Last week, Medusa was saved by the judges who rang the "Ding Dong Keep It On" Bell to save her following the Battle Royale in Episode 3. She has performed several songs on the show including "New York, New York" by Frank Sinatra and an ABBA classic.

Unfortunately, for fans, she won't make her return to The Masked Singer until all of the kings and queens compete later in the season.

So, viewers will have to wait a bit longer to see her perform again.

Fans will also have to wait a bit to see the California Roll perform again.

Just like Medusa, the California Roll is also missing in action, prompting many fans to share their frustration about the show's new format on social media.

"This new system really sucks, I had hoped they’d get rid of it after last season," one person tweeted before another added, "I remember when The Masked Singer was an actual competition and not fixed like it basically is these past 2 seasons. This format is lame and honestly boring."

As for the California Roll, the audience seems to agree unanimously and think it is none other than Pentatonix.

Another agreed, writing, "I don’t even watch The Masked Singer but from seeing one clip of the California Roll i can immediately tell that it’s Pentatonix lmao Scott’s voice is so obvious."

We have to agree with them there!
