Spoiler alert: Don’t read in advance if you haven’t watched Season 4’s final episode by two hours.The Mystery Singer, Which aired December 17 on Fox.
Lyn Rimes You shouldn’t feel “blue”: The singer starred on Wednesday night, as her mask was revealed as the winner of Season 4 “The Masked Singer” – The Sun.
“I never thought I’d do anything like this and I don’t think I’d ever do anything like this again,” Rhymes told Variety. “It’s a unique show. I had no idea what I was doing and I’m so glad I did.”
Jenny McCarthy, Berg, and Nicole Scherzinger managed to get along with Lyn Rimes. Ken Jeong thought it was Mandy Moore, while Robin Thicke named Catherine McVeigh.
Rimes said she was excited to be featured in “The Masked Singer” after the COVID-19 pandemic left her without stage. She said, “I’ve never been out of the way and have not performed live since I was 13 years old.” “I longed to be on stage. Then, when I thought about what I could bring to this dark moment in time, I felt like perfect timing. This show in itself is so much fun, unlike any TV show really.”
“It was a million times better than anything I expected, and it was also more difficult,” said Reims. I never expected the outfit to have that much weight. To perform this costume, it was an exercise. I used to come home every night very painful. ”But she added,“ I started young and had no chance to play. So for me part of this was like, “I’m going to go play my costume? Okay good.”
Rimes has just released the new song, “Throw My Arms Around the World,” and is also hosting the podcast “Wholly Human.” In her performance in disguise in “The Masked Singer,” Rimes said she embraced anonymity.
“One of the best things about being behind the mask is for people to feel about me without any prior story,” said Reims. “This is the first time people have felt my essence, voice, and gift as there was no story attached. Especially as a woman, in this business there is a lot more.” [focus on] The way I look and what I wear. “
As for the mushroom, Scherzinger discovered it was black, and stopped Thicke from that too; Ain McCarthy and Berg Ne Yu. Jeong thought he was Pharrell Williams.
Like Rimes, Blacc told Variety that the pandemic and forced dropout from the tour gave him the opportunity to do “The Masked Singer.”
He said, “I’m usually on the road, and I travel around the world.” “It really gave me the opportunity to go home. Also, I feel like now in the world, especially in our country, where there are so many shocks going on with the pandemic and where there are so many political divisions, this symptom was one of the moments when we could all come together and celebrate life. Through music. “
Blacc took the show’s secrecy so seriously that he did not tell his wife at first, and his children were kept in the dark until he revealed on Wednesday.
“I was not told [my wife] For weeks. In the end she would ask, ‘Why don’t you come to hang out with the family? Why do you have to work, why can’t you cancel? So I had to admit to her this very big secret of what was happening. “
Blacc also chose a mushroom costume over broccoli (another option for him), because he thought his first name, which is also a green plant, might be too pronounced.
Like most of the performers in “The Masked Singer,” Blacc said the costume was tougher than expected to maneuver, but he found a way. He said, “When I’m on stage, I like to dance and I like to be physically active, collaborate with the audience, and get them to sing and clap.” “But in this particular case, I was tied to this mushroom head, and the mushroom has a stem so my legs were not free to move. I had to walk around in the skirt. It definitely reduced my mobility. Plus the singing behind the mask was very complicated. I used to make The microphone is much closer to my face. “
As for the songs he chose, Blacc went with feminine songs “Just so I could use a completely different part of my voice. Because if I just got out singing with the same vocabulary, with a little bit of that rasp in there, I think people would have guessed who I am right away” .
As for Crocodile, McCarthy and Berg got it right with Carter. At least the committee members were all in the boy squad mentality: Thick approached another Backstreet Boy, Huey D. Jeong thought it was Nick Lacci. And Scherzinger went with Jordan Knight.
Carter told Variety that he had originally signed up for last season’s appearing in “The Masked Singer” as the turtle. But he then had to drop out of school, and the costume instead went to Jesse McCartney.
When COVID-19 forced to cancel the Backstreet Boys’ tour in South America, Carter decided it was time to revisit the show. Immediately attracted to your alligator costume.
He said, “I just loved the character and what it was supposed to be.” “And this is now in stone. I’ll forever be known as Croc. As for why I want to do this, it’s about bending over to annoyance and siding to challenge.”
Carter said he was also eager to try something new on his own. I have been in Backstreet Boys since I was 11 years old. I was the younger brother of my group. I am a team player and love to be part of a group. But I always felt as if I wasn’t really good on my own, and I didn’t do it alone as a solo artist. He made some recordings, but they failed, and I just felt it was a way to grow a little more as an artist. For my group as well as individually. “
Like Rimes, Carter said he also liked the idea of seeing how fans would react when they didn’t know he was. “There is no other added noise. It’s just the performance itself and the sound. I was interested to know what people would think about it, and I’m actually gladly amazed how far I went.”
Carter, who will release the new single, “80s Movie” on Friday, said the hardest part of the show was the distancing of his son and baby daughter. “I felt that maybe if someone was running the show and wanted to escape a little from the reality of what everyone is going through right now, if I could be a small part of that story, to bring a little joy, that would be the reason I wanted to do it.”
The season’s costumes were Baby Alien, Crocodile, Broccoli, Gremlin, Mushroom, Jellyfish, Whatchamacalit, Lips, Squiggly Monster, Popcorn, Sun, Dragon, Giraffe, Seahorse, Snow Owls and Serpent.
Torey Kelly (Seahorse), Taylor Dane (Popcorn), Chloe Kim (Jellyfish), Paul Anka (Broccoli), Lonzo Ball (Wechamacalette), “Dr. Elvis” Francois (Snake), Clint Black and Lisa Hartman Black were previously detected (Snow Ols), Bob Saget (Squigley Monster), Wendy Williams (Lipps), Mark Sanchez (Foreign Child), Brian Austin Green (Giraffe), Mickey Rourke (Grimlin) and Busta Rhymes (Dragon).
New this season, Program Committee members competed for the “Golden Ear” award based on their first impressions of each masked actor. Toward the end, McCarthy and Berg were in the lead with three points, Thick and Scherzinger each got two, Jeong had no zero.
For Sun, McCarthy Wahlberg initially chose Demi Lovato. Jeong Gwyneth Paltrow appointed. Scherzinger thought it was Catherine McVeigh. Thick thought it was Natasha Penningfield.
