The Masked Singer: Badger ‘gives away’ identity with Barbra Streisand tribute

The Masked Singer: Badger receives a note from ‘Barbra’

There are just five contestants left on The Masked Singer: Robin, Badger, Harlequin, Sausage and Dragon. Fans have been kept guessing for weeks over the identity of each of the characters but in the latest instalment, Badger may have let slip who they really are.

Badger performed Wrecking Ball by Miley Cyrus on Saturday night as they continued to showcase their incredible vocals.

Before they took to the stage, they gave viewers several new clues, one of which referenced a famous Barbra.

Badger teased: “In my last performance, I dug deep to deliver. The panel still haven’t quite pinned a name on this Badger.

“Perhaps they have tunnel vision for this tunneller. I have already told that Badgers live in sets but have I told you, we’re also used to being on them.

“There’s more than one type of studio this Badger is used to. Does that sound cryptic? Good because I love to play games.

“I play to win, look at all my awards. What I can tell you is tonight, when the director yells ‘Action’ this Badger’s going to come out fighting.”

After Badger had performed, the judges were given further clues with it being revealed they had been sent a thank you note from someone called Barbra.

“Badger, just wanted to say thank you. Love Barbra xx,” it read.

The clue prompted many to believe Badger must be Ne-Yo as the pair have duetted together in the past.

“Ne-Yo sang a tribute to Barbra Streisand,” one viewer posted on Twitter.

Another added: “Ne-yo always wears hats and duetted with Barbra Streisand. Definitely Badger.

“Having a brain full of useful info may actually serve me well for once.”

A third shared: “I’m finally coming round to the idea that Badger is Ne-Yo.

“He performed at a tribute concert for Barbra Streisand and last week he sang ‘Because of You’ and Ne-Yo also has a song called that.”

“Badger = Ne Yo. He performed in a tribute to Barbra Streisand when the Kennedy Centre honoured her career,” a fifth tweeted.

Bookmakers have revealed Ne-Yo is in fact the favourite to be revealed as Badger in the coming weeks with odds of 5/4.

Other guesses include Kevin Clifton (2/1), Carl Fogarty (4/1), Will Green (4/1) and Guy Martin (5/1).

Alex Apati of Ladbrokes said: “Lenny Henry’s Masked Singer exit means we’re now into the business end of the competition and while a couple of acts are still up for debate, it’s looking increasingly likely Sue Perkins and Gabrielle will soon be revealed.”

The Masked Singer continues Saturday on ITV at 7pm.
