The Masked SingerThe Season 8 premiere boldly went where the Fox reality show hadn’t gone before: It moved to have one Actors from the episode go to the next round. The remaining three saw theirs Masked Dreams die at the end of the hour – a big change from previous iterations where most players were in it for multiple episodes over the course of the season.
But did you like that new, different? Masked Singer? We’d like to hear your opinion now. But first a short summary.
The four participants of the premiere were:
HARP | As the powerful singer who performed Pink’s “Perfect,” she was the early favorite to stay on for a week. Her cues included: fan of luxury cars; “I’m telling you, life has a weird way of getting you where you need to be”; references to auditioning for “the greatest show on earth” when she was a teenager but not being selected; a scarecrow hat; Winning awards for acting, singing and comedy – the last one “I have to share with my best friends”.
HEDGEHOG | A Brit of (I guess) a certain age who called proudly announced that he had been “in naked”. play girl“At some point in his career he performed The Beatles’ ‘Love Me Do’ with a marching band, which distracted from his lack of vocal ability. His clues included: a snake; “This is not my first big premiere”; he was part of the Olympic Games; “constant optimist”; His fans include Bradley Cooper, Jimmy Fallon, Tina Fey and Elon Musk; he has won a Tony and a Grammy.
HUMMING-BIRD | This guy seems to be an athlete just from the amount of football references in his clue pack. So it was pleasantly surprising to hear him play Gavin Degraw’s “I Don’t Want to Be” and hit all the notes well. Clues included, “This hummingbird knows a thing or two about the competition. It’s in my DNA”; a patriotic team; A speaker; a ring; a cowboy hat; and “My special awards that are out of this world. They’re not exactly gold, they’re silver, but that doesn’t mean second place.”
KNIGHT | From the moment this man started speaking—singing—Fred Astaire’s “Puttin’ on the Ritz,” I knew exactly who he was. Clues included: “Space Cadet”; a bust of William Shakespeare, the solar system; references to work on stage, television, films and with George Lucas; reference to throwing two chairs on national television; a masking tape; and a police badge.
