As his final performance, the Fast And The Furious star sang an emotional ballad, Water Runs Dry by Boyz II Men. 

The superstar panelists praised his “impressive” vocals and were visibly moved by his rendition. 

Despite seeming to win over the room, Robo-Pine was announced as the latest casualty of the competition. 

Jenny McCarthy is adamant the robotic porcupine is Jamie Foxx while Ken Jeong says it’s Wesley Snipes. 

Meanwhile, Robin Thicke was sure the contestant is actor Terrence Howard.

The only person who accurately guessed Tyrese, 42, was Nicole Scherzinger and guest judge, This Is Us actress Chrissy Metz.

As he took his mask off, the Pussycat Doll blushed and exclaimed with wide eyes: “Don’t you want to just lick his face?”

Nick joined Tyrese on stage and was visibly disappointed by tonight’s results. 

“This was my favorite for sure so I am no happy at all to see you go. But you just made The Masked Singer a whole lot cooler,” he said.
