Night Angel on Season 3 of The Masked Singer has been able to sing her way into the top five on the FOX competition. As the season winds down, there are only four other competitors who could potentially take home the trophy: Rhino, Turtle, Kitty or Frog.
Last week, Hunter Hayes was unmasked as The Astronaut. It was a reveal that fans had pegged for weeks. Hayes was happy to be able to reconnect with his friends and family. “It’s nice to be able to respond to text messages that I’ve been avoiding for months because I’ve been avoiding everybody,” Hayes told People magazine. “I’m not good at lying or making up anything else.
While viewers now know who was lending their vocals to The Astronaut, we still don’t know who is responsible for Night Angel’s velvety voice. Of course, there have plenty of clues and guesses over the course of Season 3. Continue reading to find out everything we know about Night Angel.
‘The Masked Singer’ Night Angel Clues
In this week’s clue package, she said this season has been singing since she was 4 years old. It was her aunt her caught her singing into a brush and “taught me all about rhythm and tone.” That phrase immediately made Scherzinger guess Destiny’s Child.
“I need to make it through to the semi-finals,” Night Angel said. “This is going to show what my auntie taught me and prove this is not my last dance.”
In the clue about what was found on her front porch, the “Men in Black” brought out snow boots and goggles. It seemed to be a hint that they were “very cold” about their guesses.
Night Angel likes to play with duality. Her clue packages have consisted of playing between dark and light, saying she’s “a little bit dangerous and a little bit sweet.” Last week, clues in her package included a luggage tag that said boss, a crown, an ostrich, a snow globe, and a bee. There was also a fish hook, which confused judge Robin Thicke.
In the same package, she said, “Free your mind,” which made judge Nicole Scherzinger think about En Vogue. Night Angel also hinted that being on The Masked Singer was like a rebirth for her. “Being here has reawakened parts of myself I have kept on the down low,” she said.
Previous visual clues were things like older women wielding weapons in a motel, a purple heart emoji, a white hand fan, a castle, sweet tea and the numbers four, five and six.
Other phrases she has said were things like “that boy is mine,” and “it’s my prerogative to have a little fun,” which could be hints that she’s a ’90s star.
She also appears to speak with a British accent, but most viewers think the accent is fake and that Night Angel is trying to throw people off.
Night Angel on ‘The Masked Singer’ Guesses
Who is Night Angel? McCarthy was confident Night Angel would be making it through to the finals. Night Angel said it was a “dream come true” to sing in front of them.
Going of the lipstick clue, Scherzinger guessed Tiny Harris. Other guesses from the judges were TLC singer T-Boz and Alicia Keys.
Scherzinger actually shot down one of the top guesses on last week’s episode. The most popular theory circulating around the internet is that Real Housewives of Atlanta star Kandi Burruss is the singer responsible for Night Angel. But when one of the judges ventured that as a guess, Scherzinger said it couldn’t be the Bravo reality TV star because she was in Atlanta filming the show.
Instead, Scherzinger seemed confident that Night Angel could be En Vogue singer Dawn Robinson. Ken Jeong took a wild guess and said it could be Chili from TLC, reasoning that Night Angel’s culinary clue, which was spicy bugs, alluded to her stage name.
Aside from Burruss being one of the most popular guesses online, another theory is that Night Angel could be Taraji Henson. Scherzinger has made the assumption in previous episodes of the season, saying Henson has a great voice and could be the person behind Night Angel’s mask.
