Watch ‘Masked Singer’ Judges Perform Spice Girls’ ‘Wannabe’ in Honor of Girl Group Night

Mr. Nimbus | 04/23/2024

Rita Ora, Robin Thicke, Ken Jeong and Jenny McCarthy-Wahlberg just really, really, really wanna zigazig-ah.

In honor of The Masked Singer‘s “Girl Group Night” episode, airing Wednesday (April 24), the four judges banded together to deliver an energetic performance of the Spice Girls ’90s hit “Wannabe,” as shared exclusively with Billboard ahead of time.

In the clip, the more experienced vocalists on the panel — Ora and Thicke — took on most of the singing, while McCarthy-Wahlberg and Jeong made for the perfect hype-people to deliver the track’s repeated Ha! Ha! Ha!s. “I’ll tell you what I want, what I really, really want/ So tell me what you want, what you really, really want,” the group belted, starting the song in separate areas of the stage and coming together as one by the end as dancers in flashy bird costumes performed behind them.

Released in 1996, “Wannabe” was the perfect track for the judges to perform in honor of Masked Singer‘s girl group-themed episode. The song debuted on the Billboard Hot 100 in January 1997 and, almost exactly one month later, peaked at No. 1, where it stayed for four weeks.

Wednesday’s episode follows one week after Masked Singer‘s Queen Night episode, which saw the unmasking of Ugly Sweater, aka Charlie Wilson, and Starfish, The Office‘s Kate Flannery. Past season 11 contestants whose identities have been revealed include Kevin Hart (Book); restauranteur Joe Bastianich (Spaghetti & Meatballs); TV personalities Savannah Chrisley (Afghan Hound), Billy Bush (Sir Lion) and Colton Underwood (Lovebird); NFL hall of famer DeMarcus Ware (Koala); and singer Sisqó (Lizard).
