First musician is kicked off celebrity talent show 'The Masked Singer'

Welcome back to The Masked Singer, the celebrity talent show even freaky-deakier than the Jacksons’ “Torture” music video from 1984.

Every week a costumed mystery contestant reveals his or her true identity, and following the previous unmaskings of Antonio “The Hippo” Brown, Tommy “The Pineapple” Chong, Terry “The Deer” Bradshaw, Margaret “The Poodle” Cho, Tori “The Unicorn” Spelling, and Ricki “The Raven” Lake, this week’s eliminated singer was actually a member of the Jackson family.

No, people, it wasn’t Michael Jackson’s older brother, Tito. Maybe he’ll be on Season 2. (Yes, this show has already been renewed by Fox.) And no, it wasn’t Rebbie Jackson, though I’d love to see her compete next season dressed as  a centipede!

This week’s out-of-this-world reveal was actually the Alien, La Toya Jackson, looking fabulous and fit at age 62 and sounding slightly better than she did on her own minor 1984 hit, 'Heart Don’t Lie'. 

“I really have to truly be honest with all of you. The reason I did this, actually, is because people have a tendency to prejudge you and the way you sing, and they compare you to other people in your family. I just wanted to do it and see how far I'd go,” Jackson told host Nick Cannon and the judges, all of whom were utterly stunned because they clearly hadn’t picked up on La Toya’s previous, obvious clue about her stint on the 2007 VH1 reality show Armed & Famous.
