After three weeks of watching the prawn take centre stage, popular television presenter Darren McMullen was unmasked tonight as The Masked Singer Australia’s charismatic crustacean.
Despite his magnetic and charming stage presence, Darren’s rendition of Robbie William’s Let Me Entertain You, was shrimply not the best.
Before unveiling himself, the guessing panel of Jackie O, Lindsay Lohan, Dave Hughes, Dannii Minogue and guest panellist, Luke McGregor, all had their final stabs at who was hiding under the mask.
For Dannii, the prawn’s identity had been krilling her. A subtle wave to her during his first performance, had her questioning if she knew him. Guided by the clues, Dannii decided to lock in Red Symons. Lindsay guessed Redfoo, Dave suggested Karl Stefanovic and Luke thought all signs pointed to Ronan Keating. Convinced there was more to that first wave to Dannii, Jackie was convinced it was Dannii’s ex-boyfriend Kris Smith.
When asked by host Osher Günsberg on why he wanted to join the show, Darren said: “My whole life I’ve wanted to sing and be on stage. If I could do that somehow with a mask and hidden behind this prawn…that would be a good opportunity.”
As we bid farewell to Darren, The Masked Singer Australia journey continues for three lucky entertainers who made it through tonight’s culling.
With undoubtedly the best moves in the competition, Robot continued to rock the house down with his impressive vocals and a high energy performance of Justin Bieber and Ed Sheeran’s smash hit, I Don’t Care.
Our fierce and fervent Lion floored the crowd and the panellists when she belted out her rendition of David Bowie’s power ballad, Heroes.
And last, but certainly not least, the Wolf took us back in time with his happy howling of The Trammps, Disco Inferno.
