I have a guilty pleasure. I've become obsessed with Fox's reality singing competition, The Masked Singer. I got into it mid-season last year when I caught a clue package for The Rabbit and knew instantly it was Joey Fatone. The concept is crazy! Celebrities wear huge costume heads (not just plain old masks) and very elaborate costumes while singing and the judges try to guess who is performing.
Clues to who is Behind the Mask
Prior to each performance they air a clue package that is chock full of Easter eggs! The celebrity's voice is altered as they talk about why they are on the show or where they came from but sometimes they also try to throw in a few misleading clues to keep you guessing!
Season 2 Celebrities Unmasked
We are four episodes in this season and four celebrities have already been unmasked. I don't want to have any spoilers here incase you decide to watch it, which I highly recommend you do! But I will say I only could tell one voice for certain and the other three were a major surprise (one was a surprise because I had no idea who the person was).
Guessing the Voice Behind the Masked Singer
There are 12 celebrities still yet to be unmasked! I'm breaking down the clues and my guesses and sharing what seems to be popular Twitter guesses.
Who I think it is: Mel B.
Who Twitter thinks it is: Michelle Williams, Mel B.
Clues: Talks of metamorphosis, old home is London and appeared to speak with a southern accent.
Apparently Michelle Williams was in Chicago on the West End so there's the London connection.
The Black Widow
Who I think it is: I need more clues..
Who Twitter thinks it is: Raven Simone
Clues: Hides in plain sight, deleted scenes, director's cut, the clue package shows crown and peach symbols.
The Lady Bug
Who I think it is: Kelly Osborne
Who Twitter thinks it is: Kelly Osborne
Clues:"Lifetime of family drama", born into the limelight, clue package contained an image of what looked like ham (remember Sharon threw ham over the fence in an infamous episode of The Osbornes as well as a gavel and police car (Kelly has publicly had some trouble with the law).
Who I *originally* thought it was: One of the Lachey brothers
Who Twitter thinks it is: Daughtry
Clues:Talked about playing under the "Friday Night Lights", was seen wearing a Fantasy Football Super Bowl style ring, says he was bitten by a Rottweiler as a kid and rose to fame through competition.
After seeing people tweeting out Daughtry, the clue package totally makes sense! He was on American Idol so he rose to fame through competition.
Who I think it is: Dana Carvey
Who Twitter thinks it is: Dana Carvey, Paul Shaffer
Clues: At the end of his clue package he said "party on dudes" (hello Waynes World) and he also mentioned he was tired of playing second fiddle. The number 4261 was seen a gravestone in the clue package which is apparently the exact number of episodes David Letterman aired so, do what you want with all of this.
Who I think it is: Literally no idea, a basketball player?
Who Twitter thinks it is: Victor Oladipo
Clues: Says he is 7 feet tall, "Don't call me Chewbacca, though we do celebrate together", and had a cupcake with the number 4 on it.
Who I think it is: Seal
Who Twitter thinks it is: Seal, Billy Porter, Ru Paul
Clues: THE VOICE. Seal has such a unique tone and rasp to his voice, as soon as he started singing I was like SEAL! Clues from the package include being a "heavy hitter", people only caring about the "celebrity aspect", he doesn't care what people say about what he's wearing so he's "stripping away the headline". Sounded like he spoke in a British accent.
I think people are jumping to Billy Porter based off of the what he's wearing clue but how about this.. he and Heidi used to dress up very elaborately for Halloween each year they were together. Just saying!!
Who I think it is: Adrienne Bailon
Who Twitter thinks it is: Adrienne Balion
Clues: Another case of distinct voice. I grew up with the Cheetah Girls okay, I know what Adrienne sounds like. Mentions an online presence, being controlled.
The Christmas Tree
Who I think it is: I know it isn't Mariah Carey or Martha Stewart but it's all I got!
Who Twitter thinks it is: Ana Gasteyer
Clues: Like a Christmas tree comes out during a certain time of year, likes getting dolled up and we see the number 30.
Who I think it is: Patti Labelle
Who Twitter thinks it is: Patti Labelle
Clues: She hit high notes only Patti can hit. The end.
Who I think it is: NO IDEA
Who Twitter thinks it is: Tanya Harding, Sheri Shepard
Clues: Seen leading a march/protest, talks about changing her hair often, is on ice and wants to prove their career isn't over. Writes a hit list including a classroom bully and comedy club owner.
Who I think it is: Wayne Brady
Who Twitter thinks it is: Wayne Brady, Michael B. Jordan, Ray Fisher
Clues: In the package is reading a bedtime story to a child, he mentioned Doogie and Doubtfire; Doogie referencing Neil Patrick Harris whom Wayne Brady acted along side in a handful of episodes of How I Met Your Mother, and Doubtfire being the late Robin Williams who famously guest starred on Brady's show, Who's Line is it Anyway?. Also talked about two words colliding and being a superhero.
So there we have it. 12 masks left. A bunch of conflicting guesses and not a lot to go off of. Do you watch The Masked Singer? Share your guesses!
