Well known dutch
While the performance wasn’t necessarily bizarre, the reveal was. All of Germany and the Netherlands were shocked when it was learned that none other than Sylvie Meis was in the Alpaca costume. The comedian Bülent Ceylan was the only one who was quite certain that it was not a German, but a Dutch woman in costume. And those little feet, they can only belong to one person: our own Syl. She appreciated his participation, which she even managed to hide from her own son Damián.
Remove the mask prematurely
Not just in the Netherlands The masked singer a great success, also in the United States, the program manages to attract millions of viewers. In the most recent episode, however, something happened that probably didn’t please the creators very much. One participant, without being voted on, revealed his true identity. The Gremlin decided that was enough. Shortly after her performance, the judges were allowed to guess who was in the costume, but the answer came prematurely. “I want to take this mask off now,” the monster said. No one other than actor Micky Rourke turned out to be in the costume. His statement? “It’s way too hot.”
Also in Thailand they run away with The masked singer. However, one performance sparked a real protest online among viewers – and in particular the reveal. Or rather: its absence.
The first season did not go as planned. A three-hour season finale was announced after four months and the presenter promised all remaining contestants would expose themselves. But there was one more left at the end, the popular Durian. The presenter suddenly cut the program without exposing Durian. “Viewers across the country are now anxious to know who you really are,” host Kan Kantathavorn said. “We’ll see the face behind Durian next week, as the rules only allow you to reveal one mask per week.”
It caused a lot of boos and angry jury members and a lot of criticism on social media. The broadcaster subsequently announced that it was not possible to continue the broadcast due to lack of time and technical errors. A week later he was revealed and turned out to be Itsara Kidnitchee, singer of a popular group. His online performances were also a big success. For example, her rendition of Adeles “Set Fire To The Rain” managed to get 150 million views on YouTube.
Something happened to our neighbors to the south that melted many Flemish hearts. Where we have Loretta Schrijver as a panel member, they were successful in getting Karen Damen. This is why they also managed to involve another former member of K3. The mermaid costume turned out to be none other than Kathleen Aerts, who has lived in South Africa for years. It got Karen on stage when she saw her former best friend from K3.
The Dutch version also had an emotional revelation. For example, Ernst Daniël Smid turned out to be in the Yeti costume. The singer has struggled with Parkinson’s for some time and said he was delighted to be allowed to participate. He told it all on RTL Boulevard.
