There’s a chill in the air, leaves litter the ground, and houses up and down on your street are decked out with ghouls, goblins and all manner of grim tidings.
Yes, Halloween is fast approaching, and The Masked Singer didn’t waste the opportunity to jump on board.
The latest episode on Wednesday night (Oct. 25) had a Harry Potter theme, a neat tie-in with the annual celebration of all things spooky.
Taking the stage was Tiki, singing “Magic” by Pilot; Sea Queen performed “Love Potion No. 9” by the Searchers; Husky hit “Super Freak” by the late Rick James; and Hawk swooped in with “Every Little Thing She Does Is Magic,” by The Police.
The two celebrities with the lowest number of votes would enter the knockout. Step on up Hawk and Tiki, as they went head-to-head on Lady Gaga’s “Monster.”
After winning the battle of the birds last week, pipping Royal Hen, Hawk finally had his feathers clipped.
Under the fancy costume was Tyler Posey, the Teen Wolf actor and musician. It’s not Posey’s first time rocking out; he has worked with Maryland punk-pop band All Time Low’s Jack Barakat, performed with State Champs, and made a film with Tom DeLonge, guitarist and vocalist with Blink-182.
“Every performance you brought it, you got the crowd hyped up you electrified us,” enthused judge Robin Thicke, after the mask came off.
So why enter the circus that is The Masked Singer? “I love performing,” Posey explained, “and I just wanted to have a chance to do this. I’m also a little competitive. I’m a little hurt. But it’s OK. The Hawk forgives.” Forgives and forgets, apparently. “Nah, I’m just happy to be here,” he continued.
Posey as Hawk follows the exit door after Billie Jean King as Royal Hen, Michael Rapaport as Pickle, Tom Sandoval as Diver, Anthony Anderson as Rubber Ducky and Demi Lovato as Anonymouse as season 10’s unmasked celebrities.
Thicke, Nicole Scherzinger, Ken Jeong and Jenny McCarthy return as judges for the latest season, Fox’s kooky series which airs Wednesdays at 8 p.m.
