‘The Masked Singer’ Reveals the Star Under the Mask is Bret Michales, who is a rocker. The ‘Masked Singer’ is an American reality singing competition featuring celebrities in head-to-toe costumes and face masks that conceal their identities from other contestants, panelists, and an audience. After they perform covers of famous songs, the panelists and audience vote for their favorite performance, and the celebrity with the fewest votes are eliminated from the competition, taking off their mask and revealing their identity.
The third season of ‘The Masked Singer’ premiered on February 2, 2020; During the season, eighteen celebrities will compete anonymously in new full-bodied costumes and masks. Before each performance, a video package will tease clues to their identity with the personality narrating aspects of their biography in a disguised voice: season 3, Episode 13 of “The Masked Singer,” which aired April 22 on Fox.
Rocker Bret Michaels was the latest celebrity to revealed on “The Masked Singer,” and it happened to coincide with the 10th anniversary of the Poison frontman’s brain hemorrhage that left him in intensive care for nearly two weeks. Michaels, who performed as the Banana on “Masked Singer,” marveled what he called “the irony, not knowing that these two dates would ever line up on any level, but it is April 22. The song selection I chose came down to two songs, and I went with ‘Knocking on Heaven’s Door’ to sing tonight.
Exactly as this show aired is when I was in the emergency room, in the operating room, they were operating on my brain. And I’m singing that song. Life is ironic. A moment of surrealness tonight, for sure.” Michaels, whose lengthy unscripted resume includes “Rock of Love” and “Celebrity Apprentice,” said he was game for “Masked Singer” after watching the first two seasons with his kids — and also by himself. As the Banana, Michaels performed “Knocking’On Heaven’s Door,” by Bob Dylan, on Wednesday night’s episode, and he also sat behind a grand piano.
Michaels had been on tour in Oklahoma when the coronavirus shut everything down — and he noted that as a person with type one diabetes, he’s in the highest risk category. “If I could leave one note, it’s to let everyone know two things: We’re, all of us, in this together, to get healthy again,” he said. “But number two, a big thank you to all of our frontline first responders and fighters who are out there keeping us as safe as they can.”
Meanwhile, Michaels’ “Masked Singer” appearance comes as he gets ready to release his first book, “Bret Michaels: Auto-Scrap-Ography,” on May 12. The book is a mix of audio and video elements, in addition to photos and print stories. “I travel from birth to ‘Masked Singer’ to everything,” he said. “I read the whole thing, and then you still have images of each chapter, and it has moving images. The book is heartfelt, truly handwritten by me. I’ve gone through a lot of things in my life, but it stays positive. It will be a good fun summer read about facing adversity and overcoming everything from music to life to diabetes.”
Besides Michaels, so far this season, Lil Wayne, Drew Carey, Chaka Khan, Tony Hawk, Dionne Warwick, Tom Bergeron, Sarah Palin, Bella Thorne, JoJo Siwa, Rob Gronkowski, and Jordyn Woods have all been reveale. For more entertainment news click here.
