LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA: Stakes are frightening high in 'The Masked Singer' Season 8 Thanksgiving Special. Snowstorm was introduced to battle with two new masked singers, Sir Bug a boo and Scarecrow, in the 'Fright Night' episode. Snowstorm once again won the Queen title and moved ahead in the show with already-declared semifinalists Harp and Lambs.

Sir Bug a boo charmed everyone on 'The Masked Singer' with his cat-like green face, wearing a blue jacket, and floral pants. However, the masked singer stalled to gather votes in the Battle Royale round, therefore, got eliminated and unmasked. Well, the most attractive thing about this masked singer was his green 'bow tie', which was also one of the first-slipped clues. As soon as Sir Bug a boo landed on 'The Masked Singer's stage, judges declared him to be the cutest of all the masks. Well, some speculated his tall stature to be coming from a basketball background, therefore, might be a basketball player. Saying that he has "a lot of junk in the trunk," Sir Bug a boo brought a bunch of clues to help the audience as well as panelists connect the dots.

Clues for Sir Bug a boo

The first clue slipped by FOX for this masked singer was a "bow tie." However that wasn't enough, therefore, Sir Bug a boo brought a bunch of other clues to help guess his character. Sir Bug a boo claimed in the clue package, "It may be scaring you but I am used to the spooky side." Indeed, hinting that the celebrity masked singer must have done some scary movie or directed one. He further explained about getting a job about which he never dreamed of. That got the masked singer a "permanent place in the pop culture." Furthermore, the clue package showed a pen and paper, hinting that this masked singer could even be a writer. 

Even though Sir Bug a boo claimed to not be frightened of scary movies but "terrified of the dark." He sang 'Devil with a Blue Dress on' by Mitch Ryder and The Detroit Wheels. As soon as his first song ended, judges started making guesses, claiming the celebrity singer to have a "toned" as well as a "beautiful" voice. Furthermore, some of the panelists claimed the voice to be "familiar." Sir Bug a boo sang his own rendition of 'Somebody's Watching Me' by Rockwell. Sir Bug a boo brought with him a box of clues covered with a red cloth with a spider on it, giving a ghoulish vibe. As the judges removed the red cloth, there was a box containing green slime. Jenny McCarthy put her hand inside the box and found a photo of Nicole Scherzinger in it. This indeed hinted that the masked singer is somehow connected or has worked previously with Nicole. Sir Bug a boo claimed to have jammed with Nicole in the past and they had a great time doing that.


Nicole, who has jammed with a lot of singers, guessed Sir Bug a boo to be Randy Jackson or Lil Red. Jenny connected the green slime clue with Sir Bug a boo's "who you gonna call?" statement, claiming the masked singer to be Ernie Hudson from 'Ghostbuster.' Ken Jeon connected the "pen and paper" clue and claimed the celebrity singer to be a famous writer and director. He guessed Sir Bug a boo to be 'Get Out' and 'Nope' director Jordan Peele. However, these guesses didn't seem to match the right one. Sir Bug a boo got eliminated after the Battle Royale round and unmasked to be 'Who You Gonna Call?' and 'Ghostbuster' them-song singer Ray Erskine Parker Jr. The green slime clue was for her album in 'Ghostbuster II'. Parker is a musician, singer, songwriter, and record producer. Parker has won Grammy for Pop Instrumental Performance and Male R&B Vocal Performance.

Scarecrow was the first one to step out from the show by self-eliminating herself. Then, Sir Bugaboo got eliminated in the 'Fright Night' episode, making Snowstorm go ahead in the semi-finals. 'The Masked Singer' Season 8 Episode 10 will release on November 24 at 8 pm ET on FOX.
