Amongst seasoned stars returning for reunion performances and an array of guessing games, one masked performer captured the limelight.
Who is Anonymouse?
The mysterious Anonymouse graced the stage with a captivating rendition of Heart’s “What About Love,” prompting viewers to fire up their detective skills. The buzz was palpable as judges Ken Jeong, Jenny McCarthy, Nicole Scherzinger, and Robin Thicke threw in their guesses. Could Anonymouse be Christina Aguilera, Miley Cyrus, Ariana Grande, Lady Gaga, or Alicia Keys? Jeong was particularly struck, dubbing Anonymouse as “the most powerful voice on the show.”
However, the intrigue didn’t stop there. A subsequent list of potential identities comprised of Kelly Clarkson, Jennifer Hudson, Demi Lovato, and Pink had the panel even more curious.
Amongst the suspense surrounding Anonymouse’s identity, the evening was sprinkled with nostalgic performances. A standout moment was the on-stage reunion of Michelle Williams (Butterfly from season 2) and Rumer Willis (Lion from season 1), bringing back fond memories from the show’s earlier days.
Further adding to the night’s charm were Bow Wow and Joey Fatone, delivering an enthusiastic performance of The Jackson 5’s “ABC.” Fun fact: Fatone’s devotion to his Rabbit persona from season 1 led him to get a tattoo of it! As he exclaimed, “That’s called dedication people!”
Clues, Clues, and More Clues!
Hints about Anonymouse’s identity revolved around Nick Jonas, Texas, a tiara, and even a dinosaur. The performer candidly shared their struggle with fame, expressing how they felt “funny inside,” leading many to believe they were recounting genuine personal experiences. The narrative of hitting rock bottom and finding a renewed purpose struck a chord with many.
The episode wasn’t just about Anonymouse. New performers, including Diver, Gazelle, and Royal Hen, teased the audience with their own sets of clues. Husky’s cryptic message stood out, suggesting, “Don’t go barking up the wrong tree — here’s 10 million hits at who I am.”
Unmasking the Legend
The climax of the episode was, without doubt, the grand reveal. As Jeong anticipated that Anonymouse might be “the biggest star” in the show’s ten-season history, the moment of truth approached. The consensus among the judges leaned towards Demi Lovato being the face beneath the mask. And they weren’t wrong! As the “Skyscraper” singer was unveiled, the panel was in awe.
