The Masked Singer is back, however this singing legend didn’t survive long and was ejected from the competition after only one performance.
Taking to the stage disguised as Weather, the 83-year-old singer sung her heart out – but it wasn’t enough, as the iconic singer garnered the fewest votes and was ousted in the first round.
That’s right: Weather is Dionne Warwick. The Dionne Warwick was eliminated. Naturally, fans were outraged.
‘The fact they got rid of Weather – Dionne Warwick FIRST and kept Dippy Egg is insane,’ said X user Queenie_2312.
‘#MaskedSingerUK Audience, we can’t forgive you for that one. An actual legend…’ said @Popprince.
In a clue on the show to her identity, Weather said: ‘Sun, wind and rain are key parts of my core, but one of the panelists has seen me before.’
Other possibilities include references to the singer’s strength and ability to weather the storm, as well as homage to Blues music.
But it was her voice that gave it away…
Maypole, Dippy Egg, and Weather all finished in the bottom three on tonight’s programme after failing to impress the crowd.
Those remaining in the running for this year’s title include Owl, Rat, Cricket, Piranha, Eiffel Tower, Maypole, Bigfoot, Chicken Caesar, Dippy Egg, Bubble Tea, and Air Fryer.
If you’re unfamiliar with the programme and believe we’re spouting gibberish, the notion is that numerous vocalists conceal behind costumes and participate in an anonymous competition.
The big surprise, when the mask comes off and we figure out who the hell that familiar voice came from, is the finest moment of the show.
The frantic Christmas special, which saw Ainsley Harriott named the champion, beating everyone from Jamie Oliver to Alan Titchmarsh, has everyone excited for the new season, and it’s shaping up to be a corker.
Rumours abound over who is who, with I’m A Celebrity’s Fred Sirieix expected to be the Eiffel Tower since, well, he’s French.
Given his Bake Off background, Matt Lucas was a popular candidate for Dippy Egg with the presence of cake and baking in his hints.
People also believe Gordon Ramsey would give it a shot, possibly dressed up as a chef.
Given his athletic pedigree, Freddie Flintoff was speculated to be behind the cricket bug mask, however on tonight’s episode, judge Mo said it sounded more like Levi Roots with a tiny Caribbean tinge in their singing voice.
Bigfoot might be any number of celebrities, but many believe it is Peter Crouch, because to his extremely large size 12 feet. The judges were perplexed by this one tonight, but only time will tell.
Host Jonathan Ross reckons his ‘best guess this year is Ryan Reynolds’.
‘He’s in Wrexham a lot of the time now. You never know. I mean he’s up for a laugh!’ he said. Wild.
Meanwhile, Kelly Brook may be Piranha because she featured in Piranha 3D in 2010.
As you can see, the outfits have a lot of meaning, so put on your thinking masks…
The Masked Singer airs every Saturday at 7pm
