Week Clue
6 "I've always dreamt of flying high because I believe that if you want something enough not even gravity can hold you back. While it's a bit crazy to leave my home planet, I've been hungering for a chance to explore new territories. This voyage maybe bumpy, and I may be far from home, but the idea of endless possibilities gets my heart throbbing. Midway to impact! Oh, brother! Kabloom! I'm OK. Not a pitch perfect landing, but I'm here. Now which way to the stage?"
7 "I have a whole new mission now that I'm connecting with the audience on stage. I'm loving this fresh start as the circle of life keeps spinning. It feels like I'm getting a foothold in this new world. When I was young, I was a bright star. But then I overreached and got burned. I found myself isolated and so very lonely. But in the wild, I kept wandering for what felt like 500 days using sign language until I found my own voice. Now here I am on an unexpected journey. I'm going to share my story, sing a song from a dear friend, and prove I do belong."
8 "When I started this journey, I never knew how at-home I would feel in this space suit. It makes me kind of forget I'm still only human. But here's my bro-pilot who knows that better than anyone."

(Astro's Bro-Pilot): "Astro is a great captain. He knows how to lead a crew. But sometimes he can be a total space cadet. One time, in front of thousands of people, he took a huge nose dive and fell flat on his face. Anyone else would have said bye, bye, bye, called it quits. But not Astro. He got right back up. No stumble can stop him from reaching for the Moon, and the same goes for that golden mask."

9 "My 'Masked Singer' journey couldn't have come at a better time in my life. For years, I've been searching for a chance to blast away lables that have been imposed on me. You see, on my old planet, something happened that changed the course of my career. I was forced to start over. But negativity made it difficult to launch again. But here, in this new world, I have an incredible support system around me. I'm free to break boundaries and explore new territories, no tether attached. I am not a competitive guy. But boy, do I want to plant my flag at that finale. And now, let's blow the whistle on a clue that means the world to me. All right, time to rock it!"
10 Astronaut: "In a lot of ways, this face-off was inevitable because Turtle and I are almost like mirror images of each other in this competition."

Turtle: "The panel have been making similar, sometimes the same guesses for who Astro and I under these masks."

Astronaut: "We've kept the ladies swooning with our heartbreaking ballads and emotional anthems of love."

Turtle: "And now we get to see which one of us can stand out in this heartthrob throwdown. The song I'm doing tonight is all about devastating heartbreak. And I've had my fair share. And if I can channel my past pain into this song, that should be enough to send Astronaut on an away mission."

Astronaut: "In real life, I'm a shy guy. And despite the fact that I'm in a top secret space suit on this show, I feel like I'm showing more of my heart than I ever have. And that's how I'm going to give this turtle a shellacking."

Both: "May the best man win."

12 "Last time, I was in the bottom two. And I almost went… It was a rude awakening. While I'm counting my lucky stars, I'm still afloat in this space race. I know I need to adapt faster to this new world. Back on my home planet, I was very comfortable for a very long time. But then I started to feel like I was frozen, like I'd stopped growing. So I decided to light my candle and seek out new worlds. So you just watch, as I work harder to become more human. Tonight, I'm rewriting the story of my life on this stage."
