The final six costumed celebrities graced the Masked Singer stage for the first time on Wednesday night and viewers got to meet Astronaut, Bear, Night Angel, Rhino, Swan and T-Rex. Host Nick Cannon revealed that between the group, they have one Guinness World Record, two New York Times bestsellers and 36 gold records. The dino made the show’s most energetic entrance, bopping around the stage as Kesha’s “Dinosaur” blared, and Astronaut brought judge Nicole Scherzinger to tears with his version of Lauren Daigle’s “You Say.”
After each performance and clue package, panelists Jenny McCarthy, Ken Jeong, Scherzinger and Robin Thicke made their initial guesses and host Cannon asked the contestants about their costume choices.
Unfortunately for Bear, her first performance was also her last because the studio audience and judges’ vote named her rendition of “Baby Got Back” the night’s least liked performance. That meant Bear had to relinquish its furry pink costume. Cannon helped Bear wiggle out of the mask, revealing Sarah Palin underneath.
To have her show up like this on the same night that we learn Tom Hanks has the Coronavirus is like a cosmic slap in the face.
Funny how the audience hated her even before they learned who she was.
She has that effect on people.
