‘The Masked Singer’ Winner Amber Riley Looks Back on Her Journey on The Show
The winner of The Masked Singer was finally revealed during Wednesday night’s season finale. The Harp turned out to be actress and singer Amber Riley who recently posted on Instagram a closer look at her journey on the show.
Amber Riley Reflects on Her ‘The Masked Singer’ Journey
Season eight of The Masked Singer has officially concluded with Riley revealed as the season’s big winner. As the season came to a close, the Glee star reflected on her time on the show and what made her want to join.
“I’ve always been a big fan of the show, so I really wanted to do it. Because everyone that went on there just talked about how much fun they had and how much they enjoyed it.” Riley said. “I had a ball doing that show and the journey was a more emotional one than I actually thought that it was going to be.”
Everyone who participated in the show found it difficult to keep their involvement a secret. Riley said it was very hard to “win and have that tremendous moment,” just to return home and have to “act like it didn’t happen.”
Nevertheless, her journey on the show became one of the best experiences the singer had, and will remain unforgettable. She also showed how dedicated she is to her work, and keeps busy with her new docuseries The Black Beauty Effect. The film centers on Black business owners that disrupted the beauty industry by developing skin, cosmetics, and hair products that can handle various hair textures.
Runner-Up Wilson Phillips Also Shared Their Experience
Meanwhile, the band Wilson Phillips, comprised of Carnie, Wendy, and Chynna Wilson turned out to be The Lambs, who finished in second place. The Wilson Phillips members all agreed that there is a big difference between performing on the show than in one of their concerts.
“Well, you’ve got so many more elements going on with this show that you have to think about at once.” Wendy said. “When you’re in a regular concert, the only thing you’re really thinking about is your pitch. I don’t really have choreography in our shows.”
When it came to donning the costumes they were performing in, the group members all had varied experiences. The Wilson Phillips members said it was incredibly difficult to perform while wearing the costumes since they were heavy, impaired their eyesight, and made breathing difficult.
