'The Masked Singer': Frank Ocean or Billy Porter, who is the celebrity under the beautiful Mushroom mask?
'The Masked Singer' Season 4 has managed to get some really talented celebrities on the show's lineup. This is probably the most entertaining group from all the past seasons, and mind you Group D is yet to perform on the show. All participating celebrities this season combined have 281 million records worldwide, appeared in more than 5,120 episodes of television and 204 films, appeared in five Super Bowls, have four stars on the Hollywood Walk of Fame, and one of Time magazine’s 100 Most Influential People. Audiences have witnessed some big beautiful voices this season, for example, The Seahorse, Serpent, The Sun, and The Monster, all of whom can sing and are probably one of the biggest music artistes out there. The show has seen Chaka Khan, La Toya Jackson, Lil Wayne, Wayne Brady, and Donny Osmond participating in previous seasons, and there's no doubt that this season there might be stars of the same stature.
On Wednesday night's episode of the show, Group C masked celebrities -- Mushroom, Squiggly Monster, Jellyfish, Lips, and Broccoli -- took to the stage, and we feel that the first three are definitely from the music industry or have a musical background. All of them displayed their singing chops, but the Mushroom, as one of the judges said, had one of the most "transcending" performances in the show's history. The song that the Mushroom performed was 'This Woman's Work' by Maxwell, and emoted it in a goosebump-inducing way, making the judges feel connected with each lyric.
"If you want to know who’s behind the mask, you’ll need to figure out who’s under my hats," was one of the first clues about this person, which was revealed on the special sneak-peek episode that aired a week and a half before this season premiered. In the recent episode, in a new clue package video, there were a number of visual clues that stood out: a hat, a man dressed like a mask, a microphone, a watering pale, a rake, a radish, and a cityscape, according to Heavy. After the performance, it was time for the judges to make their guesses and they picked up some 'Hamilton' vibes from the clues. Lin-Manuel Miranda, Anthony Ramos, Donald Glover, Usher, and Frank Ocean were some of the names that came up on the judges' table.
The audiences too took their guesses too and most of them believe it's Billy Porter because the multi-faceted personality truly dons many hats and succeeds at all of it. "Think Mushroom is Billy Porter. He’s everywhere these days!" wrote a fan. "I’m on the Billy Porter train for #MushroomMask! The height and the falsetto match up as well as the Broadway vibes plus he’s been guessed before which is usually common for future contestants," wrote another. "OMG!! The Mushroom!!! my guess is Billy Porter OR Maxwell you ain’t fooling nobody boo!!" read another tweet. A lot of them are also agreeing with Jenny's guess about Mushroom being Frank Ocean. "#TheMaskedSinger I have no clue for Mushroom. I suppose I'll agree with the Frank Ocean guess," read a tweet. "Mushroom = Frank ocean," wrote another. "Mushroom gotta be Frank ocean or Billy porter," read another.
