Behind the Viking mask in season 2 of the Masked Singer UK TV show is none other than a-ha’s Morten Harket, which was clear from the first song he sang actually. Harket decided to join the show after the COVID-19 pandemic had wiped a major tour off the foreseeable calendar, which suddenly opened the door to other types of requests.
The Masked Singer is a British reality singing competition television series (ITV) based on the Masked Singer franchise which originated from the South Korean version of the show King of Mask Singer.
For those who haven’t seen Morten Harket’s performances as Viking, you can catch up on YouTube, including of course a rendition of “Take on me”.
And here’s the Viking is Unmasked! video and extra.
Since you’re here …
… we have a small favour to ask. More people are reading Side-Line Magazine than ever but advertising revenues across the media are falling fast. Unlike many news organisations, we haven’t put up a paywall – we want to keep our journalism as open as we can - and we refuse to add annoying advertising. So you can see why we need to ask for your help.
Side-Line’s independent journalism takes a lot of time, money and hard work to produce. But we do it because we want to push the artists we like and who are equally fighting to survive.
If everyone who reads our reporting, who likes it, helps fund it, our future would be much more secure. For as little as 5 US$, you can support Side-Line Magazine – and it only takes a minute. Thank you.
