The masked singer Season 8 returns with an all-new episode on Thursday night. In the spirit of Thanksgiving, the reality series aired its first ever two-night event, where they aired back-to-back episodes two nights in a row.
It was time for the semi-finals as the top 3 masked celebrities took center stage and battled it out for a spot in the grand finale. Judges Nicole Scherzinger, Ken Jeong, Robin Thicke and Jenny McCarthy returned to their seats on the panel alongside host Nick Cannon.
The masked singer Celebrated Thanksgiving on the show. The contestants’ clues are also themed based on what they are grateful for in life.
The Harp, Lambs and Snowstorm took center stage for an epic three-way battle where they each sang a song of their choice. Apart from that, they also competed against each other in the season’s first three-way Battle Royale. Unfortunately, at the end of their performance, the one with the smallest votes was unmasked.
To everyone’s surprise, the masked celebrity who was eliminated after their semi-final performance was Snowstorm.
Snowstorm has been a fan favorite since her first performance on the famous reality TV show. Her voice impressed not only the judges, but also the audience and viewers at home. Apart from this, fans also enjoyed her roasting the judges with her comebacks.
Sadly with her now eliminated from the competition, fans seem to have mixed reactions. They took to social media to share their views. While some were sad that Snowstorm didn’t make it to the finals, others claimed it was the right decision.
Fans affected by Snowstorm’s elimination of The masked singer Season 8
On Twitter, some fans claimed that Snowstorm was robbed of a spot in the grand finale. Some also added that she deserved to be in the final over the lambs.
Meanwhile, some others claimed that the decision was right and that it was time for Snowstorm to go home. Adding to this, some also shared that they predicted that the snowstorm will be unmasked.
Here’s who was under Snowstorm’s mask on The masked singer Season 8
Snowstorm was the second masked celebrity to perform in the semi-finals. She did her rendition of Katy Perry Thinking of you. Before her performance, she shared a clue that revealed she dreamed of being a pop star since she was a child.
She said she took voice lessons when she was in high school but that her mother got a call from her school claiming the star “didn’t have it.” Noting that it was the day her dream died, Snowstorm said it was why she was grateful to be on the show, and continued:
“I’m really grateful for the opportunity to express myself in a way I never thought I would be able to artist.”
After her performance, for her clue on stage, Snowstorm presented the judges with a balloon that said “Squiggly”.
The judges found that she was referring to the squiggly monster that took part in The masked singer. It was none other than the late actor Bob Saget. Snowstorm said that the squiggly monster was her “dear friend”.
She added that while it’s weird for her to “cry out loud,” she stated that Saget is the reason she decided to do the show because his experience was incredibly rewarding. The star continued:
“I’m so glad he got to have it before he died. My performances were there for him whether he wanted it or not.”
When it came time to unmask Snow Storm, she revealed herself to be none other than comedian Nikki Glasser. The only judge who got it right is Jenny McCarthy.
The masked singer Season 8 will return for its grand finale on Wednesday night at 8pm ET. Readers can check your local listings for more information.
