You get used to it. I don't
even see the code. All I see
is Ipecac, Scapular, Polyphemus...




Frog is probably the best performer of the whole bunch but god he just picks hip-hop every single time to disguise the fact that he can't really sing.

Turtle is the best singer, hands down.

Night Angel is probably third place.

Welp. I started thinking it was Zito during this last episode when I noticed something stupid:

The Zito pics he is in a generic/nothing uniform. Why would he have special pictures taken in a non-uniform for any other reason other than so they have a recent picture of him to display when people did their "guesses." Dunno if that makes sense. But most pics they show of people are just normal pics you'd find on GIS or whatever. But that Zito pic is just strange for someone who has 1000s of pics of him in Giants and A's unis.

So something new to look for.

You have this in the UK? Has John Borrowman been on yet? He seems like a good candidate for this show.

One of my early guesses for Unicorn in the UK version was Barrowman. It turned out to be Jake friggin' Shears.

We think there's going to be a second series as despite getting mauled by the critics, it got REALLY good ratings.

Palin killed this show for me, but I'd watch some clips if you could get Hasselhoff, Sisqo, the lead singer from Creed, and Tay Zonday together.

Spoiler for next season: TWO people in one suit!

I hope so. I binged the performances on Youtube and it's nice that they give the performances a little more time and let them breathe, even if I don't know all the songs. Plus they managed to get some people that might be comparable with what the US version pulls out.

Hell, the Masked Singer going on all around the world makes it interesting to see how different versions stack up, from the party atmosphere of the Australian version to the gall of live performances and voting in the German version, to the wholesale copying of costumes in the Russian version. I can link some of the versions if people are interested.

Please do, i've seen clips of the German version, I don't understand why other countries can't do it with a live format. I was sure the UK version was going to be live as we have strict guidelines on voting for things on TV, but then it was just the studio audience that voted and it all seemed a bit pointless watching along at home, guessing who the audience will have voted out each time.

In my mind I just pretend. My brain is my only true friend.


I think they struggled with the A/B/C group format and stretching the contestants out this long honestly. Adding in the extra after-shows (and the 3 recap shows) just seemed like overload at times too.

Now to see who ends up the winner!

Were they able to film another season before COVID hit LA? Fall tv is going to be bleak as hell anyway, I'd actually look forward to watching this fun trash.

I'm pumped for it to be over. Not sure if I want to watch any more after this.

Completely sick of Ken. Annoyed at the transparency of the show.

I think it should go to a live broadcast. 6pm PST, 9pm EST. As it is now, it's just a matter of time before people get sick of all the "tv show" aspects.

can't argue with any of this. I also don't really care about any of the celebrities anymore. they're already scraping the bottom of the barrel overall and when you don't know anything about half of them beyond their name (and sometimes not event that), it's not fun watching.

There was a rumor of a commercial showing a t shirt they were selling with Frog, Monster and Fox on it. People took this to mean Frog was gonna win it.

There weren't any pictures of proof, but it seemed logical.

This season was probably the worst so far, mostly because of the format change, but I'm probably still going to keep watching because I'm a loving moron

Worth it to see Redditors whining about how the show is rigged and had to have a female winner.

Anyway, here's a list of all the performances and reveals from the UK version someone compiled together, without all the chaff.

And here's all the Australian perfofmances.

The German ones are also available officially on Youtube, though someone might need to compile a list of those. Enjoy!

Thanks for the playlists! I haven't seen the last few episodes of the US show and don't really care to but I'm curious about how other countries run it.

NA was great tonight. Also, I changed my guess when I realized a woman hadn't won yet so I said: NA gonna win, and then Nicole says the same thing.

Did anyone notice her victory song looked to be pre-recorded? It didn't look like she was actually singing what we were hearing. That's not saying she wasn't singing, but it looked off just enough that my head went: this was recorded in the studio.

I'd like to see a season that is just big name singers. Janet, Madonna, Sting, Sheeran, and their ilk. Have them try to disguise their voices.

The thing that bothered me about Gronk wasn't that he was Gronk, but that they kept giving him passes and putting him over much more qualified and talented singers. He forgot like half the words to a few of his songs, including We Will Rock You.

he clearly didn't give a poo poo about being on the show and it was a joke to him, which is what made him unwatchable and created all the other problems like forgetting words and getting passes because NFL on Fox or whatever.

I guess an entire contestant pool of athletes would mean most would want to be on the show, I suppose.

I feel like Seal is in this category. I knew in the first 5 seconds. Thatís not me being smarts thatís just because Seal sounds exactly like Seal. I feel like he sang shittier to try to hide his Seal-ness. I kind of found him to be a bigger name than Iíd expect this show to draw but that might be because Iím old.

Same, actually. This season really burned me out and I really sucked at maintaining the OP because I just absolutely lost interest.

So, consequently, Iím officially retiring as curator for these threads. They deserve more upkeep than Iím willing to provide anymore. Sorry guys. Whoever wants to make the thread for the inevitable next season can feel free to copy any and all of my OP material.

Guys like Seal need to show up occasionally on TV to remind people they have a new album out, since their chart hits were from 25 years ago.
