We are well underway with the 2nd season of The Masked Singer in the UK. Although the viewers’ minds change every week, it remains one of the nations favourite reality TV shows.
In the last show we saw Bush Baby leave. As the mask came off viewers were stunned at the reveal of actor John Thomson, known for his roles in Cold Feet and Coronation Street.
With nods to teaching and presenting, a strong suggestion amongst viewers is that this could be Lenny Henry. Each celebrity sang a song that referenced a clue, and Blob sang ‘Hotel Room’ originally by Pitbull. Maybe this supports the theory, as Lenny Henry often hosts the adverts for Premier Inn.
For weeks the judges have constantly changed their minds with Sausage, but they may have finally cracked it. There is now speculation that this could be Stacey Solomon. If you focus hard enough, Sausage can sometimes have a nervous giggle whilst speaking in the VTs… do you think this could be the echoing chuckle we remember from her X Factor audition?
Although in the last show Viking suggested he’s ‘never gonna give it up’, we think that clue would be way too obvious to be Rick Astley. Viking sang a stripped back version of ‘Take on Me’ by Aha. If you’re a fan of the band, you’d know that in recent years they performed with MTV plugged to recreate the masterpiece in a new acoustic setting. The two sound very similar, therefore we think this could be Morten Harket.
In the last show Badger sang Kelly Clarksons’ ‘Because of You’. This really didn’t help with any logical guesses, therefore making Badger one of the most frustrating acts to guess for its’ viewers. A popular name to pop up though is Ne-Yo, who had a song with the same title.
With such a soulful voice, Harlequin remains a favourite amongst fans. They sang ‘Fast Car’ made famous my Tracy Chapman. With the unique tone to their voice, some watchers believe this could be Macy Gray or Tracy Chapman herself.
Robin kept things chirpy this week with an upbeat rendition of ‘Rockin’ Robin’. Viewers are seeing more dance routines from Robin each week, making fans believe this could be Aston Merrygold from JLS. It sounds like it could be. What are your thoughts?
With the Pride stripes down their tummy, could this be Michelle Visage from Rupauls Drag(on) Race? Watchers have picked up on the American twang in their voice. Others believe it may be RuPaul himself! See who is next to be unmasked tonight (30th of January) on ITV at 7pm to see who is next to be unmasked! Catch up with the latest episode on ITV Hub.
With seven acts left, we continue to wrack our brains with who’s who. Either way, The Masked Singer definitely gets the country talking!
