UPDATE: The Masked Singer Week 6

This week it was all but confirmed that Donny Osmond is indeed Peacock!

Each contestant had to bring out a "show and tell" item. Peacock brought out a shoulder length wig and said that wearing that wig got him thrown in jail once.

Well...it just so happens that the wig was identical to the one that Donny wore while starring in the Andrew Lloyd Webber musical Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat. In that musical, his character, while wearing the wig, is thrown in jail! 

You can now be certain that when Peacock's mask comes off, it will be Donny Osmond standing there on The Masked Singer stage! 

UPDATE: The Masked Singer Week 3

When The Masked Singer debuted last night on FOX, the very first contestant, who was dressed as a peacock, had everyone on social media certain that it was former teen idol Donny Osmond.

What made them think this? Well, there were some clues given that made it seem as if it really could have been Donny.

The clues: 

Height 5'9": Yes, Donny is 5'9"

The peacock is shown with purple neck feathers. Donny's favorite color? Purple.

When peacock was five years old he walked onto a stage for the first time. Donny did the same on The Andy Williams Show.

"Putting on a show is in my DNA," the peacock said. Osmond, one of the Osmond Brothers, has a family full of singing talent, including sister Marie. 

Pulling out a deck of cards, there was an illusion to Vegas. Osmond is a familar Vegas act.

"It's probably been a while since your mom had a poster of me on her bedroom wall," he said. In his heydey as a teen idol, all of the teen magazines had pull-out posters of Osmond that adorned the walls of fans all over the world. 

"As my dear friend Michael Jackson told me, if you're going to reinvent yourself you have to become someone the world has never seen before," said the peacock. Osmond said something similar about Jackson in a lengthy TV interview with Piers Morgan. 

The clues seem like they are really pointing to Osmond, but what about the voice?
