The Masked Singer has had some incredible celebrity contestants throughout its run, but there are some famous faces who haven’t graced the stage yet.
The Masked Singer has featured almost everyone, from JoJo Siwa to Gladys Knight, but there are still plenty of stars who would do well on the show. Some celebs haven’t made their way onto the series yet. The singing competition show is gearing up for its eighth season, and fans can’t wait to see which famous faces are hiding behind the new costumes. So far, fans have gotten a look at Avocado, Bride, Venus Fly Trap, and Sir Bugaboo. The trailer also teased some new costumes, including a harp design, and what appears to be a mummy or sarcophagus.
The Masked Singer season 8 is said to have more contestants than ever before, and more celebrity guests too. Season 1 finalist Donny Osmond made an appearance in the trailer, along with Miss Piggy from The Muppets, and series regular, Joel McHale. Panelists Robin Thicke, Jenny McCarthy, Ken Jeong, and Nicole Scherzinger are returning, in addition to host, Nick Cannon. The panelists and host have appeared on the series since season 1 aired in 2019.
During the last installment, featured stars included reggae singer Shaggy and singer Teyana Taylor, who won the season. She was victorious just months after her husband Iman Shumpert won Dancing With the Stars with his partner, Danielle Karagach. Other seasons have seen stars like Bella Thorne, Dionne Warwick, Nick Lachey, and Lil Wayne grace the stage. While there have been an abundance of celebrities on the show in the past, there are still so many others who would add serious entertainment value to the show.
Idina Menzel & Kristin Chenoweth Would Dazzle On The Masked Singer
The only downside of this dynamic duo competing on The Masked Singer would be how quickly panelists would guess their identities, based on their unmistakable voices. Broadway stars are no strangers to the show, and last season, Dream Girls icon Jennifer Holliday performed as Miss Teddy. If the first Elphaba and Glinda from Wicked appeared on the series, Broadway fans would never forget it.
The Jersey Shore Cast Would Be Fun The Masked Singer Additions
While The Masked Singer has seen some incredible voices throughout the season, contestants don’t have to be trained singers to appear on the show… just ask Wendy Williams. Jersey Shore fans loved seeing Vinny Guadagnino on The Masked Dancer, but any of the cast members would do well on the series. Maybe they could all team up together, and wear the biggest group costume the show’s ever seen.
Darren Criss Would Add Spice To The Masked Singer
It’s hard to believe, in light of all the talent on Glee, that none of the main stars have been on The Masked Singer. Cheyenne Jackson, who guest starred on the show a few times, was a finalist during season 7, and Darren himself has been guessed by panelists in the past. Lea Michele may be busy with her Funny Girl debut, but Darren would be an excellent The Masked Singer performer.
Tony Danza Would Sizzle On The Masked Singer
The best part about The Masked Singer is the fact that it appeals to all generations. Fans who were cheering on JoJo Siwa wouldn’t really have any sense of the Who’s The Boss alum’s identity, but the ones who were rooting for Paul Anka and Donny Osmond would. The actor has released two albums in his career, and could definitely hold his own on the show.
A Disney Princess Could Make An Appearance On The Masked Singer
A sure way to get Disney fans watching the show would be to feature one of the voices of the iconic princesses. Paige O’Hara, who voiced Belle in 1991’s Beauty and the Beast, would be incredible, but luckily there are a plethora of women who could fill the role. 21-year-old Auli’i Cravalho, the voice of Moana, would also wow The Masked Singer panelists and fans with her incredible vocals.
Gloria Gaynor Would Be A Great Choice For The Masked Singer
Another iconic performer that The Masked Singer panelists have guessed countless times is Gloria Gaynor. The disco-era singer would do a good job on the show, but might have to work hard to disguise her famous voice. While the younger fans may not have been alive during her debut, there isn’t a person in the studio audience who wouldn’t know her 1978 hit, “I Will Survive.” Gloria’s a performer that fans of all ages would enjoy seeing on the series.
The Masked Singer season 8 premieres Wednesday, September 21 at 8 p.m. EDT on FOX.
