It was later time for Group B contestants to hit the stage with Miss Cleocatra going up first. In her clue package, she said, "I'm thrilled to be here tonight to champion fierce girl groups. You know I had my gang of great women that shaped me. Starting with my own mother. She was a maid, so I didn't have to be. But the best gift I ever got from her was her work ethic. It made me the hardest hustler in Tinseltown. Now all the brightest stars look to me, including Michelle Obama and her mother." As for her visual clues, it included a snake, a domino with a 5 on it, and photos of Bette Midler and Whoopi Goldberg.

That night, Miss Cleocatra sang "Free Your Mind" by En Vogue. For an additional clue, Carnie Wilson came out on stage and sang a bit of "Stop! In the Name of Love" by The Supremes. Miss Cleocatra added, "Well, The Supremes, aren't just on my playlist! They're a part of my career." Rita guessed Roberta Flack, Robin named Loretta Davin, while Ken thought she could be Jenifer Lewis.

Beets were up next. "Yeah, we're still touring, hitting the town. We'd be so excited to make it to the Group B finale, and tonight is the night we're gonna make it happen," they said in their clue package. They included a mistletoe, a boarding pass for a flight, a restaurant menu and a bread castle in their visual clues.

For their performance, Beets opted to sing "I'm So Excited" by The Pointer Sisters. Raven-Symone later brought out an additional clue by singing a few notes from "Weak" by SWV. Beets said, "We made our audience weak in the knees on Broadway." Among the guesses were Brooks & Dunn, Tituss Burgess & Allan Cumming, and Zach Braff & Donald Faison.

As for Gumball, he said in his clue package, "It's exciting to perform on Girl Group Night because there's actually one girl who's been singing lead in my life for years - my wife. I still remember the night I met her. An angel from across the room. I knew right then and there I'd spend the rest of my life with her. And everything was perfect until she was diagnosed with a disease that will impact her later in life. … Tonight I'm singing one of her favorite songs, just for her." Visual clues included angel wings, a moon and a bowling ball that looks like a globe knocking down pins.

Gumball dedicated "Wide Open Spaces" by The Chicks to her wife. Carnie later sang a few lines of "Don't Cha" by The Pussycat Dolls as an additional clue. "Don't you wish you could have starred with Channing Tatum like me," Gumball said. Rita mentioned Aaron Taylor-Johnson for her guess, Jenny thought he was Derek Hough, and Ken guessed Taran Killam.

This season's final wildcard contestant, Seal, later took the stage. "I'm so excited to be on Girl Group Night, because I was in one of the most famous groups in the world. And now I'll get your seal of approval with a girl group anthem by some fabulous 'Masked Singer' alums," Seal revealed in his clue package. Meanwhile, a treasure chest, a science lab, a drivers license and a vampire were included in his visual clues.

After the voting process, host Nick Cannon revealed the two contestants who had to sing for the Royal Battle were Miss Cleocatra and Seal. They each put their own spin on "Waterfalls" by TLC, but eventually it was Miss Cleocatra who was eliminated in the episode. Before she got unmasked, the panelists submitted their final guesses. Rita still went with Roberta Flack, Robin and Jenny guessed Loretta Devine, while Ken insisted on Jenifer Lewis. Ken was right because Miss Cleocatra was revealed to be Jenifer Lewis.
