THE Masked Singer judges struggled all season long with accurate predictions but finally got it right when Dionne Warwick was revealed as The Mouse.
Ken Jeong, 50, was the only judge who guessed wrong while Nicole Scherzinger, 41, Robin Thicke, 42, Jenny McCarthy, 47, and guest panelist Gabriel Iglesias, 43, all correctly predicted the singing legend.
Between the entire judging panel, they have only been able to accurately predict one of the four reveals from season three.
The six-time Grammy winning icon, 79, impressed the audience with the Natalie Cole classic This Will Be (An Everlasting Love).
She was eliminated after she received the lowest amount of combined audience and judges votes in the Group B round.
The elimination was a shock given the level of talent in the That’s What Friends Are For singer’s performances.
Judge Jenny exclaimed when she heard the results: “Wow! I did not see that coming!”
Her co-star Ken did not think she would get sent home: “Not gonna lie I thought the taco was going to go home. Maybe the audience isn’t hearing what I’m hearing.”
Despite the sudden exit, Dionne ended her run on a positive note: “This has been my absolute pleasure!
“I had the best time, it was a ball!” She exclaimed of her time on the Fox singing show.
After being forced to say goodbye to Chaka Khan in week two, fans of the series expressed their outrage for the iconic performers being sent home before other contestants on the show.
A livid viewer of the show tweeted: “I’m p****d to the height of p**stivity that legends keep getting voted off!!! It’s time to start drug testing the audience.
“They are OBVIOUSLY high on something!!! Ms. Chaka and Ms. Dionne are gone and the WHITE TIGER gets to ‘sing’ again?!”
“You mean to tell me that gronk made it further than Dionne and Chaka ??? Im done with this show,” another disapproving fan said.
Another angry watcher wrote: "Dionne Warwick getting voted off before a f**king taco I truly hate this audience every week.”
A twitter user noted of her fellow contestant’s performance: "Banana messed up the lyrics and the stupid audience sends Mrs. Dionne Warwick home?
“Are they nuts? What's the point of inviting these legendary singers if the audience has no taste or brains to pick talented people? Cancel it already! Disappointed.”
Both the judges and viewers of the show were shocked earlier this month when legend Chaka, 66, was sent home in only the second episode of the season.
Fans immediately expressed their anger online for her shocking exit over fellow contestant the White Tiger - almost unanimously believed to be Rob “Gronk” Gronkowski - who has been heavily criticized for his singing ability this season.
“YA KICKED OFF CHAKA KHAN AND KEPT THE WHITE TIGER? The audacity,” an enraged critic wrote online.
The “Super Nine” - which is the top three from groups A, B and C - will come together to battle it out for the top spot starting in April following a scheduled hiatus next month.
The Masked Singer airs Wednesday’s on Fox at 8pm EST.
