Masked Singer: White Tiger Returns to the Jungle After Super 9 Take the Stage — Who Was Revealed?

After weeks of hearing about The Masked Singer‘s almighty Super Nine, the top three performers from Groups A, B and C finally took the stage on Wednesday’s April Fools-themed episode.

Host Nick Cannon reintroduced the competitors and offered new clues about each group. Group A — Kangaroo, Turtle and White Tiger — have a combined 15.4 million Instagram followers. Group B’s Banana, Frog and Kitty have all been interviewed by Oprah Winfrey, and Astronaut, Night Angel and Rhino of Group C racked up seven Grammy nominations between the three of them.

During the clue packages, the disguised celebs offered a super clue, and once their performance wrapped, they cleared up a rumor that might’ve fooled the viewers and judges about them by sharing what they’re not. Then after each set of three masked stars sang, the audience voted on their least favorite performance from every group. White Tiger came in last for Group A after singing “I’m Too Sexy,” Banana fell to the bottom in Group B, and Rhino’s Jonas Brothers cover made him Group C’s loser.

When Robin Thicke offered up his guess of Billy Ray Cyrus for Banana, the “Blurred Lines” singer noted that he once performed with one of Cyrus’ daughters and commented on the infamous black and white striped suit he wore while shaking it with Miley at the 2013 VMAs. “I was supposed to be a referee,” Thicke claimed.

At the end of the night, panelists Ken Jeong, Jenny McCarthy, Nicole Scherzinger and Thicke decided which of the bottom three singers would get sent home. Banana and Rhino lived to fight another day, meaning White Tiger did not prove to be king. Judges and viewers alike had been suggesting former New England Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski was under the White Tiger costume — and they scored a touchdown with that guess.

“Thank you guys,” the retired NFL pro, 30, told the panel after being unmasked. “I enjoyed every performance in front of you guys. I love you guys so much. I’m just so thankful to be here. Legends right in front of my eyes.”
