The quarter-final of “The Masked Singer” on February 13 was packed with performances by the six celebrities still in the competition. Among these was the Lion who had the crowd roaring with approval yet again. After watching her wow yet again, we are even more convinced that we know who is lurking beneath that lion’s head. Spoilers ahead
The lion is Rumer Willis, the middle of the three daughters of Demi Moore and Bruce Willis. This is the one time that the judges have led us in the right direction. Nicole Scherzinger, who was the lead of the Pussycat Dolls, is of the opinion that the Lion is not a trained singer.
While Rumer isn’t trained, she has tried her hand at singing before, even headlining the Broadway musical “Chicago.” And she certainly held her own with her first three performances on “The Masked Singer” with “A Little Party Never Killed Nobody (All We Got)” by Fergie, “Feeling Good” by Nina Simone and “California Dreamin'” by the Mamas and Papas.
WEEK FIVE SPOILERS: Who are the Alien, Rabbit
Speaking of mamas and papas, at the end of one of the clues video the Lion was holding a newspaper with the headline “Gold found in Hailey.” Rumer’s parents invested heavily in the small ski resort town of Hailey, Idaho.
As for her choice of costume: Rumer was born on August 16, so she is a Leo (as in lion). Among her 22 tattoos was one of the face of a lion that filled her upper left arm. And she recently appeared on the Fox drama “Empire,” which is centered around the lives of the Lyon family.
WEEK SIX SPOILERS: Who are the Bee, Monster, Peacock
We won’t find out for sure if Rumer is the Lion till she is unmasked. That will only happen if she loses a match-up or wins the show. Do you think we are right about the true identity of the Lion? Sound off in the comments section with your best guesses.
