Masked Singer Season Six LIVE – Fans think Banana Split is David Foster & guess Cupcake is either RuPaul or Billy Porter

THE Masked Singer fans are suspecting Banana Split to be David Foster and Cupcake to be either RuPaul or Billy Porter.

One Twitter user wrote: "Okay so this banana split is Katherine McPhee and David Foster! I know that voice from anywhere and the clues fit!!!"

"I’ve been obsessed with her since she was American Idol, Banana Split is 100% Katharine McPhee!!! and obviously playing the piano is her husband, David Foster," tweeted another fan.

Before their performance, Banana Split said: “We’re so excited to be here because it’s so unexpected.”

The banana played the piano while the ice cream sang A Million Dreams by P!nk.

Meanwhile, Cupcake sang Heat Wave by Martha and the Vandellas.

The judges guessed Cupcake to be Ru Paul, Roberta Flack, Leslie Jones, or Tina Turner.

Fans on social media guessed the singer to be Ru Paul or Billy Porter.

The Masked Singer returned Wednesday night with a new series of characters — the Queen of Hearts, Dalmatian, Mallard, Banana Split, and Cupcake.

Tonight's show comes after a heartfelt performance of a Rascal Flatts song put the Bull at the top of viewers' lists, while the Skunk's hints about her education 'outside the classroom' added more mystery to The Masked Singer.

Last week, Toni Braxton was revealed as the Pufferfish and Vivica A. Fox as Mother Nature in the shocking premiere’s double elimination.

Nicole Scherzinger, Jenny McCarthy, Robin Thicke and Ken Jeong were completely shocked by the big unmasking while host, Nick Cannon, called it the “BIGGEST upset in the show’s history.”

      ALL FOUR JUDGES GUESSED MOTHER NATURE INCORRECTLY, CONTINUED

      When the flowing green headpiece was removed from the actress, the panelists were floored by the big reveal of Mother Nature.

      However, Jenny McCarthy claimed she “should’ve guessed” it was the talented star as she previously “had it written down.”

      “I knew, I just know you,” Nick told the natural beauty on stage – to which she giggled and asked how he really knew it was her.

      Meanwhile, Nicole, 43, and Robin, 44, both insisted the person was Tracee Ellis Ross and “proved” their point by The Masked Singer contestant belting out her mom, Diana Ross’ hit, I’m Coming Out.

      MORE MOTHER NATURE CLUES

      Another guessed the 51-year-old talk show host because she’d previously taken on the role of Mother Nature in the Santa Clause movie franchise.

      A third suggested her after seeing the clue about “realizing that kids were not in her future and that was a struggle for her.”

      Following Mother Nature's performance of I'm Coming Out by Diana Ross, some fans also guessed that the celebrity could be Tracee Ellis Ross, Chelsea Handler, Kesha, Shakira or Vivica A. Fox.

      In the end, Fox was revealed as Mother Nature on this season of The Masked Singer.

      MOTHER NATURE: THE CLUES

      Tiffany Haddish and Aisha Tyler were the top guesses for Mother Nature's identity before she was revealed, thanks to some of the clues given out during the show.

      Some fans believed the Girls Trip actress was the star inside the costume since Wayne Brady was mentioned in the clues, and she was recently joined by him on Friday Night Vibes.

      Others said it was her because she doesn’t have kids, which was also a clue, and the contestant seemed to be “someone who isn’t a singer.”

      One fan chose Aisha as a good possibility because they “saw Wayne Brady in the clue package, and she was the host of Whose Line Is It Anyway? which we know he was a panelist on.”
