FHThe Masked Singer is the best show on television. Period. And the best part of the current season is reading all The Masked Singer season 4 guesses the internet has to offer.
The Masked Singer, which is based on the South Korea’s The King of the Masked Singer, premiered in America in America in January 2019. The show is hosted by Nick Cannon and judged Ken Jeong, Jenny McCarthy, Nicole Scherzinger and Robin Thicke. But everyone knows that the real judges are the viewers at home. The concept for The Masked Singer is simple: Celebrities, who range from professional singers to athletes to reality TV stars, perform each week as the judges and the in-studio audience vote for their favorite singer. When a contestant is eliminated, he or she removes their mask to reveal their identity until there is only one mask left in the competition. That celebrity is declared the winner. Throughout the competition, The Masked Singer also gives fans clues via filmed packages before each contestant’s performance. Though, to be fair, these are almost never helpful, as the clues are always super cryptic and obscure. Still, that’s part of the fun! Ahead are our The Masked Singer season 4 guesses based on clues we know for each week. (Click here for other Masked Singer season 4 spoilers we know so far.)

Who is Baby Alien in The Masked Singer season 4? REVEALED
Second Performance: Eliminated
Song: “It’s Time” by Imagine Dragons
Revealed: Mark Sanchez
Clues: The Tony Award was a nod to him as a guest presenter at the Tonys in 2010. The hot dog was a reference to his famous NFL sideline moment when he ate a hot dog during a game. The roses were a nod to him leading the USC Trojans to win at the Rose Bowl as their MVP.
Correct judges: None
Song: “Faith” by George Michael
Clues: He’s “stuck in second gear.” He performed on stage. He’s been to the Tonys. Cheesesteak. He may have been a child star. His career had a “rebirth.” He can use puppets, which is how he can use the costume.
Guess: Jason Segel
The popular guess after Baby Alien’s first performance is Jason Segel. For one, Segel starred in the 2011 Muppets movie, so he has experience with using puppets. One commenter on YouTube even said that Baby Alien doesn’t seem like a skilled puppeteer because of how the mouth movements are off, so we think that rules out a professional, like Jeff Dunham, but it does lead toward someone who can use puppets. Baby Alien’s singing voice also sounds a lot like Segel’s voice in Muppets. The cheesesteak could also be a reference to Segel’s love of Philadelphia, which he’s talked about a lot since he filmed Dispatches From Elsewhere. “Stuck in second gear”….we’re not too sure about, but it could be reference to how Segel’s show, How I Met Your Mother, has been compared to Friends. Segel has also starred in Friends With Benefits. The only part we’re not so sure about are the Tonys, but hopefully The Masked Singer will give us more clues for that later on.
Quote: “All you have to do is look to the stars.”
Clues: Constellation forming the number five shows in the sky.
Guess: Jeff Dunham
The pre-premiere guess is ventriloquist Jeff Dunham based on how the costume works. From the preview, Baby Alien’s mouth seems to move at a different time than his voice, which made fans wonder if a ventriloquist, such as Dunham, is under the mask.
Who is Crocodile on The Masked Singer season 4?
Song: “Toxic” by Britney Spears
Clues: Pirate flag. Hairspray. Oranges. 30Croc. Shazam. The number 5. Pinata/ Little dolphins. “I just cracked the case wide open because this clue has an important porpoise to it.”
Guess: Nick Carter
After Crocodile’s performance of Britney Spears’ “Toxic,” it’s even more clear now that he’s Nick Carter. His clue package showed the number 5, which could be a nod to the Backstreet Boys’ five members. The package also showed Crocodile standing on a tree stump and singing into grass, which Carter said he used to do as a kid in his book. “In the old house where I used to live, there was this old tree stump. It wasn’t that tall, and I was a small kid. I stood up on it and I sang to the grass. I would pretend I was singing in a huge arena. And my mom caught me singing one day, and that’s when I started taking singing lessons. All that happened when I was nine,” he wrote. The package also showed screaming girls all around him, which could be BSB’s fans.
Song: “It’s My Life” by Bon Jovi
Clues: Lover’s Lagoon. He’s happiest in water. He grew up in Hollywood. An Italian flag. He had a reputation for being cold blooded. A hotel. He needed tough skin to survive. A pineapple.
Guess: Nick Carter
The judges guessed former boybanders, like Nick Lachey and Donnie Wahlberg, but our money is on Nick Carter. For one, the voice and dance moves seem a lot like the Backstreet Boys member. Here are some other clues that make sense: Carter is part Italian (the Italian flag); he was fun of for his pineapple-looking hair when he was a BSB member (pineapple); he’s grown up in the entertainment industry with his younger brother, Nick Carter. The water references could be a reference to the Backstreet Boys’ profitable cruises, while the the hotel reference could be a nod to Carter’s famous ex-girlfriend, Hilton Hotels heiress Paris Hilton.
Quote: “A special set of keys reversed my game forever. Tic-tac-whoa.”
Clues: Tic-tac-toe games.
Guess: Neil Patrick Harris
We still don’t know what the “keys” or “tic-tac-toe” reference is, but the popular pre-premiere guess for Crocodile is Neil Patrick Harris. There’s not much to the guess other than costume seems like something Harris would wear for The Masked Singer. The actor can also sing, as seen in his roles on Broadway musicals like Cabaret and Hedwig and the Angry Inch.
Who is Gremlin on The Masked Singer season 4? REVEALED
First Performance: Eliminated
Song: “Stand by Me” by Ben E. King
Revealed: Mickey Rourke
Clues: The iron ins the clues video was reference to his role as Ivan Vanko/Whiplash in Oron Man 2. His love for cooking was a nod to his pen name, Sir Eddie Cook, which he’s used in several films.
Correct judges: Jenny
Quote: “Check the gremlin manual and you’ll see, I can thrive when the temperature is a cool 66.5 degrees.”
Guess: Alfonso Ribeiro
There aren’t a lot of popular guesses for Gremlin, but one YouTube comment predicts that the character could be Fresh Prince of Bel-Air alum Alfonso Ribeiro based completely on the character’s voice. While The Masked Singer distorts the voices of its contestants, fans think that the tone still matches closely with Ribeiro’s. Ribeiro was also a contestant on the 2006 show Celebrity Duets, so fans know he has a voice in hime.
Who is Seahorse on The Masked Singer season 4?
Song: “My Heart Will Go On” by Celine Dion
Clues: No cracked smile. Daisy dukes. Green light. Clown. Fail. Dream is a wish your heart makes. Clocks with wings at 9 o’clock. Thousand years. Southern. Balloon. Feathers. “Light as a feather, heavy on clues, this should help you not confuse.”
Guess: Tori Kelly
Once again, all signs point to Tori Kelly. The 9 o’clock on the clocks shown in the clue package could be a nod to Kelly’s audition on season 9 of American Idol. The “Dream is a wish your heart makes,” a lyric from Cinderella, could be a reference to Kelly’s win at the Radio Music Disney Awards in 2016 for Breakout Artist of the Year. The feathers could also be a nod to her feather logo on her past albums.
Song: “Only Girl in the World” by Rihanna
Clues: Hogwarts. She’s a diva. Emotion ocean. Stuffed animals. A rainbow frog. Tea party. A western theme.
Guess: Tori Kelly
Though Seahorse doesn’t sound that much like Tori Kelly, a lot of clues point to her. The tea party could be a reference to “Quarantea with Tori,” her Instagram show where she performs songs. In 2016, Kelly also sang “Rainbow Connection” with Kermit the Frog, which could be a nod to the rainbow frog. In the package, Seahorse also talks about how she often wants to “find a place to hide,” which may be a nod to her 2018 album, Hiding Place. The singer is also a self-proclaimed Harry Potter superfan, so that would explain the Hogwarts reference.
Quote: “Living in the ocean can be dangerous, so it’s always good to find a quiet place to hide.”
Guess: Emily Blunt
To be honest, Emily Blunt may be too big of a star for The Masked Singer, but it’s season 4, anything can happen. In the teaser, Seahorse references a “quiet place,” which fans think could be a nod to Blunt’s 2018 movie A Quiet Place. We also know Blunt can sing, as seen in her role in 2018’s Mary Poppins Returns.
Who is Serpent on The Masked Singer season 4?
Song: “The Bones” by Maren Morris
Clues: Rent. Doctor. He sold clothes. He did manual labor. Pink Cadillac. Croissant Trophy. “This baby bottle should get your wheels turning.”
Guess: Leslie Odom Jr.
Again, we think Serpent is Hamilton alum Leslie Odom Jr. Once again, the package showed a medicine reference—scrubs—which may be a nod to his role as doctor in Murder on the Orient Express. The baby bottle could be a nod to how Odom Jr. has a young one at home, a 3-year-old daughter named Lucille Ruby. The “rent” could be a reference to how he performed “Without You” from Rent at a concert in January 2020.
Song: “I’m Gonna Be (500 Miles)” by The Proclaimers
Clues: Musicology. Medicine. He’s a trouble maker. His dad is a senior and he’s a junior. A book titled How to Be a Good Serpent.
Guess: Leslie Odom Jr.
We stand strong that Serpent is Leslie Odom Jr. (which was also Nicole’s guess.) For one, the junior reference in the clues video makes sense. Second, the medicine references could be a nod to his role as a doctor in Murder on the Orient Express. Finally, the book that appears—How to Be a Good Serpent—could be a reference to Odom’s inspirational books. In 2018, he published a self-help book titled, Failing Up: How to Take Risks, Aim Higher, and Never Stop Learning.
Quote: “If you want to know how I instantly appeared, here’s the prescription number to my identity”
Clues: Prescription bottle with “31118” on its label on an older model television set.
Guess: Leslie Odom Jr.
A popular pre-premiere guess for Serpent is Hamilton star Leslie Odom Jr. We already know he can sing, so that’s a plus for The Masked Singer. As for the prescription bottle, fans think it could be a reference to Dr. Arbuthnot, Odom’s character in 2017’s Murder on the Orient Express.
Who is Watchamacallit on The Masked Singer season 4?
Song: “Money Maker” by Ludacris (Feat. Pharrell)
Clues: 36, 524. The movie Up. Shoe phone. 10 cents.
Guess: Lonzo Ball
The new guess for Watchamacallit is New Orleans Pelicans player Lonzo Ball. For one, Ball is 6’6″, so he matches Watchamacallit’s stature. Also, viewers have noted that Ball’s mom had a stroke when he was at UCLA. He wanted to stop playing, but she encouraged him to continue, which was something that Watchamacallit also talked about.
Song: “I Wish” by Skee-lo
Clues: He’s tall. Jello. People think he’s shy because others absorb the spotlight. Candy bars. Bees. A clock with pants and shrimp. Swinging keys. Dancing With the Stars.
Guess: Michael Sam
A popular guess among fans is former NFL player Michael Sam. For one, Sam is tall (6’2″), so he fits Watchamacallit’s stature. He was also on season 20 of Dancing With the Stars. There was also a rainbow in clue video, which fans think could be a nod to him being in the LGBTQ+ community.
Quote: “Some might say my career had a magical start.”
Clues: Ace of hearts playing card catching fire.
Guess: Criss Angel
Based on the “magic” in the quote and the card catching on fire, Watchamacallit has to be a magician. But who? A popular pre-premiere guess is Criss Angel, who was the lead singer of the band Angeldust, so he could surprise fans with his singing chops.
Who are Snow Owls on The Masked Singer season 4?
Song: “Like I’m Gonna Lose You” by Meghan Trainor and John Legend
Clues: The male owl went through a messy breakup. D. Anchor. “DAL” Basketball. A bounce house. The female owl took a leap of faith. Witch’s hat. “We will tip our hat to whichever one of you figures out the clue.”
Guess: Clint Black and Lisa Hartman Black
For the Snow Owls’ first performance, the owls, for the most part, sang at the same time, so it was hard to distinguish their voices. With their second performance, fans are sure it’s couple Clint Black and Lisa Hartman Black. Clint is a country singer, so you can hear a lot of his signature “crackle” in his voice. The witch’s hat is a nod to Lisa’s role in the Bewitched spin-off Tabitha. The “DAL” on the basketball is a reference to Dallas, Texas. Both Clint and Lisa are from Texas. Their first clue package also showed a pearl, which is a nod to their daughter, Lilly Pearl Black. The male owl also said he’s known as a prankster, which could be a nod to Clint’s time on 2008’s Secret Talents of the Stars, where he performed stand-up. As for the Christmas references, those are nods to Clint singing the title track to 1998’s Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer movie.
Song: “Say Something” by Great Big World
Clues: Fans haven’t seen them together in a while. They’re brother and sister. The brother is a prankster. Snow. Christmas. A rose.
Guess: Derek and Julianne Hough
Hear us out: Snow Owls could be Derek and Julianne Hough. We know that they’re both singers. Derek released a single, “Hold On,” in 2017, while Julianne released a self-titled album in 2008. The snow could be a reference to how the siblings grew up in Salt Lake City, while the rose could be a nod to their ballroom careers. (Think about the rose that dancers put in their mouth when they do the tango.) Derek is also known for the pranks he pulls. He even Punk’d his sister in 2012. It’s also been years since the two were on Dancing with the Stars at the same time, either as judges or as professional dancers. Finally, as fans saw, the Snow Owls stand in an egg when they sing. While it could be just a design decision, we think that it could be to hide a significant height difference between the two. Julianne is 5’3″ while while Derek is 5’10”. Plus, Derek was Nicole’s professional dancer on DWTS, so we’re sure the producers are planning for a dramatic reveal.
Quote: “You can try and figure out who we are, but as for who is more talented, it’s a tie.”
Clue: Wood barn in the countryside.
Guess: Donny and Marie Osmond
Based on the eyelashes on one Owl, fans suspect that Snow Owls are a man and a woman, which means that they’re either siblings or a couple. A popular pre-premiere guess is siblings Donny and Marie Osmond, who grew up in the mountains in Utah. (Could be a reference to the countryside?) Fans also think that the costume seems something that would fit the Snow Owls. The owls’ costume show them hatching from an egg, which could be a reference to how they’re related.
Who is Sun on The Masked Singer season 4?
Song: “Praying” by Kesha
Clues: Grew up in a fractured home. Spider in an hourglass. The woods. Butterfly heart. Whiz. Immaterial girls. Ugly rumors. Candy canes
Guess: LeeAnn Rimes
Who are we kidding? Sun is LeeAnn Rimes. The Christmas references (a.k.a. the candy canes) are nods Rimes’ Hallmark Christmas movies and her 2015 holiday album, Today Is Christmas. The butterfly could be a reference to her butterfly tattoo. The woods could be a nod to her country roots (which Nicole thought referred to Carrie Underwood.) The Sun also talked about rumors, which could reference her and her husband Eddie Cibrian’s romance while Cibrian was still married to his ex-wife, Brandi Glanville. Brandi even tweeted after the Sun’s second performance thinking it’s her. “I think the sun is 100 percent Leann Rimes #maskedsinger although my kids say no way because she told them that she would never do this show because its sooo beneath her,” she tweeted.
Song: “Cuz I Love You” by Lizzo
Clues: Gold Member. Extreme seasons. Micky Mouse. Frozen. She was burnt out by the spotlight.
Guess: Demi Lovato
We agree with Jenny that Sun could be Demi Lovato. Here’s why: Lovato is a “Gold Member.” Her albums, including Don’t Forget, Here We Go Again, Unbroken and Demi have all been certified RIAA gold. So have several of her singles. The Micky Mouse could be a reference to her time on Disney Channel’s Camp Rock and Sonny With a Chance. Frozen could also be a nod to how Lovato sang the pop version of “Let It Go” on the 2013 Frozen soundtrack. The story for the mask makes sense too, as Lovato has had her ups and downs (extreme seasons) in the spotlight. Lovato, who released a single in March, also has an upcoming album, so The Masked Singer could be the perfect place to promote it. Another guess we have is Christina Aguilera who sounds a lot like Sun and was on the Micky Mouse Club.
Quote: “This sun knows how to shine like a torch even during the freezing winter.”
Guess: Lea Michele
In another teaser for the Sun, the character used the line “rain on my parade,” a reference to the song Barbra Streisand sang in the 1964 movie Funny Girl. Streisand is too on-the-nose, but fans think it could be Michele, who also sang “Rain on My Parade” in a 2009 episode of Glee and has cited Streisand as her inspiration. It would all make sense…if Michele wasn’t pregnant now. But it’s The Masked Singer, who knows?
Who is Popcorn on The Masked Singer season 4?
Song: “Falling” by Harry Styles
Clues: Soap opera. She had a condition where she couldn’t eat or sleep. Hair crimper. Rubik’s Cubes. ’80s. Venus. “The second rock from the sun is far away, but it should bring you closer to me.”
Guess: Taylor Dayne
Though it’s still a tossup between Cyndi Lauper and Taylor Dayne, more fans seem to think Popcorn is Dayne, a singer who was famous in the ’80s for songs like “Tell It to My Heart” and “I’ll Always Love You.” So that explains the ’80s references like the hair crimper and the Rubik’s cube. Dayne is also from New York, which explains the Sex and the City reference from her first package.
Song: “What About Us” by Pink
Clues: Snacks and the City. She made her career out love. She worked long nights from one job to the next. Vogue. She’s friends with royalty. She’s from New York. A tiger. Hoop earrings. Proud Merry.
Guess: Cyndi Lauper
Though Popcorn’s thick New York accent could be a sound effect, it could also be real. Lauper, who was born and raised in Brooklyn, is as New York as they come. Her 1986 song, “True Colors,” was also performed in 2010’s Sex and the City 2, which could be a reference to the Snacks and the City. Though Lauper doesn’t seem to be friends with any real royal family members, she was good friends with Prince, so the royal clue could be a round-about reference to that relationship. The other clues…we’re not so sure.
Quote: “When you watch my onscreen performance it will be in 3D: dynamic, delightful, and diva-licious. Mirror mirror on the wall, what makes me the biggest miracle of all?”
Clues: Picture of a green cow on a mirror on the wall; film shown in movie theater with “directed by Popcorn” credit.
Guess: Sofia Carson
The pre-premiere guess for Popcorn is Sofia Carson based on the “mirror” line. Carson played the Evil Queen’s daughter in Disney Channel’s Descendants. (The Evil Queen is known for the famous “mirror mirror on the wall” line from Snow white.) Fans also think that the general “vibes” of Popcorn seem similar to Carson, so we’ll take it!
Who is Giraffe on The Masked Singer season 4? REVEALED
Second Performance: Eliminated
Song: “Get Down in It” by Baby Kool & The Gang
Revealed: Brian Austin Green
Clues: The carnival theme was a reference to Green’s 1996 album One Stop Carnival. The robin on his shoulder was a nod to Robin Thicke, his best friend and neighbor. The raciing was a reference to him winning the Celebrity Grand Prix in 2010. The peaches were a nod to the Peach Pit in Beverly Hills, 90210. There was also a nod to Megan and Transformers, which referenced his ex-wife, Megan Fox, and her 2007 movie, Transformers.
Correct judges: None
Song: “Let’s Get It Started” by Black Eyed Peas
Clues: He’s tall. He’s had a roller coaster career. People made jokes about him. Races. Swing. Knots.
Guess: Vanilla Ice
We think Robin was on-the-nose with his guess of Vanilla Ice. Vanilla seems like the exact kind of person who would go on The Masked Singer to show that he’s more than a one-hit wonder. Though Vanilla had a hit with 1989’s “Ice Ice Baby,” he’s also talked about how the song has haunted him, with people making fun of how he was a one-trick pony. Vanilla is also pretty tall, at 6’0″.
Quote: “You should know I share something in common with a powerful giant”
Clues: Giant Giraffe walks past 10th Avenue in New York City, as a mob of Sims-looking people run away.
Guess: Payton Manning
The pre-premiere guess for Giraffe is NFL player Payton Manning, who is the older brother of Eli Manning (the giant in his quote.) Fans also think that his “move and groove” quote from another teaser is a reference to a football player who dances after a touchdown.
Who is Dragon on The Masked Singer season 4? REVEALED
First Performance: Eliminated
Song: “Mama Said Knock You Out” by LL Cool J
Revealed: Busta Rhymes
Clues: Dinosaur was a reference to his role as Reptar in the Rugrats Movie. The barbell was a nod to his physique and weight training passion.
Correct judges: Nicole and Robin.
Quote: “If you want a hot clue to finding my identity, just look into stocks and bonds.”
Clues: Stock market ticker
Guess: Dan Reynolds
This guess may be too on-the-nose, but a popular pre-premiere prediction is that Dragon is Imagine Dragons lead singer Dan Reynolds. In a pre-premiere preview, Dragon even used the phrase “imagine dragons,” so we’ll see what that’s about.
Who is Broccoli on The Masked Singer season 4?
Quote: “I’m a Broco-lean, mean, heart-pumping machine. After all, it’s how I got my six-pack.”
Clues: Broccoli was shown rubbing his stomach.
Guess: Seth Rogen
After Broccoli’s video clues were released, fans wondered if he was Seth Rogen based completely on his voice, so we’re running with that guess. Rogen even responded to The Masked Singer‘s official Twitter account, who tagged him in a fan’s clue. “Broccoli is @Sethrogen #TheMaskedSinger this is my official guess and I’m like 98% sure that I’m right,” the fan wrote, to which Rogen responded, “Are you fucking kidding me?” To be fair, he didn’t confirm or deny…
Who is Jellyfish on The Masked Singer season 4?
Quote: “I assure you that while I may be cold-blooded, I have a warm and glowing flow with H20.”
Clues: Jellyfish was shown strutting.
The pre-premiere consensus is that Jellyfish is WWE diva Naomi. Fans noted that the pattern on the character’s costume resembles Naomi’s ring gear. Not sure how the water clues fit in yet.
Who is Lips on The Masked Singer season 4?
Quote: “If you want a hint about me, I own who I am. I know my voice can go high, but my dishes go deep.”
Guess: Lisa Rinna
Soap star and Real Housewives of Beverly Hills cast member Lisa Rinna is known for her lips. She’s even had a RHOBH tagline about them: “You’ve heard a lot about me, but it’s only true when it comes from my lips” / “My lips were made for talkin’ and that’s just what they’ll do.” Bravo fans also know that her catchphrase is “own it,” which could be a reference to the “own who I am line” in her quote.
Who is Mushroom on The Masked Singer season 4?
Quote: “If you want to know who’s behind my mask, you’ll need to figure out who’s under my hats.”
Clues: Mushrooms in different hats.
Guess: Billy Porter
A lot of pre-premiere guesses predict that Mushroom has a dive-like voice. A popular guess is Broadway legend Billy Porter, who won a Tony in 2013 for his role in Kinky Boots. Porter is also known for his many red carpet hats at awards shows like Grammys, so that could also be a reference to the hats line.
Who is Squiggly Monster on The Masked Singer season 4?
Quote: “It’s very fitting that I have so many appendages. After all, I’m known for having a lot of hands to latch onto.”
Guess: Weird Al
There aren’t a lot of popular pre-premiere guesses for Squiggly Monster, but based on a YouTube, a couple fans have predicted Weird Al Yankovic, who is known for songs like “Eat It” and “White & Nerdy.” Perhaps Weird Al could surprise everyone with his voice, just like T-Pain in season 1.
