We are still not over The Masked Singer. In fact, we’ve been playing Sun’s performances over and over since she won and was revealed in the final season 4 as LeAnn Rimes. But move on to his thinning opportunity The masked dancer was not so bad because we basically saw the same faces TMS (which will be back in 2021).

Ken Jeong, who at this point is the de facto Fox mascot, has returned to his familiar spot next to the panelists’ table next door TMS season 4’s giraffe, aka Brian Austin Green. Craig Robinson hosted the sham agent, who was a guest panelist on ‘Another Mother’s Brother. Really the only new additions to the Masks extensive television universe were Paula Abdul and Ashley Tisdale, who joined Jeong and Green as panelists.

The structure of this nine-episode program will be known TMS viewers – ten masked contestants compete in two groups until they are linked to a Super Six and eventually to three finalists. The biggest difference between the performances – apart from the dance – is that there are more opportunities for participants to reveal clues. There are tips in clue packages and choreography, plus panel members can hear one word of the dancers’ real voices and ask them questions.

Before we get a summary, I have to state that I know very little about dance terminology, so you will read a lot about “he did his thing” and “she definitely made a move”, because I rarely know exactly what ‘ a kind of movement that offends anyone.

Either way, tonight we met the participants of Group A: Hammerhead, Tulip, Cricket, Disco Ball and Exotic Bird. The very torn shark dances on Backstreet Boys’ “Everybody,” and then we hear his real voice. It cut me off because he’s like a building sweater beach guido, but his voice belonged to someone. The situation would probably have thrown in a box at a high school.

Although we do not know who he is, ‘all of us do you know is that Hammerhead nailed it, ”Robinson said, taking a page from the Nick Cannon School of Hosting.

Then, dancing to Fergie’s “Fergalicious”, was Tulip, who looked young based on the “ok bloomer” in the clue package, the stairs straight out of a TikTok dance challenge, and even the TikTok symbol she used with her hands made petals on stage. . Tulip will be one of the contestants to beat, as her grace and energy, not to mention the expert tap dancing, has made it clear that she is no stranger to the dance floor.

Third place went to Cricket, which dug into the Pointer Sisters ‘”Jump for My Love” followed by Disco Ball while boogied with Bruno Mars’ “Uptown Funk”. The latter was a bit stiff, but due to the aggressive positivity of the panelists, you would have thought he was doing an Olympic valuable hand jump. And you thought the judges were too kind The Masked Singer!

Finally, Exotic Bird (in heels, no less) danced to “Con Calma – Remix” by Daddy Yankee, Katy Perry and Snow.

The first participant eliminated was … Disco Ball!

Green guessed he was LL Cool J, Jeong said Smokey Robinson, Abdul said Ving Rhames, and Tisdale predicted he was Lionel Richie.

Disco Ball was unveiled and revealed as rapper and actor Ice-T!

Clues leading to the Law & Order: SVU star includes that he was ready to “serve and protect” as well as to show a shark fin in reference to his SVU Odafin “Fin” Tutuola, and said he wanted to show his “true colors” (the rapper has a song called “Colors” from the 1988 movie of the same name), his Word Up clue “Grammy” (he has one victory and three nominations), and his name was literally in the clue package when they showed a jar of iced tea!

Ice-T told EW during his retirement interview that he only had two hours to learn the choreography, and that the time to perform the mask was so bad that he was just worried about staying upright. “I threw all the choreography out the window. I said I just didn’t want to blow my ass off on national television like that. It would be the nightmare.”

The masked dancer will introduce us on Wednesday 6 January to Group B’s sloth, ice cube, zebra, cotton candy and Miss Moth and will continue on the same day.
