'The Masked Singer': Frog called 'garbage' by fans after he enters finale with Night Angel and Turtle
The Frog has moved on to the finals on 'The Masked Singer' and will be competing against the Night Angel and Turtle, next week.
He's been a constant favorite with the judges and the audience who have been up and dancing till they drop, while the Frog is up on stage. He does bust some mean dance moves, week after week, admittedly trying to make up for the lack of his singing abilities. The current season has seen a lot of masked celebrities with great singing voices go home (read: Chaka Khan, Jackie Evancho, Hunter Hayes) and Frog's presence in the finale has not gone down well with the audiences at home. Each week there are some harsh opinions about the Frog advancing further in the competition and this week, it was no different. Some of the fans termed him "garbage" after tonight's performance.
Before he took to the stage tonight, a special clue package video played and had a lot of football references as well as hair rollers. The Frog mentioned that he wants the winner's trophy more than anything he's ever wanted in his life. He also mentioned that he would take the trophy everywhere he went after he wins it - be it on tour or to the massage parlor.
For his performance, he chose to sing 'Hip Hip Hooray' by hip-hop trio, Naughty By Nature. He looked really cool while jumping up and down the stage in his orange sneakers during the performance which was also backed by dancers performing in amphibian masks around him.
After his performance, judge Jenny McCarthy exclaimed that his performance was "awesome" and that she had no doubt that he was going to the finale while Nicole Scherzinger declared "we might be looking at season 3 winner of the masked singer". The Frog revealed that he wants to win the trophy for his little tadpole who wishes to put up the trophy in her bedroom which triggered a resounding "aww" in the studio.
He later moved on closer to the judges' table so that they could take a closer look at him and try to guess his identity. The clue that stood out was a 'MOM' brooch on his lapel. For the guesses, McCarthy went with Chance the Rapper's whereas Jay Pharoah admitted to picking up Omarion vibes. He later changed his guess stating: "But I don't think Omarion can rap like that. But someone close to Omarion could be that and I am picking up on that height. I grew up with you. You are Bow Wow," added Pharoah. Ken Jeong too admitted to picking up B2K vibes and guessed it is Lil Fizz from the now dysfunctional band, under the mask.
Frog is now in the finals and audiences on Twitter had a lot to say about it. "The frog is straight garbage, it’s called the masked SINGER, not the masked rapper," wrote a fan.
While another at-home audience member wrote, "I thought this was “masked singer” not “masked rapper” I’m beginning to think this is rigged because Frog definitely isn’t the best, I can barely understand him."
Another one tweeted, "I just wanna know what morons vote for this masked singer stuff...the frog is really staying on this show???? no thanks."
"Hey, the masked singer y’all are becoming one of the WORST shows like sorry but there’s no way someone who barely sings as the frog could POSSIBLY make it this far in the competition," read another tweet.
While another tweeted, "Oh for f*** sakes. How many passes is the Frog going to get? Same performance, same genre of music? Ugh. This is called the masked Singer, not Dancer or Entertainer. Geez."
'The Masked Singer' returns with the finale episode next Wednesday night only on FOX.
