Who is the Peacock on ‘The Masked Singer?’ Fans Have Some Ideas

Even though it features Nick Cannon as the host of the show, Fox’s The Masked Singer is a lot different from America’s Got Talent. Whereas the latter show features anonymous performers displaying any talent, such as singing, dancing, or comedy, The Masked Singer features one talent — you guessed it, singing. The contestants are anonymous in head-to-toe costumes, but under the masks are some well-known celebrities. Tommy Chong, Antonio Brown, and Terry Bradshaw were the first three to leave the show. Meanwhile, the Peacock seems to be in it for the long haul. But who is The Masked Singer Peacock? Fans have some ideas and guesses based on the clues, but what do you think?

Here’s who fans believe The Masked Singer Peacock is


Right after the first The Masked Singer episode aired on January 2, 2019, fans started trying to guess the celebrities competing on the show. As we mentioned, Tommy Chong, Antonio Brown, and Terry Bradshaw got booted during the first three episodes.

Based on some of the early clues, fans believe Alfonso Ribeiro, Neil Patrick Harris, or Elton John could be The Masked Singer Peacock. However, it seems like most fans, and the sleuths who pay attention to the clues, believe Donny Osmond is the Peacock.

What clues reveal the Peacock’s identity?

Several of the clues provided during the first three episodes point to The Masked Singer Peacock being Donny Osmond.

  • The Peacock said appearing on the show “felt like I was five years old again.” Donny Osmond was five when he started performing with The Osmond Brothers on The Andy Williams Show, according to GoldDerby.
  • The character later explained, “I started out as a little teeny-bopper.” Osmond split from his brothers and became one of the biggest child stars of the 1970s on his own.
  • Peacock also mentioned having “many different incarnations in my career.” Donny Osmond does a little bit of everything in show business, including stage acting, voice work, and hosting (The Pyramid Game).

What else do we know about Donny Osmond?

If Donny Osmond is The Masked Singer Peacock, and if he goes on to win, then it won’t be his first reality TV triumph.

He’s not among the oldest Dancing With the Stars contestants ever, but he remains the oldest champion. Osmond won win 2009.

Osmond and his sister, Marie Osmond, have a wildly successful Las Vegas show. Pair that with his other showbiz duties and his longevity, and it’s easy to see why Donny Osmond is one of the richest Mormons in the world, far ahead of the stars of the TV show Sister Wives.

Who else is on The Masked Singer?

Aside from Nick Cannon and the performers, the judges are the other cast members on The Masked Singer, and we know who they are.

Former Pussycat Dolls singer Nicole Scherzinger is one of the judges, and Jenny McCarthy is the other female on the panel.

Meanwhile, singer Robin Thicke knows a thing or two about what makes a successful performance. Life-saving comedian Ken Jeong is the fourth judge who is always ready with a quick one-liner.
