Could James Hetfield of Metallica be the “Thingamabob” from The Masked Singer? Well, as shared by Loudwire, comedian/actor, and a judge of the show, Ken Jeong thinks the masked individual could be.

You might be wondering first just what is The Masked Singer? The show is currently on its seventh season and is essentially a musical talent show where individuals come on stage dressed in an array of comical and fun outfits; however, the catch comes in the form of these musicians actually being talented artists/celebrities. The judges and audience don’t know at first who is under each respective mask/costume, so the individual can only be judged based off their performance.

On a recent episode of The Masked Singer, an individual who goes by the name of Thingamabob took to the stage and played “Wanted Dead Or Alive” by Bon Jovi. Thingamabob’s performance was well received by both the judges and the audience.

As Thingamabob is being interviewed on stage – the individual’s voice masked as to hide their identity – Jeong speaks up about who he thinks the person is under the costume.

“This would be amazing if this was the lead vocalist of Metallica, James Hetfield. Because think about it for a second, he is huge. If you look at the clue package the bell reminds me of their famous song ‘For Whom The Bell Tolls.'”

As far as to what could be a big indicator has to who the artist is, Thingamabob has taken precautions to hide that clue. When it comes to masking his voice, Thingamabob happened to have shared the following: “I want my voice to be the biggest clue.” This comes after the individual shared that rock music is something they grew up with and that transformed them.

Who do you think Thingamabob is? Could it be James Hetfield of Metallica? Guess we’ll have to watch more of The Masked Singer to find out! You can check out Thingamabob’s performance below:
