The Covered Crooner

Listen to Mercedes in the Morning every Wednesday morning in the 8:00 hour for their newest segment "The Covered Crooner!" Listen as Mercedes and JC hear a variety of celebrities sing WHILE IN FULL COSTUME! Can you guess who they are based on their singing alone? Check back here every week to watch video of the latest covered crooner performance and see if you can guess who they are before they REVEAL themselves. 


Week 1-- "The Rabbit" came in studio and performed his song "All My Ex's Live In Texas" by George Strait. He gave some interesting hints-- he loves his chihuahas, he's from Canada and his life is MAGICAL. He later revealed himself to be MURRAY SAWCHUCK! 


Week 2-- "The Flamingo" BLEW US AWAY when he performed his rendition of "All My Life" by Brian McKnight. He said he is from the midwest, is a husband and father, and is a big football fan... After hearing that voice we had to rule him out as being a football player. He later revealed he was JEFF TIMMONS FROM 98 DEGREES! 



Week 3-- "The Rat" performed his very special rendition of "My Way" by Frank Sinatra. His clues were very interesting. He used to compete with Mercedes and JC. Mercedes would say he's a Fox. He has 5 reasons to wake up every morning. And last but not least, he is a dog person, but his opposite is a cat person. He later revealed himself as JOHN HUCK from Fox 5 News! 


Week 4-- "The Purple People Eater" got to perform her version of "As Long As You Love Me" by The Backstreet Boys. She was the first FEMALE contestant we had on the show. She said she gets asked about her height on a daily basis, the best people in her profession would be at Mandalay Bay this summer AND she has traveled all over the world because of her job. She was later revealed as CAROLYN SWORDS of the Las Vegas Aces! 


Week 5-- "The Alligator" was one of our tougher contestants. His clues were vague-- he lives far from downtown Las Vegas and he doesn't have pets but he donates to animal charities. He also said he performed his song "My Girl" by The Temptations multiple times... He was later revealed to be professional BMX rider RICARDO LAGUNA!


Week 6-- "The Raccoon" was even harder than the the last contestant. His clues through us for a loop-- he said he's OWNED a guitar for 20 years, Las Vegas is the 14th city he's lived in and he uses a microphone... He chose a country song to sing which threw us off even a little more, George Strait's "Check Yes or No". He was later revealed to be our good friend and color commentator for the Vegas Golden Knights, SHANE HNIDY! 


Week 7-- "Yogi Bear" was the tiniest of contestants we've had on The Covered Crooner. She said she lives next door to her parents, she prefers water skiing to skiing in the snow and she loves women. She did her rendition of Whitney Houston's "I Wanna Dance With Somebody."
