The Masked Singer switched things up for its latest episode. Instead of eliminating one of the remaining masked singers in the competition, the show aired a special sing-along episode. In the episode, performances from the remaining seven competitors — Turtle, Frog, Astronaut, Kitty, Banana, Night Angel and Rhino — were shown along with the lyrics posted onscreen so that viewers could sing along with the tracks. They also included some brand-new clues about the remaining competitors so fans can still try to figure out their identities. Naturally, since The Masked Singer enjoys an incredibly large fanbase, viewers had plenty to say about this new sing-along episode.
The Masked Singer's sing-along episode comes a week after the show saw yet another competitor eliminated from the competition. On April 8, the Kangaroo was ultimately eliminated and revealed to have been Kylie Jenner's former BFF Jordyn Woods. After she was eliminated from the FOX series, Woods spoke with Entertainment Tonight, where she addressed the possibility of releasing some music in the future. According to the former reality star, she plans on heading into the studio as soon as she is able to.
"I have not been able to get to the studio. But as soon as everything clears up and we can leave again and I can get to the studio, that is as soon as you guys will get [an album]," she told ET. "Hopefully before the end of 2020. And I'm talking, like, as soon as possible." While Woods may not be in the competition anymore, she's certainly still all about the music. Of course, fans of The Masked Singer were just as passionate about the music in this new sing-along format. But, they weren't necessarily pleased to find out that no one was going to be unmasked at the end of the episode.
A Waste Of Time?
This sing along show is so dumb. I want to see a new episode, not a repeat of what I've already seen. Why are you wasting my time? #TheMaskedSinger— Stephanie Mattox (@stef_kins) April 16, 2020
For fans who were hoping to see another celebrity unmasked on The Masked Singer, they turned on the show only to be disappointed. One fan even wrote on Twitter to ask why the show was "wasting my time."
Not Here For A Sing-Along
Yep, fans were definitely not on board with The Masked Singer's sing-along episode, and they were not afraid to say so on social media.
What Is This?
Many were simply confused by the fact that the show was not going to air another elimination.
This fan's reaction to the news that The Masked Singer wasn't going to unmask anyone is likely how many other fans felt, as well.
Just Wanted A New Unmasking
Fans were clearly eager to see a brand-new episode of the FOX series, with some brand-new performances to boot. But, the show had other plans.
One fan was so confused by the sing-along episode airing that they even wondered whether the show was playing a belated April Fool's Day joke on them.
'Groundhog Day' Vibes
Since The Masked Singer showcased performances that fans had already seen, one fan joked about the move by posting a screenshot of Bill Murray in Groundhog Day. So, it's clear that fans across the board weren't exactly ready to have a sing-along party.
