*Warning: Spoilers ahead*
Last week on The Masked Singer, we bid farewell to another beloved contestant and found out which three were headed to this week’s finals. But on the finale, Frog, Night Angel and Turtle competed for one last time before one was crowned the winner.
Frog kicked things off by rapping “Bad Boy for Life” by Black Rob, Mark Curry and Diddy, followed by Turtle who shocked the audience with his soulful performance of “Before You Go” by Lewis Capaldi (seriously, some tears were flowing in the audience). Finally, Night Angel hit the stage with her rendition of Tina Turner’s classic “River Deep, Mountain High.”
After the audience and panelists voted, sadly, Frog was sent packing and revealed himself to be rapper Bow Wow. That’s right folks, we called it all the way back in episode five.
But the night didn’t stop there. Host Nick Cannon went on to announce this season’s runner up...Turtle. This means that Night Angel is the official winner The Masked Singer season three. However, before we could get to unmasking the purple songstress, Turtle took off his giant amphibian head and revealed his identity to be singer Jesse McCartney. Looks like we’re two for two.
Drum roll please! Night Angel is...Kandi Burruss. The singer, Grammy-winning songwriter and Real Housewives of Atlanta star was unmasked proved our episode 11 theory correct. Burruss marks the first woman to win the reality competition!
“For a long time, I stopped singing by myself. You get negative feedback so it kind of messes with your head,” Burress said. “I really appreciate you guys for helping me build my confidence back up.”
Congrats, Night Angel! We already can’t wait for season four.
