"Masked Singer" Winner Shocks Judges & Fans!
According to USA Today...
None of the judges expected this final "Masked Singer" reveal. T-Pain, revealed Wednesday as the man inside Monster and the inaugural winner of Fox’s “The Masked Singer,” says that the Monster costume helped him overcome his initial reluctance to be part of the show.
I didn’t really get into it until I saw the choices for the costume. Once I saw Monster, I was like, ‘I just want to wear that thing.’ I wasn't going to pass by that Monster. I got into the competition just to wear the costume. As long as I got to wear it once, I was fine. I didn’t think I was going to get past the first episode.
T-Pain's runner up was Peacock, Donny Osmond. Third place went to Bee, the legendary Gladys Knight.
