The latest episode of The Masked Singer Season 7 aired on April 13 on FOX. The first performance starred fan-favorite Miss Teddy from Team Cuddly.
The reality series divides singers into three groups — Team Cuddly, Team Good, and Team Bad. Their identities are only revealed when they are eliminated. Until then, fans and judges can guess who they think is the celebrity behind the costume.
In the previous episode, Hydra (magician duo Penn and Teller) from Team Bad was eliminated. This time, Miss Teddy was up against Team Good’s Armadillo and Ringmaster in the elimination round.
Who do fans think Miss Teddy is?
Miss Teddy was the first performer of the night. She sang Mercy by Duffy, leaving the panel of judges impressed. The panel included guest judge and The Masked Singer alum Leslie Jordan. He guessed Miss Teddy to be Mavis Staples, while other judges' answers were Gloria Gaynor and Jennifer Holliday.
Viewers also gave their opinions on social media. From Yolanda Adams and Patti LaBelle to Shirley Caesar, many fans shared their guesses about Miss Teddy's identity online. However, most of them think she is an American actress and singer, Jennifer Holliday.
