The Masked Dancer continued on Monday night with six more masked celebrities shaking their booty to try and impress the judges to advance into the next round of the competition. However, for Beetroot it would not be enough.
Monday night saw Llama, Scarecrow, Zip, Beetroot, and Knickerbocker Glory all take to the stage. After all the celebs danced both Beetroot and Knickerbocker Glory failed to impress the viewers and went into the dance-off.
Knickerbocker Glory danced to Pointer Sisters classic ‘I’m So Excited’ and Beetroot performed to Elle King’s ‘Exes and Ohs.’ After both dances, the judges decided Knickerbocker Glory had more to offer and Beetroot’s time was up.
Host Joel Dommett returned to get the unmasking underway. When unmasked, Beetroot was revealed to be celebrity burlesque performer Dita Von Teese.
“I thought it would be fun to do something unexpected and out of character for me… I’ve never done anything like this, and I’m not a competitive person, but I knew it would be hilarious,” Von Teese said, following the unmasking. “I also knew people wouldn’t expect me to be under the mask.”
The Masked Dancer continues on Tuesday night at 7:30 pm on ITV and the ITV Hub.
