And just like this: ‘Sex and the City’ star, ’70s disco singer is the latest masked singer to reveal

After being preempted last week by a weather-delayed baseball game, and being pushed back by an hour this week due to the MLB playoffs, masked singer It’s finally back on the air this Wednesday with a new three-contestant arc, and the series’ entire eight-season arc looked to have led to this belated moment: Andrew Lloyd Webber Knight! When you think about it, AWB’s Phantom of the Opera was the original masked singer, and of course, the cats Stars have been singing in silly furry costumes for decades. clearly, masked singer The guest judge was the role that Webber was born to play.

This week, disappointingly, no one dressed up as a cat or a ghost. But we have a mermaid, atom, and a robot girl (once again this series proves so completely Out of character ideas), all singing classics from illustrious songwriters Weber as they compete to join the “ruling queen” of the former arc, Harp (aka Amber Riley) in the Season 8 semi-finals.

By the end of the hour-long episode, two of these three contestants had already been eliminated, with only a robo-girl advancing. (she is now the new A reigning queen, so she’ll be competing against a couple of new celebrities next week.) Both The Maize and Mermaid put out solid performances that in previous seasons were at least enough to qualify them for the next round. So, before I summarize what the premature reveals, allow me to complain (repeatedly!) about how the new look of Season 8 sucks up all the fun from what used to be America’s favorite pastime.

masked singer It has implemented a major change of format this season – one in which Fox has been bragging about a large-scale cast of 22 mysterious costumed players – likely to attract celebrities such as William Shatner, Eric Idle, or timidn Casts who may not want to commit to more than one episode. Each week of Season 8 features nearly instantaneous events DoubleElimination, thereby denying viewers the opportunity to play at home and delve into each contestant’s clues over the course of several weeks. As a result, none of this season’s episodes have been particularly suspenseful, and as I noted in the previous paragraph, many singers who may have had a chance to qualify for the semi-finals under various circumstances, returned home after just one performance. Many viewers on social media have complained about this format change, so hopefully, Fox’s powers-that-be will be attentive and will correct the course in Season 9, before ratings for this huge show one day plummet.

Well, the rant is over. And that brings us to two of this week’s centrifuges, the Corn and the Mermaid. When the former contestant appeared on stage for the first time, judge Nicole Scherzinger exclaimed, “It’s corn!” And it instantly reminded me of the corn-loving YouTube kid. I was expecting the corn to perform tacky Jesus Christ is a star‘Heaven in their mind’, but it was in reality A – corn. It started with a deep, sonorous, androgynous voice that reminded me of Grace Slick performing “White Rabbit,” then let it really explode. Webber was so impressed that he told the corn, “Whatever you are, I have some advice for you: turn professional!”

Webber also said of corn, “He’s good, but he’s young,” which totally impressed the man inside a suit that host Nick Cannon described as a “big-ass corn cob”: it turns out he’s a 62-year-old comedian and Sex and the City Actor Mario Cantone. (Jenny McCarthy Wahlberg predicted correctly, from the “city” and “move it away” guides – another complaint I have about this fast new format is that the exhibitors are barely equal attempt To confuse the audience anymore, and fill all the individual and implemented rejection guide packages with clear references.) “You know, the best thing I said was that I was young,” Mario joked.

The mermaid was the other revelation of the night, while “Any Dream Would Do” from JOSEPH AND THE AMAZING TECHNICOLOR DREAM COAT Not the perfect song to showcase her group across the scale, Webber was still a fan, guessing Mermaid was “one of the greatest singers of all time,” Gloria Estefan.

The suspicious singer turned Gloria … Gaynor.

Robin Thicke guessed correctly because of the all-too-easy clues that Gloria specifically was “stunned” by a freak accident (in 1978 Gaynor fell on stage screen and sustained a serious back injury), “surviving,” and “turning her pain into an anthem.” (A guide about the Library of Congress was another key piece of information: In 2016, the library selected Jenor’s “I Will Survive” for keeping in the National Recording Registry.) “Every season he’s guessed you, and we were wrong. We were wrong,” said Robin, before Gloria blessed the audience with a performance. An unconvincing farewell to survive.”

Like I said, an extraordinary disco singer like Gloria Gaynor would definitely have survived her first week if she did another season. But this result left the robot girl as the last mask standing this week, after she completely killed Bad Cinderella, and in a showdown against the mermaid, said, “Don’t cry for me, Argentina.”

The guides for The Robo Girl were much stricter, because the producers clearly planned to stick with it. I’m not quite sure what to point to being in the shadow of Missy Elliott, Pharrell Williams, And the David Blaine was all about it, but “Steppin’ up” was also a clue, so it could be dancer/singer/actress Alison Stoner, known for her moves in Missy, Pharrell, and… step up Dance privilege. Allison has also released 12 singles, among which is the song “Pretty Girls”.

However, the visual evidence of surfing and references to “magical fans” and “little little lights” make me believe this could be the Teen Choice Awards winner/host, actress and country singer Lucy Hale, who along with her breakout role in pretty little liars He starred in the short-lived 2007 year Bionic woman Reboot (the ultimate robotic girl!) and featured in Cinderella story once on a song. Sophia Carson, star Cinderella Story: If the shoe fits And the Little Liars: Perfectionistsis also a strong possibility.

Coming back next Wednesday, when (barring any other rain-delayed sporting events), Robo Girl will be back to defend her title against new contestants — and two contestants will be home very soon. See you later.
