The Masked Singer fans have a new theory about who Panda is within seconds of tonight’s show starting.
Opening tonight’s show (January 29) with her rendition of Blame It On The Boogie by the Jackson 5, Panda impressed the panel and the audience with a strong vocal performance.
Judges including Rita Ora, Davina McCall, and guest judge Olly Alexander voiced their guesses which included Kylie Jenner and Cheryl Cole, but fans have a new theory about who is behind the fluffy mask.

Dozens of viewers flocked to social media to say that they believe Panda is none other than Britain’s Got Talent Judge and former Misteeq singer Alesha Dixon.
One said: “So convinced that #Panda’s voice is Alesha Dixon now that I’m going to have to mentally prepare myself for them to be someone completely different #MaskedSingerUK #TheMaskedSinger”
A second added: “I’ve watched Masked Singer for 30 seconds and I know for a fact that Panda is Alesha Dixon.”
A third chimed in: “Panda sounds to me like Alesha Dixon, not the best singer but her voice tone sounds exactly like her #MaskedSingerUK.”
A fourth guessed: “Don’t know how tonight’s clue fit but I’m still convinced panda is Alesha Dixon.”
A fifth wrote: “#Panda #MaskedSingerUK my original guess was Alesha Dixon. Sounded like her tonight but I keep changing my mind!!”

Tonight’s episode will see two celebrities eliminated from the competition, with their true identities being revealed at the end of the show.
