Following the performance, Cannon released Bull’s “Party Rating”, a wrapped gift with an emphasis on the “wrapped” aspect.

Hamster then came out with a packet of clues including a framed photo of a Basset Hound and a suitcase, with an emphasis on “friends.”
“As you probably guessed by now, I’m a bit of a party animal and you should have seen me in my twenties. I lived in a big city working with my best friends,” they said.
“The fun we had when we were younger was the most fun ever,” Hamster added. “There’s nothing quite like not being famous and the next day being famous. And that’s what happened to all of us, and the fact that we’re still friends all these years later is phenomenal. , they’re gonna have a lot of fun being here, and I’m gonna prove myself. “

Then Skunk, who began in his packet of clues, “Look, I’ve been to some of the most epic parties around. I mean the glitz, the glamor, some of the most iconic people in the world.”
As the clip showed a glimpse of a pufferfish and a food platter that included a box of family-sized cookies, Skunk continued, “I was the hostess with most of the women, but these days- Here I am limiting who I allow in my personal space. And as you get older you realize that there is nothing wrong with removing the wrong people from your life. “
Skunk then gave a moving performance of Gladys Knight & The Pips’ “Midnight Train to Georgia” and released a boombox playing Gospel music as a party gift.
“Some say lower for what, I say raise everything so that the whole Empire can hear you, ”Skunk said, hinting at Taraji P. Henson, Queen Latifah and Tamar Braxton.

Baby then prepared for the stage, teasing an RV bus and a baby book in their clue packet.
“I love a good house party, the best house party I have ever been to was a trip – it was a house party on a bus, across the country,” they said. . “I had to bring my whole family for the ride, I even got pictures of my kids having a bath in the sink.”

The long-awaited joker then took the stage and proved to be a hot pepper.
“I’m excited to compete as a wild card, especially as a Pepper. I want to spice things up. You know I’ve always had my own flavor and I’m constantly thinking about ways not to be bland.” Pepper teased. “This past year has been the craziest – something I did went viral overnight. It spread like fire. I didn’t expect it, but the coolest part was to see people take what I’ve made and add their own flavor to it. “
Their packet of clues included a tic-tac-toe board, leaving the judges to speculate that Pepper was of TikTok fame.
“Do you know what they say hit when the iron is hot? That’s why I’m here,” Pepper said. “You know, what is it, why don’t you go out and keep the flame alive and party as Pepper?” “
After a performance of Labrinth’s “Jealous” that left Scherzinger in tears, Pepper said their gift was a pair of roller skates because you don’t need a driver’s license to use them.
Thicke immediately guessed Olivia Rodrigo, while the others added Hailee Steinfeld, Lady Gaga, Pink, and Miley Cyrus to the mix.
