The dinosaur wins: Pop singer Sasha (“If You Believe”) has won the ProSieben show “The Masked Singer” disguised as a dinosaur. The 49-year-old received the most votes from the audience in the final vote on Tuesday evening. Then he took off his mask – it was a dinosaur with pajamas and braces. “I’m very, very happy and relieved,” the singer admitted. “My thing was like this: Either out immediately. Or the final.”
That the dinosaur was Sasha wasn’t a big surprise. Many viewers had bet on him. There were all kinds of signs of this. The dinosaur served very different styles of music, from ballads by Celine Dion to hip-hop by the Sugarhill Gang. Sasha himself is also considered versatile – he once completely reinvented himself as the rockabilly singer Dick Brave. “I already enjoyed that as a child. Slipping into different characters or imitating different performers,” he said after his triumph.
In “The Masked Singer” celebrities sing in elaborate stage costumes. Only when viewers choose them from the show or they win the show do they have to take off their masks. It was the fourth season. A fifth should be seen in the fall.
