It was a Sunday night in the nineties masked singerwith Judge Jenny McCarthy and the tower all dressed up for the occasion Tragic Kingdom– Yera Gwen Stefani; Host Nick Cannon plays Bobby “The Crab” Brown, as is his prerogative; And the Tag Team present each guide pack with “Whoomp! That’s it!” refrain. We even had girl meets the world Stars Danielle Fishel and NSYNC’s Lance Bass. This made Lance the third *NSYNC member to appear on it masked singerAfter Joey “The Rabbit” Fatone for season one and Chris “The Hummingbird” Kirkpatrick for this season, so now all we need is Justin Timberlake and JC Chasez to complete the set and put everything in sync.
Yes, the 90’s dream was alive masked singerAnd, in general, I love dream themes this season – previous episodes have included Andrew Lloyd Webber Night, TV Theme Song Night, and even Muppets Night. But I found the new look of Season 8, which featured a near-instant double cancellation of each episode, to be more than a nightmare. (Watch my long talk about how this change of format sucked a lot of the fun and suspense out of the series.) This week was no exception, with two really mysterious singers revealed by the end of the hour-long episode. All the judges complained that this was one episode when the three contestants really deserved to stay, and annoying fans on Twitter seemed to agree. But the ’90s dream is sadly shattered for both Walrus and Milkshake.
Jenny actually thought Walrus, who put his own spin on Spin Doctors’ 1992 hit “Two Princes,” was the aforementioned JC Chasez, while her fellow judges speculated that the tusk-y, slightly hoarse warbler might be another heartthrob like Joseph Gordon-Levitt, John Stamos, Mark Paul Gosselaar, Mario Lopez, or Scott Wolf. But only Robin Thicke found out blossom Sitcom star Joey Lawrence was Walrus. (Goo Goo drinks. Sorry, I couldn’t resist.)
“I’ve seen all the different shows you’ve been through in your career, and I remember when I released a song, I was like, ‘Wow, I want to get a video and get my song’ [be like that], “Because we looked a little bit alike,” Robin admitted to Joey, very flattered. Jenny was a newly converted Joey fan, screaming, “Where are your albums? You need albums! You need a lot of albums!”- Joey replied that he was already planning to compose music again. Robin said, “You look great.” So, Joey may thrive again… but it’s all over for the walrus.
Milkshake also didn’t bring all the judges or studio audience voters to the yard (sorry, again – this time for pointing out of topic in the mid-2000s), though his stellar performance of Sir Mix-a-Lot “Jump on” was There are judges Nicole Scherzinger and Ken Jeong thinking he was a “superstar” of hip-hop like LL Cool G, DJ Jazzy Jeff, Nas, Ice Cube, or even T.I. (if that It was I was a T.I. I’m pretty sure Robin, the former “Blurred Lines” collaborator at T.I., would have quickly ruled that out.)
Instead, this dairy king turned out to be NFL running back Le’Veon Bell, who tried to tackle the Lambs in a Roxbury-worthy duel from Haddaway’s “What Is Love,” but couldn’t compete against blissful, mixed, and bleating harmonies. But that might not be the last we’ve heard from Le’Veon either. “I’m really trying to showcase my talents, you know? A lot of people know me in football. I just wanted to go into another path and show people that I am talented in other things than just football,” he explained.
Therefore, this means that the ruling queen, or Queens, they retained their title for the second week: the thin flock known as lambs. These pop star sheep’s outfits coordinated nicely with Alanis Morissette’s “Ironic” and made Nicole scream, “Oh my God, your voices unbelievable! You seem like you score higher there! It was clear from the girl-only group singing that those musicians with the instrumental pieces were Wilson Phillips, as I predicted last week. But in case anyone reading this needs more convincing, here are the clues:
We know The Lambs are childhood “best friends,” plus we’ve seen references to the SoCal towns of Beverly Hills and Venice — and Chynna Phillips, Carnie Wilson, and Wendy Wilson all grew up together in California. We saw the word ‘FAMOUS’ emblazoned on a pair of designer jeans – and these women did Fame in genes As a descendant of John and Michelle Phillips of the Mamas and Papas and Brian Wilson of the Beach Boys. We’ve seen a diamond ring – mostly like referring to bridesmaids, which included cameo creator Wilson Phillips. The Lambs boasted that they had worked with Paul McCartney—and Wilson Phillips contributed back-up songs to McCartney’s “FourFiveSeconds” in 2015. Other tips included a mention of Fleetwood Mac’s Go Your Own Way, which Wilson Phillips covered in 2004; “Dream” (either a reference to the biggest hit of the Mamas and the Papas song, or Wilson Phillips’ song “The Dream Is Still Alive”); and “Reality” (Wilson Phillips starred in his reality TV series, still standing, in 2012, and Carney has appeared on several reality shows). It’s not at all an impulsive guess when I say the lambs are Wilson Phillips.
So, can the Lambs only hold out for a day, and qualify for this season’s semi-finals alongside Season 8 reigning queen, Amber “The Harp” Riley? Find out next week, when they compete against other new contestants.
