The peacock performed once again during the latest episode of The Masked Singer and he provided some fairly specific clues — and our guess is that it’s Donny Osmond behind the mask.
For one, he revealed that he weighed 176 pounds, which happens to be Osmond’s weight. He also talked about how it was odd to perform behind a mask, as he’s often approached by people who want to talk to him.
Then there was the rainbow flag appeared to confuse the judges. In 2008, Osmond came out in support of the LGBTQ community. He admitted at the time that he knew many gay people and some of them were his best friends.
But there was also another reason why the rainbow-colored flag makes sense — and it was to do with that wig.
In 1992, Donny Osmond starred in Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat, with which he toured North America. He also featured in a 1999 direct-to-video adaptation of the Andrew Lloyd Webber musical.
Joseph’s coat in the musical was, of course, rainbow colored, and, well, you might recognize that wig from somewhere.
The clue regards jail was also relevant here, as in the musical Joseph, a slave, is thrown in jail by his owner, Egyptian tycoon Potiphar.
As for the clues provided on YouTube prior to tonight’s episode, the peacock held some whales in his hands. It’s possible that this could be in regards to Wales, as Donny Osmond’s ancestors have been previously been traced to a town in the country called Merthyr Tydfil., but he also headlined a show on BBC Wales, according to Gold Derby.
Previous clues also line up with Donny Osmond being behind the mask. For one, his height appears to match with 5’9, and he clearly loves the spotlight as mentioned by the peacock.
Osmond actually first appeared on The Andy Williams show when he was just five years old, so he has been active for a long time. During one of the clues, he mentioned that it was the viewers’ moms who had posters of him on their walls.
Donny was a so-called heartthrob in the 1970s, so that also matches up. The Michael Jackson connection could be their long-term friendship. Donny spoke out about the last words he said to the king of pop before he passed away in an interview from 2015.
The magic and showtime connection could be Las Vegas, as he’s actually hosting his own show called Donny and Marie in Vegas, and he’s done so for 11 years.
The Masked Singer airs Wednesdays at 9/8c on FOX.
