She even doubled down on Twitter saying she truly thought that’s who it could be. The premiere episode had a lot of great performances. This season even has its first set of singers with two Snow Owls changing things up.
Fans Responded To Nicole Scherzinger Telling Her What They Thought
Nicole Scherzinger had a pretty confident vibe about her guess, but fans weren’t having it. One said, Nicole Scherzinger needs to be kicked off the show. Mary J. Blige, really?” Another said they didn’t want her, “to ever speak Mary J. Blige’s name again.”
According to The Sun, fans don’t think Mary J. Blige would be on the show. Fans also felt Nicole was insulting their queen a bit. One tweeted, “I was dissappointed when she said that because popcorn has a seasoned voice. Mary J still has it.” Other fans thought she might be right with one saying, “specially the New York setting in the clue package. At first I was getting Sex And The City vibes with those references..at first thinking it’s Sarah Jessica Parker, but that’s not her voice.”
Fans Continued To Come After Her On Social Media
Nicole Scherzinger continued to get tweets addressing her guess. Another fan said, “Nicole gotta go. That was not Aunt Mary.” Some fans even demanded a reprimand. A fan tweeted, “It’s not Mary J. Blige, Nicole needs to get slapped.”
