The bottom two masked singers will have to perform in a duel before one is ultimately eliminated. Modern Family alum Eric Stonestreet joins the panelists as this week’s guest panelist.

Team Good’s Firefly takes the stage once again to sing a sensational rendition of Michael Jackson’s “P.Y.T. (Pretty Young Thing).” With all the dancing during the performance, Nicole Scherzinger thinks Firefly could be a dancer. Firefly’s mega-clue is a puzzle of Pharrell. Firefly says that Pharrell is “one of the major keys of my career.” The panelists guess Aisha Tyler, Keisha Cole, and Lauryn Hill.

Cyclops of Team Bad hits the stage to perform Elvis Presley’s “Suspicious Minds.” His mega-clue is a meteorite that crashed on Earth in 1988. He says this meteorite is from a “galaxy far, far away.” The panelists guess celebs like Chris Pratt, John Lithgow, and Rob Thomas.

Team Bad’s stage presence continues with Ram. When he steps out onto the stage, he points right at Eric. Do these two know each other?! Ram sings “Learn to Fly” by The Foo Fighters. Ram’s mega-clue is an Emmy envelope. He adds that he’s going “add this [Emmy] to my collection.” The names tossed around as possibilities are Jason Sudeikis, Ty Burrell, and Jason Biggs.

The final solo performance of the night is from Thingamabob. He wows the panelists with his performance of Ed Sheeran’s “Perfect.” The performance brings Ken Jeong to tears. He calls it his “favorite performance of the season.” Robin Thicke even says that Thingamabob is now a “frontrunner” in the competition.

Thingamabob’s mega-clue are four shields. “I left my trident backstage, but I still wanted to rock these shields to show America I’m ready for battle,” Thingamabob says. Jason Momoa, Dwayne Johnson, and Omar Miller are among the celebrity guesses.
