If caught on Wednesday masked singer Season 7 premiere to watch the chaos that allegedly followed the former New York mayor Rudy Giuliani It is said that he has been revealed as a contestant… Better luck later this season?
A well-known advisor to former President Donald Trump was nowhere to be seen during the episode, though reports that his revelations in the season’s first episode caused some of the show’s judges to walk out of site in protest. (Fox declined to comment on the original report and had no comment when TVLine taped Wednesday.)
But that doesn’t mean the season opener was drama-free. One of the contestants literally lost his head! Read on for the rundown, and to find out who’s been revealed.
Thingamapop | This season’s schtick singers fall into three categories: The Good (Prince, Firefly, McTerrier, Armadillo, and Ringmaster), Bad (Hydra, Queen Cobra, Ram, Jack in the Box, and Cyclops), Cuddly (Space Bunny and Lemur), Baby Mammoth , Miss Teddy and Thingamabob). Thingamabob looks to me like a stuffed animal version of Weird things“Demogorgon, but I suppose someone might think he was likable? Bon Jovi sang “Wanted Dead or Alive” well, but the song is a karaoke song for a reason: Can’t most people handle it easily? Clues included: Hotel California , a tackle box and fishing net, a couple of quarters and an eagle.(My guess: someone played for the Philadelphia Eagles?)
meter | I’m not sure if McTerrier’s decision to end Loverboy’s “Working for the Weekend” with an extended howl in person was an inspiring choice or just a good cover for a missed note – either way, it worked. The kilt-wearing dog seemed a bit powerless for his costume… Then he became extremely powerless when he nearly fell off the stage and lost his giant furry head as he struggled to right himself. (Don’t worry, a member of the production team grabbed it and helped him put it on while the judges turned their backs.) Evidence included: candle, terry towel, star axe, cake, gold log and ‘edge’. (My guess: someone who isn’t actually Scottish, despite that accent.)
firefly | On the second and most dramatic of that evening, Firefly took to the stage to perform Chaka Khan’s “Ain’t Nobody” but took only a few notes before starting to cough and had to stop singing. As she bowed in half, the judges called a medic and Ken “I’m a Doctor” Jeong ran onto the stage. Nick Cannon later tells us that a member of the show’s medical staff is looking at Firefly, and she eventually came out to reprise her performance. it was good! Guides included: Tyler Perry, Apollo Theatre, Live Comedy, Statue of Liberty and a microphone. (My guess: It’s not her, so why do I keep thinking Abbott ElementaryCheryl Lee Ralph?)
cyclops | The one-eyed miracle sang “My Sacrifice” by Creed, and it was…okay? Clues included: a compass pointing southeast, a turtle wearing a cowboy hat, 4 ounces, and a comic book. (My guess: …no proof!)
RAM | The Ram is a little aggressive, but his take on Cheap Trick’s “I Want You to Want Me” was spot on and fun. Clues included: Hamlet x Macbeth, horns, landing, quarterback/back quarter and horse/colt. (My guess: a soccer player, maybe from the Indianapolis Colts or the Denver Broncos?)
disintegration | McTerrier was the first victim in Season 7. When he was revealed, he was revealed to be Ace of Cakes/Food Network star Duff Goldman.
