The bee is one of the contestants on The Masked Singer who continues to cause confusion. Just when viewers think they have it all figured out, new clues surface, causing more confusion than clarity.

This afternoon, FOX released a new clue for the bee and they shared tennis balls – two of them on a marble table top.

In the second episode of the season, the bee revealed that she had flown to soaring heights in her long career. This could indicate that she’s an older woman with plenty of experience in her field.

The celebrity reveals she loves what she does and she loves keeping busy as a worker bee. It helps her stay young. She also hints that people can call her the queen B, which happens to be Beyonce’s nickname.

The age thing comes up again, when the bee says that she looks forward to singing to a new generation of fans.

Viewers were quick to guess Gladys Knight, and this was a guess that seemed to dominate most of the guesses after week 2 of the competition But there are some other noteworthy guesses that we want to bring to the forefront – because how do tennis balls work into the Gladys Knight guess?

The voice seemed to cause some people to guess Mary J. Blige. Others felt they could recognize the voice, but didn’t really know who to pin down as the celebrity in question. Anita Baker and Jenifer Lewis were other guesses that were offered on Twitter.


Gladys Knight appears to be a common guess, but it’s clear that the bee is fooling everyone with her costume, her voice, her clues, and her song choices.

The Masked Singer airs Wednesdays at 9/8c on FOX.
