From Hugh Jackman to Robert Pattinson all the Hollywood stars who turned superheroes for India amid Covid-19 2nd wave

As India fights a second wave of the coronavirus pandemic, many people, including celebrities, have come forward to do their bit -- be it the amplification of pleas for help, or starting donation drives. Hollywood stars, including Hugh Jackman, Nick Jonas, Robert Pattinson, among many more, have also voiced their concerns over the conditions in India.

Many among these have donated to Priyanka Chopra's joint initiative for the purpose, in collaboration with GiveIndia. Many others have amplified calls for donation.

Here's a look at all the Hollywood stars who have done their bit in order to help India fight Covid-19.

Hugh Jackman

Priyanka thanked Hugh for his gesture.

He shared a poster for Priyanka's fundraiser on Instagram Stories, and wrote, "Support India."

Lilly Collins

She is an ambassador of GO Campaign and has urged everyone to support the cause. "I have such beautiful memories of my time in India and the country will always hold such a special place in my heart. Please join me and my friends at GO Campaign to bring immediate relief to families there today," a PTI report quoted her as saying.

Robert Pattinson

The Batman actor has partnered with GO Campaign to raise funds for the country, according to a Variety report. "Think of GO as a really meaningful investment fund – they take your dollars and invest them in children, in a diverse portfolio, for maximum results. And the common thread is those heroes, their proven track record, their commitment to serving children," he said.

Ewan McGregor

Ewan has also partnered with GO and urged fans to support the cause. GO Campaign will provide PPE, emergency food, medicine, pulse oximeters, and resuscitators in India.

Nick Jonas has joined hands with his wife Priyanka to raise $1 million for India's Covid-19 relief.

Shawn Mendes

The singer donated $50,000 towards international author and podcaster Jay Shetty's fundraiser Help India Breathe.

Camila Cabello

The singer has raised $6,000 towards the Help India Breathe fund.

Ellen DeGeneres

She raised $59,000 towards Jay Shetty's relief fund.

Will Smith and Jada Pinkett Smith

They donated $50,000 towards the Help India Breathe fund.

Sharing the details about the Covid-19 cases in India, the Roar singer urged her fans to donate for oxygen supplies to help India.


Robert Pattinson: 'I like perversity, I don't care what people think'

Robert Pattinson made his name in teen-friendly franchises Harry Potter and Twilight, but his latest Oscar-nominated film - The Lighthouse - is more X-rated.

He tells Sky News: "There was a moment there was a shot where the Lighthouse was literally a phallus. When I saw it I didn't even realise what it was. They cut it out."

He jokes that the member in question possibly belonged to the film's director, Robert Eggers.

Willem Dafoe on The Lighthouse and superhero films

The film is about two Victorian lighthouse keepers - Thomas Wake (played by Willem Dafoe) and Ephraim Winslow (played by Pattinson) - who find themselves thrust together on a rocky outcrop off North America in 1890.

Eggers was inspired to make the movie after reading about a real-life tragedy in 1801, where two Welsh lighthouse keepers were left stranded during a storm, resulting in one dying and one going crazy.

While The Lighthouse doesn't retell their tale, Eggers used it as a jumping off point for the film.

Describing it as a study in identity, Eggers joked: "Nothing good can happen when two men are left alone in a giant phallus."

First look at Robert Pattinson as Batman

Like his co-star, Pattinson says Eggers was a man he was keen to work with.

"I thought it was very original. I'd been reading a lot of scripts at the time and it just really stood out. I wanted to work with Robert anyway, I really liked him and I love The Witch.

"There was just something so fascinating about it - it was really ambitious, it felt well researched, it just felt like a world when you read it.

"And when you get these characters doing such extreme behaviour, then I just knew it would be really fun to play."

Dafoe plays a lighthouse keeper, alongside Pattinson who plays a new lighthouse recruit.

The two lighthouse keepers (or 'wickies') quickly form a love-hate relationship.

It's a dynamic that seems to have transferred to the actors.

Pattinson's role in particular called for him to scrub, fetch and carry in all weathers on nearly every day of the 32-day shoot.

The gruelling nature of the role left him vomiting, eating mud, even wetting himself on set in order to get into character.

His on-set antics are rumoured to have become so exaggerated, Eggers was forced to reprimand him for fear of irritating his 64-year-old co-star.

Pattinson says his behaviour was a bi-product of the role: "When you can do these scenes where it's just really extreme and you can see in the scene what's required of you, you need to be super hyped up.

"But at the end of the day, it was just lovely because you just spent every single drop of energy you had, and then go home. I was sleeping amazingly every single night because we'd just been screaming the whole day."

Another on-screen adversary, but one with less influence on set, was a trained seagull.

With swooping flocks reminiscent of Hitchcock's The Birds, it's a partnership that doesn't end will for either party.

Despite the on-set-challenges, the 33-year-old actor says he wasn't afraid to step outside his comfort zone.

On the contrary, he relished the opportunity: "There's a part of me which kind of likes the sort of. I like perversity in something you kind of think… I don't know.

"I think a lot of people like to play things pretty safe and once you've broken that fear of, 'Oh, what will people think if I do this?', when you just do it once, then you're like, 'Now I realise I don't actually care what people think, and it's fun."

Pattinson goes on: "People come out of a movie theatre being like, 'What was that?' I mean, it's an exciting feeling. That's just the world I want to I want to be part of."

And it's a world in which he's constantly reinvented himself, proving he's not afraid to push boundaries.

Left field choices including indie films The Rover, the Safdie brothers' Good Time and erotic horror High Life have paved the way for a movie like The Lighthouse.

The mermaid masturbation scenes of The Lighthouse couldn't be further from J K Rowling's wizarding world.

But Pattinson says he didn't have to work too hard to overcome his inhibitions.

"There's something weirdly protected about doing a movie, doing almost anything in a movie, even though more people will see it. There's just that little, strange line and I'll say, 'It's not real' - but it is real. It's really bizarre.

"I'm a lot more confident if there's a camera there than if there isn't… Otherwise I'm just like a nervous wreck."

With a superhero role in the bag, Pattinson's confidence will soon be called on in spades.

It may be the best reception at Cannes thus far.

When the Safdie brothers arrived for the premiere of their heist thriller Good Time, starring Robert Pattinson , the night started out with early cheers the minute they stepped up to the Palais .

Inside the theater, everyone in the orchestra and balcony started screaming once they saw Pattinson on the big screen pulling up to the venue.

Josh Safdie danced while waiting to get into the Palais, and the film’s co-star Buddy Duress threw up his arms to get the crowd going.

When the competition film finished screening, it received a tremendous applause as soon as the credits came onscreen, and when the lights came up, the crowd went wild. Whistles, cheering and yells of “Great job!” and “Bravo!” could be heard, and at the tail end of the film’s six-minute standing ovation, a chant carried throughout the orchestra up to the balcony.

Both filmmaking brothers had tears in their eyes, especially Benny Safdie , who also stars in the pic .

In The Hollywood Reporter’s review of Good Time, critic David Roone y called it “a riveting-race-against-time thriller with a pounding heart,” adding, “The movie is bracing stuff &mdash lean and punchy &mdash that heightens expectations for the Safdies ‘ next project, the Martin Scorsese -produced Diamond District thriller Uncut Gems.”

The winner of the 70th annual Cannes Film Festival will be revealed Sunday.

Alert: Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson Reunited Over the Weekend

The Twilight stars were spotted chatting at a party on Saturday night, and fans are FREAKING out.

Warning: Twilight fans, you might want to sit down for this news. This past weekend, Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson were spotted together for the first time since they broke up seemingly for good back in 2013. Yes, Bella and Edward were at the same party and actually interacted and life suddenly makes sense again.

The exes both attended a party for Lily-Rose Depp (Johnny Depp&rsquos daughter) at Chateau Marmont in LA on Saturday, according to the Daily Mail. The two were snapped talking outside the party and literally my heart can&rsquot handle it. (Check out the pics here and just try not to read into it.) This also happens to be the first time the pair were photographed since their last public appearance as a couple at an airport back in 2012.

This isn't the first time Kristen and Rob have hung out recently. Back in February, the former couple supposedly reunited at a bar in Los Angeles . And in April, OK! Magazine reported that Robsten had &ldquogotten together a few times over the past several weeks&rdquo. &ldquoThey're trying to keep it low-key, but there's still chemistry there," a source told the publication. "People in their circles are starting to wonder if they're considering a reconciliation.&rdquo

Now, before you go jumping to any conclusions (or is that just me?), it doesn&rsquot appear that Kristen and Robert are getting back together. Although RPatz is now single following his split from FKA Twigs last fall, Kristen is still reportedly dating Victoria's Secret model Stella Maxwell. They were last seen in Cannes together in May. Plus, there&rsquos the fact that Kristen cheated on Robert with her Snow White and the Huntsman director Rupert Sanders. So it&rsquos more likely that the exes just bumped into each other at the party and are now on friendly terms.

However, for those of us who still hold out hope for our favorite Twilight couple to reunite IRL, does a love like this ever really die?

People's Choice Awards: Katy Perry Could've Had a Big Night (Like Robert Pattinson and Emma Stone!)

Maybe Katy Perry shouldn't have skipped the 2012 People's Choice Awards.

Wouldn't collecting on five of seven nominations, including Favorite Female Artist, have cheered her up?! But then again, Favorite Movie Actor Johnny Depp wasn't even there, so maybe she didn't miss out on too much.

What Perry most certainly did miss, however, was a breezy, fun evening full of lighthearted ribbing, a parade of stars based largely on who's got a movie or show coming out, a smattering of awards also based on who's available to show up, and How I Met Your Mother's first win in six tries for Favorite Network TV Comedy.

And in a non-eligible year for Twilight, there had to be something for Robert Pattinson to do, right?!

Of course! The British heartthrob—seated next to Betty White and sporting a questionable buzz cut—was on hand to accept the Favorite Drama Movie Award for the apparently somewhat-seen Water for Elephants.

The unequivocal hit Bridesmaids was named Favorite Comedy Movie. Maya Rudolph, Ellie Kemper, Wendi McClendon-Covey and director Paul Feig burst into an impromptu performance of Wilson Philips' "Hold On"—and producer Judd Apatow did his best to keep up, but it was obvious he wasn't as well-versed in the 1980s classic as the rest.

"Wow!" Apatow exclaimed. "Thank you very much. I don't know why they asked me to accept it, it's really a lot of other people's work. When I was doing this movie, it was so much fun doing it, but I was always saying to everyone I didn't even care if anyone saw it. But," he quickly added, "now that people have seen it and are giving awards for it, I'm even more thankful for the whole experience."

Adam Sandler, winner for Favorite Comedic Movie Actor for the second straight year despite Jack and Jill, donned a suit in real life for the second time and read the heartfelt speech he had prepared for "you, the so-called people."

For the first time, Sandler sweetly thanked his public-school teachers, including "Always Smiling Guy With the Plaid Pants" and "Mr. Gym Shorts With the Tip Hanging Out," the latter of which got quite the laugh from Pattinson.

The lovely Emma Stone was named Favorite Movie Actress and Comedic Movie Actress, having impressed in both The Help and Crazy, Stupid, Love.

Speaking of Betty White before, you can bet your sweet britches that Hot in Cleveland was named Favorite Cable TV Comedy. The almost-nonagenerian star joined her fellow castmates-of-a-certain-age in accepting.

"This is so encouraging to a bunch of fresh-faced newcomers like us," Wendy Malick said. "She drinks a lot," Betty chimed in.

"And lastly, happy 90th birthday to Betty White next week," Jane Leeves added, prompting a standing ovation.

"Ninety just happened, I didn't do anything!" the Golden Girl protested.

Morgan Freeman was also a big-deal get, having topped George Clooney, Harrison Ford, Tom Hanks and Robert De Niro to be named Favorite Movie Icon.

"When I found out Iɽ been nominated for the first-ever People's Choice Movie Icon award, I decided to look up 'icon,'" the sonorous Oscar winner began. "So, here's what I found: The first definition says an icon is a tiny picture on a computer screen that represents a file. Well!

"The second definition says, an icon is an image of someone who is saintly. The third definition says an icon is someone representative of something. All right. So, if I represent something, here's what I hope it is: To all of you who were kind enough to vote for me, I hope I represent a working actor who is so incredibly proud to be in this business, humbled and honored to be mentioned in the same company as my fellow nominees, and forever grateful for this honor. Thank you so much."

We imagine that next year he'll be winning the People's Choice Award for Favorite Speech.

Fans of The Hunger Games, i.e. everyone, were also given a little thrill—not to mention a possible preview of People's Choice (and MTV Movie and Teen Choice) Award recipients to come—when costars Liam Hemsworth and Jennifer Lawrence teamed up (and looked damn hot doing so) to present Favorite TV Drama Actress to Nina Dobrev.

Who, FYI, was happily seated next to Ian Somerhalder, despite buzz that the cute couple are on the outs.

Neil Patrick Harris, freshly out of Gleehab (where bad former awards-show hosts are sent when they just can't stop trying to steal the spotlight from other hosts), was named Favorite TV Comedy Actor—which we fully expected, considering he was there.

"The three people most important in my life are David Burtka and my twins, Gideon and Harper, who better be asleep right now. in the limo at the valet outside," Harris deadpanned.

Lea Michele, who may actually need Gleehab one day, won for Favorite TV Comedy Actress.

The always-entertaining Ellen DeGeneres picked up her third Waterford-crystal trophy, this time for Favorite Daytime TV Host (the nomenclature is always evolving, you know).

The cast of Favorite Cable TV Drama Pretty Little Liars was tasked with naming a handful of winners in absentia, including Favorite TV Celebreality Star Kim Kardashian and Favorite R&B Artist Rihanna.

Demi Lovato, looking resplendent in red, performed her new single "Give Your Heart a Break" and also picked up the trophy for Favorite Pop Artist.

"The artists I was up against are people I look up to and aspire to be one day," the 19-year-old said admiringly of the likes of Katy Perry and Beyoncé, neither of whom were in the house tonight, for understandable reasons. "And I won this award because of my fans. I dedicate this to you guys. You guys are absolutely amazing."

"Thank you mom and dad for making me, which was cool," Adam Levine said, accepting the award for Favorite Band along with the rest of Maroon 5.

Robert Pattinson Reveals the Hardest Part of His Breakup with Kristen Stewart

It wasn’t the cheating. As painful as that was, it happens all the time in relationships between young people.

No, Robert Pattinson says the hardest part of his breakup with Kristen Stewart was the aftermath, when he was asked to talk about his Twilight costar’s cheating scandal in public.

“S––– happens, you know?” Pattinson tells British Esquire in its September issue about Stewart’s fling with director Rupert Sanders. “It’s just young people it’s normal! And honestly, who gives a s–––?”

Well, lots of people did. And that, says Pattinson, was indeed difficult.

“The hardest part was talking about it afterwards. Because when you talk about other people, it affects them in ways you can’t predict,” says the actor, 28. “It’s like that scene in Doubt [the 2008 film in which Philip Seymour Hoffman plays a priest suspected of inappropriate behavior], where he’s talking about how to take back gossip? They throw all those feathers from a pillow into the sky and you’ve got to go and collect all the feathers.”

It’s been two years since that scandal, and more than a year since the couple split for good after a brief reconciliation. And Pattinson continues to move beyond his Twilight days – personally and professionally.

For one thing, though still 𠇊 relatively solitary person,” he’s learned to deal with fame better, and isn’t as bothered by the paparazzi.

“There was a time, three years ago, when I didn’t know where to live where I wouldn’t be trapped in my home, you know?” he says. 𠇋ut I worked it out. It’s not that big a deal in the end. Half of it is in your head.”

He’s also been taking challenging roles in movies from auteurs David Cronenberg, Werner Herzog and Anton Corbijn. That’s been fulfilling, though not without its moments of anxiety – like when he had to film a sex scene with Julianne Moore for Cronenberg’s Maps to the Stars and things got strange.

“I noticed I was sweating. Like really heavy sweat,” Pattinson says. “I remember trying to catch the drops as they fell onto her back. It was weird. Huge splashing drops. At one point she turned around and said, 𠆊re you all right?’ ”

Pattinson is indeed all right. “I know what makes me happy, if I’m feeling down: doing things that make your friends jealous,” he says of life these days. “It really works! I just say, ‘I’m working with David Cronenberg,’ and they go, ‘Oh really?’ I love that.”


The 2010 Celebrity Style Hall of Shame

Undoubtedly, he is one of the biggest stars on earth and, for a certain subset of vapmiricly inclined boys and girls, its biggest sex symbol. Not that Pattinson doesn't try to dissuade them of it &mdash we've yet to see the man step out of his coffin with anything resembling a comb so much as touching his hair. The actor has admitted he's not big on bathing, and he most certainly prefers rather ratty, mismatched clothes. Pattinson even manages to make the smartest of suits look disheveled. If we could give Mr. Pattinson two pieces of advice on how to transition from tween heartthrob to legitimate actor and public figure it would be these: tuck in the shirt and wash that hair.

The Suggestion: Get a new hair stylist &mdash a messy, choppy main can be a signature, but no one should be remembered for sporting a rats' nest. Also, tuck in the shirt.

The Takeaway: Looking effortless takes a lot of effort, so pay attention to details like grooming, fit, and, you know, showering. Start with a good haircut and work your way down.

He may play the same character onscreen as he does off it, but, hey, the man-child has made it big by starring in Judd Apatow cash cows, writing two booky wookies, sticking with stand-up, and, you know, marrying Katy Perry. We get it: Russell Brand is a performance artist and the world is his stage. All we're asking is that he buttons one more button on his shirt. Just one and we'll leave him alone.

The Suggestion: You're married &mdash might be time to start separating Dr. Jekyll from Mr. Hyde. Even a little.

The Takeaway: Being comfortable in your own skin &mdash and clothes &mdash is the best way to exude confidence. Unbuttoning no more than two buttons of a proper dress shirt is the best way to exude good taste.

We've already discussed the Facebook muppet's sartorial choices at some length. Hell, we even suggested him as a stylish Halloween costume. But just to reiterate: no matter how much money you have or how many people's secrets you hold in your digital palm, you cannot show up to a black-tie event in a t-shirt and jeans and expect to be taken seriously. Seriously.

The Suggestion: You just gave a hundred million to Newark's schools. Would it kill you to throw a couple thousand to, say, Zegna for a couple of nice suits? Even Bill Gates wears a sport coat, for chrissakes.

The Takeaway: Even if you are the next M.Z., and your ideas will change the world as we know it, you still have to meet those angel investors face-to-face. And they'll take you more seriously if you're wearing the right kind of jacket.

You must understand that, the fantastic beard notwithstanding, it's been a tough year for him. Rock bottom is hard to bounce back from, whether it's fake or not. And while his clean-shaven appearance on Letterman sure had him on his way, that look &mdash the tie-to-collar ratio, the length-of-leg-to-length-of-pant issues &mdash sure has him on this list. But he's getting there.

The Suggestion: You're not as svelte as you once were, so widen those ties and lapels with the waistline. It's all about staying in proportion.

The Takeaway: The fatter the man, the fatter the tie. In general, mix it up around the neck.

Everyone in Hollywood does it, but Mr. Carey has that unenviable ability to look like he borrowed someone's clothes. From his furnishing choices to the fit of his suits, Cannon just doesn't look quite right. We'd let him off the hook (as we do with many other celebrities of only mild offensiveness) if it weren't for that look on his face that always seems to say, Damn, I look good.

The Suggestion: Those peak lapels and "strong" shoulders? Looks like your older brother's suit. Try some softer construction when it comes to jacket selection.

The Takeaway: We're all for a bold pattern, but pick one item of clothing for it. A strong pin stripe, a pattern pocket square, and a bright tie can add up to a whole bunch of confusion. Especially if the tie is bright green.

If there were a multiple-choice test with even the simplest of questions &mdash "What are the tell-tale signs of a clichéd hipster?" &mdash there's little doubt the Gossip Girl guy would be the living embodiment of "E: ALL OF THE ABOVE."

The Suggestion: Look yourself in the mirror in the morning. Remove one accessory. Repeat. Or just lose the deep V.

The Takeaway: The more accessories and trends you pile on yourself, the more contrived it all looks.

Here's the thing about Jared Leto: he's like a really pretty punk girl. You know the type, with her ripped jeans, combat boots, months in between hair washings &mdash it is a constant battle against beauty. For some girls it works. It makes them more appealing. It does not work for any man. Jared Leto is a handsome man. He looks good in clothes. He needs to cut out all the theatrical bullshit.

The Suggestion: In 2010, the least "punk" option available is your mohawk.

The Takeaway: Even if you're a well-dressed rocker, really only one item of clothing at a time should make a big statement &mdash and it shouldn't be written on a t-shirt.

And not just because of the whole naked-with-a-hooker thing. All three of these men have been famous for the better part of two decades now, and all three have stopped giving a damn about how they look. All three have a crutch they fall back on, and it's due time someone kicked it out from under them.

The Suggestion: Spade: the trucker thing? For kids. Sheen: bowling shirts? For bowling. Cage: toupees? At least grow back the sideburns.

The Takeaway: Dressing your age doesn't have to mean giving up on style, but it does mean giving up on skate shoes.

There was a time when America considered John Mayer a promising, handsome young man. Hell, he even worked for us. This is not that time. As he has devolved into something of a whiny philanderer, so, too, have the shape of his shirts (either too bag or, as at left, too tight), the sag of his pants, and the flop of his hair. Maybe it's a social experiment to see how long he can keep romancing women even as he lets himself go. Our guess is not much longer.

The Suggestion: No matter how many tattoos you get, preppy basics will continue to look good on you &mdash better, even. Don't fight it.

The Takeaway: No break at the hem? That's modern and clean &mdash a good pant fit. Pants above the ankle? Not even appropriate for the flood plains.

His position on clothes is the same as on most issues: inflexible and presented in poor taste. One thing we can say is that he's been remarkably consistent over the years in his poor choices in neckwear and proclivity for mock turtlenecks. You'd think he'd show a little more flair living in that house of his. Then again, the Liberace look might not go over so well with the Tea Party.

The Suggestion: A little subtlety in your tie choices could do wonders for that reputation of yours. Sartorially, at least.

The Takeaway: The impression of calm and balance in a wardrobe can lull your opponents into a false sense of security. This comes in handy once it's time to yell.


'The Masked Singer' Robopine makes a fast and furious exit

For weeks now, pretty much every Masked Singer Season 5 viewer on Twitter has insisted that the Robopine is Tyrese Gibson. In fact, #Tyrese has trended every Wednesday night. And the prickly pop star did always sound like the Fast and Furious actor. But I, being a trusting person as well as a viewer who pores over the show’s clues like a forensic detective, knew it just could not be him.

Why? Well, for starters, the Robopine said he was a 60-year-old grandfather Tyrese is 42 and has two daughters who are ages 2 and 13. The Robopine said he spent his childhood in Costa Rica Tyrese grew up in Los Angeles. (Trust me, the search term “tyrese gibson costa rica” is still cached in my browser history.) Many other Robopine clues simply did not align with Tyrese’s real-life backstory — so much so that I once even guessed that the Robopine was MC Hammer, who certainly isn’t known to soulfully croon the way the Robopine sang Boyz II Men’s “Water Runs Dry” this Wednesday, but at least was the right age.

Well, readers… I feel gaslit. The Robopine was Tyrese all along! Perhaps that throne clue we saw a few weeks ago was supposed to represent Tyrese’s throne of lies. “I was completely a character,” he proclaimed after his ceremonial unmasking this Wednesday, telling the judges, “Everything about my backstory that I had to create was because I know all of y'all personally."

“I think you played the game better than just about anybody on the show,” judge Ken Jeong told him.

Please note, even though all four judges had initially guessed that the Robopine was Jamie Foxx, Jamie also didn’t fit the Robopine’s fake profile. The judges just ignored his claim that he was 60 years old, because he moved like such a well-oiled groove machine that they automatically assumed he was lying about his age. This week, however, Nicole Scherzinger (who was crushing hard) and guest judge Chrissy Metz actually guessed this was Tyrese. I suppose I should have listened to them… or, you know, to the entire internet. (To be fair, certain Robopine clues about “watts” and superheroes were based in truth. And I should have expected this stunt from the man who brought us the double concept album Alter Ego.)

Oh well. Assuming that the remaining five costumed contestants are actually telling the truth, I do feel confident about my other guesses. See below:

The Yeti, “It Takes Two”

I have a feeling this adorable snowman is internationally known. He certainly can rock a microphone. And he came to get down! After last week’s heartstring-tugging “Lonely” ballad, this week the Yeti flipped the script (and did the splits!) with this funky-fresh old-school performance. “It was just so dope,” gushed Nicole.

Clues: We learned that the Yeti has kids (including a daughter) and a deep bond with his “nana.” We also saw a baby pacifier and a corn cob. (“Corn popped into my mind,” he explained.) Past clues have included the letters “ABCD” (with the D highlighted), donuts, New Year’s Eve party hats, and “love, love, love.”

Judges’ guesses: Vin Diesel, Jason Derulo, Trey Songz, Miguel.

My guess: This is R&B singer, dynamite dancer, and father-of-two Omarion, who has starred in Love & Hip-Hop, America’s Best Dance Crew (or ABDC), and Corn Pops commercials. The New Year’s clues refer to his former boy band B2K (Boys of the New Millennium), and the O-shaped donuts are a play on the title of his solo album, O. Plus, the Yeti sounds just like him. Case closed.

The Piglet, “Against All Odds (Take a Look at Me Now)”

Former girl group member Nicole instantly recognized the “boy-band cry” in the Piglet’s voice as he hammed it up on this melodramatic Phil Collins power ballad. “I feel like you wanted it the most,” she said. “For me, that was one of your strongest performances.”

Clues: He has an apple-shaped birthmark on the side of his head, which he only found out about when he shaved his head in college. We also learned that he’s “caught touchdowns from [Miami Dolphins quarterback] Dan Marino.” We saw the numbers one through five (with the four on the floor), vampire teeth, and gold bars this week, while past visual clues have included an orange foam-finger peace sign, a UFO, cotton candy (which he said reminded him of “one of his first jobs”), and barbecue grilling. He has frequently mentioned that he used to be unlucky in love but is now happily married.

Judges’ guesses: Ian Somerhalder, Robert Pattinson, Taylor Lautner, Brian Littrell, Nick Lachey.

My guess: This is Nick Lachey — who found out about his secret birthmark when he shaved his head in college. If that, along with the fact that the Piglet sounds exactly like Nick, isn’t enough, one of Nick’s first gigs was singing at Cincinnati’s Kings Island amusement park (where cotton candy is served), his doomed first marriage was chronicled on three seasons of MTV’s Newlyweds, he starred in the vampire horror flick Rise: Blood Hunter, and that grilling clue is a reference to his gold-selling boy band, 98 Degrees. Also, here’s a photo of him with Dan Marino. Case closed.

The Black Swan, “Do I Do”

The Swan is definitely the best power-belter left in the competition — the Season 5 equivalent of another ex-teen star who won last season, LeAnn “The Sun” Rimes. As Ken noted, “Everything about her is perfection.” To hear her take on a Stevie Wonder classic and sing it this well — and sing it while stuffed into a swan dress even weirder thank Björk’s! — was a wonder indeed.

Clues: We saw a black umbrella, a can of “Swan Kissed Soda,” and a map of New Hampshire. She used to busk on the streets as a kid and once broke a chart record set by Mariah Carey, and one of her favorite artists of all time is Stevie Wonder. In the past, she has mentioned being raised by a single mother and a legal battle that derailed her promising childhood career. Visual clues have included a stuffed rabbit, an “I’m late!” sign, and the state of Montana.

Judges’ guesses: Rihanna, Kesha, Christina Milian, Mandy Moore.

My guess: This is JoJo, whose pre-fame demo, recorded in 2001, featured a Stevie Wonder cover. JoJo then scored a hit with “Too Little, Too Late,” which broke the record previously held by Mariah Carey’s “Loverboy” for the biggest jump into the top three on the Billboard Hot 100. JoJo spent part of her childhood (with her single momager) in New Hampshire, was in a fight with her record label for years, and was originally approached to play Hannah Montana. And that rabbit is also a JoJo pun. Case closed.

The Russian Dolls, “Shallow”

Move over, Ally and Jackson Maine! This Oscar-worthy performance, which “stripped to the core” the essence of the Dolls’ dreamy vocals, was their most gorgeous moment yet. Judge Jenny McCarthy-Wahlberg described their harmonies as “epic.” Robin Thicke admitted that he’d thought this would be their “greatest challenge,” but they clearly aced it. Robin told them, “You were able to show a new version of yourself, and I think you just got yourself to the finals.”

Clues: They were “harshly criticized” by “haters” back in the day, even for how they looked, but then they “embraced not being the coolest” and connected with a fanbase of “outsiders.” We also saw a wok, and nickel and dime, pop art, and a kangaroo (because “you never know how many joeys are going to pop out”). Past clues have included a Partridge Family-style tour bus, a softball field, the letter M, a serious health scare, and Carnegie Hall.

Judges’ guesses: Hanson, Nickelback, Chad Kroeger and Avril Lavigne.

My guess: This is Hanson. I knew that when producers made the huge mistake of leaking their “Shallow” performance two months ago, not realizing just how instantly identifiable the brothers’ epic harmonies are. Hanson have suffered two health scares (eldest brother Isaac’s pulmonary embolism and youngest brother Zac’s motorcycle accident), they got their big break singing at a South by Southwest softball game, they’ve played Carnegie Hall, and they released an album called The Walk. (Get it? Wok?) And here’s a Yahoo interview with the “Weird” trio about how they were “traumatized” and felt like “outsiders” as kids. Case closed.

The Chameleon, “Put Your Hands Where My Eyes Could See”

The Chameleon’s neon-rave performance was one of the coolest productions I’ve ever seen on The Masked Singer, very Tyler-the-Creator-at-the-2020-Grammys. Everyone really wanted to party with him. “That was some lit legit-ness. … That was crazy,” Nicole raved (pun intended). “You have to be a hip-hop artist for real,” said Ken.

Clues: We found out he’s a “military kid” and a friend of the Dragon, aka Masked Singer Season 4 contestant Busta Rhymes, whose song the Chameleon covered tonight. We also saw orange slices, a plate of (pot?) “brownies for $ale,” a toy airplane, a captain’s hat, and an old-school sneaker. In the past, we’ve learned that he’s worked on the “big screen” and has been nominated for a Golden Globe, and saw references to martial arts, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, chicken wings, a black-and-yellow taxicab, tailoring, and cheese.

Judges’ guesses: Young Thug, Snoop Dogg.

My guess: Snoop wouldn’t be a bad guess — he even told Yahoo Entertainment in a 2020 interview that he’d love to compete on The Masked Singer — but this doesn’t sound at all like the Doggfather. This is Snoop’s friend and collaborator (and Busta Rhymes’s friend and collaborator), Wiz Khalifa. Wiz is a proud military brat, a member of the Taylor Gang, a Brazilian jiu-jitsu and Muay Thai expert, and the recording artist behind “This Plane,” “Captain,” “Black and Yellow,” a Ninja Turtle theme, “Chicken With the Cheese,” and the Golden Globe-nominated “See You Again.” And the title of Wiz’s mixtape Kush & Orange Juice explains two of this week’s clues. Case closed!
