The Masked Singer

Recommended Posts

I think there's a Braxton on here.  As soon as she started singing, I thought it was Toni...with the super low voice.

 

Also, totally didn't know any WIllis could sing.  That's why I thought the Lion was NOT a Willis.  If so, it all fits!

I think so too. When "Hailey" popped up on the newspaper Lion was holding, one of the male judges said "Hailey Idaho?" There is probably no reason to know it is a town in Idaho unless you know the Willis family lived there. I mean, it doesn't even have 10,000 residents! I did think Lion may be another Willis daughter, and if Scout sings that's a good guess. Aren't there Empire clues though?

Hailey, Idaho is either where the pretty well-known (& often celebrity magnet) ski resort Sun Valley is located, or it’s the closest town to it. So if you follow the entertainment world, or you’re into skiing, you might be familiar with it.

Bruce Willis released a couple of solo albums in the late 1980’s (during the Moonlighting era of his career & while he was still a really hot commodity in entertainment). I think he also contributed songs to the soundtracks of various movies he starred or otherwise participated in (like doing voices for animated characters).

Judging by this Youtube video Donny is definitely a showman. 

 

I've seen his and Marie's Vegas show. Treated myself and did the meet-n-greet afterward. They're both very kind and warm. But BOYOHBOY... is he a lot shorter than I thought! I felt like a giant next to him. :-). They were all called the "One-Take-Osmonds", so I'm sure that showmanship was drilled into them at a very early age.

Ahem... I may or may not have his version of "Youngblood" and "Respect Yourself" (with the Pointer Sisters) on an audiocassette that I cannot play because I no longer have my Walkman.

ok detail folks. I had guessed Terry Bradshaw for the Deer because it looked like the insert into the end of his gas mask helmet was wrapped with a blue cloth measuring tape (like a person on NutriSystem would use to measure their waists). Anybody else think so??

You must be quite tall yourself.  I am 5'9" like Donny, and I don't consider myself anything close to short.   I've also seen Donny and Marie's shows in Vegas several times, and they put on an amazing show.  They are very giving of their time during the meet and greets, too, and are very easy to talk to. My daughter and I have also attended two of Donny's fan get-togethers in Vegas (which I don't think he does anymore) and had an amazing time.  Donny was our tour guide to Hoover Dam, and he sat on our laps on the bus trip back to Vegas from the dam.  He is very down-to-earth, funny, and appreciative of his fans.  His entire family (wife and children, as well as Marie) participated in those fan weekends.  My daughter and I feel like we've seen Donny do the dance move that Peacock did after he came down the steps from the lift during "Counting Stars."  Peacock also covers nearly the entire stage when he performs, something that Donny does as well when he sings in Vegas.

I have no idea how that is different. I may not know how to pronounce singer...

I say “sing-ur”, second syllable rhymes with “her”.  He’s saying “sing-gurr”, same sounds but he adds a hard G to the second syllable.  He says “sing” and then says the G again with a hard G.  Does anyone else pronounce the word his way,  I’ve never heard it that way before.

There is no doubt in my mind that the Peacock is Donny Osmond. I’ve loved him for more than 45 years and I’d know that voice anywhere. The first clue package made me think it could be Donny but when he sang, all guessing was over for me.

And as far as body doubles in the costumes go, again watching Donny, I don’t think so. The Peacock performances are pure Donny Osmond moves.

Donny is the only definite I have, I’m in line with some of the other guesses here, like Rumer Willis, Ricki Lake, and Gladys Knight. It’s fun to watch and guess! Now if they could just get rid of Jenny McCarthy...

Wasn't it a great experience? I mentioned that I'm from Hawaii, Marie started talking about when her dad was there way back when. They really made everyone feel welcome. I only wish we had more time to chat, but then again, so did everyone else! I guess what I meant was that I thought he'd be taller than 5'9". Marie is sooooo tiny. I felt like a house next to her. LOL! I just looooove me some Osmond. Any and all of them.

Looks like some Donny Osmond fans on this board.  I am not, though if thats him in the Peacock suit I sure will be.  

Another story: my sister has a good friend who worked in the entertainment field for years  - he met many a celeb.  He was on a game show where Donny was his celeb partner.  He told my sister that Donny was one of the nicest people he had ever met, celeb or non celeb.  And Donny seems to have a sense of humor about himself.  Back in the early 80s he was a guest in a music video where he was auditioning for a job as a lead singer in a band.  I'm not sure any more but I think it was a Jeff Beck video.  It made me smile back then.

He's also absolutely hysterical in Weird Al's video White & Nerdy.

Ok, Im becoming obsessed with this show (yeah, I need a life).  Todays NY Daily News had an article taken from Variety about the designer of the "disguises" worn on the show.  An interesting note is that they did some gender-bending with the disguises.  Just because an outfit looks female or male doesnt mean a person of that sex is in it.  Hmmm, is that sexy Alien really a "she"?

I am completely hooked on this show. I basically had no idea who anybody was but I pretty much agree with the internet. I was sure about Tori Spelling until this week’s clues. I also agree that everybody will be guessed in another week or two.

Rumor has appeared and sung on Empire where the lead characters are the Lyons (which fits several clues).

I just caught some of the repeat of the last episode, with Joel McHale. Y'all have been explaining why it's Rumor (or Scout) Willis, and sure enough, Joel sees the lion's intro package, with Hailey prominently displayed, and immediately guesses "Hailey, Idaho?" 

I guess he didn't get the judges' memo "pretend you have no idea who it could be".

However, I think what's-his-name tried to salvage the faux pas by quicky replying "Haley's comet?"

I suppose if anything, the Raven could be a gender bender costume.  It looks like something a man would wear.  Ravens aren’t something that is generally thought of as particularly feminine, unlike, say, a unicorn.  The person is stocky with thick legs and Ken actually thought it was a man.  However, you would think that ends the moment she starts singing.  

The Alien clearly sounds like a woman.  I’m guessing she loses this week so we can confirm if it’s LaToya or a Braxton.  I see that Tamar Braxton is on Celebrity Big Brother so maybe she did this one as well?   Although the “control” clue still has me saying LaToya.

Caught up to the latest episode, and I think I have The Monster pegged. 

His latest clue about having your "Head In The Game" happens to be the name of one of the bigger songs in High School Musical.

It's Corbin Bleu.

The problem with this show is that if the celebrity is famous for singing (as opposed to being an athlete or actor), we know their voice. The Bee is Gladys Knight, there is no question about that. I mean, she is a legend and her voice is iconic, recognizable and unique. Surely, the judges are not that clueless. It drives me crazy for them to sit there and pretend they have no idea who it is. Just like with Donny Osmond. The fact that they haven’t even mentioned him as a possibility is ridiculous and shows how useless the judging segments are. As professional musicians (especially being over 40), Robin Thicke and Nicole Scherzinger should be ashamed if they don’t recognize Gladys Knight’s voice  I actually don’t think they’re really that clueless, so that makes the dumb bimbo act all the more annoying  

The Monster and Lion can really sing. Again, if they were famous for singing, we would recognize their voices. If The Monster is T-Pain, that makes sense because most of the world knows his singing through auto-tune; most haven’t heard him sing like this. Lion is Rumor Willis. Here’s a video of her singing (it’s the last few minutes). It’s the same voice.  

The Rabbit is not JC. His voice is very distinctive and IMO, he’s the best boyband singer ever. The Rabbit is definitely someone whose voice we don’t know very well, so someone who didn’t have solos. 

The other one I’m sure of is Unicorn-Tori Spelling.  You have to listen to the inflection and cadence of their speaking voice in the interviews. That little giggle is totally Tori Spelling. The same with Donny-the speaking style very much sounds like him. The only thing about Tori that gave me doubts was she was in a Christmas TV movie a few years ago and she sounded really great! I think I recall an interview at the time and she said it was really her singing but a lot of auto tune. However, I am sure The Unicorn is auto-tuned too (the notes are all on key, the voice tone is just horrible) and she sounds totally different from the song I linked above. I’ve come to the conclusion she was just lip syncing in the movie.

I do think the show is enjoyable, but damn the judging panel is just about ruining it for me. “Lady Gaga?” “Justin Bieber”? It’s just ridiculous. Guessing Cris Angel for Donny Osmond...it’s so annoying.

The voices are altered.

The singing voices aren’t altered, which was my point. Actually, I do think a lot of them are auto-tuned to keep on-key, but not altered in a way that we won’t recognize them. The speaking voices are definitely altered to be unrecognizable, but you can hear inflections, cadence, accents, etc. At first I though the Lion could possibly be Kelly Rowland, but she speaks with a Texas accent, and the Lion has no accent while speaking.

I agree that I think the judges must have some idea of who it is.  Especially when Gladys/Bee was singing, Robin said "I know that voice".  And there were two clips of Nicole where it looked like she had a glimmer of recognition or was trying to figure it out.  With the Deer I don't think any of them said Terry Bradshaw the first week and then all of a sudden when it came time to make the final guess so many of them got him.

For the Alien I don't think anyone said LaToya or a Braxton and I bet this week it will be 50/50 just before she is revealed.

Well, something that has been mentioned upthread is what is the age of the intended audience and are they familiar with all the singers?  Donny Osmond and I are the same age (61).  I remember when he started out with a higher pitched voice.  I was done listening to AM radio top 40 by the time I was 14, and other than seeing him on TV in the mid to late 70s, I wasn't a fan.  I haven't heard him sing since maybe the early 80s, and I'm somebody who at least has a clue of who he is.  My 38 and 40 year old DIL have no clue who he is or what he sounds like. And neither one of them knows what Gladys Knight sounds like either (and GK is a person who was well known when I was a little kid).   On the other end of the spectrum, somebody up thread guessed the Rabbit as Corbin Bleu and all I can say is who the hell is Corbin Bleu - as I've never even heard of the person let alone hear him sing.                                                                                     Back in the day when there were only 3 networks and lots of tv variety shows and everybody in the family watched the same shows, people of different generations would have somewhat of a clue who a singer was.  I knew who Bing Crosby and Frank Sinatra were and my parents knew who the Rolling Stones, and Janis Joplin were.  Today, unless you're talking about big stars like Katy Perry or Lady Gaga, you don't really have that generational interplay with new music.   Maybe part of the fun of this show is that people of different ages can watch it and have fun with the guessing  - it probably helps if you watch alot of Entertainment Tonight types of shows or read about what famous Hollywood star's daughter has decided to launch a new career fronting a band.   "shrugs" - All I know is that I am Team Peacock and if he is who we think he is, maybe it will put him back on the map of popular singers.

N’sync was founded in Orange County. The way that orange is written could be a reference to the Mickey Mouse Club which would suggest Justin (no way) or J.C. 

ETA: JC was also a mentor on the recent reboot of the Mickey Mouse Club.

I still think they are also altered when they sing.  I've listened to Donny Osmond and Joey Fatone for years and couldnt tell the singing voice was theirs. 

I don't know about altered, but I wouldn't be surprised if the singers themselves alter their voices a tad.  When the Peacock gets to the lower notes, it's usually much lower than Donny Osmond typically sings. I didn't recognize Donny at first because of that.  But on the higher notes, and when he holds notes or ends phrases, it definitely sounds like Donny to me.

Has anyone thought that perhaps the singers prerecorded their  songs and they have been doctored to make them sound a certain way?  With the masks, we would never know if they are lip synching.

I just googled JC Chavez' height and Joey Fatone's height.  They're both 5'11" as is the rabbit.  That didn't help at all. 

As a side note, I found that if I close my eyes and just listen to the songs, it's easier to tell who it is.  I have no idea why.  But when I did that with Donny Osmond, it really stood out that it was him.

For most of them, yes, we wouldn’t be able to tell.  But some of them have masks that don’t fully cover their lower face and you can definitely see the mouth moving.  I guess it could still be lip synched even though we see mouths moving but I’d be disappointed.

Here’s Donny singing in Mulan, I think this is a good example of his singing style on the show, kind of theatrical and pop at the same time. 

I’ve also wondered if they are singing live, because I could hear auto tune (especially on the non-singers). However auto tune can be used live, and I’m pretty sure I hear some of the real performers like Donny catching their breath sometimes.

Sure, different generations are going to have different pop culture references, but I guess I’ve never understood this idea of people being totally clueless to music/film/tv if it was before or after their time. I’m 38. Donny and Marie were big before I was born. I only know of Donny’s work peripherally. I may not have followed his career, but I know who he is. I may not have remembered exactly what his singing sounded like, but a quick listen of his Mulan song confirms it’s him for me.  Gladys Knight was before my time, but I mean really, do people really not know “Midnight Train To Georgia”? I admit, I’m a music lover so it may be more obvious to me than others. 

I just don’t buy the judges are that dumb. I could kind of buy that maybe they’re not positive if it’s Donny and Gladys, but to not even mention them as an option is a joke. 

I also think maybe they gave away too many clues too early. Donny’s clues-singing at five years old, your mom had posters of me, Vegas. I mean, who else could it be?? Especially after seeing him perform. I think this could have possibly been more fun and not as obvious if they had not given so many giveaway clues.

I agree. The fact that the obvious names haven’t come up makes me want to eliminate anyone the judges have named. I wonder if the judges were told not to name the obvious possibilities or if those suggestions are being edited out.

To be clear, I totally think the Peacock is Donny and the Rabbit it Joey.   I didnt even need to hear Donny sing, the clues were all there. And kind of easy ! lol But, as I mentioned before, they are doing something a little different to the voices. JMO

But some of you mentioned interesting things in your above post that they might have done. Auto tune even if the singers didnt need it or

I just listened to the Peacock doing Counting Stars. I had previously  just been listening the Greatest Show over a few times.  Wow,,,on Counting Stars you can certainly tell its Donny if you know his voice. But, in his case, I think he is changing it a bit. As you mentioned,,,he  hits some very low notes that are unusual for him and he adds a bit of a different accent. But it's Donny !!!

So, maybe the actual singers are asked to change it up a bit.

My guesses:

Peacock - Donny Osmond

Monster - T-Pain. (Look up him singing on YouTube. Dude can sing, and sounds just like this!)

Rabbit - JC Chasez (NSync). He released an album called "Schizophrenic" and wore a straitjacket. Tons of references to the band, AND not fat enough to be Joey Fatone. (LOL!) Joey also just did an interview saying he wasn't the Rabbit.

Raven - Ricki Lake. Her ex-husband committed suicide recently. All other clues point to her.

Unicorn - Tori Spelling

Lion - Rumer Willis

Bee - Gladys Knight (nickname is "Empress of Soul")

Poodle - Margaret Cho

Alien - LaToya Jackson (?); not too sure of that, though.

Can't remember who else was there. Oh, but I did get Tommy Chong right away. I must have been having an "intelligent" night.

**Notice I'm not touching anyone that could possibly be an athlete, because I have no clue about those guys.

Yeah, but he didn't host a talk show, or have the other Ricki Lake references.

I also think it's Ricki Lake but Ross did host a Big Brother "talk" show.

Can't remember who else was there. Oh, but I did get Tommy Chong right away. I must have been having an "intelligent" night.

**Notice I'm not touching anyone that could possibly be an athlete, because I have no clue about those guys.

Yeah, but he didn't host a talk show, or have the other Ricki Lake references.

I'm down with all of these guesses!  I called Ricki Lake and Gladys Knight the first time I saw the the clue package and heard them sing.  I think Gladys was even holding back on her voice so she wouldn't be a dead giveaway.

When I first saw the Peacock, I thought it was Corey Feldman.  But after last week, I think it's Donny.

I have been a Donny fan since I was 10. The clues are killing me cause they are straight out of Osmondland,  but that first week we heard "him" sing, no way is that Donny. He has a certain tone to his voice which the Peacock doesn't. I read above that they may alter their voice a bit. I'm so confused.  I also think that the Rabbit clues may be a little misleading. If you close  your eyes, and if you know his voice, I swear that's Joe McIntyre.

I'm starting to plan for (based on ratings) what will happen next year.  Who's your dream cast?  I would divide it into "famous for singing", "not famous for singing", and "some of both."  Time and budget are no object here.

 

Famous for singing:  Kelly Clarkson, just because she jump-started American Idol and has a lot of range of song choices.

Weird Al--same range of vocals. 

Not famous for singing:  Michelle Obama, just because she might actually do it.

Wil Wheaton, because he might slip out a "good night, nerds" and it would be funny if the judges don't get it.

Some of both:

Marisa Benoit:  Because other than the occasional music scene in Supergirl or the Flash, she doesn't get to sing much.

Amber Benson:  great in singing on Buffy the Vampire Slayer, and also narrated "Lock In" (as did Wil Wheaton). 

Shatner.  Because, Shatner.

Patrick Stewart, for the Kirk vs. Picard and because he'd do it well, and because it'd be fun for him to be The Knight.
