Judges Reportedly Stormed Off Set When Rudy Giuliani Was Revealed as Contestant on ‘Masked Singer’

‘Masked Singer’ judges Ken Jeong and Robin Thicke reportedly stormed off set after Rudy Giuliani was revealed as one of the contestants.

The show brings on celebrities in elaborate costumes and masks to perform in a singing competition. The contestant is only revealed after being voted off or winning the entire thing.

According to a report from Deadline, Giuliani was unmasked during an episode taping last week for the new season.

“Deadline hears that while Jeong and Thicke exited (they eventually returned), fellow judges Jenny McCarthy and Nicole Scherzinger remained onstage. They bantered with Giuliani, a controversial figure for pressing what is widely derided as a baseless claim that the 2020 presidential election was stolen from his client Donald Trump,” the report says.

Deadline did not reveal what episode Giuliani was eliminated in or what his costume was — to avoid spoilers.

“We aren’t revealing which costume Rudy wore or what his swan song was — his exit episode won’t air until next month — so you can still revel in his reveal. The theme of the new season is ‘The Good, The Bad and The Cuddly’; your political affiliation determines which category Giuliani fits,” the Deadline report said.

The show previously came under fire for allowing Sarah Palin to compete in March 2020 while dressed as a bear.

Though the media had a fit over her appearance, the judges remained on set and kept their composure.

Thicke may not have much room to be protesting other people for being “offensive,” as his song “Blurred Lines” is about date rape and the model in the video, Emily Ratajkowski, has accused him of groping her without her consent.

“I pushed my chin forward and shrugged, avoiding eye contact, feeling the heat of humiliation pump through my body,” Ratajkowski said of the video shoot. “I didn’t react – not really, not like I should have.”
