Host Nick Cannon opens this week's The Masked Singer by announcing that "in this crazy town, our famous citizens wear masks to hide their famous faces." Guys, is this a clue that Fox is about to announce a Masked Singer The world is similar to Universal's Harry Potter attractions? Because in that case, I am equally frightened and fascinated .
But before we get too deep into season passes and park jumping and what I plan to wear on my first visit to Flamingo's Casa de Clues, let's review this week's section. The show went back to its smackdown format, so the first matches were Flamingo vs. Leopard and Flower vs. Rottweiler.
FLAMINGO | "Ay Dios mio," complained the pink bird in its clue package, which also showed us photos of the Eiffel Tower and Taj Mahal. (Is it just me, or does Flamingo's clue seem a lot skimpier than her competitors?) She belted out "Lady Marmalade" by Patti LaBelle – a bubbly choice, given who I guess is under the flower mask – and was really, really good. In fact, Judge Robin Thicke called it "the absolute best season", and he was right. (My guess: The Real hosted Adrienne Bailon.)
LEOPARD | Leopard's coverage of Earth, Wind & Fire's "September" was strangely low energy, or maybe it just seemed that way compared to Flamingo's party starts? Anyway, at least his high notes sounded good. "When I was a teenager, I freed myself for the first time," said the beautiful kitten in her pre-performance video; later, on stage, he referred to having several "little ones" at home. (My guess: Pop singer.)
FLOWER | Listen, I don't even care that Flower sang about half a verse of Heart's "Alone" before freely styling the face of the entire choir, and that there hadn't been a sign saying, "Yes, I'm Miss Patti LaBelle "openly nods to her true identity. The woman is magical. (Although I will give props to Thicke for noticing that some of the background actors in Flower's video played pattycake, Like, Patti cake? Get it ?!) (My guess: C & # 39; Mon.)
ROTTWEILER | The big dog version of Bruno Mars' "Grenade" was super strong, which is not surprising at this point in the competition, right? For the record, his clues included: boxing, the word "platinum", yoga, September, and four prize pools. (My guess: American Idol alum Chris Daughtry.)
SMACKDOWN | Leopard jumped through Pussycat Dolls "Don & # 39; t Cha" (which pleased the judge / former doll Nicole Scherzinger). The flower did not seem to be verve when it was her turn to croon Survivor's "Eye of the Tiger", although guest host Joel McHale's screams of "Let's do it, purple cabbage!" Made me laugh out loud. Winner: Leopard!
UNMASKING | The flower was revealed to be Patti LaBelle, extraordinary songstress (although she will always be Dwayne Wayne's handsome cuckold mom to me).
Now it's your turn. What did you think of the section? Sound off in the comments!
