It was Thanksgiving Eve, but every day there is a costumed competition on Halloween The masked singer. and became Wednesday was definitely still in the Halloween spirit, with its (perhaps delayed by the World Series) episode of Fright Night – which ended with two very clever-it’s-scary images that were undone by the witching hour. masked But this extreme horror picture show took a turn for the worse, when one of the contestants, the Scarecrow – who became one of the last icons of horror cinema – practiced self-immolation by hiding himself.
Just another celebrity The masked singer History has done it before (although oblivious host Nick Cannon, who clearly has a lot on his mind these days, claimed it was the first series): when Season 4 Mickey “Gremlin” Rourke violently blows his head off and suddenly leaves. This week, Scarco voluntarily removed her pumpkin head and lost the competition – even though she had less fear than Mickey, and she actually had a much better chance than Mickey of making it to the next round. . In fact, judge Ken Jeong just declared her rendition of Steve Miller’s “Abracadabra” the most magical performance of the night.
“Wait, wait, wait, wait!” Scarecrow interrupted, just as Nick was about to announce the end of the first episode. “I have something to say! I love this show so much. I’m here to tell you how much I love you and what you’ve all done to entertain the world and my family. But I want to officially take a bow and raise the curtain.” , and let these two incredible rivals go on,” she gestured generously to her rivals, Blizzard and Sir Bug-a-Boo. “This competition is the real deal. … I have a really special reason to be here and I want them to enjoy the stage and all the accolades they deserve.
The stunned judges’ mouths opened so wide they looked like living, breathing rubber scream Masks But before this giant pumpkin self-immolates, the judges have one last chance to determine its identity. They focused on her horror movie signs, and a certain witchy sign, and guessed that it might be Hocus PocusBette Midler, of the The Wizard of EastwickSusan Sarandon, The WitchesAngelica Houston, Fatal attractionnear the glen, HalloweenJimmy Lee Curtis, OR screamNew Campbell, Courteney Cox, Drew Barrymore, or Parker Posey.
But if only they had zeroed in on the Scarecrow Clue package on Rainbow Roller Skates, it would have led them to the 1979 cinematic classic. Roller Boogie and to Golden Globe-winning actress Linda Blair. (Linda won the world for this Exorcistnot for Roller BoogieJust to be clear.) “Switching heads” was another obvious sign that the judges were somehow ignoring it.
The judges were so shocked when Linda opened her head, it looked like their own heads were spilling and spilling apple soup. “There’s a legend in the building!” Nick shouted. “My mind is beaten up! I’ve never been more amazed by this series than I am now,” said Jenny McCarthy-Wahlberg.
Linda’s performance was unexpectedly funny and funny, which is probably why the panel did not guess that it was the 63-year-old artist formerly known as Reagan McNeil. But Linda had clearly picked up some rock star swag from her former music boyfriends, among them Rick Springfield, Deep Purple’s Glenn Hughes, Neil Geraldo, Tommy Shaw of Styx and especially Rick James. It really is was The kind of girl you read about in new wave magazines! The power pop band Red Cross even wrote a song about it.
But Linda didn’t go away The masked singer To show off her pop chops or her rock credentials. Linda Blair, founder of the animal charity World Heart Foundation, was a woman on a mission to get the word out, and felt mission accomplished. “Let me say something [The Masked Singer does] For me and what you do for the world: you take us out of the most difficult time in history for one hour a week, “she began thanking the judges. “I hate animals and being dumped on the streets. I have a foundation. … I travel the world and do what I can to make it a better place. You all know nothing, your kindness and your love. And if you can heal me, as much pain as I am in trying to save those who don’t deserve what happened, we can do better. And I feel like you are my family.
“Thank you, Linda, for using this platform in the best possible way,” said Ken, who declared it his favorite expression. “we love you!”
So, that leaves last week’s reigning queen, Blizzard, and this week’s other new contestants, the Seuss-like, four-legged bug-a-boo. But even though Sir Bug-a-Boo’s adorable, “Devil in the Blue Dress” look-alike Jenny (who appears to be dressed as Berlin’s Terry Nunn Halloween costume) has her “beautiful tone “was afraid of. ” after he tackled a blizzard in Rockwell’s “Who’s Watching Me.” The masked singer Dreams are dashed, or broken. (I personally thought he did a good job in the fight, better with a raspy rap for the song.) And we found out—as Jenny guessed almost immediately—that it was Ray Parker Jr. .
Well, d Course It was Ray! This colorful crooner not only sang the “Ghostbusters” theme song and sounded like a Motown legend, but three of his highlights. green piecean An old-school landline phone with three question marks on itand even A true soul! I swear, the show’s producers weren’t even trying to be dirty when they threw together a bag of head-bug-a-boo clues this week; They might as well have attached a proton pack to Ray’s back while they were there. I don’t know why the other three judges even bothered to suggest that it might be Jordan Peele, Randy Jackson, Lil’ Reel Horry, or the Wayans brothers…or why Jenny changed her guess at the last minute. ghost beds Actor Ernie Hudson
Nick enthused, to which Ray joked, “And I thought I was going to be a permanent fixture. this show up! … But I want to say, when you all need someone else to come on this show and you need someone extra, who are you going to call?”
So, that meant Blizzard kept her crown for a second week, after her ice-cold solo performance of Ava Max’s “Sweet But Psycho.” So he will now go into the Season 8 semi-finals against the former reigning Queens. Harp and Lambs. It’s already abundantly clear that Harp is Amber Riley and Lambs is Wilson Phillips (of the The masked singer The manufacturers did not make it their Signs are also very difficult) but who is Blizzard?
I’m a little unsure about it, and the judges’ guesses were all over the place. Last week they thought Blizzard might be Anna Kendrick, Heather Graham, Kathryn Hahn, Eliza Schlesinger, Aubrey Plaza, Whitney Cummings, or Zooey Deschanel, and this week they’re throwing around random names like Olivia Rodrigo, Sabrina Carpenter, and various others. Real Housewives threw. But I’m sticking with the guess I made last week: I believe it’s comedian Nicky Glazer. It sounds like it.
But the signs (which, admittedly, were a bit complicated in this case) are also added. Blizzard said she had to be “cold-blooded” to survive in her male-dominated profession, and women have historically had a hard time on the comedy circuit. She said she shared the stage with Rob Lowe, and she absolutely killed it at Comedy Central’s Rob Lowe Roast. (She had a vision cooked He mentions “speed-dating,” which Nicki did on Instagram Live during the pandemic, and of course Nicki is the current host. Blind history. We saw a house and a welcome mat, a Nike reference Welcome home Nikki Glazer? The reality series, and hearing the phrase “pitch perfect,” is most likely a nod to her perfect TV special. And finally, we saw the “Masked Universe” comic book… and well, Nikki is a stand-up humor.
The masked singer Halloween will be left behind and get into the current spirit of the holiday on Thursday — yes, the 24th, thank you — with a special semifinal episode that will determine which two contestants will advance to the Season 8 grand finale. So, if you’re watching Bulls vs. Lions or Patriots vs. See Harp vs. Vikings vs. Lambs vs. Blizzard, Fox has you covered on Thanksgiving Day. See you again.
