The Masked Singer on FOX: Ken Jeong in tears after first correct guess of season 4

Comedy star Ken Jeong is infamous for his poor guessing skills on The Masked Singer, but his deduction skills finally won out during this week’s pivotal round. Emotional fans took to Twitter when the judge of Fox’s popular talent show gave a heartfelt thank you to the eliminated celeb.

Ken Jeong finally made his first correct guess on the fourth season of The Masked Singer’s US series.

The well-known comedic star of Community and The Hangover films may be one of the show’s favourite panellists, but he’s also notorious for his weak guess work.

After just one correct call in the third season, Jeong could finally be bucking the trend after identifying basketball player Lonzo Ball as Whatchamacallit.

The New Orleans Pelicans’ point guard was sent home tonight, Wednesday November 18, after his performance of Lean Back by Terror Squad ft. Fat Joe & Remy Ma.

Jeong literally jumped from his chair in excitement when the show’s host, Nick Cannon, unmasked the costumed contender, revealing the judge had finally got one right.

His reaction caused a storm on Twitter as fans rushed to congratulate the Masked Singer star.

One fan joked: “KEN got one RIGHT!??? Let me repent and confess ALL my sins. This is the end!!!”

Meanwhile, Ken Jeong himself took to his official Twitter page to coin the hashtag #KENSDAY to denote his victory on this week’s episode.

The singing sensation performed Andra Day’s Rise Up with Masked Singer judge Nicole Scherzinger, and he also released a cover of Imagine as a tribute to frontline workers near the start of the coronavirus pandemic.

A former physician himself, Ken Jeong transitioned into acting when he landed his breakout supporting role in Knocked Up.

When Dr. Elvis was revealed, Jeong choked up as he thanked his fellow doctor for all of his hard work keeping people healthy during the pandemic.

He said: “Your version of Imagine got us through the pandemic, man.

“I’m crying because I’m jealous than you’re more talented than me, but I just want you to know that you just got us through a very difficult time.”
