‘The Masked Singer’: Crocodile’s Falsetto Floors the Panelists (RECAP)
[Warning: The below contains MAJOR spoilers for The Masked Singer, Season 4, Episode 4, “The Group B Play Offs — Cloudy with a Chance of Clues.”]
It was time for the return of Group B in Fox’s latest installment of The Masked Singer‘s fourth season as Serpent, Crocodile, Baby Alien, Whatchamacallit and Seahorse hit the stage once again.
In a night filled with music and fun, these five disguised celebrities performed for panelists Jenny McCarthy, Ken Jeong, Nicole Scherzinger and Robin Thicke. But it wasn’t just the singers who nearly stole the show as host Nick Cannon welcomed serial guest panelist Joel McHale back for more shenanigans between the musical performances.
While Baby Alien continued to win over viewers with his clever costume, there was no denying Crocodile’s innate talent when it came to his showstopping falsetto. Below, we’re breaking down the clues, identity guesses and more from Group B’s Play Offs, but beware of spoilers as we reveal which celebrity was unmasked at the end of this week’s episode.

When it came time to send one of Group B’s members home, Baby Alien was the unlucky singer. Before they were unmasked, the panelists revisited their old guesses and revealed their final predictions. Despite a hefty list that included Ralph Macchio, Nick Kroll, Matt LeBlanc, Freddie Prinze Jr., Taylor Lautner, Triumph the Insult Comic Dog, Jason Biggs, David Schwimmer, Jeff Dunham and Eric Bana, it was pro NFL quarterback Mark Sanchez.
