The “Superweib”, a hit legend and Sylvie Meis: In the current season of the ProSieben show “The Masked Singer” some celebrities have already taken off their costumes. Now the final is coming up – and the question of whether the show can surprise again.
About a month ago, presenter Matthias Opdenhövel (50) opened the show “The Masked Singer” with a promise that was reminiscent of a well-known TV advertisement – according to the motto: my house, my car, my boat.
“Highly decorated” are the new celebrities among the fresh costumes, assured Opdenhövel. To describe all the glamor and glory, he started a staccato list: “We have 17 gold records with us! Eight times platinum! Bambis, Echos, Federal Cross of Merit! “
The Masked Singer 2020: Grand Finale on November 24th
In contrast to the well-known TV commercial, Opdenhövel of course did not put all the cards on the table – because that is the gameplay of the music rate show.
Only when a celebrity is eliminated does he have to take off the costume in which he took part in the show without being recognized. Several shows later you are a little smarter. And the final certainty is approaching: On Tuesday (November 24th, 8:15 p.m., ProSieben) the grand finale will take place.
We have an overview – which celebrities have already been exposed and with which costumes does the guesswork continue?
The Masked Singer 2020: These candidates have already been exposed
Unmasked: The list of candidates for the season is impressive. The biggest names: actress and “super woman” Veronica Ferres (55) and pop star Vicky Leandros (68). Both are not permanent guests on TV shows. Ferres was kicked out at the beginning when she tried to mimic a bee in a disguised voice.
Leandros was revealed as a cat after she had to hear from advice team member Rea Garvey (47) that she could hardly be a professional singer. Oops. Moderator Sylvie Meis (as alpaca), comedian Wigald Boning (as frog) and presenter Jochen Schropp (as lobster) were also exposed.
The Masked Singer: Hippo, Anubis and Alien not yet revealed
The hippopotamus: The thick-legged cloven-hoofed animal prances – rather: dances – across the stage in a ballerina tutu and seems to have a preference for soulful music and New York.
TV chef Nelson Müller (41), who is known to be very good at singing, is highly regarded. Sonja Zietlow (52) in the advice team also threw the name of the 90s great Haddaway (“What Is Love”) into the ring.
The Anubis: The Egyptian deity is still a big mystery, even if ProSieben is clearly trying to direct suspicion on moderator Klaas Heufer-Umlauf (37).
In a circumstantial film, an “insider” stated that they had been together “around the globe” and “never avoided a duel” – an allusion to the Joko and Klaas show “Duel around the world”. But that would be almost too obvious.
Last Monday (November 16) showed why Klaas Heufer-Umlauf can’t wear the Anubis mask: Following the semi-finals of “The Masked Singer”, Klaas’ late night show “Late Night Berlin” ran live from the capital. “The Masked Singer”, however, is recorded in Cologne. Did Klaas Heufer-Umlauf send from Cologne for once? This is what the fans suspect on social media channels. Your argument: Since there is currently no audience in production, the effort would be less and nobody could reveal it.
The alien: The alien had its big moment when it sang the duet “Perfect Symphony” by Ed Sheeran and Andrea Bocelli with a refrigerator – and switched to Italian with a powerful operatic voice.
Luke Mockridge (31) was immediately a hot tip for the Italo alien, who otherwise sounds more like Master Yoda from “Star Wars” – the presenter is the son of a Canadian-Italian couple. Most recently, Rateteam guest Rea Garvey decided on BossHoss singer Alec Völkel: “It feels like Alec, I can only say that!”
The Masked Singer: are Sarah Lombardi or Mandy Capristo under the skeleton costume?
The meerkats: With the cute meerkats, a candidate duo appears for the first time on the show. Right from the start, the names of reality star Daniela Katzenberger and her husband Lucas Cordalis wafted through the rumor mill. They were hardened when the Mannheim comedian Bülent Ceylan (44) heard a familiar dialect in the advice team – Katzenberger comes from the very close Ludwigshafen.
The skeleton: The skeleton with the ice eyes is considered the best voice in the field. The tips have been around two names for weeks: the DSDS runner-up and influencer Sarah Lombardi (28) and the former girl group singer and ex of Mesut Özil: Mandy Capristo (30, band Monrose).
Whereby more points to Lombardi. She has already commented on the rumors in a nebulous manner: “I could well imagine taking part in the show.” (Dpa / jba)
