An Australian household name has just been unveiled on Masked Singer – and it left one judge reeling. WARNING: Spoilers.
Two more celebrities are revealed in Sunday night’s episode of The Masked Singer – and the first was a one-night-only guest who left one of the show’s judges very red faced.
Yep, that was radio stalwart Kyle Sandilands inside a Paw Patrol costume singing a surprisingly tuneful rendition of Train’s Drops of Jupiter – and somehow, his on-air partner of more than 20 years didn’t guess it was him from her position on the judging panel.
“This is the worst you can get, I’m never living this down… this is so embarrassing,” panellist Jackie O said after he was revealed.
The embarrassment should be shared, though – as Sandilands pointed out, he knew every single member of the judging panel, and none of them picked him.
But Jackie O couldn’t quite believe she’d been fooled so easily.
“When you were singing, there was a flash of you in my mind, but then I was like, ‘No.’ You never even let on once. We work together every morning, I‘ve been telling you about Masked Singer every day. All the while, you knew you were gonna be on it!”
Stay tuned, because there’s still one more celeb to be unveiled in tonight’s episode – and by the process of elimination, it must be the ‘international star’ hyped up in the ads this week. Could it be Atlantis, who is quite obviously US soul singer Macy Gray?
Last week, singer Mahalia Barnes, rugby league legend Loti Tukiri and Australian singer-songwriter Ben Lee were unmasked as contestants. Before that, MasterChef judge George Calombaris was the second celeb to be revealed.
Before that, British film star Vinnie Jones providing a genuine surprise to viewers when he was the first celeb revealed this season.
Jones was all smiles on screen – but gave a less enthusiastic appraisal of the show during an interview with Kyle and Jackie O the next day, telling them he signed up for the “big cheque” and that he found the top-secret filming procedures annoying.
“You know what, as soon as the cheque clears, then the big stick comes out and they start whacking you on the arse with it. They started bossing me around,” he said of his behind-the-scenes experience.
“I wanted to give a few of them a little slap, but every time I wanted to do that, they put a cape over my head and I couldn’t see anyone.”
