Warning: This text incorporates spoilers for The Masked Singer season 3, episode 10.
We got rick-rolled. Snoop Dogg caused a scurry. A lion danced on a stripper pole. Panelist Jenny McCarthy confirmed off her bushy armpits. And that’s simplest half of what came about. And it be even funnier in the occasion you do now not forget that this episode become doubtless taped months ago.
Tonight, Kitty, Night time Angel, and Astronaut endured to be frontrunners, apt as EW predicted in Large Nine breakdown, while three singers landed in the bottom. And surely one of them, White Tiger, got the boot in the reveal’s two-hour special.
We started off the episode with special visitor Snoop Dogg and each person become infected till host Gash Cannon revealed he tricked us for the rationale that rapper become in actuality impersonator “Eric from San Bernadino.”
The tomfoolery did now not conclude there, nonetheless luckily, two-thirds of Neighborhood A’s performances had been no shaggy dog account. Turtle superbly sang Steve Winwood’s “Higher Esteem,” Kangaroo gave us her signature ballad with the Dixie Chicks’ “No longer Ready to Create Nice,” and White Tiger grooved to Correct Acknowledged Fred’s “I’m Too Sharp.” To head with the horny theme of the tune, a dancer in a lion costume got up on a stripper pole, due to that’s utterly sane and never weird at all. I become rendered speechless, as become Nicole Scherzinger.
The sizable cat even admitted “I by no map sung in entrance of a crowd” sooner than his efficiency, to which each person at house potentially answered with, “WE KNOW.”
Then, Cannon brought out a cutout of Ken Jeong as an instance apt how big White Tiger is (and how Jeong with out a doubt needs to arise straighter). Again, my thoughts exit to the PA who become to blame of conserving these cardboard cutouts stable.
The viewers voted, and so they chose White Tiger as the main to join the bottom three of the night.
Subsequent up become Neighborhood B, giving us a differ of songs. First up become Kitty with “It is All Coming Again to Me Now” by Celine Dion, adopted by Banana rocking out to “Candy Home Alabama” by Lynyrd Skynyrd, and Frog confirmed off all of his talents with “Bounce” by Kris Kross.
They every shined of their maintain map; panelist Robin Thicke talked about the feline’s efficiency become “sizable singing, length,” and I agree. Banana got each person to lift their palms, while Frog’s rapping prowess made White Tiger peep “wiggity wiggity wiggity wack” by comparison.
But one person needed to enter the bottom three, and sadly, Banana wasn’t slippery sufficient to get away.
The reveal saved the correct for last, as Neighborhood C knocked it out of the park. Night time Angel’s version of Andra Day’s “Rise Up” got the total panelists to their ft, while Rhino’s “What a Man Gotta Create” by the Jonas Brothers become fun and twangy. Within the extinguish, Astronaut vastly shocked each person with his very excellent rendition of Rick Astley’s “By no map Gonna Give You Up.” It become so stunning that the English singer even tweeted his praise of Astronaut.
Then, McCarthy confirmed off her lush armpit hair, freaking her fellow panelists out, sooner than revealing it become groundless. She adopted that up by tying with herself for the worst wager of the week, guessing that Derek Jeter become below Rhino’s costume. Earlier in the episode, McCarthy predicted that Chris Evans a.ample.a. Captain The US shall be Turtle’s smartly-known person alter-ego.
While Rhino did sizable on stage, he become outshined by his Neighborhood C cohorts and become despatched to the bottom, joining Banana and White Tiger. These singers’ fate become in the panelists’ palms, and so they made up our minds to send the sizable cat packing. R.I.P. to his very excellent costume, which become designed and handcrafted by The Masked Singer’s Marina Toybina and her group.
When the cowl came off, White Tiger become revealed to be … former Recent England Patriots smartly-known person and three-time Large Bowl champion Desire Gronkowski! EW known as it weeks ago, having picked up on the total clues related to Recent England, Gronkowski’s recognition for being a celebration boy, his affinity for WWE, and more.
After his elimination, Gronk admitted to EW he wasn’t pretty ready for what he become getting himself into. “I’ve always wished to be taught to disclose. I’ve in actuality always wished to be taught to bounce, too. When I got the opportunity, I with out a doubt did now not know exactly what I become entering into,” he talked about. “You faux esteem no person even knew you existed underneath the costume, esteem that scene in the movie Gigantic Daddy where the baby puts on shades pretends no person can stare him. I roughly felt esteem that. It grew me a pair.”
Now the Large Nine are down to eight people, so you need to well possess to positively tune in next week as we get closer and closer to handing out the golden cowl. I apt hope next episode will be as weird and fun as tonight’s.
