Popcorn Never Tried to Hide Her Massive Voice on ‘The Masked Singer’: ‘We’re Not Here to Fool Anybody’ – Billboard
In two weeks we’ll find out which masquerading crooner will come out on top on the fourth season of The Masked Singer. But on Wednesday night it was time to party, and no one had more fun trying to make it to the finish line than judge’s favorite Popcorn during an intense semifinal showdown. The veteran vocalist made it to the Super Six with nuanced, powerful takes on Harry Styles’ “Falling” and Bryan Adams’ “(Everything I Do) I Do It for You” and a jaw-dropping cover of P!nk’s “What About Us.”
And while it seemed like her New Yawk attitude and major pipes would help click another major career win off Popcorn’s bucket list, even a showstopping take on Tina Turner’s “Better Be Good to Me” that had Ms. Turner’s signature smoky attitude wasn’t enough. Sadly, it was the end of the road on Wednesday’s two-hour, triple-elimination episode. Ken Jeong called the Turner turn a “religious experience,” inspiring guesses that ranged from Turner herself to Bette Midler and The Supremes’ Mary Wilson.
When the final kernel popped and the tub came off, though, it was none other than Taylor Dayne.
