SPOILER ALERT: Don’t be taught ahead whenever you’ve acquired not watched Season 10, Episode 12 of “The Masked Singer,” “Soundtrack to My Life,” which aired Dec. 13 on Fox.

Oh, oh, proper right here he comes. Watch out boy, he’ll chew you up! Oh, oh, proper right here he comes. John Oates is an Anteater.

Say it isn’t so. John Oates, one half of basically probably the most worthwhile rock duo of all time — Daryl Hall & John Oates — was revealed on Wednesday as a result of the Anteater on “The Masked Singer.” Later, Keyshia Cole was moreover unmasked as a result of the Candelabra.

The Oates look comes at pretty a coincidental second: He and Hall have been inside the data simply these days after a falling out (and Hall’s lawsuit) over Oates’ plan to advertise his share of their three manner partnership.

“I can’t truly talk about it,” Oates knowledgeable Choice remaining week. “I don’t really need to talk about it. It’s not why I’m proper right here. I want to provide consideration to the music and [‘The Masked Singer’]. Points will work itself out and time will inform.”

OK, we get it, he can’t go for that. So, let’s talk about “The Masked Singer” — dressing Oates up as an “Anteater” was clearly a nod to the famed Hall & Oates tune “Maneater.” And however, that obvious clue completely eluded the current’s panelists.

“They knocked me down and tied my arms behind my once more and knowledgeable me I was going to be the Anteater,” Oates quipped. “To be honest with you, as soon as I observed the rendering of the costume, I didn’t truly handle it lots. Nevertheless I form of merely went with the motion.  Then I noticed Anteater/Maneater. It was attention-grabbing that no person else picked up on that on the current.

For Anteater, no person obtained it correct. Nicole Scherzinger thought it was John Mellencamp, whereas Robin Thicke named Jackson Browne. Ken Jeong picked Billy Joel. Jenny McCarthy Wahlberg guessed Steven Van Zandt.

“I was flattered by the comparisons that they had been making,” Oates talked about. “I truly appreciated the reality that that they had been evaluating me to a couple of my favorite singers.

What’s going to happen as soon as I’m merely singing?” he talked about. “What’s the response going to be? That intrigued me and I wanted to do it primarily for that trigger. And as well as, I noticed that it was an unlimited platform. It’s such a worthwhile current. I’m doing a great deal of charity work and points like that for some good organizations. And I assumed, if I can get the phrase out, I can attain a lot of individuals.”

Nonetheless Oates talked about he wasn’t anticipating how robust will probably be to hold out in that costume. “Singing and doing choreography in that crazy swimsuit was truly robust,” he talked about. “You’ve acquired the Males in Black lead you through a darkish backstage corridor the place chances are you’ll’t see an element. They normally put you onto the stage and there’s strobe lights and confetti falling and flashing video screens. It’s crazy and the oldsters screaming, the viewers’s insane. I’m sporting these massive dimension 15 work boots that they wanted to truly strap my ft into. It was it was an issue for sure.”

As for being voted off the current, Oates admitted he was dissatisfied — and blamed jet lag for his remaining effectivity. “It was a superb experience until the very end,” he talked about. “As soon as I had the ultimate episode, I was booked to do a one-off current on the Newport Individuals Pageant. I did a set after which rushed to the airport obtained on the redeye. I went to LA, wanted to stand up early inside the morning to go straight to the television studio to do Masked Singer. And so, I was truly drained.”

As for Candelabra, Nicole Scherzinger obtained this one correct in naming Keyshia Cole, and Robin Thicke named Cole as correctly. Jenny McCarthy Wahlberg talked about it was Brandy and Ken Jeong went with Kelly Rowland.

“They let me choose, as lots as they could, the songs that I was going to sing,” Bach talked about. “Which made me fully happy on account of I obtained to do Elton John, “Magic” by Pilot and Woman Gaga. There was a pair completely different songs that I wanted to sing, nevertheless we couldn’t clear them in time. ‘The Remaining Countdown’ by Europe. I was going to slay you all with that one. I was asking to do some Journey and Led Zeppelin nevertheless these had been pretty arduous to clear.”

The singer with the evening’s least number of votes was Oates as Anteater. The remaining two contestants coping with off in a battle royale (not a “smackdown”!) to search out out who would switch on to the finals, had been Donut and Candelabra. The two contestants sang their very personal deal with Hunter Hayes’ “Wanted.” (Hayes, who beforehand appeared on “The Masked Singer” as Astronaut, was moreover available to sing his tune.)
