It was “Fright Night” on Fox’s The Masked Singer, and two icons gave its judges the fright of their lives.

Season 8, episode 9 featured two more reveals.

The Scarecrow offered to unmask the Scarecrow and let his rivals advance in a shocking move.

Under the helmet was Linda Blair, the Oscar-nominated, head-turning, projectile-vomiting child star of The Exorcist. Judge Jenny McCarthy commented, “My mind is blow right at the moment.” “I’ve never felt so shocked in this series .”

She wasn’t alone, judging by the faces of her panelists and the faces of her audience.

Soon after, Sir Bugaboo was unmasked following a battle royale between Snowstorm and Sir Bugaboo, in which both contestants took turns singing Rockwell’s “Somebody watching me.”

Beneath the mask was the original Ghostbuster, Ray Parker, Jr., whose theme song for the classic ’80s comedy-horror logged three weeks at No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100 and won a Grammy Award (for best pop instrumental performance).

Robin Thicke, judge, commented that it was an honor to have him on the show.

“It’s great to be here. He replied, “I’ve had too many fun.”

Parker was asked if he wanted to share a thought or two with the audience. His message was clear: If you need an extra celebrity on the show who are you going to call?

Blair and Parker join the likes of George Foreman (Venus Flytrap), George Clinton (Gopher), Daymond John (Fortune Teller), the “Brady boys” Mike Lookinland, Barry Williams and Christopher Knight (Mummies), Montell Jordan (Panther), Jeff Dunham (Pi-Rat), Chris Kirkpatrick (Hummingbird), Eric Idle (Hedgehog) and William Shatner (Knight) as contestants revealed so far in the 2022 series.

TMS season 8 introduces many changes to its format.

Each episode features a new round of masked celebs. Only one contestant moves forward at the end of each hour. Plus, the audience votes live in-studio for their favorite performance. The singer with the lowest total will then unmask in mid-show before taking his or her spot in the new Masked Singer VIP section.
