Flamingo was the first to perform out of the six masked contestants on last night’s Season 2 episode of The Masked Singer, titled Once Upon a Mask. Based on the clues she offered on the show, many fans believe she is Adrienne Bailon, a former member of The Cheetah Girls.

The six masked contestants on last night’s show were Flamingo, Black Widow, Butterfly, Leopard, Skeleton, and Thingamajig.

Flamingo performed a rousing cover of Kenny Loggins’ Footloose. Her performance earned praises from judges Ken Jeong, Jenny McCarthy, Nicole Scherzinger, and Robin Thicke. They all got on their feet with the audience to dance to the stirring tune.

McCarthy said she was “smiling so big” during Flamingo’s performance that her botox broke.

While Flamingo offered clues about her identity, viewers were shown a shot of old tires and a petrol station (gas station). She talked about how she went from being a “hoodrat” to “a Hollywood triple threat.”

“It reminds me of when I first started out and went from hoodrat to Hollywood triple threat,” she said.

“I come from humble beginnings with absolutely zero connections,” she said with a red apple in her hand, “Until one day, I was discovered by a powerful wizard, who plucked me off my stoop and led me into a dream.”

Viewers were then shown an old sign that read: “Los Angeles: No Exit.”

The judges tried to guess the celebrity behind Flamingo’s mask. McCarthy suggested it could be Adrienne Bailon. Nicole Scherzinger guessed that the “powerful wizard” who discovered Flamingo was the British TV producer and talent manager. Simon Cowell. She then guessed that Flamingo was Fifth Harmony’s, Ally Brooke.

Thicke suggested it could be the former Xscape member and The Real Housewives of Atlanta star, Kandi Burruss.

When asked to give another clue, Flamingo said that when she was younger she wanted to become a doctor. She added that she attended medical training school.

Regarding Scherzinger’s suggestion that it could be Fifth Harmony’s Ally Brooke, some fans argued that Brooke is currently on Dancing with the Stars, so it couldn’t be her.
