SPAIN – On the night of Wednesday, December 16, ‘Mask Singer: Guess Who Sings’ reached its semi-final, with six masks risking their way to the grand final. A special occasion for which the contest had to say goodbye to two of its masks after each of the two confrontations between three of the contestants. The first of them, which faced Camaleón, Catrina and Pavo Real, ended the latter out of the program, so he ended up removing his mask to reveal the identity of Pastora Soler.
The artist was discovered by the investigators at the previous gala, in which Malú was absolutely sure of her identity, thus joining the rest of her companions while they fitted the clues with Soler. However, in the semifinal, the Madrilenian was the only one who remained in her thirteen and continued to insist that her friend was under the Peacock mask, especially after seeing the montage of a photo in which the person, under his disguise, posed with the artist Rosalía. A snapshot that took place at a concert in which Malú herself was present, thus reaffirming her bet.
«Whatever it does, it’s the mask that can vocally sing whatever it wants», observed the artist., after the performance of Pavo Real before he lost the duel with his teammates. After her number, the rest of the researchers launched their bets, away from Pastora Soler: Javier Calvo bet on Gisela; José Mota, by Ruth Lorenzo; while Javier Ambrossi opted once again for Gemma Mengual.
«If it is that I have you totally caladísima!», Exclaimed Malú, excited, once Soler removed the mask. In fact, the contestant did not hesitate to protest somewhat, remembering how she was surprised by the presence of her friend, which was not exactly in her favour, nor by the presence of Vanesa Martín as a guest in one of the galas, given her closeness relationship.
«I’m sorry, I’m not Gemma Mengual, but I would have loved it», said Pastora, who confessed to having especially enjoyed her first two performances on the show because «they were super mad».
«I have dared to sing in English, which I had never done», confessed the contestant, after which she pointed out that «they have been momentazos under the mask passing me a pipe».
« I wanted to reach the final because I had a great song saved», admitted Soler, who was able to say goodbye to the program by interpreting the song, «I Will Always Love You», by Whitney Houston, displaying all her talent.
On the night of Wednesday, December 16, ‘Mask Singer: Guess Who Sings’ reached its semi-final, with six masks risking their way to the grand final. A special occasion for which the contest had to say goodbye to two of its masks after each of the two confrontations between three of the contestants. While the first concluded with the elimination of Pastora Soler under the mask of Pavo Real, the second duel between the Poodle, the Raven and the Sunflower ended with the elimination of the last of them, who hid the artist Albano Carrisi, better known by the stage name of Al Bano.
The name of Al Bano was one of the most sounded from the beginning of the program, along with the comedian Mustache Arrocet and, in fact, both ended up dividing the researchers in the final stretch of the program. Before the semifinal, both Javier Calvo and Javier Ambrossi had opted for the second, while the Italian artist had been chosen by Malú and José Mota. The two kept their bet in the semifinal, in which the Javises ended up joining them, although Calvo initially bet on Arrocet before changing his mind.
In this way, Al Bano became the first contestant in the edition to be discovered by each and every one of the researchers, who were enthusiastic about the presence of the Italian in the format. « It could not be another, » said the researchers, after celebrating their success. « It has been a totally new experience. At another time it would be impossible, I am always on tour around the world, but the Covid has allowed me to be with you »Carrisi confessed enthusiastically, before describing his time on the program as « a beautiful experience » and « a great game », and even joking with how « well » he had disguised his accent. « The voice of Al Bano reaches you, it is a number one, » the researchers praised.
« I have a son who has studied music and he has always told me to sing Freddie Mercury and, thanks to this program, I have done everything he said my son wanted to hear from me», said Carrisi, after which Ambrossi declared that « you have given us the creeps, you have excited us, you have amused us, it is an honour to have you here. » Following the researcher’s words, Al Bano said goodbye to the program by interpreting the song « Nessun dorma » with which he moved both Ambrossi and Calvo, who could barely contain their tears. Among the resolved clues, the program clarified that the Italian « at his home in Cellino, produces his own wine and oil », « Nina is the name of his horse », in addition to that « a white hat is his fetish garment. »
