Scroll down to see the winner and their identity. But WARNING: MAJOR SPOILERS ahead!
Yes, with a season of epic performances under his belt, the Fox won it all. And after the Flamingo (who placed third) was revealed to be Adrienne Bailon from The Real and The Cheetah Girls, and the Rottweiler (who placed second) was revealed to be singer Chris Daughtry the Fox was unmasked last.
Watch his SHOCKING reveal below!
Just as we predicted, the Fox was Wayne Brady. All the clues lined up perfectly to be him and you just can’t mistake that showmanship and voice. But the main clues that drove us to think it was Wayne Brady were all the nods to improv, Whose Line Is It Anyway?, his multiple Emmy awards, and his daughter. And in the end, we were right! (And I was right in guessing he’d win the Golden Mask!)
The Fox brought his A-game all season with great performances every time he took the stage. My personal favorite performance from the Fox was “Tennessee Whiskey” because we finally got to hear him sing a stripped down song. There were no frills so he had a chance to shine. I really think that performance is what sealed his place in the Finale too. Leading up to it, this song made him stand out among the rest of the singers left.
But on the other hand, I also loved “Hey Look Ma, I Made It!” The upbeat songs were his strongest asset throughout the competition because he just had so much fun with them. He really dominated both sides of the competition, bring charisma and an amazing voice, which led to him becoming The Masked Singer winner! And, in my opinion, he deserved it.
Congratulations to Wayne Brady on the big win and the Golden Mask! The Masked Singer will be back for season three starting on February 2nd, after the Super Bowl.
