21:00. – "Previously, on" The Masked Singer "!" In the seventh episode last week, the United States was forced to say goodbye to Alien, who unmasked to reveal nothing but The Toya Jackson. "Thank you very much for supporting me [and] support the Alien, "La Toya told the public after its dramatic elimination. With only five costumed celebrities still in the competition, the situation is about to become serious as two of them return home tonight. Let's start with this thing!
9:05 p.m. – We're getting into the show with the full show, Peacock! During the index, we see more allusions to magic, which, in my opinion, is just a distraction to a hobby or residency in Las Vegas. Last week, he was not happy about Robin's return and he hates "letting his little soldiers fall in love". He prides himself on being the most complete interpreter of his flock and we all know that Donny is the most famous of the Osmonds (sorry Mary!). He mentions being an idol and singing "It It to Be You", which sends the panel to "American Idol" as Clay Aiken or maybe former judge Harry Connick, Jr.
9:10 p.m. – Singing "Let's go" by Calvin Harris with Ne-Yo, Peacock shows his point of view on a modern and fast dance number. Peacock brings his energy tonight, hopping up and down and prostrating himself to the ladies of the audience. What's showman! The crowd loves his performance and Robin has called it the best of the series. Jenny said of all the performers tonight, she is certain that Peacock will go to the end. He reveals to the panel: "I have dedicated my life to the show. This mask transforms me into another character. It's funny because at home, my partner looks at me and I walk like that in the house (prancing like a bird) and my partner says to me: "Drop it! You are not a peacock at home! "He also stated that he had used" Fuzzy Lines "as a source of inspiration for one of his albums. Robin is shocked and thinks instantly Bizarre Al Yankovic. Nicole is certain to know the peacock and confirms that they are friends. She says it's Neil Patrick Harris. Jenny always says Donny Osmond. What we do know is that Peacock gave an incredible performance! Will he get to the final?
9:20 p.m. – It's time to find out more about this adorable monster. He continues to refer to "games" and we see a board game with a football. People think it might be an athlete, but I think it's another diversion. He says he was vilified and persecuted, but he is tired of "pretending to be a front". His disappearance of his identity has earned him the return that he is seeking for a decade. Sean Penn or Russel Crowe are thrown by the panel, which are hilarious suppositions.
9:25 p.m. – Song "Stay with me" by Sam SmithMonster is ready to prove he is one of the most formidable singers in the competition. You could hear a pin falling throughout this performance and the audience is completely immersed in the simplicity of this song. Nicole is literally in tears and Jenny is about to melt. Simmer now. Nicole called it her favorite performance we saw in the series. Ken was strangling while watching Nicole being choked. Ken actually thought it was Kenan all the time, but Kenan is now on the panel, so he's confused. Robin called it a performance worthy of Grammy. The monster reveals that deep inside him "a father, a husband, a son, a brother and more than anything else, I am a person". Now everyone is choking! Ken is convinced that Monster has a past as an actor or comedian and not just an award-winning voice at the Grammy Awards. For this reason, he guesses Jamie Foxx. Jenny guesses Calvin Harris, that the panel closes quickly. Robin wonders if it could be Darius Rucker. Kenan considered CeeLo Green when he spoke, but not necessarily when he was singing. Difficult call for the panel!
21:30. – Let's see some useful clues about the true identity of this sensual lion! Whenever she puts on the mask, she transforms herself in an unexpected way. For the first time, she is judged only as a singer. It is a lion who wants to be heard, not the child of his parents or the empire in which he was born. It is still expected to play the role, but it is multidimensional.
9:35 p.m. – Sing "Do not worry" is absolutely right "by Stevie Wonder, Lion widens his call with a nice little step back! I love jazzy voices, she has a fantastic sound! It resizes the notes as if they were nothing! Kenan asks, "Is this Kelly Rowland? "And I'm amazed that I know a lot more about singers than this group. I can tell you that this is NOT the voice of Kelly Rowland. His approach to singing is rather in the sense of Christina Aguileraalthough I do not think it's really her. After further listening, Kenan and Nicole agree that it is not Kelly either. Lion came to BLOOD tonight and Jenny thinks she's a big star. The lion says deep down, "I am a lawyer, not a victim, even though I have been bullied for a long time. I am a girl, a sister and I have moments of insecurity. Singing with a mask changes everything you thought you knew. You just have to believe in yourself. "Jenny guesses somebody from Destiny's Child. Robin guess Michelle Williams. Fashionable and Wilson Phillips are mentioned, but Nicole thinks she's just an actress who's just a very good singer, like Hailee Steinfeld.
9:40 p.m. – It's time to find out more about Rabbit, who has sung songs in as many genres as possible to dispel the scent of the panel and prove it's a versatile performer. He also came to win. Whenever he is under pressure, he puts the family in his luggage and heads for the mountain "step by step". Jenny then wonders if he is a member of New Kids on the Block. He likes to fish with his father and mentions the Chicken of the Sea, which evokes Nick Lachey.
9:45 p.m. – Keep the old school with "My Girl" from TemptationsRabbit looks fantastic, but it's certainly not Nick Lachey. What we know for sure, is that this creature can explode. It also has a fantastic performance quality. It was a cute performance, but not as electric as some of his others. Basically, Rabbit reveals: "I am very optimistic. When I think of something, it is always 110%. Believe it or not, I've already done another job in a suit, somewhere else. I'm used to being there, but I never sing. Did the panel then determine who was behind the mask? Jenny begins to wonder if it's her own husband, Donnie Wahlberg. Kenan guesses Nick Lachey, Nicole guesses Joey Fatoneand Ken guess Kevin Richardson.
9:50 p.m. – Look for clues about this beautiful bee. She says that part of the panel is convinced that she is the queen of glitches (Gladys Knightbut what if she gave contradictory messages all this time? Nobody makes a shoemaker like Bee (a clue Patti LaBelle), and she became very competitive as an insect. She wants to go to the end, so she passes a powerful song from her good friend, Aretha Franklin.
9:55 p.m. – Singing "Natural Woman" by Aretha Franklin, Bee offers serious lessons of soul song that have the panel in hand. Kenan does not even have a question, Gladys Knight they watch. Whoever they are, they know they are in the presence of a legend right now. Kenan says Gladys Knight is 1000% and asks who in their minds could not recognize him? Ken thinks it's Anita Bakerbut Bee reveals that "Behind this mask is difficult because I am cut off from you. I need to see you, to touch you and to feel if I play or walk in the street. "
9:57 p.m. – It's time to reveal who are the two masked singers who will be unmasked! The first unmasked singer tonight is Lion. Wow! It's shocking. For their last guess, Jenny says Kelly Rowland of the child of fate, says Nicole Hailee Steinfeld, Says Ken Dawn Robinson In Vogue, Kenan boards the Kelly Rowland train and Robin is keen on Michelle Williams from Destiny's Child. The lioness finally turns out to be …Rumer Willis! None of the panelists had even guessed this one.
9:59 p.m. – Rabbit is in fourth place tonight. For their latest assumptions, Kenan says Nick Lachey, Devine Ken Kevin Richardson of Backstreet Boys, Robin and Nicole think this is Joey Fatone * NSync and Jenny say it's probably her husband Donnie Wahlberg from New Kids on the Block. When Rabbit is finally unmasked, we learn that it's Joey Fatone! In fact, I'm impressed by the fact that it's Joey because he's a better singer than I thought before. Robin and Nicole were right! Next week, decide whether Bee, Monster or Peacock are crowned champions of The Masked Singer.
