The Masked Singer Finale is finally upon us. With the Night Angel, Frog, and Turtle fighting it out for the Golden Mask, we are excited to see who wins it all. And we’re sure there are some epic performances to end on a high note!

Below is our recap of The Masked Singer Finale for season 3.

Who is the Frog?

Frog performs “Bad Boys For Life” by P. Diddy in The Masked Singer Finale

Clues: The Frog said the first time he walked onto the stage, he felt “so lost,” but the more he pushed himself, the more he felt like he was in “exactly the right place.” On The Masked Singer, he’s proven himself as a rapper! A post-it that says “NO LIMITS” is on the wall while Frog goes through memories of the show. This experience let him get back to his “first love,” which is music. He also mentions that he’s a father to a female “tadpole.”

Performance: Frog did what he does best with this performance of “Bad Boys For Life” and that’s dance and command the audience! Everyone was dancing along with him the entire song. It’s clear that he’s having a lot of fun on that stage! And who can blame him? I don’t think this was a winning performance, but it wasn’t a bad one by any means.

Judges’ Guesses: Romeo, Kid Cudi, MC Hammer

Who is the Turtle?

Turtle performs “Before You Go” by Lewis Capaldi in The Masked Singer Finale

Clues: The Turtle had no idea “how much this competition would change” him as an artist. He says that in his career, he had a lot of “almost moments.” Despite the ups and downs, he’s been resilient. Turtle now has a “Mrs. Turtle” and wants to show his future little turtles to “keep going until you get the win.”

Performance: Taking a note from the Rottweiler’s playbook last season, Turtle sang another Lewis Capaldi hit, “Before You Go.” His voice was so tender and pitch perfect. This isn’t an easy song to cover either. Turtle’s runs were on point and we even got to hear his signature falsetto. Vocally, this was one of his best so far.

Judges’ Guesses: Jesse McCartney, Nick Jonas, Nick Carter

Who is the Night Angel?

Night Angel performs “River Deep Mountain High” by Tina Turner in The Masked Singer Finale

Clues: The Night Angel claimed she was “terrified” when the show started. She has been able to take that fear and “channel” it since then. Night Angel said that when she didn’t find success as a solo artist, she “developed other businesses.” She mentions she’s a mother and wanted to chase her own dreams. She’s here to win for all women, but especially for her children.

Performance: With her best performance of this season, the Night Angel tore the stage up singing “River Deep, Mountain High” by Tina Turner. She channeled that Frog energy! And this really felt like a winning performance. Her voice was strong and I loved the back-up dancers around her. Plus, that final note she held forever was INSANE!

Judges’ Guesses: Kandi Burruss, Taraji P. Henson, Dawn Robinson

Our second correct prediction of the night! I was really rooting for him to win this one, but I’ll take second place. Jesse is an insanely talented guy, both vocally and for his stage presence. I hope this will be the start of seeing more from him!
