Watching the performances on The Masked Singer Australia is no doubt exciting, however, fans also flock to the show in the hopes of figuring out the insane clues that will give us an idea of who is under the mask!

With the hit singing show back for its fourth — and arguably best season yet — fans are clamouring for hints as to which local and international celebrities are hitting the stage.

One of The Masked Singer Australia’s biggest draw cards is the contestants’ elaborate costuming, which lowkey give us clues about the mystery celebs under the mask. Source: Ten.

And, because we know the panellists love to nit-pick every last hint (Dave Hughes, we’re looking at you), it’s only fair that we compile all the masks’ clues for the optimum sleuthing experience.

So far, we know that one of The Masked Singer Australia contestants has sold over 50 million records worldwide, while another is a Grammy award winner. Plus, there’s also an Olympic gold medallist in the mix!

So, what else do we know about The Masked Singer Australia 2022 celebrities?

Rooster

Visual Clues

  • Rooster was seen presiding over his Poultry Palace before he was fitted for some boxing gloves in a gym that had a poster of an AUSCAR Championship.
  • There was a very Matrix-inspired backdrop.
  • Rooster gave a bodyguard a haircut.
  • He was also seen reading a book titled Australia’s Great Churches while two bodyguards took turns slapping each other next to a framed photo of Frank Sinatra.

Spoken Clues

“I am Rooster, and I’m cocky for a reason. Some people see me as untamed. I’m okay with that. Maybe that’s why I’m so close to doing all the dumb things. Family is important to me, privately and publicly, but I don’t like to do a big song and dance about it. As a child, I learned about attitude. It’s kept me out of the darkest places, except once: a place without a chandelier. I’m the Rooster, and I’m the boss of this barnyard.”

Panel Question and Answer

“Are you a religious person?”

“Where I grew up, I was surrounded by religion.”

Visual Clues

  • Tiger was seen playing the piano next to one bodyguard playing the violin and another stroking a stuffed dingo toy.
  • The piano also had a photo of Chelsea Clinton, a gold ribbon and the music score for the theme from BMX Bandits.
  • Tiger was also seen wearing a tutu, measuring a chair next to a circus tent.

Spoken Clues

“I’m the Tiger, beautiful but powerful and dangerous. Although I am a Tiger, I do have links to lions. Either way, I love nature. The thunder doesn’t scare me. I just block it from my mind. But I do prefer the sun. I’m comfortable in the jungle or even a nature strip. I am the Tiger, and I will tear this competition apart.”

Panel Question and Answer

“You said you prefer the sun, are you a swimmer or an Iron Man?”

“I can tell you this, my childhood was very, very physical.”

Snapdragon

snapdragon masked singer

Visual Clues

  • Snapdragon was seen holding a sign that read “Snapdragons love Jim Carrey” while a bodyguard approached holding a small chandelier.
  • Snapdragon also did a workout, while their bodyguard lifted a weight that said 100, while he held something a little lighter and lifted a weight that said “one”.

Spoken Clues

“I’m Snapdragon, and I’ve got the looks and the bite. Snapdragons may not breathe fire, but we are determined. The world of flowers is tough, we compete for our time in the sun, but even then, you don’t really see me as I am. That’s why some people call me mysterious. I’m Snapdragon, and it’s time for me to blossom.”

Popcorn

Popcorn.

Visual Clues

  • Popcorn stood on a desert road holding a sign that said “Fame” as pink clouds rolled in the background.
  • Then, a bodyguard appeared holding a tray with a baseball, a bible and a rubber snake.
  • Popcorn picked up the snake and kissed it before he was seen on a desert island where a tiger roared beside him.

Spoken Clues

“Hi, I’m Popcorn. Let’s have some fun! I went from nothing to huge in the blink of an eye, or that’s how it seems to you, but there’s a lot of work in being an overnight success. Wikipedia says Popcorn’s ancestors come from Mexico, I don’t think that’s true, but maybe it is because I’ve been in many places. It’s hard to know where home is. If I got stuck on a desert island, who would I want to be with? Kylie, of course, and Lady Gaga. I’m Popcorn, and I’m here to have fun!”

Panel Question and Answer

“There was a tropical island in the clues. Have you done Survivor or a Love Island reality show?”

“I have a very strong connection to a particular island, but it’s certainly not where I found love.”

Mirrorball

Visual Clues

  • Mirrorball was measured next to a pedestal fan.
  • Mirrorball put ice cubes into a drink, before the camera panned to a certificate from the Australian Medical Association (AMA).
  • Mirrorball stood between two bodyguards on a running track as they stretched and got on their marks.
  • Mirrorball cracked out some classic disco dance moves.
  • She also stood proudly between a Mexican flag and a flag with the number 48 on it. However, a fireball saw it turn to ashes.
  • A bodyguard held a thought bubble that said, “That’s hot!”
  • Mirrorball reclined behind a piano with two framed photos on top of it, one of John Travolta and the other of Uma Thurman.

Spoken Clues

“I’m the Mirrorball, and I hate to be in the dark. Am I dirty? No, that’s someone else, so be cool okay? You don’t think I measure up? I think I do. I was on thin ice for a while, but eventually, you have to do you. As a kid, I was really competitive. As an adult, not everyone likes that but I’m sick of running someone else’s race. I’m Mirrorball and my voice will be heard!”

“I’m Mirrorball, I was born to do what I do, and my parents knew it. But when the spotlight’s not on me, I don’t react. I’m proud and determined, close to grand, in fact. Even when everything turns to ashes, I go on unharmed. When you’re in the spotlight, you can be grilled by total strangers; that’s something you can bank on. I am the Mirrorball, and now is my time to shine.”

Panel Question and Answer

“What was the significance of the framed photos of John Travolta and Uma Thurman?”

“I’m no stranger to the screen, big and small, where every day is a good time, that’s where you will find Mirrorball.”

Songs

Xanadu by Olivia Newton-John

I Wanna Dance with Somebody (Who Loves Me) by Whitney Houston

Clue Just In

“In breaking news, Mirrorball has decided to stop reflecting the light of others and to glow entirely on their own. Mirrorball has not commented publicly but has said to feel excited about the future.”

Zombie

Visual Clues

  • Air Zombie was advertising trips to India, offering the opportunity to “learn Bollywood dancing” on one sign, with another reading “Urban Transit System” (UTS).
  • Zombie held a framed photo of Masked Singer alum Nikki Webster.
  • Zombie was seen walking past some elephants, before a black cat jumped into the frame.
  • There was also a gold trophy on a first-place victory stand, before she relaxed and read a copy of Zombie Life Magazine with a headline that asked, “Do blondes have more fun?”
  • Zombie was seen standing between gravestones for Queen Victoria (1819-1901), Powderfinger (1989-2010) and Oasis (1991-2009).
  • Zombie is a drop-dead gorgeous air hostess

  • Zombie denied being wicked, with a witch flying past the screen on a broom.
  • A pink wand appeared with a bodyguard dressed as an opera singer wearing a horned helmet. However, Zombie didn’t seem to like the music.

Spoken Clues

“Zombies travel the entire world but mostly East-West. I had a life before being a Zombie and another life after. Now, I’ve turned a page, and all I want is brains, brains! Zombies love animals, but cats are too disappointing! There’s no shame in coming third, well that’s what I tell myself, but it came with a job that I would literally die for. I’m the Zombie, and I’m going to eat the competition alive!”

“I’m Zombie and my performances will live forever. I used to feel entitled but I’m not as green as I used to be… or as orange. Would you care for a baked potato? I’m a Zombie, I’m not wicked but I’m not magical either. I was once upon a time. I’m Zombie and I’d rather die than lose The Masked Singer.”

Clue Just In

“The Masked Singer Zombie has finally proven the existence of life after death. Zombie is very much alive, just in a form of life most of us wouldn’t recognise.”

Blowfly

Visual Clues

  • Blowfly’s was sitting on a scooter next to a bodyguard holding the flag of Lebanon before three babies appeared in Blowfly’s arms.
  • Blowfly was then seen playing a video game, with a framed image of what looked like an orange behind him, before he appeared performing opera in front of a lighthouse and holding up the scales of justice before a black sheep’s face appeared in a spotlight in the sky.
  • Blowfly tried to break a stick over his knee, before becoming frustrated and handing it to a bodyguard who also struggled to break it.
  • Blowfly pointed to a sign that read, “the boy with the dragon tattoo”.

  • Blowfly looked to be delivering a pizza to a doctor, but when they opened the box, they revealed a single yabby that exploded into a massive fireball.
  • The pizza motif continued when Blowfly stood outside a pizzeria advertising German sausage pizza as the special of the day.

Spoken Clues

“I’m Blowfly and you can find me all over Australia. I fought real hard to get to the top of my little hill, or am I king of the mountain? I’m never afraid to ask the tough questions or to lend a hand to anyone who needs it. I know I can be loud, maybe a bit wild and it almost cost me family some important jewellery. I’ve spent my time in the sun, including some of my darkest days, but I am a phoenix. I’m the Blowfly and I’m buzzing to win The Masked Singer.”

“I’m Blowfly, you know there’s flys like me all over the world, but I’m Aussie as. There’s nothing I like more than cruising in a big V8, or maybe a high-five. Blowflies know the highs and the lows. Those days of innocence are behind me and now I am the possessor of much wisdom. For a Blowfly, I don’t take crap from no one and that’s why I’ll win The Masked Singer.”

I love a barbie, and I also like a banquet… not at this beach, though. I hope it’s fish! I really love fish. Is a humble thong worthy of admiration? I think so, and that’s why I’ll win The Masked Singer!”

You can find me on the road and even in the air. I’m always on the move. I’ve been a scholar, I’ve also been a world champion, but not what you think. And did you know Caterpillars can jump? I’m Caterpillar, and I will take the trophy home with me!”

This is my trusty steed, far happier to see me now than in the past. I like it more than horseless carriages. Easy there, lightning. I have other plans. I wouldn’t say I was unforgettable, but I am more often forgotten than not. Still, the good people of Switzerland almost sent me flowers, golden ones, but I prefer deep purple. I am the Knight, but I shall be the little king of Masked Singer.”

Panel Question and Answer

“Did the PVC pipe hint at winning a renovation show?”

“I can tell you this much, there have been improvements in my career, but my work was never around the house.”
