The following story contains SPOILERS about The Masked Singer!
The Masked Singer Australia has cemented our qualifications as detectives and boy, do we have news for you: we totally know who Kebab is on the hit singing show!
After wowing on night one with a saucy performance of Donna Summer’s Hot Stuff, reality TV sleuths have been hard at work deciphering clues in order to uncover the mystery performer.
If you’re a fan of singing competitions past, you’ll certainly know our prediction as to who is under the Kebab mask… Jack Vidgen!
Yep, we are more than certain that the 2010 Australia’s Got Talent winner and The Voice 2019 competitor is living it up on The Masked Singer stage and we’ve got the clues to prove it!
What Are The Kebab’s Clues on The Masked Singer so Far?
When the judges inquired about Kebab’s gender, they said: “Mostly I’m one but I have been known to be the other.”
The star singer has been known to have a feminine singing voice, but he has also appeared online dressed in drag which could be what’s referenced in the clues.
We also think Jack’s Australia’s Got Talent audition has been referenced with a clue implying that he is “kissed by strangers”, particularly the moment when judge Brian McFadden rushed on stage to give him a kiss on the cheek!
Most obviously, Jack’s newly released single Pray seemed to be referred to when Kebab was shown to be thinking of a bible in the mindreader.
Who Do Fans of The Masked Singer Predict?
Fans of The Masked Singer Australia have been throwing around Jack’s name online all season, with several noting that his voice is unmistakable!
Kebab is Jack Vidgen. His voice is so recognisable #MaskedSingerAU— michelle (@shelllou02) September 20, 2021
Kebab being Jack Vidgen is about as obvious as Em Rusciano being Dolly #MaskedSingerAU— Corey (@coreyramsay03) September 26, 2021
Who Do The Judging Panel Think The Kebab is?
The Masked Singer judging panel may have been on the money back in week one when they also guessed that Jack was Kebab, but they’ve since pivoted to suggest several other names instead:
- Lindsay Lohan
- Britney Spears
- Courtney Act
- Kylie Minogue
- Hugh Sheridan
- Ru Paul
- Ollie Alexander
- Rebel Wilson
- Billy Idol
Little did they know their gut instincts were correct!
What Has Jack Vidgen Said About The Masked Singer?
During an interview with Hit100.9’s Jimmy and Nath, the singer was unable to convince listeners that he isn’t hiding under the Kebab costume after being forced to address the rumours.
“No, I’m not [Kebab],” he told the hosts. “I’m waiting for Channel 10 to call me up because I want to do the show,”
The radio show’s producer Grace Garde is also a friend of Jack’s, who said she would bet her own house on the fact that her pal is Kebab!
“I know Jack can’t give anything away, if it is him, obviously, I don’t want to throw him under the bus, but I would put my house on it,” she said, to which Jack responded: “Looks like you’re losing your house, doll.”
