Fozzy’s Chris Jericho has officially been unveiled as “Bride” on Fox’s “The Masked Singer.” The frontman performed a number of songs on the show including covers of Billy Idol‘s “White Wedding,“ Smash Mouth‘s “All Star,” and Walk The Moon‘s “Shut Up And Dance.“
Before the singer was unmasked, several clues were shared:
“Dearly beloved, we gather here tonight for Hall Of Fame Night, but I vow to rock. I’m always telling feel-good stories, but let me explain how I ended up here, alone, at this junkyard wedding. I have a rugged personality, I live on the road selling out arenas and I have an appetite for destroying things. So I’m notorious for being in some of the messiest feuds. I’ve gone the solo route, and I’ve come here to master. Master a new commitment with all you ‘Masked Singer’ freaks. So tonight, here comes the bride!”
Jericho told TV Insider the following about the show:
“I really enjoyed the whole concept of the show and the whole concept of character even. That’s something that I really thought was kind of cool. Even when we were discussing originally what the character and costume would be, I wanted to be something opposite of what you would expect Chris Jericho to be wearing. That’s what it was right out of the gate. It really was a lot of fun across the board.”
“I’m a real competitive person, so whenever I do something like this, I don’t do anything for fun. I do it to win. [Laughs] But having said that, I did have a blast. And once again, to do the Bride was exactly what I wanted. I wanted it to be something completely opposite of what you might expect and really focus on the element of fooling people as to who was really behind the pink mask, so to speak.
But it was great. It was a lot of fun [the] first week. I was angry the second week, but there might be some redemption for the Bride upcoming, so either way, it was a blast, and I enjoyed it. And it was an easy show to do because there was no hair, there was no makeup, and there [was] no costume.
My costume was a pair of gym shorts and a muscle shirt and a fan around my neck so I could breathe inside that thing, sweating my ass off inside of that. As far as a Hollywood show, it was very, very easy: just step into the dinosaur and go out there and sing your ass off for a minute and a half. It was a lot of fun.”
