The Masked Singer: Can the Masked Singer be a professional singer? | TV & Radio | Showbiz & TV

At the weekend, The Masked Singer returned where five of the contestants sung to impress both the judges and the live studio audience. This time it was the Chameleon’s turn to make his exit and fans were shocked to learn who the celebrity was behind the mask. However, can the masked singers sing professionally?

On Saturday night’s episode (Saturday, January 11), the Duck and the Chameleon were in the bottom two, having received the least amount of votes from the audience.

To save themselves from being unmasked, Duck unexpectedly sung Ave Maria while Chameleon gave a touching performance of True Colours by Cyndi Lauper.

However, it was up to the judge’s in the end to decide which one stayed and which one went.

Sadly, judges Jonathan Ross, Davina McCall, Ken Jeong and the Chameleon’s number one fan on the panel Rita Ora chose to save Duck.

Viewers were then surprised by the identity of the Chameleon which was revealed just minutes later as he took off his mask for the first time.

Underneath the costume was Justin Hawkins, lead singer of British rock band The Darkness.

Following the reveal, the camera turned around on some of the audience members who were clearly shocked.

When asked about why he wanted to do the ITV show by presenter Joel Dommett, Hawkins joked: “I did it because I wanted to show you guys that I’m still alive.”

Many of the contestants on the American version of The Masked Singer have also been professional singers.

In the first season, Donny Osmond, Gladys Knight, La Toya Jackson and Rumer Willis all took part.

There were fewer singers in the second series of the American show but there were still a few in the mix.

These were Seal, Chris Daughter, Patti LaBelle and Michelle Williams.

The three contestants to have been kicked off The Masked Singer UK have been the Chameleon, the Pharaoh who turned out to be former Home Secretary Alan Johnson and ex-EastEnders actress Patsy Palmer who was the Butterfly and the first to make her exit.

In the next episode, we will see Daisy, Fox, Monster, Octopus and Tree battle it out to keep their identities a secret.

The Masked Singer returns on Saturday, January 18 on ITV.
