think the Lion is Rumer Willis?
