The Masked Singer Thread - Season 4

SAVE ELIMINATION SPOILERS UNTIL 24 HOURS AFTER EPISODE AIRS

...but after that all bets are off each week.

Okay so my initial thoughts.

Group A

Sun: Christina Aguilera (I think she's holding back; the quick Mickey Mouse clue was a biggie for me; Frozen was a red herring; she did say "reflection," which is her song from Mulan)

Giraffe: AJ McClean (from Backstreet Boys, but not solid on this)

Popcorn: Tiffany aka New York

Dragon: DMX (possibly Busta Rhymes)

Snow Owls: the Amy Grant & Vince Gill guess by a judge was interesting. My initial thought was Tim Daly and Tyne Daly (because I leaned toward them being siblings)

...adding to/editing my original post as the show proceeds.



Other theories:

Sun: LeAnn Rimes is being floated a lot

Giraffe: Chet Hanks, Vanilla Ice are light theories, nothing solid y et

Popcorn: Darlene Love seems to be a forerunner theory. "I built a career around love." She made a miracle reference - has album Age of Miracles. She could be the old school diva for Group A.

Dragon: Busta & DMX were the main guesses

Snow Owls: A lot of people are thinking Clint Black & Lisa Hartman (there's a pearl in the package, their daughter is named Lily Pearl; Black put out two Christmas albums)

In coming weeks:

Group B

Crocodile

Whatchamacallit

Gremlin

Baby Alien

Serpent

Seahorse

Group C

Squiggly Monster

Broccoli

Jellyfish

Mushroom

Lips

This is going to be a fun season!

I enjoy the show, I think Snow Owls could be Trisha Yearwood/ Garth Brooks, maybe Donnie & Marie, there is no rule saying a former contestant can't do the show again. One complaint they have the judges spaced apart but the people in the audience are bunched together like cattle (yeah the celebrities health is more important). Looking forward to seeing baby Alien

The audience is an illusion. There is no audience. There are shots of an audience that were injected, and applause foley. The crew may have been clapping. But the rest is CGI and illusion. You'll notice there are no wide sweeping shots of the audience, and if there are, it's dark and hidden. It was very clever and until I saw the nightly Entertainment Tonight recap on YouTube, I thought it was an audience as well. But they noted it wasn't. They quoted the Exec Prod of the show about it.


Remember, at the beginning, they showed how it's all new and different (reminded me of the MTV VMA set up). Some of the other elements that were incorporated were things like the picture frames, etc. I have to say, it was very well done.

I believe all of those are wrong. Taylor has a huge soulful voice, as does Darlene Love. Tina - nah. She's kinda done with the U.S. and her voice is very recognizeable. Same for MJB (whose voice I cannot stand - fite me). Darlene Love sorta seems to be the best guess thus far. I think the Proud Merry-Go-Round is sort of red herring.

But who knows. Tina has added a few pounds to her frame after her cancer ordeal (her face got puffy), and she's certainly never super thin (toned yes). But in her 70s, I just don't believe her frame is that small. All that said, it's definitely a diva from the old school.

I need to go listen again.

Tina is in her 80s and living peacefully in Switzerland. She’ll never come back to America.

Yeah, I told folks this. It's just not her body.

Part of me wonders about Taylor Dayne or Anastasia. The clues really lean toward Tiffany Pollard aka New York (she built a career on "love," as in Flava of Love and I Love New York.) She also made flavor references, "Salty, sweet."

The hoops on the gold fish could be a reference to one of her co-stars who went by Hoopz.

Traveling with royalty - could be a Flava Flav reference. Maybe not.

Anastacia would be much better suited for the UK version, she never had a hit in America. I remember VH1 did play “One Day in Your Life” for a couple weeks but it didn’t make the billboard 100.

You know New York but not Bow Wow?

And if Tiff can sing, we'll find out on this season, if it's her.

I have zero idea who anyone is in Group B. People were guessing the Gremlin correctly, but I thought George Clinton at first, because he doesn't really sing.

The voices of Group B are really good, though. I was impressed with everyone. Except the Gremlin.

Yeah me too. My only real guess is Antonio Sabato Jr as Crocodile, the Italian flag and I know Antonio likes 70's/80's rock. Baby Alien maybe Matt Leblanc because of Lost in Space

I only know of him because of Corinne Bailey Rae, she sings background on one of his tracks. I purchased the track online. I remember the album cover. Then I noticed him performing on some award show recently.

It's Tyler, the Creator, not Ty. He's a rapper who drops an incredible amount of gay slurs in his music. He's one of the most homophobic (despite his claims to the opposite) and misogynistic rappers ever.

Ironically, Jaden Smith said a couple of years ago that he had been in a relationship w/ Tyler.

I think he's trash, and I've zero interest in him being on this TV show. But if he is, he is.

As far as the clues, a lot of people have bees on their albums. Missy Elliott was covered in them in a video. Also, a costume wouldn't mimic what they do in real life, because it would be a tell. So that isn't an option most likely.
