‘The Masked Dancer’ semi-finals preview: Who’s predicted to go home on February 3?

After five weeks of competition, the Top 5 celebs on “The Masked Dancer” have finally been revealed: Cotton Candy, Exotic Bird, Sloth, Tulip and Zebra. These masked hoofers had better bring their A-games during the all-important semi-finals, because now is when “the competition gets fierce,” declares Fox’s preview trailer (watch above). Special guest panelist Mayim Bialik joins regular judges Ashley Tisdale, Brian Austin Green, Ken Jeong and Paula Abdul for another round of sleuthing, but who will be heading home before next week’s Final 4? Our readers think they know.

According to Gold Derby’s predictions, Exotic Bird is the likeliest contender to be eliminated during the semi-finals round. This talented squawker has received mixed reviews from the judges during her tenure and is routinely out-danced by her fierce competitors. Exotic Bird tops our elimination chart with 9/2 odds, followed by Zebra in second place with 17/2 odds of going home.

Exotic Bird will take a big risk this week by dancing to Abdul’s “Opposites Attract” on the big stage. The song choice prompts Bialik to proclaim, “My childhood dream is to listen to a Paula Abdul song sitting next to Paula Abdul!” In earlier rounds, Exotic Bird shook her tailfeathers to “Con Calma,” “Latch” and “Rush.”

Elsewhere in the video package, Tisdale shows her age after Abdul throws out Barry Bonds‘ name for one of her guesses. “Who is Barry Bonds?” the 35-year-old singer/actress wonder aloud, referring to the Major League Baseball superstar. Jeong, an avid sports fan, does a wide-eyed double-take at Tisdale’s comment.
