The Masked Singer Season 8 Semi-Finals Recap: Blizzard Reveal

SPOILER ALERT: Don’t read ahead if you haven’t watched “The Masked Singer” Season 8 Episode 10, “Battle of the Semi-Finals,” which airs Nov. 24 on Fox.

Two episodes in one week? “The Masked Singer” returned on Thanksgiving night for its semi-finals (and what seemed like another subtle jab at host Nick Cannon’s baby-making skills, via a chyron suggesting he’s sitting at the children’s table).

The Thanksgiving-themed episode saw comedian Nikki Glaser unmasked as Snowstorm, leaving two finalists – Harp and Lambs – for next week’s finale.

Glaser was unmasked after taking on Harp and Lambs in a three-way battle royal (in which all three took turns singing Kelly Clarkson’s song “Since U Been Gone”).

For Snowstorm, Jenny McCarthy-Wahlberg succeeded with Nikki Glaser. Robin Thicke thought it was Whitney Cummings. Nicole Scherzinger chose Iliza Schlesigner. Ken Jeong guessed Kristen Wiig.

Nikki Glaser as Snowstorm joins Ray Parker, Jr. as Sir Bugaboo, Linda Blair as Scarecrow, Chris Jericho as Bride, Adam Corolla as Lawyer, George Foreman as Venus Flytrap, George Clinton as Gopher, Joey Lawrence as Walrus, Le’Veon Bell as Milkshake, Kat Graham as Robo Girl, Jerry Springer as Beetle, Gloria Gaynor as Mermaid, Mario Cantone as Maise, Daymond John as Fortune Teller, Barry Williams /Christopher Knight/Mike Lookinland as the Mummies, Montell Jordan as Panther, Jeff Dunham as Pi-Rat, Chris Kirkpatrick as Hummingbird, Eric Idle as Hedgehog, and William Shatner as Knight as celebrities revealed in “The Masked Singer” in Season 8 .

This season, “The Masked Singer” adopted a new “King or Queen of Masked Singer” format. This meant that three or four costumed celebrities performed each week, but only one continued to compete against two or three other people the following week.

This led to the semi-finals, with Harp surviving round one and being the first to advance to the semi-finals, while Lambs won round two and also made it to the semi-finals, with Snowstorm winning round three. .

Season 8 of “The Masked Singer” included costumes such as “Bride”, “Avocado”, “Venus Fly Trap”, “Sir Bugaboo”, “Scarecrow”, “Hedgehog”, “Mommies”. Thematic episodes included “Vegas Night”, “Comedy Roast”, “Hall of Fame”, “Muppets Night”, “Andrew Lloyd Webber Night”, “TV Themes”, “’90s Night”, “Thanksgiving” and “Fright Night “. “Guests this season included Donny Osmond, Andrew Lloyd Webber, The Muppets, Will Arnett, Leslie Jordan, Joel McHale, Tori Spelling, Jon Lovitz, Jodie Sweetin, Carrot Top, Blue Man Group, Lance Bass, Danielle Fishel, Sheila E .and Drew. Carey.

Season 8 nominees “bring a total of 32 Grammy nominations, 16 Emmy wins, 8 gold albums, 4 Golden Globe nominations, 42 books, 10 Teen Choice awards and 5 stars on the Hollywood Walk of Fame” , according to Fox.

Voice over package: “Ever since I was little, I always dreamed of being a pop star. When I was in high school, I took singing lessons. And one day, in high school, my mother told me that she had gotten a call from my teacher saying “I’m sorry, but your daughter doesn’t have it”. It was the day my dream died. That’s why I’m grateful to still be on this show. I’m so grateful to have the opportunity to express myself in a way that I never thought I could artistically and I hope I reach the final next week and can continue to inspire n’ any adult child who thinks you don’t have it Because I promise you you have it Just unmask it If my singing teacher is watching don’t change the channel Because proving that you was wrong one day kept me going all these years. This one’s for you, dream killer!

Voice over package“I’m really excited about making the semi-finals and I really want to win. I’m so grateful to be here because I’ve always been a fan of the show. Me, my family and my friends are still watching it, and it’s been very hard not to say anything. Now my sisters don’t know, my father doesn’t know, my friends don’t know. My man doesn’t know. He thinks I’m making a movie. My mother is the only person I have spoken to. My mom and I are a lot alike. She was a singer like me, she’s like my rock. If I had a handful of people who believed in me like my mom believes in me, I know I can soar this far. This woman thinks I can do anything. I want to win this for her. Thank you mom for being such a good example in my life and for being my best friend.

Index: “Meeting.” “For a long time, I didn’t think we would ever sing together on stage again. But I never gave up on getting the three of us back together. It is unthinkable for us not to sing together for the rest of our lives.

Voice over package“On this Thanksgiving, there is nothing we are more grateful for than one another. And that’s something we’ve always known, even when we were young girls. We were young women when we hit hard. And even though we were grateful, we were exhausted that we started having problems. And it was just very sad. We knew that breaking up was the best decision at that time. It was a good thing for us. It really gives you perspective and a break. And you can find each other. When we got together, it felt like no time had passed. And that bond is what we take in half -final. We’ve won other awards in our lives, but it’s been a long, long time. And we’re ready for another win. We’re just going to fight to see who gets the trophy.
