Following Banana Split’s sun-drenched rendition of Arthur Freed’s “Singin ‘in the Rain”, the challengers were joined by Thicke for Stevie Wonder’s playful “Don’t You Worry’ bout a Thing”.
Before Scherzinger joined Queen of Hearts on stage, the performance of Sia’s “Bird Set Free” contestant moved the panelist to tears. Together, the Pussycat Dolls singer and masked celebrity gave their own take on Aerosmith’s “Dream On”.
Queen of Hearts’ voice and fandom were enough to carry her to next season’s finale. Meanwhile, the stars inside the Banana Split costume had to … well, to divide.

But before they packed their bags and unmasked, the stars of the incognito heard the panel’s first impressions and final guesses.
Who were the two celebrities inside the Banana Split costume?
Thicke traded his initial instincts of “Jennifer Nettles and That Other Guy” for OneRepublic’s Ryan Tedder and “Bleeding Love” singer Leona Lewis. Ken Jeong, Jenny McCarthy and Scherzinger all initially guessed that married musical couple Katharine McPhee and David Foster were inside the costumes and stuck on their instincts.
In the end, much to Thicke’s surprise, the majority of the panel was right.
“We bow down, we are not worthy,” host Nick Cannon told the married couple, to applause from the rest of the panel. “It is an honor to have you on our stage. What was it like to be Banana Split? “
“You literally feel like you’re part of a weird circus act,” McPhee said.
Foster added, “I don’t have the pleasure of knowing Ken (Jeong) although I’m a big fan. But the other three that I know and so it was pretty exciting trying to cheat on them but we didn’t. haven’t really fooled them. ”
Earlier in the series, Thick playfully ignored the theory that Banana Split could be McPhee and Foster.
“When I was born, David Foster and my dad (‘Growing Pains’ star Alan Thicke) were best friends,” Thicke said. “Let me tell you why it’s not Uncle Dave: because Uncle Dave is so proud of him and his job, he would never come on this show like a banana!” He would have come as a yacht, or helicopter, orca – or something! “
