There were a couple of surprises on this Saturday’s The Masked Singer… the unveiled artist was ACTUALLY FAMOUS and Rita Ora’s guessing game was strong!
Host Joel Dommett revealed the latest character to be voted off was Daisy the flower… US artist Kelis in real life!
The Milkshake singer’s unveiling shocked celebrity panellists Davina McCall, Jonathan Ross and Danny Osmond, who was standing in for Ken Jeong.
Amazingly, Rita Ora – who has been widely and wildly off the mark guessing the singers – correctly identified the 40-year-old singer.
She said: “I’m the first person to get it right out of all the panellists. Can I just say one of the most important artists when I was growing up.”
Revealing why she agreed to take part in the show, Kelis said: “People have just been telling me my voice was distinct my whole career. I said let’s see how distinct my voice is.”
Earlier there was some embarrassment for the programme as Jonathan guessed that the Daisy might be singer Natalie Cole, who passed away in 2015.
This was followed up by a tweet from the verified Twitter account of The Masked Singer, which read: “Daisy. Who are you?! Our detectives think it could be @NatalieCole, ‘MissCherryLala, @FleurEast or @Alyssa_Milano Who do YOU think it is? #MaskedSinger (sic).”
However, the tweet was later removed after fans pointed out the mistake.
I can’t believe Kelis was behind the mask on The Masked Singer. I mean that’s quite a big deal isn’t it?
Kelis is the fifth star to be eliminated from the show.
Patsy Palmer was unmasked in week one, with politician Alan Johnson leaving in week two.
Singer Justin Hawkins was revealed as a contestant in week three and last week, fans were shocked to find out former footballer Teddy Sheringham was disguised as the Tree.
Viewers were impressed to see a performer of Kelis’ calibre on the series…
