If This Person Is Not the Queen on The Masked Singer, I Will Eat My Hat – See Her Performances
The Queen has one of the standout voices on this season of The Masked Singer, which has sent her soaring easily into the grand final! Still, she might be unmasked before she gets the chance to win the competition, like Michael Bevan as the Hammerhead and Christine Anu as the Goldfish before her.
Some people online are absolutely certain that Kate Miller-Heidke is the very impressive voice behind the Queen mask. Here’s their justification:
- A reference to being “one of the crowd” likely references her song “Caught in the Crowd”, while another clue also points to her song “Last Day on Earth”. Something about a beard links to her collab with The Beards to raise money for bowel cancer.
- A clue pointing to the Rabbitohs might be an attempt to misdirect people — she adapted John Marsden’s children’s book The Rabbits into an opera. She also adapted Muriel’s Wedding into a musical, which is referenced in clues that she hopes “nobody calls [her] terrible”. Nods to Shakespeare reference her writing the music for Twelfth Night for Melbourne Theatre Company.
- “13 times the bridesmaid but never the bride” refers to her 13 ARIA nominations, with no wins.
- The idea she “rules the world”, a picture of an astronaut and a picture of the stars on the European Union flag point to her stint as Australia’s Eurovision contestant with “Zero Gravity”. She’s also performed at Coachella, which links to a line about her “travel[ling] by coach”.
- Links to Tasmania potentially refer to her Tasmanian vocal coach. Her operatic background is referenced in hints about Italy.
- A laundry reference alludes to her touring with Ben Folds through the US, UK and Europe. Plus she’s had “many stages in [her] life” — of course she’s performed on many stages!
- Her celebrity clue about Jay-Z likely refers to performing at the same Coachella on the same stage as the rapper!
People are also suss on the fact that unlike last year when she roundly denied she was the Spider, she’s been awfully quiet this year . . .
