Beetle on 'The Masked Singer' — The Clues
Week 5 of The Masked Singer marks Beetle's debut performance. Their costume is of a yellow insect with a ladybug shell and a mop top dressed in a grey pinstripe suit. Their design is likely a direct reference to The Beatles, but whether or not this is a direct clue is still up for debate.
They'll face off against the Lamb trio as well as last week's winner, Robo Girl.
As for clues about Beetle's identity, there are a few to work with:
- Beetle's "Mask-Ray" promo displays a "Leaf."
- A recent Instagram reel shows off Beetle with a sound clip of a Harry Styles interview from a press conference for Don't Worry Darling.
- Another Instagram post describes Beetle as "a bug in a million."
It's not a lot to go on, but fans and even judges already have their suspicions.
