It was Thanksgiving, but every day Halloween is a costume contest The Masked Singer. And the show He was definitely still in the Halloween spirit on Wednesday, however, with the (presumably delayed due to World Series) episode of Fright Night – which culminated with two very talented horror icons being revealed at the witching hour. But this rock horror picture show had a twisted ending, when one of the contestants, the Scarecrow – who turns out to be one of horror cinema’s ultimate icons – performed an exorcism by revealing herself.

Only one celebrity The Masked Singer History has done this before (although forgetful host Nick Cannon, who clearly has a lot on his mind these days, claimed this was a series first): when Season 4’s “The Gremlin” Mickey ripped off his hood and quit suddenly. This week, the Scarecrow volunteered to have her pumpkin head removed and lost the competition – even though she was less intimidating than Mickey, and actually had a much better chance than Mickey of moving on to the next round. In fact, judge Ken Jeong had just declared her sultry rendition of Steve Miller’s “Abracadabra” the most magical performance of the night.

“Wait, wait, wait, wait!” Scarecrow intervenes, just as Nick is about to announce the episode’s first elimination. “I have something to say! I love this show so much. I came to share with you how much I love you and what you all have done for the world and family entertainment. But I would like to officially bow down and unmask, and let these two great rivals continue,” she continued, graciously referring to her two competitors, Snowstorm and Sir Bug-a-Boo. . “These competitors are the real deal. … I have a really special reason for being here and I want them to enjoy the stage and all the accolades they deserve.”

The shocked rulers’ mouths opened wide, they seemed to be living and breathing rubber Scream masks. But before this mighty pumpkin is smashed, the judges had one last chance to find out its identity. They zeroed in on her scary movie evidence, and one specific witch evidence, and guessed that that might be it hocus pocusBette Midler, The The Witches of EastwickSusan Sarandon, witchesAnjelica Huston, Fatal attractionGlenn Close, HalloweenJamie Lee Curtis, OR ScreamNeve Campbell, Courteney Cox, Drew Barrymore, or Parker Posey.

But if only they’d zeroed in on the rainbow skate in Scarecrow’s clue pack, it would have led them to correct the 1979 cinematic classic. Roller Boogie and to Golden Globe Award-winning actress Linda Blair. (Linda won the Globe Award for The ExorcistNot for cylinder the dancejust to be clear.) It was another obvious “heads-turning” piece of evidence that the judges somehow overlooked.

The judges were dumbfounded when Linda unbuttoned her head, and it looked like their heads were about to spin and hurl pea soup. “There is a legend in the building!” Nick shouted. “My mind blown! Jenny McCarthy Wahlberg said:

Linda’s performance was unexpectedly sexy and funky, which is probably why the panel didn’t guess that this was the 63-year-old artist formerly known as Regan MacNeil. But Linda has apparently picked up some rock stars from her former musician boyfriends, among them Rick Springfield, Deep Purples Glenn Hughes, Neil Giraldo, Styx Tommy Show, and most notably, Rick James. That’s really I was The kind of girl you read about in new wave magazines! LA powerpop band Redd Kross wrote a song about it.

But Linda did not continue The Masked Singer To show off your pop tracks or rock credits. The founder of the animal welfare organization, Linda Blair World Heart Foundation, was a woman on a mission to get the word out, and she felt mission accomplished. “Let me tell you what [The Masked Singer does] For me and what you do for the world: You take us out of the hardest time in history for one hour a week,” she began, thanking the judges. “I deal with animals that are abused and thrown onto the streets. I have a foundation… I travel the world and do what I can to make it a better place. You all have no idea, for your kindness and love. And if you can heal, with as much pain as I feel trying to save those who don’t deserve what’s happening, we can do better. And I feel you are my family.”

“Thank you, Linda, for using this platform in the best way possible,” said Ken, who declared this his favorite reveal ever. “We love you!”

So, this last week left the reigning Queen, Blizzard, and this week’s other new contender, Sir Bug-a-Boo, who looks like a mite. But even though Sir Bog-a-Boo’s heartwarming, sultry snark in “The Devil in a Blue Dress” made Jenny (who seemed to be wearing a Terry Noone Halloween costume from Berlin for some reason) raving about his “beautiful tune,” after he battled a blizzard In Rockwell’s Somebody’s Watching Me, The Masked Singer The dreams were dark or depressing. (I personally thought he was better in battle, with his raspy rap better suited to the song.) And we found out – as Jenny had predicted almost immediately – that this was Ray Parker Jr.

well a path Ray was! Not only did this colorful singer sound just like the “Ghostbusters” theme singer and Motown legend, but three of his main keys were His smile is greenAnd the Old school landline phone with three question marks on itand even real ghost! I swear, the show’s producers weren’t even trying to be opaque when they slapped the Bug-a-Boo guide package together this week; They may have attached a proton pack to Ray’s back while they were at it. I have no idea why the other three judges bothered to suggest that those could be Jordan Peele, Randy Jackson, Lil’ Real Hurry, or one of the Wayans brothers…or why Jenny changed her guess at the last minute to Ghostbusters Actor Ernie Hudson.

“Man, you’re an accomplished musician and wrote some of the biggest hits in the world as a guitarist from your Motown days—everyone from Stevie Wonder, Marvin Gaye—and just really been a staple in this industry for a long time,” Nick said excitedly, to which Ray quipped, “And I thought I would always be a player this is show! … But I want to say, when you need someone else to come on this show and you need someone extra, who are you going to call? “

So, that meant Blizzard held onto her crown for a second week, after her stellar solo performance in Ava Max’s “Sweet But Psycho,” so she’ll now be heading into the Season 8 semifinals against former reigning queens Harp and the Lambs. It is already clear that Harp is Amber Riley and Lambs is Wilson Phillips (The The Masked Singer The producers didn’t make it they The clues are pretty tricky too), but who is Blizzard?

I am less certain of this, and the judges’ guesses were all over the place; Last week they thought Blizzard might be Anna Kendrick, Heather Graham, Kathryn Hahn, Elisa Schlesinger, Aubrey Plaza, Whitney Cummings, or Zooey Deschanel, this week they’ve thrown in random names like Olivia Rodrigo, Sabrina Carpenter, and many more Real Housewives. . But I’m sticking to the guess I made last week: I think this is comedian Nikki Glaser. It looks like her.

But the clues (which, admittedly, were more complicated in this case) also add up. Blizzard said she had to be “cold-blooded” to survive in her male-dominated field, and women have historically had a hard time in the comedy circuit. She said she shared the stage with Rob Lowe, and she totally killed it on that Comedy Central Rob Lowe Roast. (It was one of her visual keys charred Chestnuts, too.) She mentioned “speed dating,” which is what Nikki did on Instagram Live during the pandemic, plus Nikki is the current host blind date. We saw a house and a welcome mat pointing towards Nikki Welcome home Nikki Glaser? reality series, and you’ve heard the phrase “pitch perfect,” most likely a reference to it perfect private tv. And finally, we saw a comic book The Masked Universe… well, Nicky stands up cartoons.

The Masked Singer He’ll leave Halloween behind and get into the current holiday spirit Thursday — yes, the 24th, Thanksgiving — with a special semi-final episode that will determine which contestants advance to the season 8 grand finale. So, if you prefer to watch Lambs vs. Snowstorm vs. Harp instead of Bills vs. Lions or Patriots vs. I’ll see you later.
