The Masked Singer returned tonight with all new performances from Group C as the masked celebrities tried to impress guest panelist Joel McHale. Those who made it through tonight go on to sing once more for the chance to make it into the Super Nine.
Tonight, Swan, Rhino, Astronaut, T-Rex, and Night Angel battled it out to stay in the game
It was ultimately Swan who was unmasked and sent home. Once again, The Masked Singer panelists — Robin Thicke, Jenny McCarthy, Ken Jeong, Nicole Scherzinger, and guest panelist Joel McHale — had no idea who was under the mask.
The Masked Singer panelists had some good guesses
None of The Masked Singer panelists could guess that it was actor and model Bella Thorne who had been Swan this season. She hinted at a long career on stage and screen and that she was not used to performing on stage as a singer. She also gave a hint that she knew and loved panelist Ken Jeong.
Robin Thicke guessed that Swan was actress Nina Dobrev, who is well known for starring on The Vampire Diaries and appeared in Then Came You with Ken Jeong.
Ken Jeong himself guessed his Ride Along 2 co-star, Olivia Munn.
Nicole Scherzinger went with Megan Fox, because of the possible Transformer and vampire references, while Jenny McCarthy landed on Kristen Stewart because of the vampire and (Charlie’s) angel references.
Joel McHale decided on Black Swan star Mila Kunis as his guess this time.
How do the clues line up with Bella Thorne?
Swan was revealed to be actress Bella Thorne. Obviously, her first name and costume were easy clues, references, and red herrings from the Twilight book and film series that featured protagonist Bella Swan.

Thorne and Ken Jeong co-starred in the comedy, The Duff. Thorne revealed that she decided to appear on the show when she saw that Ken was guessing her as the celebrity under the flamingo costume in Season 2 (who turned out to be Adrienne Bailon).
Bella Thorne joins previously unmasked singers Sarah Palin (Bear), Tom Bergeron (Taco), Dionne Warwick (Mouse), Tony Hawk (Elephant), Chaka Khan (Miss Monster), Drew Carey (Llama), and Lil’ Wayne (Robot) as eliminated contestants this season.
Astronaut, Rhino, T-Rex, and Night Angel go on to compete in the Group C finals next week.
The Masked Singer airs Wednesdays at 8/7c on FOX.
