For the first time in the history of The Masked Singer, a contestant unmasked himself even before the audience and the judges can vote, automatically eliminating himself from the competition.
During the second week of The Masked Singer Season 4 (2020), the Gremlin Masked Singer told Nick Cannon he wants to take the mask off “right now” because it’s too hot. Nick Cannon said it’s not that part of the show yet and shouted for help from the Men in Black.
But Gremlin seemed like he couldn’t take it anymore. He took the mask off and threw it off the stage.
So who is the Gremlin Masked Singer? He’s Oscar nominated actor and screenwriter Mickey Rourke.
Upon his unmasking, some clues in Gremlin’s package were explained. The iron is a clue to Mickey’s role as Ivan Yanko in “Iron Man 2.” The “loves to cook” mention is a hint to his pen name “Eddie Cook”. The boxing shark is a clue to Mickey’s boxing career and the movie “Rumble Fish” in which he starred in.
Prior to his self-elimination, Gremlin performed “Stand By Me” by Ben E. King.
Because of Gremlin’s action, the Masked Singers Baby Alien, Crocodile, Seahorse, Serpent and Whatchamacallit stayed SAFE and advanced to the next round of the competition.

The host and all of the panelists returned for their fourth season. For the first time in the show, the panelists engaged in a competition for the Golden Ear. During the first three episodes, after each celebrity contestant’s initial performance along with an initial clue package, each judge/ panelist wrote their first impressions-based guess at the identity of the celebrity. Those guesses will be revealed after each celebrity was unmasked, with panelists scoring a point for each celebrity they got correct from their initial first impression. The panelist with the most correct answers will be declared the winner of the Golden Ear.
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the location was changed from Television City to Red Studios Hollywood. Safety protocols implemented for the show included tapings to have a virtual audience, and that the judging panel will be 8 feet apart from each other. Many of the clues packaged also used animation by Bento Box Entertainment as opposed to live-action filming.
Fox Alternative Entertainment president Rob Wade said that the show used “various quarantining and various camera tricks” to preserve the visible presence of a studio audience. A “virtual audience” was incorporated into voting.
