'The Masked Singer' Season 1, Episode 7 "All Together Now" Is One "Smoove" Criminal [REVIEW]
We are on a roll here at Bleeding Cool! We predicted the latest reveal on FOX's The Masked Singer a few weeks ago. With Week 7 "All Together Now", the celebrity contestants are trimmed down to the Top 5 and only the best singers remain in the game. Lion, Bee, Rabbit, Peacock, and Monster will compete in next week's semi-finals for a "Double Unmasking"–but before we get ahead of ourselves, let's recap the performances and clues from "All Together Now" with a little commentary from Leigh Kade and I following…
So who was it that didn't make the cut?
Tiffany: This was a great episode! All of the performances were entertaining, J.B. Smoove is hilarious and the new clues provided unexpected insights. I still think we're on the right track with our guesses.
Leigh: Yeah, we're definitely past the "filler celeb that isn't a singer" phase, with La Toya Jackson being unmasked on Wednesday! Sure, she isn't the highest profile entertainer, but she was part of a musical dynasty!
Tiffany: I love that Gladys Knight sang a Tina Turner classic and name dropped all of her friends/suspected mystery celebs.
Leigh: Classic misdirect for sure! I'm still amazed with how great she sounds. I know life doesn't end when you hit 70, but she makes it sound like nothing's changed.
Tiffany: You are totally right about Rumor Willis as Lion. She made her Broadway debut as Roxie Hart from Chicago and the clues verified it. She didn't even cross my mind, so well done, Sir!
Leigh: It was a wild, whiskey-inspired guess?
Tiffany: Ah yes, you're drinking game does wonders!
Everybody 100% knows Donny Osmond is Peacock and there is no more denying it between the clues and performances. Watch any of his footage on YouTube and you just know.
Leigh: Imagine everyone's surprise when it was Marie all along…
I'm pretty convinced on who Rabbit and Monster are, although I'm not 100% sure like the others. It just doesn't sound like Joey Fatone's singing voice, so I'm still betting on Joey McIntyre. Both were on Dancing with Stars and ham it up as overall performers, so it is a tight race.
My gut says Monster is Wayne Brady. It's funny because the judges guessed him for someone else. The cool thing with Brady is that he's talented enough to make his voice sound different for each performance. His improv and singing skills are showcased in each number.
Leigh: Brady has a ton of vocal talent, and I would love to see him under the mask! I've been watching a lot of Whose Line lately just to see if you're right, which isn't helping me figure anything out- but it's been a lot of fun anyway!
And I still think Rabbit is Joey Fatone, but that's still completely based on my lack of boy-band thinky bits. Throw out any boy-band clue, I'm guessing Fatone!
Tiffany: Haha! Well, maybe Brady will have a tell you can pick up on.
So you are just Fatone biased. It's okay, my love for BSB is still going strong.
I can't wait to see what Kenan Thompson has to say next week and I'm a little nervous about the double unmasking–I don't want this silly show to end. It is the kind of carefree entertainment we need to unwind after a long and tiring day.
FOX's The Masked Singer airs on Wednesdays at 9 p.m. ET.
