‘The Masked Singer’ spoilers: The Rottweiler is …

The quarter-final of “The Masked Singer” on December 10 was packed with performances by the six celebrities still in the competition. Among these was the Rottweiler who had the crowd howling their approval yet again. He is fighting for a place in the semi-final as are the contestants disguised as the Flamingo, Fox, Leopard, Thingamajig and Tree. All are hoping to win enough votes from the studio audience to avoid the sing-off in front of the four judges (Ken JeongJenny McCarthy, Nicole Scherzinger, Robin Thicke).

We think that the Rottweiler is one of the best singers still in the hunt for the season 2 title. He has wowed us with each of his four previous performances. He was the stand-out in week 1 with his cover of the Hall & Oates classic “Maneater.” Likewise on week 5 he owned the stage with his version of the OneRepublic hit “Love Runs Out.” He did the same in week 6 with  “Castle on the Hill” by Ed Sheeran and in week 7 with “Grenade” by Bruno Mars.

We’ve watched all of these performances repeatedly as well as his clues videos. We think we’ve figured out who is really the Rottweiler. Keep reading for the fourth of this week’s “The Masked Singer” spoilers.
