Watch Ken Jeong channel 'Little Drummer Boy' in his first Masked Singer performance
Welcome to the stage... Little Drummer Ken!
Dressed like a toy soldier, Jeong delivers his rendition of the Christmas classic "Little Drummer Boy," while giving extra emphasis to the "Pa-rum-pum-pum-pums." You can sing along, with help from the mini-Ken bouncing above the lyrics shown on screen.
Jeong's vocals are solid, and his fellow panelists Nicole Scherzinger, Robin Thicke, and Jenny McCarthy all seem to get a kick out of his rendition — even Mushroom and Crocodile are caught on camera enjoying the performance behind the scenes.
This Wednesday, the final three singers debut never-before-heard holiday songs with all-new animated clues, and the already unmasked celebrities join together to perform their favorite jingles. Tori Kelly (formerly the Seahorse) performs a song from her new holiday album, which she previously spoke to EW about.
"I got to record it all with the legendary Babyface," she said. "And we did it all remotely like on FaceTime and emails and stuff. I'm just so thankful that I get to even put out music and continue to create during such a crazy time. That's kind of my Christmas gift to everyone this year."
Jeong has flexed his vocal chops before, including in his other Fox series, I Can See Your Voice.
Next week will be the much-anticipated holiday-themed finale, when the finalists will duke it out for the Golden Mask Trophy and all three will be unmasked. Sun — a.k.a. Leann Rimes, according to EW's predictions — recently delivered the best performance in TMS history and is the current frontrunner, but don't count out the talented Mushroom or Croc just yet.
