Happy Masksgiving!

The Masked Singer moved to Thursday night this week so that Broccoli and Mushroom could be part of America’s Thanksgiving table. Along with Jellyfish, the remaining Group C contestants competed for a chance to advance to the Super Six. But with only two slots available, that meant either Broccoli, Mushroom or Jellyfish would end up as a Thanksgiving leftover and head home at the end of the night.

Broccoli, Mushroom and Jellyfish started off the evening by serving up a group performance of The Jackson 5’s “I Want You Back,” complete with some additional clues. Jellyfish teased an “Oscar moment,” Broccoli showed off some “toes & knees” and Mushroom has ties to “Washington.”

In the spirit of the holiday, the clue packages consisted of the disguised singers’ loved ones sharing additional information about the person under the mask. Then after each undercover star took the stage, they brought out a turkey that featured one more game-changing clue to help panelists Ken JeongJenny McCarthyNicole Scherzinger and Robin Thicke, joined this week by returning guest judge Jay Pharoah, make sense of who might be under the costumes.

Jellyfish continued the evening with their solo performance of Dua Lipa‘s “Don’t Start Now” and had the judges thinking they could be a reality star like Kylie Jenner. Then Mushroom took the stage with a powerful version of Katy Perry‘s “Unconditionally.”

“This one is frustrating me the most,” Scherzinger, 42, said of trying to figure out Mushroom’s identity. “Every performance Mushroom does, for me, is transcending.”

The judges suggested Taye Diggs, Jaden Smith or The Weeknd for the fungus, but Mushroom said “the panel is totally tripping” when it came to their guesses.

Broccoli closed out with Bob Seger’s “Old Time Rock & Roll” and afterward revealed that he’s older than the microwave. McCarthy, 48, teased that her dad might be beneath the veggie getup based on his dance moves.

After the judges’ and virtual audience’s votes were tabulated, host Nick Cannon declared that Jellyfish would swim right into the Super Six, while Broccoli and Mushroom would face off in the Smackdown round. Broccoli began with his rendition of “Take Me Home to Alabama”; Mushroom hit back with Donny Hathaway’s “A Song For You.”

Ultimately, the judges chose Mushroom to stay and head to the Super Six, meaning Broccoli would have to unmask. The panelists offered up their final guesses, including Wayne Newton, Neil Sedaka, Paul Simon, Ringo Starr and Al Roker. Thicke, 43, nailed it though with his thought that Canadian Paul Anka could be underneath the produce ensemble.
