The Masked Singer Australia competition is mighty tough and singing standards this season are charged to new levels,Singer-songwriter Katie Noonanwas revealed to be hidden beneath Sloth’s cuddly exterior, despite hitting the higher notes with Kygo & Whitney Houston’s cover of Higher Love.
Before Sloth unveiled her identity, Urzila Carlson and Dave Hughes were both stuck on the netball clue, with Urzila placing her bet on actress Magda Szubanski and Dave channeling in on former Australian netballer Sharni Layton. Jackie O was leaning towards altruistic singer-songwriter Sia, while Dannii Minogue had a feeling it could be Mahalia Barnes, the daughter of rock legend Jimmy Barnes.
When asked by host Osher Günsberg as to why she came on The Masked Singer Australia, Noonan explained: “Because it’s so much fun, and I love the idea of getting out of my comfort zone. It’s something I have always really been into.” Noonan concluded: “It doesn’t compare to anything.”
Katie Noonan can now lean into her inner Sloth and treat herself to a long kip, but for those that remain on The Masked Singer Australia, it is time to dig into the energy reserves to secure their spot in the pointy end of the competition.
Bushranger kick-started the show with a high energy crack at Lady Gaga’s smash hit Poker Face, before the magic continued with Wizard’s rendition of Gotye’s chart topper Somebody That I Used To Know.
Next up, Kitten tugged at the heart strings and reduced Jackie O to tears with Wendy Matthews’ ballad The Day You Went Away. Rounding out the show was our singing succulent Cactus, with a sassy take on Icona Pop’s club anthem I Love It.
