Eurovision UK commentator Graham Norton hinted that a familiar face, A1’s Ben Adams, was under the mask of one of Norway’s performers on Saturday night.
Subwoolfer took to the stage to perform the catchy hit Give That Wolf A Banana, which many fans predicted could become a summer hit shortly.
But it was recently revealed that one of the duos was none other than British 00s pop star Ben, from the band A1.
Graham appeared to confirm this on Saturday night, disappointing fans on Twitter.
When the mysterious duo took to the stage and performed, they hid their identities under golden wolf masks, also wearing smart suits and trainers to complete the look.

Graham told viewers: “So we think the shorter one is Ben, Ben Adams of the popular band A1. Yeah!”
The vocals of either duo sounded similar to Ben’s, and viewers certainly thought so when they took to Twitter to share their thoughts.
One fan commented after the performance: “I had a life size poster of Ben from A1 when I was a teenager. My mind was blown. I really hope he does. part of the Norwegian action.”
Another fan tweeted: “I hope God the little wolf is Ben from A1,” as a third said: “Wait, so one of these people is Ben from A1?”
A fourth fan asked: “No way, is that really Ben from A1???”
The comments continued to come in as well, with another reading: “I think it was him, he wasn’t at the last few gigs A1 did but just Christian, Mark and Paul.”
Another tweet read: “I can’t believe Ben Adams from boyband A1 could be one of the guys dressed up for the Norwegian song, ‘Give That Wolf a Banana.’
Ahead of the final in Turin, a friend of the A1 star Ben told the Mirror he was sure it was him – as fans have predicted this is the case.
Ben’s friends told us: “I’ve known him for over 10 years. I spoke to him the other day and he still won’t confirm or deny if he’s a Subwoolfer. But… I’ve heard the track and I could be wrong, but it sure sounds like him. “
Ben, 40, lives in Oslo with his fiancée Norwegian model Sara Skjoldnes and their eight-month-old daughter.
Eurovision Song Contest 2022 is available to watch on BBC iPlayer and BBC One.
