The Masked Singer, season 8 of the Thanksgiving special, declared Snowstorm a semifinalist
LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA: ‘The Masked Singer’ Season 8 Thanksgiving Special finally hits the big screen! Casting a spooky spell, the ‘Fright Night’ episode showcased the scary but exciting side of the masked singers. Snowstorm brought the scary competition and was introduced to new masked singers Sir Bugaboo and Scarecrow. However, the one who faltered mid-show was Scarecrow.
Scarecrow took the stage in the most theatrical manner and cheered all around. As soon as she entered “The Masked Singer,” the judges claimed the masked singer was someone who could also dance and sing. Before beginning the performance, Scarecrow claimed, “Hold on to your bitch friend because I’m the scariest contestant on ‘The Masked Singer.'” The singer sang “Abracadabra” by Steve Miller. Her sultry voice shocked the judges and made them make strange assumptions. Well, the scarecrow shocked everyone by eliminating himself as a tribute to the show. She claimed to have a “special reason” for being on FOX’s show. The masked singer further thanked the network and the show for entertaining many people around the world. She said, “I want to officially say goodbye and unmask.” It appeared to be happening for the first time in The Masked Singer’s history. Let’s look at the clues connecting Linda Blair to the Scarecrow mask.
Notes for scarecrow
FOX’s first clue to this masked singer was a “crow.” When Scarecrow took the stage, she brought a number of other clues with her. The star claimed she “did the scariest job.” This was indeed a reference to her scary/horror films. The masked singer added that she also has an “academy” to have her work recognized. Scarecrow added that she’s “turned a lot of heads” in her career. The singer also sang on Broadway. Well, another clue was that this masked singer “traded red carpet for green pasture.” This indicated that she was using her fame from the industry to do something good for cattle.
When Scarecrow shocked everyone with her warm and luscious voice, the judges claimed this masked singer was “too fit”. Panelists linked Scarecrow’s goofy nature on stage, claiming the masked singer is someone who is a legend, knows how to have fun and doesn’t take things seriously. The further reference to this masked singer was “a witch”. Scarecrow said, “The clue is staring you straight in the face.” The judges immediately replied, “Witch?” The guesses for this masked singer were Susan Sarandon, Anjelica Houston, Glenn Close and Parker Posey. However, neither of them was right. Scarecrow has been revealed to be The Exorcist actress Linda Blair.
The scariest work reference pointed to the film she made in her career, Exorcist II: The Heretic, The Exorcist, Repossessed, The Green Fairy, Hell Night, and many others. In addition, the witch reference pointed to her “Witchery” films. The Golden Globe Note was that Linda won the Golden Globe Award for Best Supporting Actress for her 1974 film The Exorcist. She was also nominated once for the Academy Awards. Linda claims to believe in paranormal activity, so coming to the episode “Fright Night” was a great connection.
Furthermore, the decision to dress up as a scarecrow had a reason. Linda claims at the end of the show that she “was involved with abused animals.” Linda supports animal welfare, so coming onto such a big stage dressed as a scarecrow was a tribute to her love for animals.
Along with Scarecrow, Sir Bugaboo was eliminated in the “Fright Night” episode, allowing Snowstorm to advance to the semifinals. Season 8, Episode 10 of The Masked Singer will be released on FOX on November 24 at 8:00 p.m. ET.
