Viewers have been wildly guessing as to who could be behind the fishnet tights and pink combat boots as she’s rocked the stage with her marvelous singing ability.
But, Masked Singer detectives are certain that they’ve worked out who Rockhopper is after spotting a hint on her costume and a clue that was given during the latest episode (Saturday Jan. 29) about the power going out.
The last episode had double the clues, so we had our eyes peeled for anything we could spot and observant fans soon noticed a belt on Rockhopper’s costume with the roman numerals XLVII on it
In addition, during Rockhopper’s clue package, she teased: “Change is good. It provides growth, and that's always important. Did someone forget to pay the electricity?" before the lights went out. Judge Jonathan Ross, as well as the public, thought this could be referencing a major event that famously had the power go out, so viewers at home did some research to find out.
Viewers discovered that the roman numerals XLVII could refer to the Super Bowl XLVII in 2013, which famously suffered a power cut.
Fans soon began putting the pieces together and knew that Destiny’s Child had performed at the 2013 Super Bowl and are now sure that the masked singer is a member of the international group sensation.
However, fans on social media are torn between two members for who Rockhopper could be — Michelle Williams or Kelly Rowland.
Rockhopper is @KELLYROWLAND #MaskedSingerUK Roman numerals xlvii (Superbowl 47 had destiny's child as half time show & during that match lights went out). Squared circle is another name for a boxing ring & Kelly rowland does boxing workout videos. Also been in circus at 02.January 29, 2022
Michelle Williams, Destiny's Child. She was born in Rockford Illinois, played the halftime show at the "Blackout Bowl" (Superbowl XLVII). XLVII was on the back of her jacket. Nailed it 🤔? #MaskedSingerUK #Rockhopper pic.twitter.com/YHK8SXu8aoJanuary 29, 2022
Rockhopper VT showed lights going out. She also has XLVII on her back. Super Bowl XLVII was when the arena light went out. Halftime show was Beyoncé feat Destiny’s Child. My guess would be Michelle Williams #MaskedSingerukJanuary 29, 2022
#MaskedSingerUK Rockhopper’s belt XLVII and the blackout clue refer to this Superbowl:https://t.co/W6QRaakMOeSo someone who was involved in it. Kelly Rowland?January 29, 2022
Michelle Williams appeared on the second season of The Masked Singer US and was unmasked as Butterfly in the competition, but could she be making an appearance again on the UK version? We’ll have to wait and find out!
