The famous masked contest “The Masked Singer” is succeeding in the world and there are several Eurovision artists who have hidden behind their masks. Last night, during the semifinal of the Spanish version of the contest, two artists were unmasked, both Eurovision stars: Pastora Soler (Spain 2012) and Al Bano (Italy 1976 and 1985).
A few weeks ago, we talked about who could hide behind the Peacock mask. Social networks were divided between Pastora Soler and Ruth Lorenzo. But, throughout the program, the clues about the peacock made it clearer that Pastora Soler was behind the mask.
Finally, the Peacock was unmarked last night and, indeed, Pastora Soler was behind the mask. The artist was very happy to have participated in this contest and she said goodbye to her with an impressive version of “I will always love you”.
But the great surprise of the night came with the unmasking of the Sunflower. The name of Al Bano was on the lips of the jury from the first program, however, they could not believe that the Italian star was participating in this contest. In fact, the singer confessed that he accepted to participate in the program because his world tour is currently cancelled due to the pandemic. “In other circumstances it would be impossible for me,” said the singer.
Al Bano has participated in the Festival di Sanremo 15 times, achieving the triumph in 1984. Futhermore, he has represented Italy at Eurovision with his ex-wife, Romina Power, in 1976 and 1985, achieving seventh position on both occasions.
The Italian star said goodbye singing an amazing version of “Nessum dorma” that left the public speechless, showing that at his 77 years old he still retains the incredible voice that has helped him achieve so much success worldwide.
