Keep refreshing/reloading this “The Masked Singer” live blog for the most recent updates.

8:00 p.m. — “Previously on ‘The Masked Singer’!” In episode 2, five characters took “The Masked Singer” stage to sing their hearts out in hopes of advancing to the next round. In the end, Diver was forced to unmask following his performance of “I Ain’t Worried” by OneRepublic. The deep sea explorer was revealed to be actor and “Vanderpump Rules” star Tom Sandoval. Who will unmask tonight?

8:02 p.m. — Jewel kicks off the festivities with her 2001 single “Standing Still” from the album “This Way.” Of course Jewel won Season 6 of “The Masked Singer” as Queen of Hearts, taking down Todrick Hall as Bull in the finale.

8:05 p.m. — First to compete tonight is Pickle, who says, “OMG I can’t believe I made it through ‘NFL Night.’ But while I may have this big smile plastered on my face, I’ve got a salty side too. So it feels fitting to be on here during ‘2000s Night,’ the decade when internet beef was born. Look, I’m outspoken and I’ve gotten into a few fights you may have heard about. I’ve butted heads with NBA players, real housewives, award-winning directors, movie stars, bloggers, even entire online publications. Having a public feud really is performance art that I’ve perfected. But, I’m always open for reconciliation. I’ve even rekindled friendships with some of my former adversaries. So my advice to anyone who wants to pickle a fight with me tonight — take a chill pill.” Visual clues included a police car, a punching bag, a baseball and “The Masked Singer” Panther (Montell Jordan).

8:10 p.m. — Pickle is singing “Beverly Hills” by Weezer. This really isn’t a strong vocal, but he’s always having fun and this is one of the great costumes — so maybe that can help carry him through. It’s clear this Pickle has a sense of humor, but I’m not sure if he’s a comedian or just fun. Jenny loves him. For an added clue to Pickle’s identity, Lance Bass brings out a collection of pickles with beautiful wigs and a sign that says “Friends.” Could this be someone who starred in the iconic sitcom? Pickle then says, “I’ve done so many things for so many years and people always associate me with my famous friends.” This leads the panelists to guess Pickle is Charlie Sheen (Nicole), Sean Penn (Ken) or Joel McHale (Nicole).

8:15 p.m. — Next on tonight’s roster is Gazelle, who says, “I love this costume. I have to tell you, the first time I saw it I started crying. Deer are really meaningful to me because they are a symbol of someone I loved and lost. It happened just a few weeks before my wedding. One of the most important people in the world to my husband and I passed away unexpectedly. We somehow carried on with the wedding, but it was all a blur, except during our vows when suddenly rain started pouring down on us. It was magical. We knew then that our loved one was there with us. When I put on the Gazelle mask I carry his adventurous spirit with me and I know he’s a part of my secret to success here.” Visual clues included a mouse and military dog tags.

8:20 p.m. — Gazelle is singing “Lucky” by Britney Spears. This song lacks the vocal range and emotion of her previous performances, but allows Gazelle to show off her dancing ability with some fun choreography. Bringing out an additional clue is Kate Flannery from “The Office.” It’s a DVD that says “Gazelle Love Story.” To that, Gazelle says, “The 2000s are a special time for me because it was when I had my film debut.” This leads the panel to guess Mandy Moore (Robin), Hilary Duff (Nicole) and Ashley Tisdale (Jenny).

8:25 p.m. — Up next his S’more, who says in his clue package, “Boy you guys keep wanting s’more of me, don’t you? I’m just so stoked to still be here on 2000s night. My decade, baby! Hanging out on the set of ‘TRL,’ my music videos playing on MTV and, most importantly, the birth of my child. Learning to be a dad while touring the world was intense. At a certain point I realized that I wanted my kid to have a constant, supportive father figure in their life. So I took a step back from performing so that I could stay in one place. Now being on stage again feels extra special because they get to see me back in my element. I’m so proud to be their dad, and I hope they’re proud of me tonight.” Visual clues included blue sunglasses, a “2005 Roasted Tour Bus” and hairspray.

8:30 p.m. — S’more is singing “Hey There Delilah” by Plain White T’s. He sounds different to me this week! He has a great voice and it’s been made clear from the clues he’s tackled both the pop charts and Broadway. I was thinking this was Justin Guarini in previous weeks, but now I’m not sure. I believe his first son was born in 2011. Nicole says this was her favorite performance of his so far. Lance returns with an extra clue of a map that says “S’more Bros 2000 Tour.” S’more says, “2000s were a busy time for me. I was busy touring with my bros.” This leads the panel to guess Jordan Knight (Nicole), James Marsden (Nicole), Rob Thomas (Ken) and Ashley Parker Angel (Jenny).

8:35 p.m. — Cow is the final singer of the night. In their clue package they say, “I am so over the moon after last week’s performance and I feel absolutely psyched to be here for ‘2000s Night’ because that’s the decade it all started for me. My friends and I decided to pack up a van and head for the Capitol Records building in Hollywood, determined to get a record deal. We pulled into the parking lot and started performing on top of the van, convinced we’d get signed. Instead security kicked us off the property. But we kept coming back every single day. While we didn’t make it then, today my picture hangs in the Capitol Records hall and the big wigs see me all the time. Now that the group final is in sight, I’m bringing that same determination because one thing’s for sure: This cow isn’t coming home anytime soon. Moo!” Visual clues included a judge’s gavel and a birthday cake with one candle.

8:40 p.m. — Cow is singing “Cry Me a River” by Justin Timberlake. They’ve got a smooth, soulful voice and Jenny can be heard saying, “This is obviously a huge star!” Nicole asks, “Is that Usher?” but his career started in the 90s, so it’s obviously not. Cow’s extra clue is a banner that says “Moooosical.” Cow says, “Well, the 2000s were really, really good to me. So much, in fact, that I got to star in a ‘moooosical.'” This leads the panel to guess Mario (Robin), Ne-Yo (Robin), Jason Derulo (Robin) and Taye Diggs (Nicole).

8:50 p.m. — The studio audience has voted for their favorite. Two will go through and the other two will go face-to-face in a smackdown. The two going head-to-head will be Pickle and S’More. That means Cow and Gazelle swiftly exit the stage to safety. Pickle and S’more each give their own rendition of “Sugar, We’re Goin Down” by Fall Out Boy. S’more is clearly the better singer, but I actually sort of prefer Pickle’s feisty nature and grit! That’s just me, but I’m sure S’more will take this.

8:57 p.m. — The audience has voted once more and the last singer taking their spot in the Group A finals is S’more! That means Pickle will be unmasking tonight. But before he does that, the panelists must submit their final guesses: Charlie Sheen (Nicole), Howard Stern (Ken), Conan O’Brien (Jenny) and Joel McHale (Robin). Are any of them right? Or will Pickle be the first singer this season to skunk the whole panel?

9:02 p.m. — The time has come and Pickle slowly pulls off his mask. The panel is wrong! Pickle is actor, comedian and podcaster Michael Rapaport! Nick calls him “a personal friend of mine” and adds, “I knew the whole time!”
