Everything We Know So Far About The Masked Singer's Alien
The Masked Singer Australia may have only just gotten started, but already the question on everyone's lips is which celebs are behind the extravagant costumes. One singer who certainly set the stage alight during the premiere episode was 'Alien', as they are currently simply known. Not only did they perform their first song of the competition, 'Born This Way' by Lady Gaga, but us viewers were also treated to our first official clues as to who the 'out of this world' performer might be.
Here's everything we currently know about Alien:
- People think they "appeared out of nowhere", but they had actually trained for years prior to their success
- While they initially "loved the attention" of fame, "being probed" ended up becoming "too much to bear"
- A poster of the Spice Girls and five hula hoops can be seen decorating their house
Based on these clues, as well as the Alien's vocal quality, many are speculating they may be none other than Nikki Webster.
Nikki shot to fame when she starred in the opening ceremony of the 2000 Olympic Games at the tender age at 13. Her sudden rise to stardom would align with Alien's claim that people think they came out of nowhere. She is also someone who has lived a far more private life over the last decade, which seems to match up with what Alien said about the pressures of being in the public eye. Lastly, eagle-eyed viewers have questioned whether the hula hoop symbolise the Olympic rings. As for the Spice Girls poster, it's possible it could simply be a reflection of the time period Alien grew up in, and Nikki herself was certainly a child of the 1990s'.
While we will have and see whether the audience consensus of Alien being Nikki Webster's alter-ego is correct, we know we're going to enjoy the suspense in the meantime.
