With FOX’s mega-hit show The Masked Singer on the rise, the stakes have begun to rise as well. And as stakes rise, the celebrity stars get bigger and better. With amazing performances this season by the Untitled Goose, Sven from Frozen, and an Actual Furry, the most anticipated performances every week were from none other than the White Bronco.
However, most fans could not anticipate who hid under the mask and behind that angelic voice. Audible gasps could be heard as the Horse’s head was pulled off revealing the one, the only: OJ Simpson!
The retired football star became a quick fan favorite with performances such as, “Blood on the Floor” by Fleetwood Mac, “Murder was the Case” by Snoop Dog, and “Psycho Killer” by Talking Heads. After the big reveal, the show's host, Nick Cannon, asked Simpson why he chose his songs every week. Simpson replied, “I couldn’t tell you, Nick. The songs just speak to me.”
After the mask came off, Simpson was given one last opportunity to knock the crowd dead. With tears in his eyes, the ex-White Bronco gave a powerful rendition of “Pumped Up Kicks” by Foster the People to bring the episode to an end.
Be sure to tune in next week for the season finale where the final two contestants face off. Who will reign victorious, the Black Cat or the Zodiac Killer?
