Last night, Fox crowned its debut winner of The Masked Singer, and we didn’t see it coming, like, whatsoever.
During yesterday’s finale, the Monster beat out the Peacock for the highly coveted Golden Mask Trophy after performing “This Is How We Do It” by Montell Jordan. When host Nick Cannon announced the news, he simultaneously revealed the Monster’s identity: T-Pain.
The news might come as a shock to some fans, considering the judges regularly praised the Monster’s spot-on singing voice, and T-Pain is mainly known for his rapping.
“I didn’t have a chance to come to the game with my natural voice,” he said. “A lot of peers did, and they get accepted. This helped me get my voice out there even more.”
