The Masked Singer US unmasks Seahorse, Popcorn and Jellyfish
The Masked Singer US season four semi-final spoilers follow.
The Masked Singer US has unmasked three more celebrities in a bumper semi-final reveal, with Seahorse, Popcorn and Jellyfish having their identities revealed as singer Tori Kelly, singer Taylor Dayne and snowboarder Chloe Kim.
The season four semi-final, which aired yesterday (December 2), saw the remaining contestants pitted against each other in pairs to compete for a place in the final, with Seahorse, Popcorn and Jellyfish losing out to Crocodile, Sun and Mushroom respectively.
After Seahorse was eliminated after her performance of Bruno Mars' 'That's What I Like', panellists Nicole Scherzinger and Robin Thicke correctly guessed that Kelly was under the mask, with guest panellist Craig Robinson also choosing Kelly. Ken Jeong guessed that they were singer Christina Aguilera, while Jenny McCarthy-Wahlberg went for singer Halsey.

After Kelly was unmasked, Scherzinger told her that she was "gutted" to see her go, telling her that she was "the best vocalist we've ever had on this show".
Kelly, whose clues had included a clock with wings in a reference to her single 'Time Flies', said that she had wanted to show a more sassy side to herself on the show.
"I was just so thrilled to hear all the nice things you guys said and I just feel more like an entertainer now as a whole," she said. "I'm just excited for what this means for the rest of my career too and it's all good things."
Popcorn was eliminated after performing Tina Turner's 'Better Be Good To Me', with Scherzinger, McCarthy-Wahlberg and Robinson all correctly guessing Dayne's identity. Thicke and Jeong both opted for singer Turner herself.

After Dayne, whose clues included a heart monitor in reference to her hit 'With Every Beat Of My Heart', was revealed as Popcorn, she announced that she had "a ball" on the show and said that "the creativity" was the element of The Masked Singer she had most enjoyed.
Jellyfish was unmasked after performing Rihanna's 'Stay', with Jeong and Robinson the only panellists to correctly guess her identity. Thicke guessed gymnast Gabby Douglas, McCarthy-Wahlberg thought they were gymnast McKayla Maroney and Scherzinger went for singer Grimes.
The snowboarder's clues had included a gold throne with gold pipes, referring to her gold medal in the half-pipe, and an angelfish, which referred to her cameo in Charlie's Angels.
After Kim's identity was revealed, Jeong called her "amazing" and "an inspiration" - although things got awkward when Kim jokingly revealed that she had sent Jeong a message two years ago which he never replied to.

She added: "You guys gave me so much confidence after each week and it's just been such a fun experience to be able to put myself out there, be vulnerable – I really, really appreciate it."
