‘The Masked Singer’ Rabbit is Nicole Scherzinger’s ‘favorite performer out of everyone’ after ‘Poison’ cover [WATCH]

After Rabbit’s latest performance on Episode 5 of “The Masked Singer,” judge Nicole Scherzinger raved, “You were bustin’ out all the old moves. It was so fly. You’re probably my favorite performer out of everyone on the entire show.” Rabbit decided to throw in some R&B in Wednesday’s episode to mess with the judges, choosing Bell Biv DeVoe‘s “Poison.” His plan apparently worked, as Nicole, Ken Jeong, Jenny McCarthy and Robin Thicke had trouble guessing who was behind the Rabbit mask. Watch “The Masked Singer” performance video above.

Ken admitted that he was “a little bit irritated” with Rabbit the last time he performed because of the way he kept doing his “annoying method actor thing.” However, Ken conceded, “You did deliver I think the best performance so far on the series. I can’t deny, I loved you, I have to begrudgingly admit.”

WEEK FIVE SPOILERS: Who are the AlienLionRabbit

Jenny once again thought that Rabbit might be from a boy band, announcing, “I noticed that the mixed tape on the background and your choice in song and those dance moves? Those look very familiar, very boy band-ish, I just wanna say.”

Before Rabbit left the stage he revealed a physical clue for the first time: a magician kit. “It’s another way I like to impress an audience,” Rabbit teased. Nicole took that to mean that he might be “part magician,” to which Ken responded, “Nicole thinks everyone is a magician!”

“Every week I think I have Rabbit figured out and then they offer some type of clue that doesn’t help at all,” lamented Robin. Some of Rabbit’s previous clues were that he “found safety in a group” and that he “was never alone” on stage. Could that mean that Rabbit is actually an NSYNC member like Joey Fatone or JC Chasez?
