It’s episode eight of The Masked Singer Australia 2023 and Orca has made her final splash!
During the episode, the masks paid tribute to Heroes, Legends and Icons and even though her performance of Fleetwood Mac’s Dreams wowed, the studio audience voted the sea mammal as the mask whose identity would be revealed.
The judges were conflicted by who they thought was under the amazing costume including guesses of Daryl Hannah, a member of the Dixie Chicks, Kate DeAraugo and Neighbours’ brand-new addition, Mischa Barton.
But alas, Sheppard band member, Amy Sheppard was the one unveiled!
After her reveal, guessing panellist Chrissie Swan joked that it must feel like “cheating on your bandmates”.
“It does a bit!” Amy said. “[But] I’ve been doing my solo country music project. I’m still doing Sheppard, and that’s still going, we’re about to release our fourth album. But I decided that I wanted to discover who I was as an artist outside the band. So, this has been a great platform for me to do that.”
The Other Performances
Clues: Last time the panel realised I’m not a friendly face at your local. I’ll be singing my hero song tonight and you’ll be seeing stars in my performance!
Growing up Big Red wasn’t easy, so many things to feel guilty about but I always had my music, that’s no revelation! You know, I’ve really got the taste for this type of work. Not cleaning so much, but the bouncing business. It’s a real workout! Like anyone I’ve got me dreams but, I guess, one day the bubble will pop. In this job, you’ve got to be consistent and persistent. Nothing’s impossible. Don’t give up, even when things look dark, because you want to be the last one standing.
Song: Sky Full of Stars by Coldplay
Guesses: Firass Dirani, Jay Sean, Mick Hucknall, James Arthur
Clues: Last time I had to spell it out… tonight, the legendary Piano Man leads me down the yellow brick road for my performance.
As a Snow Fox, childhood is different. You grow up quick, no time to rest. You never know which door will open up next. Like this masquerade, you never know. Of course, the path to where you’re headed is never clear, there are hurdles, but don’t let it leave a sour taste in your mouth. I never do. Then again, spice in my mouth helped me to take on my biggest challenge. Then I could tell people what I really, really want. But, right now, I’m ready to cook up something special.
Song: Goodbye Yellow Brick Road by Elton John
Guesses: Jessie J, Celine Dion, Dami Im, Samantha Jade
Clues: I promised and delivered on my last performance, tonight a legend has opened up heaven’s doors. I can’t wait to take you to the other side.
When you do what I do, it’s easy to get down on yourself but the simple things bring me back into the light. No, not caffeine! Can I think of three adjectives to describe myself? No, actually I can’t. But you can’t worry about what people say about you, that’s their problem. What does matter is love. That’s all. We all need to be loved.
Song: Knockin’ On Heaven’s Door by Bob Dylan
Guesses: Craig David, Olly Murs, Jarryd James, Ne-Yo
Clues: There I went again last performance leaving the panel udderly delighted! Tonight, this Cow Girl’s going for iconic so you better get ready to just dance!
As a Cow Girl, I have my secrets. Let me warn you that I’m no dairy cow but, if I was, my milk would be top fuel! I don’t mean to big-note myself but I worked with some of the biggest names in entertainment… and some of the shortest. You know, this really is a tough business. Even as a Cow Girl, people are fascinated with my body parts, or so a little bird told me. I got you, babe! Of course, in the end, you’ve just got to fight or face ruin.
Song: Just Dance by Lady Gaga
Guesses: Alyssa Milano, Melissa McCarthy, Conchita Wurst, Kristen Stewart
The Masked Singer Australia continues Monday at 7.30pm on 10 And 10 Play.
