‘The Masked Singer’ Recap: Christmas Singalong Features Brand-New Performances
The competition may be over on The Masked Singer Season 6, but the show returned on Wednesday night for a Christmas Singalong. The two-hour holiday special featured brand-new performances from this season’s contestants, as well as funny moments from the judges.
This season’s runner-up Bull (Todrick Hall) debuted an exclusive holiday music video for an original song, while the Season 6 contestants teamed up for a group performance of a Christmas classic. The show ended with this season’s winner, Queen of Hearts (Jewel), singing her song “Hands” with son Kase.
The episode also included past performances from seasons past, such as Season 4 winner Sun (Leann Rimes)singing “Rockin’ Around the Christmas Tree” and Season 2 winner Fox (Wayne Brady) singing “This Christmas.” There was also a powerhouse performance of “Total Eclipse of the Heart” from Christmas Tree herself, Ana Gasteyer.
‘The Masked Singer’ Bull Premieres Holiday Music Video
During Wednesday night’s special, Todrick Hall donned his Bull costume to perform a holiday music video to an original song tailor-made for Season 6 of the show. The star was backed up by dancers and Christmas decorations as he performed the tune.
“Christmas cookies, nothing tastes better / Need a little spice, let me call up Pepper,” he sang, shouting out Natasha Bedingfield’s character. “Girl, I don’t sled, I sleigh / Santa’s on his way.”
The special also featured a group performance from several contestants from Season 6, who sang “Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer” without their masks on. The performance included Banana Split (Katharine McPhee and David Foster), Jester (Johnny Rotten), and Mother Nature (Vivica A. Fox).
Skunk, aka Faith Evans, Sings ‘Santa Baby’
One of the night’s all-new performances came from this season’s contestant Skunk, aka Faith Evans, who covered “Santa Baby,” originally sung by Eartha Kitt. It was the perfect sultry song for Evans, who described her Skunk costume as “sexy.”
Fake snow fell on the stage as Skunk performed. She was surrounded by dancers in all-white outfits, as well as backup singers with Santa hats. The show included the lyrics on screen so viewers at home could sing along — but really, who would want to cover up that voice?
Wednesday’s special also featured a new holiday performance from Mallard, aka Duck Dynasty‘s Willie Robertson. He performed “Hairy Christmas,” the song he originally sang with Luke Bryan. He even threw in the perfect dad joke by saying it was time to “duck the halls.”
Speaking of dad jokes, the show aired a funny montage of Masked Singer judge Robin Thicke’s love of puns. Examples included telling the Snow Owls that he knew “exactly who this is,” and telling Frog to “frog-et about it.” We can’t wait to find out what he comes up with next season.
