Some fans immediately pointed out that Kevin McHale made his name in Glee - a singing show, Megan McKenna has a singing career, and Ricki Lake was in Hairspray - a musical!

However, as the celebs arrived at Simon's LA mansion for the audition process, fans were left questioning exactly who they all were...
