I don't put any value in the physical objects.  At least last year, I feel like at least a few of them were somewhat useful... I remember Donny Osmond's wig in "Joseph and the Amazing Technicolour Dreamcoat".  This season they are just completely random.  Could be just about anything.  The Butterfly's Forensic Kit?  "I wanted to be a detective when I grew up".  Patti's cards?  "I love playing cards with my grandchildren."

The scrunchie last year for Rumor was useless.  

The forensic kit does make sense. Before she decided to become a professional singer Michelle Williams was a criminal justice major.

I believe Wayne Brady does impressions, so that's what I thought of when he said the thing about many voices, not boy bands/groups.

I think you’re right about that. Wayne has talked about learning to copy others to get rid of his stutter.

He also said that he’s known for being part of a pack of talented fellas. “Not my voice alone.” It was probably a reference to Wayne Brady’s whose line co-stars. 

The Fox’s setlist included a song from Kinky Boots was Wayne has stared in on Broadway and the title of a song on his album.

Correct.  Patti is the "Godmother of Soul".

It's just like Jenny said, "prepare to be even more confused".

The soup and her comment about it for Tree makes sense, Ana Gasteyer first acting job was in the Soup Nazi episode of Seinfeld.

OK, so I guess it does make sense.  But what she said about it was something like "I once had a chance to choose between LIIIIIIIIIFFFFFEEEEE.... or DEEEEEAAAATTTTHHHH!"  Which is completely baffling.  I think the physical clues should be something that is a lot more instantly identifiable with someone.  Like maybe three headbands, indicating she was part of a trio.  Not something that relates to some obscure nugget in the person's past.

OK, that one is a little better.  She said she owes everything she has to a bowl of soup.  But still, when people think of her, they think of her SNL skits like Delicious Dish.  Not sure how many people would even remember she was in that episode.

I'm ready to go all in on Leopard being Seal now. There was a megaphone with the Australian flag on it in his package this week. He was a judge on The Voice Australia.

My out-of-left-field first-blush guesses:

  • White Tiger: Rob Gronkowsky (from what little I've seen of him, he sounds exactly like him, and a lot of the clues line up. Plus a lot of people who know him better than I do think it's him, and I'm not afraid to bend with the crowd.)
  • Turtle: Kel Mitchell (the burgers from the clue package could refer to "Good Burger", and the surfboard could represent the Nickelodeon Kid's Choice Award he won.)
  • Llama: Danny Bonaduce (pretty much the only famous disk jockey I can think off off-hand. But he did say that the costume is dressed pretty much how he dresses in real life, and that looks a lot like what Bonaduce wears IRL.)
  • Ms. Monster: Missy Elliott (I'm getting a rapper vibe from her, and "famous female rappers" is a far too short of a list to choose from. Might as well start at the top.)
  • Kangaroo: Melissa Benoist (the talk of being a "survivor", and going through tragedy this past year, brought her to mind, and her talk about "getting her superpowers back" helps point that way. The singing voice doesn't seem to match up quite right, but I haven't heard Melissa sing very much, so I don't have a lot to compare it to.)

I don't believe llama is Drew Carey, or Howard Stern. There was a 60s feeling in the clue package, plus the glasses etc, that makes me think older. Unless there is a 60s movie reference? We've already had Tommy Chong.

Could be Danny Bonaduce. He’s a better fit to a lot of the clues then Drew Carey.

I don’t think it’s Melissa. I don’t follow celeb gossip, but in the package it said she was in the spotlight for all the wrong reasons. I may be wrong, but I didn’t think she was doing anything that would be “wrong reasons”.  I also don’t think that sounds like her singing voice. I dint think her voice is so deep.

I'm definitely not married to the idea. Melissa's basically a placeholder in my list, because a few of the clues seemed to line up. Besides, I have a horrible track record this early in the game. I'm more than willing to wait 'til Wednesday to make a more definitive pick.

I'm sure Lllama is not Howard Stern.  I've heard him sing (albeit, it was rockabye baby and it was sung to a cat) and that's not his voice.  I'm also not sure about Drew Carey.

That's where I am with Melissa...some clues line up, but the voice doesn't really match.  My guess it will be someone I've never heard of--there always seems to be a few of those each season.  Then my kids ask me who they are and when I say I don't know, I can see the disappointment in their eyes...

I know for a fact that it’s Drew Carey because he mentioned Seattle Sounds, which is a soccer team that he owns.

I think it’s most likely Drew because he owns the Seattle Sounders and 23.3 matches the number of Drew Carey Show episodes. However the clues were supposed to be harder this year which is making me wonder if it could be a misdirect. 

It does sound like Drew to me but if it’s him I am going to disappointed because this episode makes it seem like the show is going downhill with the talent and the clues. I feel like I already have a very good idea of most of them with very little research. It is a huge disappointment.

The only one I figured out from the clues was Gronk (well, the clues and Nick saying that there were 9 Super Bowls represented that night).  However, it could be possible that I just don't know the other ones up there--I knew very little about Lil Wayne.  So, just based on Gronk, I'm really disappointed with how telling the clues are.

At this point I wish they would eliminate the first 2 or 3 clue videos or at least eliminate the most pointed clues. Odds are that the super fans will still recognize their favorite celeb so not immediately confirming it with clues would make the show a lot more interesting again.

I already can't remember what anyone sang, but I like the Danny Bonaduce guess.

I can't remember who it was - was it the turtle who held up the medal and said he made a big splash? I was thinking Olympic swimmer.  

The only other DJ, I can think of, who went to Seattle, was the guy who played Frasier.  He wasn't really a DJ.  He just played one on TV.  Whatever the card clue was, it didn't have to be a joker.  It could also represent black jack or 21.  Although, Jack Black did cross my mind.  None of the other clues fit for him, but it made me think of him.  

I don't really believe that the one singer was Chaka Khan.  I don't think she was a good enough singer.  

Many of these performers generally turn out to be celebrities I never heard of or don't care about and I don't guess very well.

My off-the-wall guesses are:

Llama-I get a Jack Black vibe, but could go with Drew Carey, especially since Wayne Brady was on last season... 

Ms. Monster-Missy Elliott

Kangaroo-no ideas on names, but thinking maybe a UfC fighter or female boxer from all of the fighting references.

Turtle-Agree with it probably being a boy-bander, but who knows which one

No clue on White Tiger, either, but a lot of people seem to think it's Gronk, so...?

White Tiger - Ice Ice Baby by Vanilla Ice

Turtle - Kiss From A Rose By Seal

Llama - She Bangs by Ricky Martin

Miss Monster - Something To Talk About by Bonnie Raitt

Robot - Are You Gonna Go My Way by Lenny Kravitz

Kangaroo - Dancing On My Own by Robyn

The guy who played Frasier was Kelsey Grammer, and my guess would be Drew Carey.

This first group is really stumping me. The only strong thought I have is for Miss Monster. She seems like she's older and a few notes reminded me of Chaka Khan. That's my guess for now.

A lot of people over on The Masked Singer reddit and Discord have some good guesses for Llama.

I've heard users say Kelsey Grammer, Danny Bonaduce, and Rainn Wilson.

I never thought of Drew Carey as a DJ, but I now remember him hosting shows on satellite radio.   The rest of the clues meant nothing to me.

Mine too. The performance made me think it was an older legend like Patti and Gladys. Also there was a 10 in the clue video which is how many Grammy’s Chaka Khan has. 
 

My other guesses at this point are

White Tiger- Gronk

Turtle - Jesse McCartney

Llama - most likely Drew Carey but possibly Danny Bonaduce

Kangaroo - Jordyn Woods

Miss Monster: Miley Cyrus. Nobody else has her lower range. Plus, her connection to "royalty" is that Dolly Parton is her Godmother.

Kangaroo: Tatiana Ali. Boxer.

Tiger: Jesse Ventura. Wrestler. Speaking voice is totally his.

Llama: Agree with the Drew Carey guesses! "Spinning his wheels." Plus, even singing,  the voice sounds just like him!

ETA: WOOT!!!!!!!!!!!  ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^

I knew it was Drew but I’m still irritated that it was him. The clues have been so obvious I was really hoping it was a misdirect.

 Miley is not good IMO. Miss Monster is someone like Chaka Khan or Miss Elliot 

I’m nearly certain it’s Chaka Khan, aka The Queen of Funk, with 10 Grammy’s and a connection to Prince.

Did you mean Laila Ali? She was on the last season.

Yes, Laila. Serves me right that I didn't watch last year!

And your choice of Chaka Khan now makes eminent sense!

I'm not sure if people know about this, but Rob Gronkowski appeared at a Wrestlemania where he interfered in a match for his "friend". I don't even remember who, but that would be the "go to the mat for a friend" clue.

Tatyana Ali played the little sister on 'Fresh Prince of Bel-Air'. She is also a singer. 

I assumed in season one, that the "singers" are contracted to stay for a certain amount of time.  Some of the players were, inexplicably, staying over better performers. 

I did not know that Drew Carey is an academy award nominated actor.  What movie was he in?

Gronk was the worst one tonight, but I figure he will go home next week. 

I have no guesses on the turtle. He will probably be someone I don't know.  Although from his first clue package, I took away medalist in swimming.  Ryan Lochte did cross my mind, but the guy is such a brain trust I wasn't sure he could pull this off.  I never got the impression he could sing either.

I also think Miss Monster is Chaka Khan.  It didn't sound like her in the first show but then I was also too busy looking at the interaction between the Monster and her.  But it sounds like her in the latest episode.

I thought I heard "Academy Award".  I could be mistaken.  I deleted the episode, so I can't go back and check.  I don't know if it was a clue specifically.  Nick mentioned it right before Drew was eliminated.

 I thought Nicole pulled Academy Award out of the air when she was trying to justify her ridiculous guess of Woody Harrelson. It was something like "yes, I know he is Academy Award nominee but he started as a comic" or something. I don't remember ever hearing about an Oscar being mentioned before that.

The Turtle is definitely Jesse McCartney. One clue that hasn't been mentioned is that they showed Seoul on the map for his song "Beautiful Soul". 

Also the clue for the Kangaroo sitting at the same table as Leah Remini was in reference to Jada Pinkett Smith's show, Red Table Talk, where both Leah and Jordyn Woods gave big interviews - I'm convinced it's Jordyn Woods!

Taco is definitely Tom Bergeron. The VHS tapes is what sealed it for me.

Mouse is Dionne Warwick.

Banana is Bret Michaels.

Not sure about who Kitty is though.

Frog is 100% Bow Wow (aka Lil Bow Wow). 

He said it's a "frog eat frog" world, and typed CSI on a keyboard (He starred in CSI: Cyber). That's his voice, body type, and he literally grew up in the industry. I kept thinking B2K, so Omarion was a wonderful guess; but CSI tipped into Bow Wow's favor.

Kitty has me stumped, I think Mae Whitman and Vanessa Hudgens both sing like this and fit the body type. But Vanessa is definitely known as a singer. Sarah Hyland is also the same build.

When Sarah first got started on Modern Family, everyone referred to her as Lil Mila. I think a lot of people could find a way to make the clues fit them both. They are quite similar.

The Kitty also definitely said something about a "MODERN dress" in her clip before her performance (Her voice is a little hard to understand due to the high-pitched filter they've put on it).

Taco is Tom Bergeron. This week alone his video package had journalism references (he used to be a reporter in Boston), a whoopie cushion (Whoopi Goldberg was the centre square on his version of Hollywood Squares), a dancing pose, and stars (because... well, you know).
