During the season 4 premiere, we met some of the secret celebrities competing for the coveted Golden Mask trophy this fall. The first set of costumed contenders, Group A, included Popcorn, Sun, Dragon, Snow Owls (a two-person costume!), and Giraffe. Then, we met Group B — Serpent, Crocodile, Baby Alien, Seahorse, Gremlin, and Whatchamacallit.
So, who is behind each mask? Like in past seasons, folks can look forward to getting some pop-culture detective help from the beloved judging panel — Robin Thicke, Jenny McCarthy, Nicole Scherzinger, and Ken Jeong. Of course, recognizing that they sometimes don't always have super-great guesses (looking at you, Ken), we're also here to help you come up with top-notch predictions. Below, you'll find key clues and the best theories out there for all of your favorite season 4 cast members.
Here are the top Masked Singer spoilers for season 4, as well as predictions and guesses based on the clues revealed so far in the competition:
Who Is Baby Alien?
Top Guesses: Jeff Dunham, Matthew Broderick, Sam Riegel
The Real Identity: Mark Sanchez
The Masked Singer Revealed: Okay fine, we were way off with this one. But in our defense, Baby Alien was a super tough one to figure out. Alas, everything made sense once we looked back at the clues. The Tony Award in Baby Alien's clue package was a nod at his appearance as a guest presenter at the ceremony in 2010, while the hot dog referred to Mark's viral moment when he ate a hot dog on the sidelines during a football game.

Who Is Giraffe?
Top Guesses: Peyton Manning, RuPaul, Lin-Manuel Miranda, Fred Durst
The Real Identity: Brian Austin Green
The Masked Singer Revealed: Everyone was stunned when Brian revealed himself to be Giraffe. Turns out, the 90210 star followed in his on-screen girlfriend's footsteps (Tori Spelling was on The Masked Singer in season one).

Who is Gremlin?
Top Guesses: Howie Mandel, Ice Cube, Bear Grylls.
The Real Identity: Mickey Rourke
The Masked Singer Revealed: Claiming that his costume was too hot, Gremlin insisted that host Nick Cannon help take his mask off right after his performance. And so, for the first time in Masked Singer history, there was no official elimination. Instead, Gremlin revealed himself to be the Oscar-nominated actor. In case you're curious though, the iron in Gremlin's package refers to Mickey's part in Iron Man 2. Also, the "love to cook" line from the video hints at Mickey's pen name "Eddie Cook."

Who Is Dragon?
Top Guesses: Pierce Brosnan, Elon Musk
The Real Identity: Busta Rhymes
The Masked Singer Revealed: Looking at the clues before we heard Dragon take the stage, Pierce and Elon seemed like viable guesses. But the second the fire-breathing creature began singing "Mama Said Knock You Out" by LL Cool J, both Nicole and Robin instantly knew it was Busta. After all, it's hard to mask the Grammy-nominated rapper's iconic voice.

Who is Crocodile?
Top Guesses: Nick Carter, Neil Patrick Harris, Donnie Wahlberg
The Masked Singer Evidence Revealed: This croc is definitely giving out boy band vibes, which is why Donnie and Nick both make the list of suspects. Nick especially lines up with the Italian flag clue (he's part Italian) and the Vegas clue (The Backstreet Boys had a residency in Vegas for two years) from Crocodile's first clue package. Neil, meanwhile, is not yet off the hook. The pineapple in Croc's clue package could be in reference to the iconic pineapple incident from How I Met Your Mother, a show Neil starred in.

Who is Whatchamacallit?
Top Guesses: Wiz, Khalifa, Neil Patrick Harris, Penn Jillette
The Masked Singer Evidence Revealed: Whatchamacallit has a special connection to magic, which is why folks instantly thought of Penn. Neil, too, is a magic fan, having formerly served as president of the members-only magic club The Magic Castle. But after more consideration, the internet is also keeping an eye on Wiz. Why? The rapper's first mixtape was named Kush & Orange Juice, which could match up with the oranges in Whatchamacallit's clue package. Oh yeah, and those bumble bees flying around? They're black and yellow, which happens to be the name of Wiz's platinum hit song.

Who is Seahorse?
Top Guesses: Tori Kelly, Halle Bailey, Emily Blunt
The Masked Singer Evidence Revealed: Seahorse recognizes that "living in the ocean can be dangerous" and that it's "always good to find a quiet place to hide." Not only is Halle going to be playing Ariel in the upcoming Little Mermaid remake, but one of her songs off her band Chloe x Halle's latest album has lyrics relating to hiding and the ocean. Suspicious, yes, but so is Emily. Why? There appears to be a reference to A Quiet Place in the clue package, which, of course, is a movie Emily starred in. That said, we think Tori is the best guess out there at the moment. Apart from Seahorse sounding like Tori, the rainbow frog in Seahorse's clue video perfectly lines up with the fact that Tori sang "Rainbow Connection" with Kermit the Frog in 2016.

Who is Serpent?
Top Guesses: Leslie Odom Jr., Chris Jackson, Dr. Elvis Francois
The Masked Singer Evidence Revealed: It just has to be Leslie! Remember Serpent's clue about "#31118"? As a brilliant Redditor pointed out, “3- Leslie has put out 3 albums! 11- he has been in 11 Broadway/off-Broadway productions (including workshops), 18- he’s done Broadway from 1998-2016!" But wait, what about Chris? Serpent aspires to "new heights," and Chris performed in the 2005 musical In the Heights. Plus, we can't forget about Dr. Francois, who went viral for singing to patients at the Mayo Clinic. Dr. Francois also makes so much sense when examining the clues. Hmm ...

Who Is Popcorn?
Top Guesses: Taylor Dayne, Sofia Carson, Lacey Chabert
The Masked Singer Evidence Revealed: Popcorn's first clue was, "Mirror, mirror, on the wall, what makes me the biggest miracle of all?" Fans immediately pointed to Sofia, since she plays the daughter of the Evil Queen on Disney's The Descendants. At the same time, some online are making a convincing case for Lacey, saying that Popcorn's sparkly gloves are adorned with bling that looks a lot like infinity stones from The Spectacular Spider-Man (Lacey voiced Gwen Stacy for the series). However, the most compelling guess is Taylor, especially because Popcorn says that she built her career around love, and we can see the recurring theme in Taylor's hit singles "Tell It to My Heart", "Love Will Lead You Back," "Prove Your Love," and "I'll Always Love You."

Who Is Sun?
Top Guesses: LeAnn Rimes, Lindsey Vonn, Christina Aguilera
The Masked Singer Evidence Revealed: So far, Sun says they know "how to shine like a torch even during the freezing winter." Sun has also "set quite a few records." LeAnn has long been a record setter in her music career, most notably for becoming the youngest person to win a Grammy at 14 years old. Still, Lindsey makes a lot of sense for the torch clue, especially considering she is a Winter Olympic medalist and champion. Of course, there's also Christina, who not only has a phenomenal voice like The Sun, but also has several gold-certified albums (which matches up with the "Gold Member" card clue), and also has a strong connection with Disney, as she appeared on Disney's Mickey Mouse Club in 1993.

Who Are the Snow Owls?
Top Guesses: Nick and Vanessa Lachey, Carlos and Alexa PenaVega, Clint Black and Lisa Hartman
The Masked Singer Evidence Revealed: A promo video designated one owl as "Mr. Owl" and the other "Mrs. Owl," making many believe the duo costume is disguising a famous married couple. Nick and Vanessa have emerged recently due to their involvement in Love Is Blind, while Carlos and Alexa make sense because they both can sing. However, we think it's country music couple Clint and Lisa, especially once you hear the Owls belt out a tune.
