Only three characters survived the semi-finals of The Masked Dancer. After Zebra was revealed to be Oscar de la Hoya, only three competitors remain.
This week in The Masked Dancer, the semifinals marked the end for another celebrity. With one more reveal, fans now have their finalists and we have all of their latest clues.
The show began with a group number of “Shut Up and Dance” from Walk the Moon. Each competitor had a detailed track behind them during their performance. Sloth’s track was Miami, Tulip’s track was cats, Cotton Candy had the floor “chief,“and Zebra had the floor”Golf“as his track. Craig let fans know that the panelist with the most correct guesses so far was, unsurprisingly, seasoned dancer and choreographer Paula Abdul. Given that many of his predictions for the remaining guests align with ours, we are inclined to believe that it will maintain that success rate.
