“Finding out that the opportunity was very meaningful to Barry and Michael, being fans of the show and them being performers and really wanting to compete on this thing, I was in a position of needing to be supportive and part of it to make it happen,” Christopher said. “They’re gracious enough and we have a long enough history, they know my limitations, that they carried me through. And at the end of the day, it was a lot of fun.”
Despite his perceived limitations, Mike said Christopher did “a really, really did a great job and we’re very proud of him and thankful.”
Mike also appreciated that their costumes allowed for the three of them to express themselves, which isn’t always an opportunity afforded to Masked Singer competitors.
“We could jump around, we had choreography, we could move and dance and use our arms and parts,” he said. “If you watch the show, you know in a lot of cases that is just not happening for the person in the mask. You might as well be in a bubble.”
Thankfully, it didn’t go unnoticed by the panel.
“In fact, Nicole [Scherzinger], when we were finished with our first number, she actually mentioned the choreography a couple of times,” Mike said. “She said, ‘Oh, the singing and the harmony and the choreography!’ I was like, ‘Phew!’ I’m not much of a dancer!”
