The Llama on The Masked Singer. 

Latina power duo Shakira and Jennifer Lopez definitely dominated the conversation on Sunday with their Super Bowl halftime show, but Lil Wayne also shook things up that same night when he removed his Robot head during the post-game season 3 premiere of Fox's The Masked Singer.

Now there are five remaining Masked Singer contestants in Group A, the first division of 18 total contestants for this season of the reality singing competition series. Regular viewers and the show's panelists seem to have zeroed in on who the unrevealed stars are with some pretty convincing Twitter theories. But they won't know for sure until the upcoming episodes of The Masked Singer, which settles into its normal time slot on Wednesday at 8 p.m. ET.

But before then, let's see what the Internet has to say about the true identities of White Tiger, Miss Monster, Turtle, Llama and Kangaroo. (Possible spoilers ahead, maybe!)

White Tiger

The White Tiger is gigantic, athletic, dedicated to his fans and, according to Twitter, most likely former New England Patriots tight end Rob "Gronk" Gronkowski. One fan is so sure they're "willing to bet my future life savings" on it, but the clues seem to be there. Another fan noted that during the White Tiger's clues video, one of the highlighted hints was a "four score and seven years ago" poster featuring George Washington, Abraham Lincoln and Benjamin Franklin. No, that doesn't mean the contestant ran for president, but four score and seven years adds up to 87 years, which is the same exact number on Gronk's Patriots jersey.

Miss Monster

Miss Monster caught everyone's attention for two reasons during her rousing performance of Bonnie Raitt's "Something to Talk About" during Sunday night's premiere: The Monster, who was previously uncovered as season 1 winner T-Pain and acts as Miss Monster's love interest, joined her onstage, and Nicole Scherzinger picked up some Patti LaBelle-adjacent vibes. The 75-year-old singer was on season 2 of The Masked Singer last fall when she disguised herself as the Flower.

"This is the vibe I get from Patti, when Patti LaBelle was on this show," Scherzinger told fellow panelist Jenny McCarthy following Miss Monster's official debut. An overwhelming amount of Twitter replies are pointing fingers to fellow R&B legend Chaka Khan, including newfound fan Questlove, who got sucked into the season 3 premiere post-Super Bowl and shared a few theories on Twitter. But panelist Ken Jeong clearly has Dolly Parton in mind.

Turtle

The Internet is a little slow to figure out who the Turtle really is, as fans have been picking out different teen heartthrobs: Zac Efron, Nick Carter, Jordan Knight and Jesse McCartney. But here's what's most convincing about the McCartney theory, according to the way one fan pieced it together after watching his clues video:  "He literally LOVES to grill!!!! The surf board cause he was on Summerland (omg what a SHOW) and his voice... I compared his voice on the show to his live Resolution Tour audio and y'all..... it's him. And you can't change my mind!!!!!!"

If it wasn't for any of McCartney's 2000s nostalgic catalog that fans are turning back to for proof, then it's his English voice-over work as Roxas on Kingdom Hearts, an international video game, that's been driving this point home. 

Questlove, meanwhile, has his sights set on R&B singer Jon B., whose Grammy-nominated debut single "Someone to Love" featured Babyface, and Quest picked up some Babyface vibes.

Llama

The Llama has also been starting quite the debate, with Jack Black and Howard Stern neck-and-neck. Partridge Family star and radio personality Danny Bonaduce took to Twitter on Monday (Feb. 3) to say he can't "possibly confirm or deny whether or not I am the llama on The Masked Singer," but being a radio host is a major clue for who the Llama is, which makes a perfect case for Stern or Bonaduce.

Althought Scherzinger never said Black's name aloud, she questioned the "black jack" joker card in his clues video. After watching his performance of Ricky Martin's "She Bangs," a fan tweeted how it resembled the actor-comedian's performance on Schoolhouse Rock.

Kangaroo 

People have been hopping from guess to guess on who the Kangaroo is, but many have been landing on Jordyn Woods as the woman behind the mask because her story and the character's story seem to match up. "I recently lost a person who held my family's heart together. Then by my own admission, I found myself in the spotlight for all of the wrong reasons," the Kangaroo narrated while squaring up against paparazzi with boxing gloves, which could possibly refer to Woods' cheating scandal with Khloe Kardashian's ex-boyfriend Tristan Thompson that broke up her longstanding friendship with Kylie Jenner.

But one clue doesn't quite seem to fit in Woods' triumphant "bounce back" story: the Outback sign. Fans, as well as panelist Robin Thicke, think it could be Aussie rapper Iggy Azalea just for her nationality. "And she's fancy," Thicke teased of her No. 1 Billboard Hot 100 single. (Questlove is on the same page too.)

However, McCarthy doesn't think the hidden star is from Australia at all. In fact, she has a different Jordyn/Jordin in mind. "I think she is from 'down under,' from going through something very difficult, and the heartache that you've gone through I try to connect that to a singer, because obviously your voice is epic," she reasoned following the Kangaroo's tear-jerking performance of Robyn's "Dancing on My Own. "So I thought maybe Jordin Sparks."
