Warning: This text accommodates spoilers for The Masked Singer season 3, episode 10.
We obtained rick-rolled. Snoop Dogg brought about a stir. A lion danced on a stripper pole. Panelist Jenny McCarthy confirmed off her bushy armpits. And that’s solely half of what occurred. And it is even funnier in the event you do not forget that this episode was doubtless taped months in the past.
Tonight, Kitty, Evening Angel, and Astronaut continued to be frontrunners, simply as EW predicted in Tremendous 9 breakdown, whereas three singers landed within the backside. And one in every of them, White Tiger, obtained the boot within the present’s two-hour particular.
We began off the episode with particular visitor Snoop Dogg and everybody was excited till host Nick Cannon revealed he tricked us as a result of the rapper was really impersonator “Eric from San Bernadino.”
The tomfoolery did not cease there, however thankfully, two-thirds of Group A’s performances had been no joke. Turtle fantastically sang Steve Winwood’s “Larger Love,” Kangaroo gave us her signature ballad with the Dixie Chicks’ “Not Able to Make Good,” and White Tiger grooved to Proper Stated Fred’s “I am Too Attractive.” To go together with the horny theme of the tune, a dancer in a lion costume obtained up on a stripper pole, as a result of that is completely sane and never bizarre in any respect. I used to be rendered speechless, as was Nicole Scherzinger.
The massive cat even admitted “I by no means sung in entrance of a crowd” forward of his efficiency, to which everybody at residence in all probability responded with, “WE KNOW.”
Then, Cannon introduced out a cutout of Ken Jeong for instance simply how gargantuan White Tiger is (and the way Jeong actually wants to face up straighter). Once more, my ideas exit to the PA who was in control of maintaining these cardboard cutouts protected.
The viewers voted, and so they selected White Tiger as the primary to hitch the underside three of the night time.
Subsequent up was Group B, giving us a variety of songs. First up was Kitty with “It is All Coming Again to Me Now” by Celine Dion, adopted by Banana rocking out to “Candy House Alabama” by Lynyrd Skynyrd, and Frog confirmed off all of his abilities with “Leap” by Kris Kross.
They every shined in their very own means; panelist Robin Thicke stated the feline’s efficiency was “nice singing, interval,” and I agree. Banana obtained everybody to lift their palms, whereas Frog’s rapping prowess made White Tiger look “wiggity wiggity wiggity wack” by comparability.
However one individual needed to enter the underside three, and sadly, Banana wasn’t slippery sufficient to get away.
The present saved the very best for final, as Group C knocked it out of the park. Evening Angel’s model of Andra Day’s “Rise Up” obtained all of the panelists to their toes, whereas Rhino’s “What a Man Gotta Do” by the Jonas Brothers was enjoyable and twangy. Lastly, Astronaut stunned everybody together with his wonderful rendition of Rick Astley’s “By no means Gonna Give You Up.” It was so good that the English singer even tweeted his reward of Astronaut.
Then, McCarthy confirmed off her lush armpit hair, freaking her fellow panelists out, earlier than revealing it was pretend. She adopted that up by tying with herself for the worst guess of the week, guessing that Derek Jeter was underneath Rhino’s costume. Earlier within the episode, McCarthy predicted that Chris Evans a.ok.a. Captain America may very well be Turtle’s movie star alter-ego.
Whereas Rhino did nice on stage, he was outshined by his Group C cohorts and was despatched to the underside, becoming a member of Banana and White Tiger. These singers’ destiny was within the panelists’ palms, and so they determined to ship the massive cat packing. R.I.P. to his wonderful costume, which was designed and handcrafted by The Masked Singer’s Marina Toybina and her group.
When the masks got here off, White Tiger was revealed to be … former New England Patriots star and three-time Tremendous Bowl champion Rob Gronkowski! EW known as it weeks in the past, having picked up on all of the clues associated to New England, Gronkowski’s repute for being a celebration boy, his affinity for WWE, and extra.
After his elimination, Gronk admitted to EW he wasn’t fairly ready for what he was getting himself into. “I’ve at all times needed to discover ways to sing. I’ve really at all times needed to discover ways to dance, too. As soon as I obtained the chance, I actually did not know precisely what I used to be moving into,” he stated. “You fake like nobody even knew you existed beneath the costume, like that scene within the film Large Daddy the place the child places on sun shades pretends nobody can see him. I sort of felt like that. It grew me a pair.”
Now the Tremendous 9 are all the way down to eight members, so keep in mind to tune in subsequent week as we get nearer and nearer to handing out the golden masks. I simply hope subsequent episode shall be as weird and enjoyable as tonight’s.
