Reading Time: 2 minutes
The Masked Singer Season 9 hasn’t even premiered yet, and we might already have a frontrunner. The show released an early clip on social media Monday, featuring a contestant called Mustang who delivers a powerhouse performance.
Mustang Performs in The Masked Singer Preview
Mustang’s costume is made to look like a horse, featuring a fiery orange mane and sparkly red accents. In the new Season 9 preview, Mustang performs “Here I Go Again” by the rock band Whitesnake. They’re surrounded by fog and bright lasers.
The song starts out slow, with Mustang showing off a powerful voice that impresses the panelists as the audience cheers. Eventually, things ramp up as Mustang belts out the iconic chorus. They’re joined on stage by various dancers in themed costumes.
Toward the beginning of the performance, panelist Nicole Scherzinger can be heard saying Mustang has a “beautiful voice.” Jenny McCarthy later comments that she has chills from the performance. Scherzinger wonders aloud, “Who is that?!”
The New Season Premieres This Wednesday Night
The Masked Singer Season 9 is set to premiere on Wednesday, February 15, at 8/7c on FOX. All four panelists (Robin Thicke, Jenny McCarthy, Ken Jeong, and Nicole Scherzinger) are returning, as well as host Nick Cannon.
In addition to Mustang, this year’s contestants will include Gargoyle, Dandelion, Fairy, Axolotl, Gnome, Medusa, Jackalope, Doll, Mantis, and Macaw. This season will also feature themed nights, including ABBA Night, New York Night, and ’80s Night.
According to Entertainment Weekly, the show is also introducing a new twist this season, as panelists will be able to save a contestant from elimination with the “Ding Dong Keep It On” Bell. We can’t wait to see how it all goes down when the show returns.
