Clues[]

Week Clue
1 "Am I a Puppet? Yes and no. I love to entertain, but nobody is pulling my strings, and you don't need the Magna Carta to tell you that. We Puppets aren't perfect, I can't deny that. That's why I believe in "do what I say, not what I do". That makes me very fit for my job. I have to admit, I do love to sing. Puppets have been know to do that in the past, maybe as far back as 1964. Ties have played an important part in my life, and not just because I like to look good. Normally I'm a nice guy Puppet, but on The Masked Singer I'm taking no prisoners."
2 "There has been magic in what I do, although granting wishes isn't my usual job. I could do it until the cows come home. Am I the sought who flies by the seat of his pants? Well I have walked to the beat of a different drummer. Am I wise? I have been in the past, when I took my inspiration from The Old Testament. But don't judge me for that. I've been the bridesmaid many times, and if I get to be the bride taking many hands in marriage, I couldn't be a happier Puppet. Except when I finally win The Masked Singer."
3 "I have a deep love for what I do. The best bit is interacting with the public. I get even more out of it then they do. Of course, I do it all on my terms. I don't follow anyone. I have many strings to my bow, but I find that four are usually enough. I like the tropical heat. in fact, the sun has no visible effect on me at all. No sunburn for me. I've been many things in my life. Morphing from one thing to another. Some quite ugly. I hope the other Masked Singers never wake up, but The Puppet is stalking them."
4 "The other Masked Singers are on the run from me. They'd be easier to catch in my car. A Puppet's life is a partnership, I can't do things on my own. My main partner is older than me, and I mean a lot older. Millions of years. You have to be fit to do what I do. I'm the hardest working Puppet in the business. I fight to find the fountain of youth. I'm a lot less than a pretty face. But it doesn't matter when you wear a mask, because I am The Puppet who cannot die, and I'm not going to die on stage tonight."
5 "In a Puppets life every moment is fun an upbeat. Even if it is your wish, don't have pity on me. I have sat in judgement on others, but never been judged myself. Gino. I love all jungle animals, elephants and lions mostly, and many not in the jungle too, like the kangaroo. I am suited to many roles, adaptable. A Puppet with many, many strings. I'm not afraid to play it ugly, but I don't want to scare the children. Do the other Masked Singers fear me? I hope so."
6 "My early career was in the shadows, underplayed. Then pow, all eyes were on me around the world. Now my work has a new base. I'm not shy, I can't afford to be. But at least I'm not heading south anymore. I've made some big moves in my life, and there are big moves to come. I used to be a Puppet of the night, but things change and now I sing a rainbow. This Puppet will sing up something big tonight. No strings attached."

("I have never planned my career. I prefer to follow the opportunities as they occur and let them open me up to life and to new experiences. I believe that kindness in everything is my only guide.")
