In devastating news for healthy snack aficionados across the nation, Popcorn on The Masked Singer Australia has sadly been unveiled, nay, popped. But at long last we finally know who was singing behind those big, buttered-up pupils and it turns out, we called it: Popcorn was in fact Sam Sparro!
Popcorn delivered a tear jerking rendition of Judy Garland‘s ‘Somewhere Over The Rainbow’, a performance that had Chrissie Swan in bits because it’s her favourite song. There wasn’t a dry eye in the studio, if the studio were my bedroom.
The guesses for this one were surprisingly normal, unlike all the other guesses on The Masked Singer which, to date, have been deliciously random. But Mel B was on the money, correctly guessed Popcorn was Sam Sparro. And by Jove, was she listing reasons like the rent was due.
The rest of the panel all guessed male, American chanteurs: Hughesy guessed Bruno Mars, Abbie Chatfield guessed Ne-Yo and Chrissie Swan was convinced it was will.i.am.
The chaos when Popcorn lifted off his ginormous corny hat and the judges realised Mel B was right will live in my mind rent free. The sheer jubilation! The drama! J’adore.
