The Snow Owls — a pair of singing birds — have gone viral since the start of the show’s fourth season. Clues — which you can read about here — suggest the duo are a pair that help make dreams come true and consider themselves “birds of ‘Pray.’”
- “Who is that? You can try and figure out who we are, but as for who is more talented, it’s a tie.”
- The birds said people haven’t seen them together in awhile, and that the singing together represents a family reunion.
So the internet has run with those clues and really think it’s Donny and Marie Osmond.
The Masked Singer Popcorn is Cindy Lauper! Write it down! The Snow Owls are Donnie and Marie Osmond! Write it down!— 𝔹𝕚𝕝𝕝𝕪 𝔽𝕠𝕣𝕖𝕓𝕒𝕔𝕜 (@bforeback) October 9, 2020
Of course, there are counterarguments. Others believe that the Snow Owls are actually Clint Black and Lisa Hartman. I also wrote a piece for Deseret.com about how the Snow Owls might be Chip and Joanna Gaines.
Plus, Donny Osmond already appeared on “The Masked Singer.” He finished in second place as the Peacock. So we haven’t seen a repeat performer. That said, we never saw someone unmask themself until this season when Mickey Rourke did it as the Gremlin.
Donny Osmond told me in March 2019 that the show requires a certain type of celebrity.
- “It’s not like the typical show where anonymous people want to be famous. It’s famous people wanting to be anonymous. What really appealed to me is that all 12 people check their resumes at the door. We all started over. And it didn’t matter how many gold records or films or books. We all were the same. After 56 years of show business, you want to find things that are challenging and fun. And this was definitely challenging because I had nothing to lean back on. I was just someone on stage, one of 12.
