On the latest episode of The Masked Singer, the judges were shocked and in awe when the rabbit performed. And it didn’t take long for viewers to start guessing who was behind the mask.
The introduction to the rabbit actually dropped some major clues. Not only did the person — a man — feel comfortable on stage and know how to sing, he also said that he would “pop up” here and pop up there.
In the end, he said he knew how to perform in a group, and when the rabbit concluded his intro, he said, “it’s gonna be me.”
Immediately, viewers started guessing that it was someone from NSync. Lance Bass and Chris Kirkpatrick were names that were guessed on The Masked Singer’s YouTube video, but Gold Derby predicts that it is Joey Fatone. Even Vulture guessed the same thing.

Even the white costume the rabbit is wearing is similar to the straight jacket that the band wore in their music video for I Drive Myself Crazy. No one has guessed Justin Timberlake, as he has been on tour with his newest album, Man of the Woods, and everyone seems to have forgotten about JC Chasez.
On Twitter, people had plenty of guesses as to who was behind the mask and Joey Fatone appeared to be a common guess. But someone also brought up the possibility that it could be someone from New Kids On The Block or Nick Lachey, who performed in the group 98 Degrees.
While we cannot with absolutely certainty say that Joey Fatone is indeed the performer behind the mask, there’s no doubt that most people definitely think it is him.
The Masked Singer airs Wednesdays at 9/8c on FOX.
