“The Masked Singer” Continues…


In this past week’s installment of The Masked Singer, we were treated to a singing flower, two birds, and at last, a fox…so you might say that this show is furry friendly, with a high percentage of animal-themed contestants.

The Flower reminded me a little of Batman villainess Poison Ivy, but she had a great set of pipes, and sang her way to victory over her opponent the Eagle, who you still had to love as an American icon, looking a bit like an avian retro-hippy. In a matchup which pitted the Penguin again the Fox, the competition was closer but the Fox prevailed, resplendent in knee-length boots, a top hat, and a couple of steampunk or perhaps cybernetic embellishments. This Fox moved well and had a good sense of stage presence, cutting a dashing figure as he sang a Maroon 5 song, grooving with the audience. Some think that the Fox is Wayne Brady, who has the song and dance chops to give this performance. It worked for me, but I’m admittedly biased…

The second-chance “Smackdown” then pitted Eagle vs. Penguin, and it was the end of the line for Eagle, who was unmasked to be Dr. Drew Pinsky, an addiction medicine specialist and media celebrity. As for the Fox, I’m looking forward to seeing more of him…

    If it were Wayne Brady, he probably would’ve sung “Hi Diddledy-Dee (An Actor’s Life For Me).” For one thing, this contestant’s costume makes him look like the foxy con artist from Disney’s PINOCCHIO! And, secondly; Wayne started out as a Tigger-impersonating cast member at Disneyland.

      I think that the vulpine con artist from “Pinocchio” was named “Honest John,” and I found him to be an offensive stereotype of foxes. Wayne Brady if he once performed as “Tigger” for Disney may then be furry-friendly; he also likes “Star Trek” a lot, once having that as the theme for a day of “Let’s Make a Deal.”
