Only one celebrity can win each season of The Masked Singer which sometimes leads to disappointment. There have been several fan-favorite competitors that have failed to win the competition, leading superfans of the show to call it a robbery. Check out the What’s Hot Video below where we rank the five biggest robberies in ‘Masked Singer’ history.

5 Celebrities That Were Robbed On ‘The Masked Singer’

The Butterfly

Everyone was falling in love with The Butterfly on The Masked Singer after she showed off her incredible vocal abilities. She wowed everyone with her first performance of “Bang Bang” and it was clear that she was a professional singer. People were so shocked when she was eliminated in season two after going up against The Thingamajig in a head to head battle. 


Some of the judges correctly guessed that it was Destiny’s Child member Michelle Williams under the mask which made this even more of a robbery. Destiny’s Child was one of the best selling girl groups of all time. An incredible singer like Michelle should have gone way farther in the competition according to die hard fans of the show. 

The Kitty

Audiences fell in love with The Kitty when she competed on season three. She constantly spoke about how the experience was helping her grow as a person and allow her to step out of the box she had been put in since a very young age. When The Kitty was eliminated from the competition after putting on show-stopping performances week after week, everyone was stunned that it was actually ‘AGT’ runner-up Jackie Evancho under the mask. 

She explained that ever since being on ‘AGT’ she has been put into a bubble or a box with people always associating her with being a 10-year-old opera singer. The Masked Singer was a chance for her to break out of that image and many feel like she was robbed of fully doing that and should have been in the finale. 

The Rottweiler

The Rottweiler certainly proved every week that his vocal abilities went beyond what some of the other contestants could do. Fans figured out pretty quickly that it was American Idol alum, Chris Daughtry, under the mask because of his unique tone. Unfortunately for Chris, he had some stiff competition on the show from Wayne Brady who was The Fox. Wayne is more of a showman and performer while Chris is more of a top-tier vocalist. The Rottweiler was actually declared as the runner-up of the show which came as a bit of a disappointment to those that have been following him since his American Idol days. 


Getting booted off of two talent competition shows might sting a little. His American Idol elimination was already so shocking to the entire world after the judges had predicted him as the winner. Many felt like his ‘Masked Singer’ elimination was a bit of a slap in the face. 

The Turtle

What would this list be without mentioning the biggest robbery of season three with The Turtle? From the very beginning, The Turtle was probably the most consistent performer and vocalist. He put everything he had into each performance and never recieved a negative critique from the judges. Everyone thought he was a shoo-in to be the winner. It was one of the biggest shocks of all time when The Night Angel won the entire competition after the superfans and the judges voted. But even the judges looked shocked when this was announced. 

The Turtle was revealed to be teen heartthrob Jesse McCartney who has long been a music sensation and actor. He was made for a show like this and it was very clearly a robbery. After the show, he opened up about the disappointment he felt when he did not win the show. 

The Seahorse

Of course, we have to talk about the biggest shock of season four. The Seahorse was eliminated just before the finale. This was flat out messed up because all season long, the judges continuously said that The Seahorse would be in the finale and battle it out with The Sun. They always complimented her vocals and at the very last moment, correctly guessed that it was songstress Tori Kelly under the mask before voting her off the show.

Tori is one of the best vocalists of this generation and the Grammy-Award winner just released a Christmas album. There is nothing she can’t do and no note that she can’t hit. During her time as The Seahorse, she was able to embody each of the artists whose songs she performed whether it be Britney Spears or Celine Dion. She already has a huge fanbase outside of the show and her fans took to social media, Reddit and YouTube comments to express how angry they were about her elimination.
