On episode 4 of “The Masked Singer,” the five celebrities who survived the audience vote on Week 2 returned to perform again. Among these was the Alien. After the clues she gave and her performance of “Feel It Still” by Portugal. The Man on the second episode, we were pretty sure that we knew who was hiding behind this elaborate costume.
Now, following her week 4 cover of “Lovefool” by The Cardigans, we are all but certain. After watching her sing this hit song in the video above, scroll down for a spoiler as to her true identity.
You can forget that speculation in both week 2 and this week by Robin Thicke that it is model Bella Hadid or those comments by Nicole Scherzinger and Ken Jeong that the Alien is the same size as Paula Abdul. We are all but certain that the Alien is La Toya Jackson.
Let’s break down the clues the Alien gave before singing:
She says she dreams about being a young girl again, before the whole world knew her and her family’s name. The Jackson clan has been famous for more than half a century.
The Alien admitted, “You may think I’m out of fashion, but I’m here to rise above all that.” La Toya has tried and tried but she has never reached the heights of fame of her siblings Michael and Janet.
In week 2 she revealed, “In my family, anonymity is a completely alien concept.”
And she admitted then “that growing up in the public’s eye, my life was never really my own.” We know that La Toya’s father, Joe Jackson, was a dominant dad.
Back then, the Alien had declared, “I let others define me but no one will ever control me again.” La Toya was married to her manager Jack Gordon.
We won’t find out for sure if LaToya is the Alien till she is unmasked. That will only happen if she loses the audience vote or wins the show. Do you think we are right about the true identity of the Alien? Sound off in the comments section with your best guesses.
