On Wednesday night’s broadcast of the Fox singing competition, Axolotl and Macaw faced up against Fairy. Yee-haw! On Country Night, The Masked Singer mounted his horse. Putting on a cowboy hat and a sparkling gold jacket, host Nick Cannon welcomed back Fairy, the current champion.
Fairy referred to Linda Ronstadt as a “close friend” who has supported her since she was 13 in her clue package. Fairy declared that “music is a significant aspect of my existence.” She also presented a book of fairy tales with a blue ribbon as a fresh hint.
“Angel from Montgomery” by Bonnie Raitt was covered by Fairy. When I was about 11 years old, I sang that song for the first time, Fairy recalled. “I was completely clueless as to what the lyrics even meant. But it persisted in my heart.”
Another hint was presented by comedian Bill Engvall: blackjack, which uses playing cards that sum up to 21. Fairy declared, “I know a thing or two about winning, and with this hand, I could really take you to school.” The judges Ken Jeong, Jenny McCarthy, Nicole Scherzinger, and Robin Thicke speculated that Fairy might be Mickey Guyton, Lori Harvey, or Jennifer Aniston.
The following name was Axolotl. Axolotl described her persona as “extremely cute and rambunctious, just like me” in her clue package, which also included pom poms, a gold bell, and a raw steak. Axolotl claimed that she changed schools as a child because of bullying and that the stress caused her to stop eating.
One day, when I was at my lowest, I heard a song that got me through it, remarked Axolotl. “I eventually started loving the man as much as the voice. He assisted me in seeing that the only way to make my life a perfect 10 was to encourage rather than discourage myself.”

LeAnn Rimes‘ song “Can’t Fight the Moonlight” was given a new twist by Axolotl. Thicke, 46, remarked that it was the cutest outfit ever. Robert Woods, a wide receiver for the NFL, provided a further hint in the form of a football helmet bearing the number 2.3 million.
The panel speculated that Fairy may be one of the following: gymnasts Simone Biles or McKayla Maroney; wrestlers Nikki or Brie Bella; Alexa Bliss. Macaw is last. According to Macaw in their clue package, “He’s everything that I’m not: flamboyant, self-assured, and he performs country tunes.”
The vibrant bird clarified that acting wasn’t always natural. In order to get me to perform at our neighborhood Mexican restaurant, Macaw added, “My dad would buy me quesadillas. Eventually, I spread my wings on bigger stages.”
Yet the pressure I feel to constantly be the nice son has made me quite anxious. Having discovered how to “take breaks and rest,” Macaw claimed that performing now “fills me with delight.” McCarthy, 50, referred to Macaw as the night’s front-runner after the parrot sang Tim McGraw’s “Live Like You Were Dying” during his performance.
A silver medal and a job offer were handed by country singer-songwriter Deana Carter! Carter, 57, said Macaw, “You should come on the road and open for me.” “I didn’t strike gold until I left the nest,” Macaw said in reference to the medal. For Macaw, Elijah Wood, Zayn Malik, and Doug Robb from Hoobastank were suggested.
Axolotl had to reveal his identity after receiving the fewest votes from the studio audience when it came time to cast their ballots for their favorite performance. Bliss, a 31-year-old WWE star, turned out to be McCarthy’s prediction. After that, Fairy and Macaw participated in the Battle Royale, also known as the Do-si-do this week.
In Shania Twain’s “That Don’t Impress Me Much,” they each gave it their all. Although the judges were impressed with both competitors, they ultimately decided to promote Macaw. Actress Holly Robinson Peete was then left for Fairy to unmask.
