'The Masked Singer' Season 2: Fans speculate Chris Daughtry to be the face under Rottweiler mask
The judges might be far off with their guesses but fans think they have it all figured out, based on two 'major clues.'
'The Masked Singer' Season 2 premiered on September 25 and while the judges were torn apart as to who might be under the Rottweiler's mask, fans think they have that answer solved.
The series might have premiered just a week ago, but we already have a frontrunner. After watching the first batch of contestants - Egg, Butterfly, Ladybug, Ice Cream, Rottweiler, Tree, Thingamajig, Skeleton - perform for the judging panel and audience on the night, the judges were immediately hooked to one masked singer who is clearly a professional musician.
Performing his rendition of "Maneater" by Hall & Oates, the Rottweiler received rave reviews from the judges, especially Nicole Scherzinger who couldn't stop talking about how his rendition was the best she had heard in the entire show.
While they were hooked to the Rottweiler's performance, the judges found it really hard to figure out the clues and ended up speculating that it might be either Brian Littrell from the Backstreet Boys, JC Chasez from NSYNC, Nick Lachey of 98 Degrees or Bruno Mars under the mask.
Though the judges might be far off from their guesses, fans think they have it all figured out, based on two major clues. Taking to Twitter, fans revealed that the singer underneath the Rottweiler mask is none other than Chris Daughtry.
The first clue that fans claim gives it away is the blue rose on the shelf. It represents the blue rose Chris got tattooed and gave a deep explanation for it on Instagram. The second one is when he said "It's not over," which is also a title to one of his songs. The third clue that gives it away is when Rottweiler said he rose to fame overnight. Chris was on American Idol, and he rose to fame overnight after he placed fourth in Season 5.
Post the episode, fans took to Twitter and said, "Been saying it and now I've heard him sing and watch how he moves, I'm 200% sure that's Chris Daughtry!"
A fan wrote, "It’s Chris Daughtry. The record said “live” he performed with live on American idol and he also has a blue rose tattoo." Adding to that another said, "Def @CHRIS_Daughtry I'm a big fan and I would know his voice anywhere. Big clue is 'it's not over'"
"It's Chris Daughtry. The voice gave it away. No one else can sing the way he does. Plus all the clues fit," said a fan. While another added, "I have always wanted to be on one of those judges’ panels. I would have stood up and shouted: @CHRIS_Daughtry you can take off that mask right now cuz you can ‘t fool an old dog with this new trick!!!!!"
