While Season 4 has already unmasked some of its mystery Hollywood singers, there are still a few identities that have not been revealed. 

One of the trippiest costumes this season has definitely got to be the Mushroom. And, based on the clues that we have received about the Mushroom so far, audiences are convinced they know the fungus' true identity.

Who is the Mushroom on 'The Masked Singer'? Let's take a look at the clues...

Previously, the Mushroom revealed some very important clues about themself. 

"Mushrooms are resilient and thrive in all circumstances. Being here has made me realize this show is fertile ground to explore another side of yourself," Mushroom said, before adding, "If you want to know who's behind my mask, you'll need to figure out who's under ... My hats," the unknown celeb said while sporting different mushroom hats.

"Johnny Depp! All the clues match mushroom, squirrel, truffle, puppy dog eyes, hats and one of the first words said in the clue package was Wonderland. DUH!" the individual wrote. 

That might be a stretch... 

Billy Porter: Another social media user suggested that Billy Porter is the Mushroom. 

However, this is not the first time the award-winning actor's name has been thrown into The Masked Singer mix. Last year, fans theorized that the Pose star was the Leopard. Billy shut down those rumors in an exclusive interview with Distractify.

"I’ve never seen the show. I don’t know what it is about," he told us. "I’m telling you now, if you say it’s Billy Porter, you will lose 'cause it ain’t me! It's not me."

So, maybe the actor decided to finally do the show?

Anthony Ramos: More likely, viewers seem convinced that Anthony Ramos is the mystery voice behind the Mushroom. Anthony, who recently released his first album "The Good and the Bad," is best known for playing John Laurens and Philip Hamilton in Hamilton alongside Lin-Manuel Miranda. 

Another popular guess is fellow Broadway singer (and DWTS champ) Jordan Fisher, who also happened to star in Hamilton, playing Anthony's exact roles...  

The Masked Singer airs Wednesdays at 8 p.m. ET on Fox.
