The Masked Singer Reveals Twisted Sister’s Dee Snider As the Doll

Dee Snider, frontman of the famed Long Island metal band Twisted Sister, was revealed as the celebrity behind the doll costume on the Fox competition show The Masked Singer on Wednesday night.

After his masked performance of Elvis Presley’s “Jailhouse Rock” and the audience and judges’ suspenseful chant of “Take it off,” the Baldwin and Freeport native removed the cumbersome doll head to reveal himself as the man beneath the sparkly blue dress and heels.

“Let me tell you, Gene Simmons, Iggy Pop – no one could work pumps like I did,” Snider said, lifting one foot wearing a sparkly black heel. “And by the way ladies, it’s like riding a bike. I wore them in the ‘70s, and it all came back to me once I put them on.”

On The Masked Singer, a panel of celebrities tries to guess the famous person behind the flashy costume after the contestant performs a song and offers clues about who they are. The show’s panelists, Jenny McCarthy, Nicole Scherzinger, Robin Thicke, and Ken Jeong, did not guess Snider correctly and were pleasantly surprised at the big reveal.

“I was a huge fan of ‘We’re Not Gonna Take It,’ one of the great rock songs of all time, of history, and I always loved your wardrobe, your style, and everything,” Thicke said.

“You are a legend, sir. It is an honor,” Jeong added.

Snider proceeded to sing the famous chorus of “We’re Not Gonna Take It” along with the crowd to close out the show.
