‘The Masked Singer’ spoiler: The Peacock is …

Of the half dozen contestants left on “The Masked Singer,” we are most confident in our best guess as to the true identity of the Peacock. Watching him perform on the quarter-final on February 13 has us even more convinced that we know who he is. This versatile performer has proven adept at singing in a  variety of styles and he has a stage presence that tell us he is a show business veteran. He has given us plenty of hints that confirm his real identity both in the clues videos and in conversation with the judges. Spoilers ahead.

The Peacock is Donny Osmond. In his first three appearances on the show, he aced his covers of the silky smooth “All of Me” by John Legend, the showstopper “The Greatest Show” from the “The Greatest Showman” and the pop hit “Counting Stars” by OneRepublic. Of that first performance, the Peacock said, “it was absolutely exhilarating and I felt like I was 5 years old again.” Donny was just five when he joined the Osmond Brothers in their regular spot on “The Andy Williams Show” in 1963.

He also admitted, “I started out as a little teeny bopper” but added “I’ve had so many different incarnations in my career.” Following success with his brothers, Donny and his sister Marie Osmond had their own TV variety show in the 1970s and a talk show 25 years later. In between, he starred in Broadway musicals and hosted the game show “Pyramid.” After both siblings appeared on “Dancing with the Stars,” they started a Las Vegas nightclub act.
