At the Disco's recent hit “Hey Look Ma, I Made It,” is one of the busier performances on the series in terms of its choreography and ambitions. Fox mask begins the performance backstage in his dressing area, reflecting on the friends that have come and gone, and pairs a softer, subtler intro with this introspection.
But as soon as he arrives at stage, flanked by dancers wearing fox ears, the song quickly escalates in intensity, as does Brady's commanding performance. Brady's velvety voice pairs perfectly with the beloved Christmas classic and his ability to get the crowd worked up and engaged with even a non-traditional concert song shows his true command of the stage from start to finish.
In his rendition of Bobby Brown's “Every Little Step,” Brady exudes charm and charisma, all while turning in some of his smoothest vocals. That, of course, is all before we mention the absolutely perfect choreography, which features some of the most period-specific and artfully mastered dance moves not just from the background dancers, but from any contestant in The Masked Singer's brief history.
On a sparsely decorated stage, featuring a single graceful female dancer, Brady turns in one of his most moving performances of his tenure on the series. Brady's voice is perfectly suited for this song, which allows him to show the true range of his long-held notes, high vocals, and crooning capabilities.
In his first performance on the series, Fox came out of the gate strong with a unique take on the early 2000s hit “This Love” by Maroon 5. Accompanied by a similarly steampunk styled dancer, Fox put a far more soulful spin on the love song while also tapping into his funky side.
Right off the bat, judge Robin Thick noted that Fox clearly had a performer's stage presence. Speaking of freestyling, the Fox's final performance on The Masked Singer is the true encapsulation of the breadth and immensity of Brady's star power.
Halfway through the song, the Fox suddenly begins freestyle rapping, allowing Brady to tap into his background in improvisation, both musically and comedically. Tongue in cheek references to the history of the season and the judges' guesses at his identity, paired with some high energy choreography, show that Brady is entirely in his element as a performer.
