Mickey Rourke was the second artist to leave “The Masked Singer” in season 4, performing as Gremlins. The cute, warm dress may have contributed to the premature exit, as Rourke decided to lift her mask after performing. (Scroll down to do a self-inspection.)
Surprising Nick Cannon, the show’s panelist and host, he said, “Damiti, it’s hot, I’m taking it off.”
“We’ve lost control, this is the Gremlin show!” Cannon called out for help. By that time it was too late. “It’s a ‘masked singer’,” Cannon said. “We didn’t get votes, other people didn’t get to exit.”
Rourke decided not to press any in relation to his exit, which included everyone. When asked by Cannon on the show why he wanted to do ‘M The Mask Singer’, Rourke said, “I was in the neighborhood. I like this show, I watched four episodes and they asked if I would be interested if I was watching from the beginning and it’s all nonsense.
On “The Mask Singer”, Rourke-a-Gremlin played Ben E. Performed King’s “Stand By Me”. Rourke introduced his friend Willie Devil as a musician who died in 2009. “It meant a lot because this song was sung by Willie Devil, one of my best friends,” he said. “Willie died a long time ago and I have missed him for a long time. I think Willy sent me this song the other night for some reason. ”
However he did not give his final estimate – Rourke took off his mask before he got to that point – but before that, panelist Jenny McCarthy Wahlberg guessed him right. Other names speculated included Jerry Lee Lewis (Robin Thicke) and Stone Cold Steve Austin (Ken Jeong).
“Greetings, I’m Gremlins,” the character said in his clue package. “Despite my checkered history, I can actually be quite attractive. A true romantic. You may have heard that I may be a little belligerent. But I also have an alcoholic side. I roam all the animals, long on the beach, and curse worthy opponents with foreign objects for maximum effect. I also like to cook. Maybe you like what you see. I love you for dinner I mean, for dinner. But first of all, I trust you. ”
This season, the show’s panelists are competing for a “Golden Year” trophy based on their first impressions of each “masked artist” – and in one week, Thicke and Schrezinger took the lead as they both chose Busty Rhymes Was. But in week two, it was not revealed if anyone’s first impression was correct (but it is doubtful).
The group’s costumes for this episode also included Baby Alien, Crocodile, Whatmaklit, Seahorse and Serpent.
