The curtain fell on Puppet tonight, as our star from The Wiggles was dropped like a hot puppet-ato from The Masked Singer Australia, following his magnetic take on Ricky Martin’s Spanish hit Livin’ La Vida Loca.
Disguised beneath an oversized Puppet costume that induced Minogue meltdowns, children’s performer Simon Pryce lit up The Masked Singer Australia stage all the way to Finals Week, however tonight the Big Red Car pulled up and it was finally time for Detective Dannii to learn that she had correctly identified her arch nemesis.
Dave Hughes believed Puppet’s clues rang true for Australian singer Mark Holden, Jackie O placed a bet on music performer Anthony Warlow, and Urzila Carlson couldn’t look past Have You Been Paying Attention? host Tom Gleisner.
Affectionately coined the “walking babushka of joy” by Urzila Carlson, Simon Pryce busted out of Puppet to reveal he was wearing his iconic red skivvy as a nod to The Wiggles.
When asked by host Osher Günsberg on how The Masked Singer Australia compares to The Wiggles, Pryce answered: “The amount of songs we learn on The Wiggles is the equivalent to this, but these are probably a little trickier, and a few more words. I will never complain about wearing a skivvy ever again.”
After a series of performances that left our guessing panel busting for more, it’s now time to mask some noise for Monday’s grand finale contenders – Frillneck, Bushranger and Queen.
Bringing hopeful optimism to 2020, Frillneck charmed the pants off our panel with Don’t Dream Its Over by Crowded House.
Hughesy was having visions of Mad Max The Musical with Bushranger’s performance of Ariana Grande’s One Last Time.
To close out Finals Week, Queen firmed up her bid for the crowning glory with her electric rendition of Robyn’s Dancing On My Own.
