The Rabbit was one of the mystery celebrity contestants who performed on “The Masked Singer” Season 1 episode 4 titled “Another Mask Bites the Dust,” which aired on Fox on January 23, 2019. He competed against the Alien, the Bee, the Poodle and the Raven.
“Knows how to spell O-R-A-N-G-E,” read the caption of the Rabbit’s photo for “Another Mask Bites the Dust.” There was also a video of him with oranges on a ledge.
On “Another Mask Bites the Dust,” the Rabbit was the first one to perform. He sang “Wake Me Up” by the late Swedish musician Tim Bergling, who was professionally known as Avicii.
Avicii co-wrote “Wake Me Up” with Egbert Nathaniel Dawkins III, who is professionally known as Aloe Blacc, and rock band Incubus guitarist Mike Einziger. Blacc provided the vocals while Einziger provided acoustic guitar for the track, which was released on June 17, 2013 as the lead single of Avicii’s debut studio album titled “True.”
Joel McHale was back as a guest panelist on Another Mask Bites the Dust.” He joined resident judges Ken Jeong, Robin Thicke, Nicole Scherzinger and Jenny McCarthy in the panel.
One of the new clues to The Rabbit’s identity is the workout drink Shakeology in his package. He said he once found safety in a group but sometimes not getting to be himself can leave him feeling boxed in.
Each week in “The Masked Singer,” The Rabbit promises to “cook up something new.” Thicke noticed that the masked singer is a seasoned performer while Scherzinger praised his vocals.
Among the guesses from the panel were any of the members of Lady Antebellum and the Rascall Flatts. Along with host Nick Cannon, the panelists still believe that the Rabbit could be any of the former members of NSYNC including Joey Fatone and JC Chasez.
Sherzinger has toured with NSYNC. The former member of The Pussycat Dolls asked The Rabbit if they have ever toured together.
The Rabbit said there have been too many people for him to remember. He also revealed that he likes to rhyme and rap.
At the end of “Another Mask Bites the Dust,” the Poodle got the lowest votes. It was revealed that she is Margaret Cho.
The other remaining mystery celebrity singers of “The Masked Singer” Season 1 are the Lion, the Peacock, the Unicorn and the Monster. Meanwhile, watch the Bee sing “Locked Out of Heaven” here:
