In what some have described as the “creepiest costume ever” and others the “most beautiful,” the Flower brings her grace and raw talent to The Masked Singer. So what if its the only costume with human facial features? This “legend” can SANG! But who’s under the mask?
Here are the clues and predictions for the Flower so far!
Clues On The Masked Singer
From the “Super Sneak Peek,” we saw “314” behind the Flower. She also gave a few hints about what was to come when the season started.
In the clues before her first performance, the Flower says she “blossoms in every field” she plants herself in. The clues show her working in a kitchen. She says she’s done just about everything, from cooking to clothing to crafts. It shows a degree from “Temple U” and a rainbow flag on the wall. Her whole life, she’s done everything to the nines, talking about how she even wears makeup and heels to the store. The Flower claims she “sowed the seeds of this empire with [her] bare hands.” She’s ready to have fun and be free though. The Flower mentions both “Vision of Love” and “What’s Love Got To Do With It?” and calls herself a “legend.” What makes her the Flower is that she’s “beautiful” and “smells so good.”
Popular Guesses for the Flower
Jenny McCarthy guessed Taraji P Henson was the Flower. Nicole threw out Mariah Carey, which Nick Cannon joked about. Then, she guessed Patti LaBelle. Robin predicted Jennifer Hudson or Jessie J. Ken thought it was Bjork. The most popular guesses we’re seeing online are Patti LaBelle, Tina Turner, Wanda Sykes, and Fantasia.
Our Prediction & Possible Spoilers
After doing our research, it was pretty easy to get this down to two options. The Flower had to be either Tina Turner or our guess…Patti LaBelle! Nicole even knew it instantly from the first time she heard her sing. And people online almost unanimously recognized her voice too!
First of all, the mentions of other diva hits won’t throw us off again! Gladys Knight did the same thing as the Bee last season. All the cooking hints allude to Patti’s love of cooking though. She even had a show on the Cooking Channel called Patti LaBelle’s Place. Her mention of an “empire” can be explained too, since she was in an episode of the TV show, Empire. The biggest giveaway was the “Temple U” degree, because Patti has an honorary doctorate from Temple University. And the rainbow flag next to it is homage to her appreciation for the LGBTQ community and its support of her. The inclusion of Mariah Carey’s song could also reference the fact that Patti is her godmother. And the “314” from the “Super Sneak Peek”? That’s a reference to her famous sweet potato PIES, since 3.14 is Pi.
