'The Masked Singer' Episode 5 Spoilers & Recap: All Performances and Clues, Plus Who Was Unmasked

"The Masked Singer" returns Wednesday at 9 p.m. EST. Check out our spoilers and live recap of episode 5 "Mix and Masks" including clues and guesses for who's behind the Unicorn, Lion, Rabbit and Alien Masks

The Masked Singer returns for its fourth episode Wednesday, January 23 to reveal yet another masked singer. Based on a Korean reality TV Series, King of Mask Singer, the American version became an instant hit with NBC viewers, drawn in by collective puzzling over the secret identities of the singers behind the masks. Episode five, Mix and Masks, aims to shake things up a bit, taking two performers from week one ( Unicorn and Lion) and pitting them against a pair of week two contestants (Rabbit and Alien). During tonight's episode, the singers will perform solo and as a group.

Episode one saw the first six contestants - Hippo, Unicorn, Lion, Deer, Monster, and Peacock take the stage with the Hippo being unmasked at the end as the Steelers' Antonio Brown . During Episode two, the next six contestants — Rabbit, Alien, Raven, Pineapple, Poodle and Bee — faced off against one another while also wearing elaborate head-to-toe costumes. At the end of the episode, the Pineapple received the lowest number of votes and was revealed to be Tommy Chong from the comedy duo Cheech and Chong. In episode three, the Deer got the lowest number of votes and, when unmasked, was identified as former NFL Quarterback and sports analyst Terry Bradshaw and in episode four viewers said goodbye to the Poodle who turned out to be comedian Margaret Cho.

Once the show begins, we'll be providing a live-blogged recap of everything that happens, including the clues given and songs performed by each of the masked contestants. You can also check out our earlier recaps and guesses for who might be behind the masks, here.

Episode 5 Clues:

  • Well howdy, friends, I've been working my tail off trying to keep you guessing about who I am and showing off my range is part of my master plan to throw you off.
  • I've done Latin Pop, then Country twang. Tonight I plan to try to confuse the judges again with some R&B
  • (In the video we see the Rabbit hiding behind a green trash can and then he disappears)
  • What can I say, I'm a trickster. I bounce here, I hop there and then I'm gone.
  • So chew on this (he is inside a building with a sign that says "Brooklyn Pizza Available") — I'm about to bust out all the old school moves.
  • If you think you're confused now, just wait.
  • Special Item Shown: Magician Kit - "It's another way I like to impress audiences."

What the Rabbit Sang: Poison by Bell Biv DeVoe

The judges love his performance and Jenny McCarthy says the Rabbit's performance definitely reminds her of a boy band. Though the Rabbit has a Magician's set as his special item, the judges don't think he's a professional magician. Ken thinks it's and 80's boy band member like Donnie Wahlberg. Jenny thinks Zack Brown.

  • Tonight I don't care what anyone thinks — I love who I am and I am proud of the hills where I come from.
