Season: 3 (2020)
Week: 1 (February 2, 2020)
Stage name: Robot
Song: “Are You Gonna Go My Way” by Lenny Kravitz

Jenny Mccarthy made a guess that Robot could be Johnny Knoxville while Jamie Foxx thought Robot could be American TV personality Steve-O.
Lil Wayne said that his experience on The Masked Singer is awesome and is something he didn’t expect. Unlike other contenders before who said they felt something different when they were behind the mask, Wayne said he didn’t get that feeling. But he said it’s unlike any experience he had musically. He said not telling anybody what he was doing and keeping it a secret, “that was dope”. He also said he will miss being the Robot for his kids sake because they’re gonna probably wish he was a real robot.
Prior to being unmasked, a video of clues about Robot was shown.
