“The Masked Singer”is just three episodes away from the final. On the December 4 show, four of the remaining seven celebrities fight it out for their places in the semi-final. They are covered completely in costumes as the Butterfly, Fox, Thingamajig and Tree. Each is hoping to avoid being sent packing at the end of the episode by the four judges (Ken Jeong, Jenny McCarthy, Nicole Scherzinger, Robin Thicke).
Of this quartet, one of the strongest singers is hidden inside the Fox costume. In his three past performances he has impressed us with his stage presence. In week 3, he wowed the crowd with his cover of “This Love” by Maroon 5. In week 5, he delivered a toe-tapping version of “Hey Look Ma, I Made It” by Panic! at the Disco. And in week 6, he was the standout with his rendition of “Every Little Step” by Bobby Brown.
We’ve been doing some digging and think we have figured out which famous face is hidden inside the Fox costume. Keep reading for the second of this week’s “The Masked Singer” spoilers.
We are absolutely sure that the Fox is Wayne Brady. Don’t think we are right? Well consider the following:
Collectively “The Masked Singer” contestants have appeared on Broadway 22 times. Brady earned rave reviews for his star turns in the Tony-winning musicals “Chicago” and “Kinky Boots.”
Brady has won five Emmys and been nominated 17 times for TV’s top honor. Combined, the 16 celebrities on “The Masked Singer” have won 19 Emmys from 69 nominations
The Fox characterizes himself in his clues video as “quick-witted.” That is certainly how we’d describe Brady who has displayed his sense of humor on a wide range of television shows, including his own talk show, the game show “Let’s Make a Deal” and the improv show “Whose Line Is It Anyway?”
The Fox revealed that he has worked with Doogie and Doubtfire. The former refers to the lead on the TV show “Doogie Howser, M.D.” played by Neil Patrick Harris; Brady was his brother on ” How I Met Your Mother.” The latter alludes to the movie “Mrs. Doubtfire,” in which Robin Williams played the title role; he and Brady appeared together on the improv show “Whose Line.”
The Fox calls himself as a “super-hero.” Brady did the voice of the character Micron in the animated TV series “Batman Beyond.”
We see the Fox reading a bedtime story to a young female fox; Brady has a daughter, Maile.
What do you make of our best guess? We won’t know if we are right till the Fox is unmasked when he leaves the competition or wins season 2 of “The Masked Singer.” Who do you think is hiding inside the Fox costume? Sound off in the comments section below.
