‘The Masked Dancer’ recap: Zebra eliminated, revealed as celebrated athlete

Zebra spotlighted “KO” in a few of his clue packages, but he was the one getting knocked out in Wednesday’s Masked Dancer semifinals.

It wasn’t a sad farewell though, as the competitors and panelists very much leaned into the chummy Valentines Day vibes (they love that word on TMD) tonight. Joining the lovefest was Lego Masters host Will Arnett, who sat alongside Ashley Tisdale, Paula Abdul, Brian Austin Green, and Ken Jeong as a guest.

Then Cotton Candy went solo and took the stage, performing to 2 Unlimited’s “Get Ready (2013 Version)” and then the classic “Hey Mickey.” Last week she was the first contestant to utilize the backstage for her number, and now she’s the first to perform to two different songs in one dance. And that cartwheel! I think Tisdale and Abdul are right in thinking Cotton Candy’s a gymnast.

Cotton Candy then presented an on-stage clue in the form of a Valentine for Arnett, saying that he gave her love on The Masked Singer. As he had guessed T-Rex was Tara Lipinski when he appeared on the series (she turned out to be JoJo Siwa), Arnett once again went with the figure skater.

Sloth then brought up the energy to 100, with a partner dance set to Sam Smith and Normani’s “Dancing With a Stranger.” Never thought I’d say this, but that Sloth wearing the glittery tuxedo jacket and formal shorts really can dance.

Jeong made me cackle for the first time on this show, with his rebuttal to Green’s point about Maksim Chmerkovkiy not being Sloth because he spotted the pro-dancer outside of filming. Read from source….
