Another clue showed Tulip clicking a pair of red shoes together three times which viewers were quick to note also pointed to the mystery dancer being Mackenzie since she starred as Dorothy in a Broadway production of The Wizard of Oz. 

Mackenzie is a dancer and singer who first shot to fame after appearing on the reality dance series Dance Moms along with her older sister, Maddie Ziegler. The 16-year-old now boasts an incredible 20million followers on TikTok and has appeared in the teen drama Total Eclipse - both of which have been alluded to in clues.

However judges Ken Jeong, Paula Abdul, Brian Austin Green, and Ashley Tisdale have not yet guessed the Dance Moms star as the masked performer.  Audiences will have to wait and see if their theories on Tulip are correct in Wednesday's semi-final when she goes up against Cotton Candy, Sloth and Zebra for a place in the final.

So far, the FOX show has seen many other famous faces unveiled including Law and Order: SVU star Ice-T, singer Jordin Sparks, science commentator Bill Nye and Jersey Shore star Vinny Guadagnino.
