Musician Angelo Kelly (38) left the music advice show “The Masked Singer” because of the coronavirus pandemic – he made that clear the day after he left.

The trips from his place of residence in Ireland to Cologne were simply no longer responsible. In a conversation with the German Press Agency, Kelly talks about the bad feeling that crept over him, how he learned to lie and why he is very sure about a masked celebrity.

Question: What prompted you to get out of The Masked Singer?

Answer: With the first broadcast, the circumstances still felt normal – at least here in Europe. It was just a frenzy and was fun. In the second, the Corona theme became much bigger and it also had a direct impact on the production, for example there was no longer an audience. I already had a bad feeling about coming back.

I have the special situation that I have been living in the country in Ireland with my family for eight years. For me, this is always a great trip, during which I have to cross borders and through heavily frequented places. I just realized: I can’t go on like this.

Question: This means that the corona virus has put a spanner in the works.

Answer: Yes, but that’s the way many artists are at the moment. There were only two options: stay in Germany for four or five weeks – or stop making the shipment. And during this time it is very important to me to be with my family. That is a priority. I’m very lucky that I don’t have a tour right now. I recently finished a big tour with my siblings.

Question: Did you also hide your participation in the show from the siblings?

Answer: Except for my wife, I couldn’t tell anyone! But it would have become more and more difficult. After the first broadcast, there was an unbelievable amount of news and everyone wrote: It’s you! I had to learn to lie for the first time in my life.

Question: Did you also have to learn to rap? Isn’t that your music direction?

Answer: It was important to me to play a character that was as far away from me as possible. That’s why we made it up. It was a challenge, definitely. I had to practice properly. But that was also a reason to participate: I wanted to be able to do a few more things after the show than before.

Question: Do you have a tip for the other masks as to who it could be? Now you can guess.

Answer: I’ve guessed who the dragon could be from the very first broadcast: I think that’s a buddy of mine. Now that I’m out, I’m going to bombard him with WhatsApp messages, of course. I will enjoy it. He can’t say anything.

PERSONAL: Angelo Kelly (38) became known and famous among the family band Kelly Family. As a little blond angel, he stormed the charts with his siblings. In the past few years, the musician has blossomed from a nestling into the head of the family. At the ProSieben show “The Masked Singer” he had started incognito in the costume of a rapping cockroach.
