Warning! The following contains spoilers for The Masked Singer's Season 3 Group C eliminations. Read at your own risk!
The Masked Singer is chopping contestants from Group C one at a time, and we're only one week away from the start of the Top 9 showdown. The good news is that it won't be long before we see the best of this competition go head to head. The bad news is that there's a solid chance one Season 3's most nightmarish contestants will be advancing, the Night Angel.
While Night Angel has one of the stronger voices in the competition, she also has the most unsettling costume The Masked Singer has created. Fans have admitted they're a bit frightened by the costume, and think Night Angel is the type of thing someone would see in a bad dream.
The Night Angel is certainly off-putting, but is it just because she's on The Masked Singer? Personally, I could see this character in a parade and not bat an eye, but when put up against the cartoonish costumes other contestants are wearing, it's hard not to be a little freaked out by someone that looks like winged demon with a vacant mouth. Being in a dark room with Night Angel would certainly be more stressful than the same circumstance with The Banana, that's for sure.
The Masked Singer contestant is so unsettling to some viewers that they're actively rooting for her to get voted off. It's a brutal take considering Night Angel is a talented singer, but it wouldn't be the first time someone with a superior voice was voted off early.
The Night Angel is horrifying, even if her true identity on The Masked Singer seemingly isn't a secret. The internet feels pretty sure she's former Xscape and reality star Kandi Burruss, and their evidence is pretty convincing. So much so that it's hard to really think of anyone else who fits the bill, though we don't know for sure.
Even allegedly guessing The Masked Singer's boogeyman does little to shake others' fear of Night Angel. For two consecutive weeks the tweets have rolled in with multiple people commenting on just how creepy her costume is and how they want nothing to do with her.
While Night Angel may look off compared to the American version of The Masked Singer, the costume is on par with some Asian spinoffs. In general the American costumes tend to be a lot more cartoony than the Asian iterations of the show, many of which predate the American run of The Masked Singer. Night Angel wouldn't be out of place on those shows, but here she looks just a little too human compared to others.
At least, that's my theory on why folks are upset with her costume. Needless to say Twitter is really good at getting a general thought from the masses across, but can be rather light on details at times.
We have no idea how far Night Angel will go in The Masked Singer, but I can imagine the scared takes will continue until she says goodbye. At least for the most part it seems all in good fun, and most people aren't legitimately terrified by this competitor. For those that are, perhaps try to think of the cuteness of Kangaroo or the sweet dance moves of Dinosaur when Night Angel is on screen?
