We saw a photo of the White House which gave panelists a hint that Ice Cube may have a political background. Jeong said the Ice Cube, first of all was tall and slim just like an ice cube
In the premiere episode of ‘The Masked Dancer,’ premiered on December 27, 2020, we saw unidentified celebrities from group A dressed up as Tulip, Cricket, Disco Ball, Exotic Bird and Hammerhead taking over the stage with their respective performances. Unfortunately, Disco Ball had to head home when he got the least votes out of all. It was later revealed that the celebrity under the mask of Disco Ball was none other than the legendary hip-hop artist Ice-T.
In the group B premiere episode of ‘The Masked Dancer,’ we saw an unidentified celebrity dressed up as the uber-cool Ice Cube. The masked celebrity landed on stage all decked up with a huge mask of an ice cube with a beanie on the top. He teamed up his cool outfit of denim and a tee with heavy chains signalling he might be a hip-hop artist.
What are the clues for Ice Cube?
Before Ice Cube enthralled the panelists and the audience with his stellar performance on the postmodern jukebox version of Lady Gaga’s ‘Bad Romance,’ we saw a montage of the celebrity where we got the major clues about who the person can be under the huge mask. The video started with Ice Cube saying, “Welcome to chill paradise. I may be successful now but the road to success was very slippery.” We also saw a photo of the White House which gave panelists a hint that Ice Cube may have a political background. In the montage, we also saw a periodic element chart which also led to a little confusion amongst the panelists.
What did the panelists guess?
The panelists on FOX’s brand new show include Ken Jeong, from ‘The Masked Singer’, world-famous choreographer Paula Abdul, Brian Austin Green, actor and former “Giraffe” Mask on ‘The Masked Singer’ and actress and singer Ashley Tisdale. After getting mesmerised with the performance of the Ice Cube, it was time for all the four panelists to make their guesses. Speaking on the same, Jeong said the Ice Cube, first of all, was tall and slim just like an ice cube. When it came to ‘Word Up,’ Ice Cube went for “’90s Icon.” Pointing out the White House picture shown in the montage, he said the masked celebrity might have a career in politics and he might be Bill Nye.
Brian, on the other hand, said ice Cube might not be a trained dancer but definitely an entertainer adding that he might be a comedian but definitely older. According to him, Ice Cube might be a comedian and a political commentator Bill Maher. Trying to solve the mystery behind the mask, Paula pointed out Ice Cube might be someone important from politics but definitely older. In the end, she went with Anderson Cooper. Joining all the dots, Ashley shared the mutual thoughts about Ice Cube being old joking that he is certainly not a Tik-Tok star.
How did the Internet react?
The Internet was quick to react to Ice Cube’s appearance on the show. Speaking on the same one user said, “#masked dancer #he ice cube #Bill Bye the science guy- born wash DC, father in prisoner of war camp, mother a code breaker.” Another said, “Watching the masked dancer with my mom and the guy is wearing an ice cube costume so they were calling him ice cube and my mom thought ice cube was IN the costume.” One guessed, “Ice cube Bill Nye for sure. From Washington. Mom worked as decoder or something during the war. Dad was a captured soldier pow. All that science stuff. 90’s icon. That height. Bill Nye!”
