Who is Rockhopper on The Masked Singer?
In the semi-final, Rockhopper was unmasked as Destiny’s Child star Michelle Williams.
After being unmasked, Michelle said of the show: “I love music and to be able to cover some of my favorite songs without judgment was awesome. I wanted to challenge myself and also how much FUN I knew it would be.
“I was getting so much love from the panel and audience and it made me so anxious to reveal who I am. I was enjoying them throwing out all of these other amazing names as well.”
In their opening performance, Rockhopper sang Higher Love by Kygo & Whitney Houston. In week 2, Rockhopper performed Amy Winehouse’s Love Is A Losing Game. In Week 3, Rockhopper performed Edge Of Midnight by Miley Cyrus while week four saw them singing Tina Turner’s We Don’t Need Another Hero. For the semi-final, they performed Harry Styles’ Adore You and Loving You by Minnie Riperton.
In their clue packages, Rockhopper was seen in a circus tent and described themselves as a “entertainer” who “loves to talk”. There were also references to jumping, famous Williams, Broadway and being behind bars.
Giving the panel cryptic clues, Rockhopper shared: “This penguin made headlines by being the first” and “My name has been up on lights on more than one type of Billboard”.
In week 2, Rockhopper offered up two lies and a truth: “I am big fan of a weekend meal delivered in the evening”, “Sporting events are where I feel right at home”, “Even though it’s cold I still know how to slay”.
Guesses from the panel about Rockhopper’s identity included Jamelia, Fergie and Nicole Scherzinger.
But viewers at home correctly named Michelle Williams as being under the mask.
One fan who had done some detective work tweeted: “I’m saying Rockhopper is Michelle Williams. Had XLVII (47) on the back of their costume – Destiny’s Child performed at the 47th Super Bowl
“The other Michelle Williams (actress) was in the Greatest Showman!”
Another agreed: “Rockhopper is Michelle Williams, surely?! #MaskedSingerUK” and a third added: “#MaskedSinger #rockhopper is Michelle Williams of Destiny’s Child fame.”
