We’re episodes away from crowning a Masked Singer winner, with just four mysterious stars left to “take it off”.
Tonight, Julia Morris was unveiled as the celebrity lurking within the Kitten costume.
In a series first, Hughesy actually had it right – locking in Queen of the Jungle Morris despite fellow judges assuring him her back was far too injured to compete.
“I have got my back brace on,” Morris revealed as her Kitten head came off.
“I have seen the physio every second day since the show started. I am a proper mess.”
On Monday, Cactus yanked off her giant, adorable head to reveal musical theatre star Lucy Durack.
Do you think you know who the remaining singers are?
Follow our live coverage of tonight’s episode below.
There are just four masked celebs left. Who will be crowned this year’s winner?
We’ll be live blogging right here from 7.30 next Monday.
She reveals she wasn’t actually lying about her sore back, telling the judges she’s been seeing the physio every day since filming begin.
What a woman!
The judges lock in their final guesses.
Dannii: Chrissie Swan
Hughesy: Julia Morris
Jackie: Rebel Wilson
Urzila: Melissa McCarthy
It’s down to Kitten and Frillneck.
(Julia or Eddie?)
Singing Macklemore & Ryan Lewis’ Can’t Hold Us, it’s never been clearer that this is Eddie Perfect.
Ignoring the biggest clue: Eddie Perfect’s voice, Urzila thinks it’s Jemaine Clement.
His ‘celebrity connection’ clue: “Jack Black and I were both fascinated with the same incredible creature. But Jack’s exposure was a lot less than mine.”
Dannii goes with Todd McKenney, with Paul McDermott for Jackie O.
Hughesy, meanwhile, reckons it’s Tim Rogers.
“People don’t believe what I say about myself. They think I’m telling a whopper. But almost everything about me is real, except my work –
that’s as fake as anything.
“Kids see me for what I am.
“Even though others can’t see me at all. What a hoot.
“I’m an artist but what kind, exactly?
“I’m not quite sure myself but I do know that I have an active imagination. I can creative entire worlds.
“To do what I wanted to do I had to move far away, several times. No town is big enough for what I do.
” Let’s see if tonight’s stage is big enough for Frillneck!”
Bushranger serves up a smoky version of Lady Antebellum’s Need You Now.
The judges gush over the performance, and Urzila throws out her regular wild guess of Nicole Kidman.
Bushranger’s celebrity connection clue is: “Dylan Alcott is pretty tough so it might be no surprise that he and I once went head to head. And I came off second-best.”
Hughesy thinks it’s Kylie Minogue for reasons unknown, Jackie O names Jess Mauboy and Dannii locks in Nat Bass.
Meanwhile, viewers get their thinking (and Googling) caps on, convinced it’s singer and actress Bonnie Anderson.
“I’m a dreamer.
“But you achieve your dreams through hard work, even if it makes you sweat.
“Being rewarded for hard work is justice, and not many bushrangers talk about justice.
“I’m not afraid of competition. I’ll take on the world! I might never BE the one, but nothing ventured, nothing gained. Still, you can’t win ’em all.
“You’ve just got to take it day by day.
“Bushrangers never do what you expect. Surprise is important.
“It takes planning. Take my word.
” Right now, I have just one job – to stand tall and give my best. And that’s what I’m going to do.”
But before another adorable show, her clues tell us:
“I’m no opera singer. But being judged for my singing voice isn’t entirely new for me.
“Seeing it up close is never pleasant.
“They say when you do what you love, you never work a day in your life.
“Well, I like to bring people down a peg.
“Or play with their heart. Is that work? No! And nobody gets crabby with me.
“And I know that hard work and persistence will be rewarded eventually. That’s why I’m bigger now than I’ve ever been.
“Except in the past. Holy moly, it’s getting hot!”
She belts out Lesley Gore’s You Don’t Own Me.
Hughesy is 100% certain it’s Julia Morris.
He extra clue is: “Rachel Griffiths and I were in torrid competition with each other. I’m happy to say I lived to tell the tale.”
With Kate Miller-Heidke the beyond obvious choice, Jackie O is suspicious.
“I think everyone’s thinking Kate Miller-Heidke but I don’t think it is. I think it’s someone who wants us to believe it’s Kate Miller-Heidke but isn’t.”
It comes after Osher himself threw out a Kate Miller-Heidke reference last night, saying he “wants to be Queen’s friend on Facebook” – a reference to another Kate Miller-Heidke song.
Dannii thinks it’s Lorde, and Jackie O goes with Lisa from The Veronicas.
Urzila guesses Missy Higgins.
Queen’s additional clue tonight is: “When Jay-Z and I played the same gig, he was very persuasive… but I worked that crowd just as hard.”
