The Masked Singer: Jordyn Woods removes Kangaroo mask during shocking reveal after being eliminated

Scandal-ridden reality TV star Jordyn Woods was revealed as the Kangaroo on Wednesday’s episode of The Masked Singer.

The audience looked shocked when she took off her mask, as show host Nick Cannon, 39, introduced her as, ‘actress, model, entrepreneur, and now singer Jordyn Woods!’

Jordyn’s smooth version of the 2008 hit song No Air by Jordin Sparks was praised by the judges, who were sure she was a pro even though she admitted she’d never sung before.

Nicole Scherzinger, 41, even called her voice a ‘God-given gift’ and said it gave her ‘goosebumps’ when she heard it, but it wasn’t enough to keep Kangaroo in the competition.

Only judge Jenny McCarthy-Wahlberg, 47, sensed that it was Jordyn, 22, before the unmasking.

‘We were getting Kardashian clues, lots of them,’ Jenny considered after she was asked who she thought it was, remembering the hints about Kangaroo’s identity over several weeks.

‘I keep sticking with the drama queen, reality, ”thrust into the spotlight for the wrong reasons” [clues], because there is a Kardashian kind of adjacent person that we’re missing,’ Jenny noted. ‘My guess right now is Jordyn Woods.’

She added that the Kangaroo said she had lost her father, as Jordyn did three years ago.

‘Jenny is good,’ Jordyn admitted after her unmasking, smiling as she addressed the crowd. ‘You guys were really off every week, but this time you got it.’

Jordyn became a household name in February 2019 after she was embroiled in a cheating scandal with Cleveland Cavaliers basketball player Tristan Thompson, 29, just as his girlfriend Khloé Kardashian, 35, was due to give birth to their one-year-old daughter True.

In the aftermath, Jordyn was excommunicated by the whole Kardashian-Jenner family, including her former best friend Kylie Jenner, 22.

Her time on The Masked Singer was a gamble, as she admitted that she’d never performed in front of anyone before, which stunned the judges.

‘I was extremely nervous every performance, but honestly the words from you guys made me just more confident every single show,’ she emphasized.

‘We meant every word,’ Jenny said, beaming at her.

‘Your voice is amazing, and I hope that you use this experience, baby, to springboard yourself to whatever the next thing is,’ offered guest judge, actress Yvette Nicole Brown, 48. ‘This show reveals that you have talents that you don’t even know. So just fly baby girl. Fly.’

Asked what made her want to be on the show, Jordyn said, ‘I just love a challenge. I felt like this was an opportunity for people to see a different side of me that not even I knew existed.’

Amazing voice: ‘Your voice is amazing, and I hope that you use this experience, baby, to springboard yourself to whatever the next thing is,’ offered guest judge, actress Yvette Nicole Brown, 48

‘You know what I love?’ asked Nick. ‘That now when someone says ”Jordyn Woods,” it’s not gonna be for being somebody’s friend, or Keeping Up With The Kardashians, it’s somebody who can sing like a true queen.’ 

Robin Thicke, 43, had been sure the Kangaroo was former MTV VJ La La Anthony, 38, while Nicole voted for model Blac Chyna, 31, the ex-girlfriend of Rob Kardashian, 33; and Yvette felt it was Ayesha Curry, 31, wife of NBA star Stephen Curry, 32.

Ken Jeong, 50, voted for actress Keira Knightley, 35, before switching to TV host Cat Deeley, 43,

Eight singers were left to start the show, and two pairs of contestants battled one another onstage during the first Face Off round, with those getting the smallest amount of votes going into a Smackdown.

Security was ‘at an all-time high’ for the face-offs, so each contestant had to reveal what was in their ‘luggage,’ which was scanned under an X-ray and presented to the judges for clues.

Kangaroo and Night Angel were the first ones to go onstage, and Kangaroo admitted she was ‘terrified’ by how ‘effortless’ her competition made performing seem.

For her part, the Night Angel said she was aware that she came off as ‘confident’, but was worried that Kangaroo’s tenderness and ‘vulnerability’ onstage would be her undoing.

As usual, Night Angel stomped around the stage with brio, belting out a version of Shania Twain’s 1997 classic, Man! I Feel Like A Woman that had Jenny proclaiming, ‘She can sing!’

‘What a way to start off the final eight with you, Night Angel!’ she added.

Night Angel’s travel bag included an ostrich, a snow globe, a crown and a bumblebee, with tags reading ‘Boss’ and ‘This Bag is Mine.’

‘I usually fly right over security, but not here,’ Night Angel offered. ‘I present to you these heavenly clues, so you can start winging it with your guesses.’

Ken thought the ‘Boss’ clue pointed to actress Taraji P. Henson, 49, saying he loved her song in the movie Hustle & Flow, It’s Hard Out Here for a Pimp.

‘I should know because I married a Ho,’ he said, quickly adding, ‘That’s my wife’s last name!’

Nicole felt it could be actress Keke Palmer, 26, while Yvette chose actress Vanessa Williams, 57.

Kangaroo then wowed with her cover of No Air, and her bag was shown, too. It held a statue of Big Ben, a record player, a ship in a bottle, and a tube of red lipstick, with a tag that read ‘First.’

The wooden model ship was later said to refer to Jordyn’s modeling career and her last name, Woods, while a vine and a gramophone shown in a previous video package were a nod to her ‘huge social media popularity on Vine and Instagram,’ a screen credit said.

The episode’s second battle pitted the Turtle against the Astronaut, who said, ‘In a lot of ways this face-off was inevitable, because Turtle and I are almost like mirror images in this competition.’

‘The panel have been making similar, and sometimes the same guesses, for who Astronaut and I are under these masks,’ Turtle agreed.

Astronaut declared himself to be a ‘shy guy’ but felt like he was going to win the fight by showing his heart, which he did with his rendition of Shawn Mendes’ 2019 track If I Can’t Have You.

It earned him a standing ovation from the crowd, and Nicole smiled as she said, ‘Seriously, you do not want to go home, do you?’

‘He was working the stage… he was giving it his all,’ the Don’t Cha singer told her fellow judges.

Astronaut’s bag included an accordion, airplane, light bulb and a shot of the White House, with a tag that read, ‘Warning Do Not Open.’

‘I’m an open book,’ the Astronaut hinted. ‘Now it’s your mission to unearth who I am.’

Jenny offered that it could be actor Ben Platt, 26, while Ken went for actor Seth Green, 46, and Nicole selected singer Austin Mahone, 24.

Turtle went next, with a heartfelt rendition of James Bay’s Let It Go, a song about ‘devastating heartbreak,’ something he said he’d experienced.

After he finished, Nicole marveled, ‘Turtle just took us to church with that performance.’

Turtle’s bag was filled with a baseball mitt, perfume, a judges’ gavel and a passport with a crown, and had tags marked with an arrow and the words ‘Never keep open this bag.’

Robin immediately read the last phrase and said, ‘NKOTB,’ which stood for ‘New Kids On the Block,’ but Jenny wondered if the arrow referred to the band One Direction.

‘It’s not easy going through security when you’re covered in metal spikes,’ the Turtle hinted. ‘But what should be easy is figuring out these clues. So panel, take it slow, like a turtle, and I promise they’ll all fit like a glove.’

Jenny opined that it could be singer Adam Lambert, 38, while Yvette thought it was NKOTB singer Joey McIntyre, 47, but Ken was sure it was One Direction’s Niall Horan, 26.

‘Little known fact, I’m not making this up: I was in an unreleased video with Niall Horan called ”Slow Hands,” and it wasn’t released because it was, and I quote, it was ”too weird”,’ he added.

For the Smackdown, Kangaroo sang Donna Summer’s 1979 classic Hot Stuff, while Astronaut sang *NSYNC’s 2000 crowd-pleaser Bye Bye Bye.’

Despite her skill, Kangaroo lost and was soon unmasked.

The Masked Singer will return next week on Fox with with the second part of the Face Offs ahead of the season three finale.
