SPOILER ALERT: Don’t read on if you haven’t watched season 8, episode 6, of “The Masked Singer», « ’90s Night », aired on November 6 on Fox.
Wow! It was very fitting that the 1990s idol Joey Lawrence, from “Blossom,” “Gimme a Break” and “Nothin’ My Love Can’t Fix,” was revealed on Sunday’s special “’90s Night” edition of Fox’s “The Masked Singer.” Lawrence and NFL running back Le’Veon Bell were the show’s final double-masking.
Lawrence, as Walrus, was the first to go, with the fewest votes. Bell was later unmasked as Milkshake after facing off against the Lambs Prize winners in a battle royal (in which the two took turns singing Haddaway’s “What Is Love”). The Lambs won for the second straight and move on to next week’s episode.
“’90s Night” started with CC Glenn and Steve Rolln of Tag Team, performing their 1993 classic “Whoomp! (There He is)” (as also seen in recent years on a Geico commercial).
For the Walrus, Robin Thicke was right with Joey Lawrence. Jenny McCarthy-Wahlberg thought it was Scott Wolf (who lived in her house for seven years, she added). Nicole Scherzinger chose Mario Lopez. Ken Jeong thought it was John Stamos.
As for the Milkshake, no one quite understood. Robin Thicke thought it was Deshaun Jackson. Nicole Scherzinger named TI Ken Jeong said LL Cool J. Jenny McCarthy Wahlberg chose DJ Jazzy Jeff.
Joey Lawrence as Walrus and Le’Veon Bell as Milkshake join Kat Graham as Robo Girl, Jerry Springer as Beetle, Gloria Gaynor as Mermaid, Mario Cantone as Maise, Daymond John as Fortune Teller, Barry Williams/Christopher Knight/Mike Lookinland as the Mummies , Montell Jordan as Panther, Jeff Dunham as Pi-Rat, Chris Kirkpatrick as the Hummingbird, Eric Idle as the Hedgehog, and William Shatner as the Knight as the celebrities revealed in “The Masked Singer” in Season 8.
Multiple eliminations in an episode are the norm this time around, as “The Masked Singer” adopts a new “King or Queen of Masked Singer” format. This season, three or four costumed celebrities will perform each week, but only one will win and compete against two or three other people the following week.
This will continue throughout the season, as after each round three finalists will face off in the semi-finals. The Harp survived Round 1 and is the first to advance to the semi-finals.
“The Masked Singer” enters Season 8 with costumes such as “Bride”, “Avocado”, “Venus Fly Trap”, “Sir Bugaboo”, “Scarecrow”, “Hedgehog”, “Mommies”. Themed episodes include “Vegas Night”, “Comedy Roast”, “Hall of Fame”, “Muppets Night”, “Andrew Lloyd Webber Night”, “TV Themes”, “’90s Night”, “Thanksgiving” and “Fright Night “. “Guests this season include Donny Osmond, Andrew Lloyd Webber, The Muppets, Will Arnett, Leslie Jordan, Joel McHale, Tori Spelling, Jon Lovitz, Jodie Sweetin, Carrot Top, Blue Man Group, Lance Bass, Danielle Fishel, Sheila E. and Drew Carey.

Voice over package“You’re probably wondering how I got here. At your local mall, surrounded by a packed house of screaming fans. Sign autographs and take photos with your mom. To tell my story, let’s take it back to the 90s. It all started when I tap danced on the desk of a late night talk show legend. This was just the beginning of my heartthrob origin story. Picture this: flannel shirt, leather jacket, soft hair. A zip code that kills and a slogan that is still permanently anchored in pop culture. But every teen idol has to grow up. So I took on new roles and introduced myself to a whole new generation of raving fans. So tonight, I’m warning you now, you and your mom are about to totally freak out.
The panel guesses: John Stamos, Joey Lawrence, Mark Paul Gosselaar, Mario Lopez
Milkshake (LE’VEON BELL)
Song: “Jump On It”, by Sir Mix-A-Lot
Strength: Very thick
Clue delivered by Danielle Fishel of “Boy Meets World”: Wiz and Snoop
Voice over package“Listen carefully, because these rhymes are topical. Take a fantastic trip back to the 90s. Ready for action, so take the blitz. Ever since I was a kid, I was making hits. My rhymes made me the one the ladies look up to, so I dropped a mixtape and it was certified fire. Dodged enemies, stepped in and jazzed up. The biggest name in gaming has reached out to collaborate. He handed me the ball because I never drop it. After that day, I took off like a rocket. Try knocking me down, you better not be gentle. Call me Taylor Swift man, cause I’m rocking it. So ring that bell, I’m ready to fight. I’m going to throw a punch here on the night of the 90s.”
