We’re less than a month away from living Goddess Patti LaBelle gracing the stage of the Crown Theater (get your tickets here…cough, cough), but is that the R&B legend we heard on TV last night?

The latest episode of Fox’s “The Masked Singer” aired last night, and if you’re unfamiliar with the show, contestants come out and sing songs under giant costumes and with disguised voices. A “judging” panel takes guesses at who that masked singer is, and clues are given to who the singer might be. Celebrities from every walk of entertainment compete on the show, with rapper T-Pain emerging as the Season 1 champion.

On Wednesday night though, the Flower character sure jumped out to us! Watch the small clips below. Sounds a WHOLE lot like Patti doesn’t it?

And the clue package has some hints that make us think this is pretty clearly Queen Patti! Whoever it is, we’ll have to wait to find out, as the Flower has advanced to the next round!
