Jacki O completely fooled by Masked Singer reveal

Jacki O completely fooled by Masked Singer reveal

Two more celebrities were revealed on Sunday night’s episode of The Masked Singer – one of them n international music superstar, and the other a very recognisable face who left one of the judges foundering for excuses.

It was none other than radio shock-jock Kyle Sandilands inside a Paw Patrol costume belting out Train’s Drops of Jupiter and somehow, his on-air partner of more than 20 years didn’t guess it was him from her position on the judging panel.

“This is the worst you can get, I’m never living this down….this is so embarrassing,” judge Jackie O said after Kyle took his mask off.

The embarrassment wasn't hers alone though, as Kyle pointed out that he knows every single member of the judging panel, and none of them picked it was him. Other guesses included Russell Crowe, Anthony LaPaglia and Guy Pearce.

Jackie O couldn’t believe she’d been fooled so easily. “When you were singing, there was a flash of you in my mind, but then I was like ‘No.’ You never even let on once. We work together every morning, I’ve been telling you about Masked Singer every day. All the while, you knew you were gonna be on it!”

Later in the episode, contestant Atlantis was unveiled as none other than US soul singer Macy Gray, best-known for global smash hit I Try.

With one of the most recognisable voices in music history, it was slightly surreal to hear the judges’ guesses after her rendition of the Elle King song Exes and Ohs. She was instantly recognisable from the very first note – but the judges guessed Delta Goodrem, Rhianna and Noni Hazelhurst.
