The Masked Singer US has unveiled two more singers as Venus Flytrap and Gopher were both eliminated.
The first contestant to be unmasked during this week’s Hall of Fame Night was Venus Flytrap.
The performer was eliminated after the initial round of performances and was revealed to be Olympic gold medallist and two-time heavyweight champion George Foreman.
Out of the four judges, only Robin Thicke guessed correctly.
“You know, it was really fun but it was work,” Foreman told Entertainment Weekly. “It was work to put on a costume.
“I’m so happy because you’d think when you retire from boxing, you don’t need to exercise anymore, and I went that way for a while, but I kept at it with sit-ups and push-ups and things like that. Little did I know when it was time for that costume, my push-ups and sit-ups came in handy again.”
The two remaining singers – Bride and Gopher – were then tasked with the week’s battle royale, which was a rendition of Smash Mouth’s ‘All Star’.
Bride ended up the victor, and Gopher was then unmasked as lead Parliament-Funkadelic member George Clinton. Both Thicke and Nicole Scherzinger guessed correctly.
“I knew that was the one I wanted,” Clinton said of his costume. “It was a cool, colourful character that looks like it would have been in P-Funk anyway.”
This season has seen a number of changes from the usual format, including multiple unmaskings every week, battle royales, and themed nights.
