'The Masked Singer Australia': All The Biggest Clues From Episode 3

It's Week 2 of 'The Masked Singer' and the clues are only getting more confusing.

Instead of being helpful, practical tidbits of information, the cryptic descriptions of our furry, shiny and glittery singing characters are only leading to blank stares and furrowed brows from the panel.

"I feel like the more clues you give us, the worse we become at this," noted Jackie O after Lion divulged some indecipherable backstory about her childhood.

"The more we find out, the less we know," Osher wisely added.

Episode 3 saw the Masked Singers moving away from face-offs to individual performances with Wolf, Lion, Alien, Robot and Prawn getting a little bit longer on stage than last week to show off their vocals (or lack thereof).

In his second performance of the competition, Wolf kept up his signature swagger, oozing bad boy vibes with his rendition of Shawn Mendes' "There's Nothing Holding Me Back".

What We Know: 

  • He admitted that wolves do have a bad reputation and that he "did run wild when I was a pup".
  • Although he apparently "wasn't the runt of the litter", he wasn't number one, either.
  • Wolf might have missed his dream but he "remained unbroken" and worked harder than ever, "like a dog with a bone".
  • Mentions of the "Southern Cross", and that getting to where he is now "is a miracle like walking on water".

The Judges' Guesses: Redfoo, David Hasselhof, Simon LeBon, Rob Mills.

Lion stepped up with another arrangement showing how talented the show's music director is. Singing a souped-up version of Billie Eilish's "Bad Guy", the feline goddess was surrounded by Matrix-style dancers clad in floor-length leather jackets, confirming our suspicions that she's a professional singer.

What We Know: 

  • "We all know the jungle saying, 'Leave them wanting more,'" said Lion as her opening clue. While it's actually a P.T. Barnum quote (does that make it a circus saying?) it could be a clue about actual leaves. We honestly have no idea.
  • Mentioned being "queen of this big island" and added that it wasn't the first time we've seen her as "queen of the jungle".
  • Lion reminded us that she's very physical -- something she has in common with "a great queen of the grass court".
  • The diva was pictured on a tennis court, with bloody Marys on hand.
  • She learnt the importance of "self-discipline and fighting hard" from an early age.

The Judges' Guesses: Pauline Hanson, Serena Williams, Julia Morris, Rebel Wilson.

Alien

The tiny Alien with a powerful voice belted out 5SOS' "Youngblood" after we got hit with another baffling round of clues.

What We Know: 

  • The extraterrestrial "hit the heights" after her "huge competition win".
  • Mentioned that her career dropped almost as fast as it started, which made the young Alien very sad.
  • Her home will always be down under where "absolutely everybody knows me".
  • Pictured in a classroom with pink milkshakes, Alien said she hopes her "lessons will be learned by younger generations".
  • In bars all around the country, there's a drink named after Alien.

The Judges' Guesses: Emma Watkins (the yellow Wiggle), Lydia Lassler, Samantha Jade, Vanessa Amorosi.

Prawn

The sexy one-eyed pirate Prawn was back for another round of hip-gyrating and tail shaking and no one was going to complain about that, especially with another iconic song choice from the crustacean -- Queen's "I Want To Break Free".

What We Know: 

  • Prawn alluded to the judges' suspicion that he's a salty ex-boyfriend of perhaps Dannii or maybe Lindsay.
  • Prawn said although he attends "big occasions" he's famously spent a lot of time around the house and sometimes feels like an outsider.
  • He was pictured vacuuming and dusting under the sea, which makes no sense at all.
  • The comp is a change in direction but Prawns apparently "enjoy a change of sea-nery".
  • A sports fanatic who has the "perfect platform" to sing their praises.

The Judges' Guesses: Andrew "Freddie" Flintoff, Rove McManus, Dr Chris Brown, Charlie Sheen.

Robot

Robot switched gears from last week's performance of "Hold Back The River" and sang Daryl Braithwaite's Australian classic tune, "Horses".

What We Know: 

  • Robot said he left his factory and "headed east like a moth to a flame" which could refer to the east coast of Australia?
  • Pictured playing chess with his bodyguards, one of whom pops a bubblegum bubble from his mouth. There's also a clock that reads 20.12.
  • Robot said he realised that "others were controlling his programming" so he "short-circuited the production line" and is now his own Robot.
  • This part got confusing but Robot is apparently creative as well as multi-layered like an onion or a Russian doll.
  • Robot loves playing the game, has a metal head and doesn't stay in his own lane.
  • Inspired the best reaction from Dannii so far this season with the panellist exclaiming, "You're driving this Minogue nuts!" after his performance.

The Judges' Guesses: Cody Simpson, Joey Fatone, Timomatic, Pat Rafter.

'The Masked Singer Australia' will premiere on Monday, September 23 at 7.30 on 10 and WIN Networks.
