NICOLE Scherzinger doubled down on her suspicions that Billy Porter is underneath the leopard costume on Wednesday’s The Masked Singer.
The 41-year-old guessed at the leopard’s identity as the skeleton was revealed on the Fox show.
The skeleton turned out to be Paul Shaffer, 69, David Letterman’s former sidekick.
He was unmasked on the show, after Robin Thicke and Jenny McCarthy had correctly guessed his true identity.
The professional musician described it as the “most bizarre thing I’ve done in my entire career,” after his big reveal.
He sang Jet’s Are You Gonna Be My Girl as the six remaining contestants faced off on the show.
Shaffer joins Dr Drew, fighter Laila Ali, Olympian Johnny Weir and videogame streamer Tyler “Ninja” Blevins in being eliminated from season 2 of the hit show.
Flamingo, Leopard, Black Widow, Skelton, Thingamajig and Butterfly gave their second performances of the season.
The Flamingo had the panel of Ken Jeong, McCarthy, Scherzinger and Robin Thicke debating between Adrienne Bailon, Ally Brooke and Kandi Burruess.
Thingamajig had the panel and viewers puzzled.
