A strange and wonderful journey ends while "The Masked Singer" finishes his last performances and unveils the three singers.
And these three are singers as they have proven week after week throughout this crazy race. It's a show with people disguised as idiotic costumes, and there have been times when it has left us sobbing in our seat. There is something special about what it does for those artists who have spent a lot of time in the spotlight.
We have the Vegas showman, the legendary soul band and the music industry star looking for redemption and new ears for what he is capable of. All three were incredible throughout the season, but only one could win.
In the end, we all won because we finally could see who was under the three masks. At the end of the hour, everyone was revealed and no one saw the identity of the very first winner of the upcoming series!
Tonight, the two weakest artists have had the boot, but we are going to make you seize power through the terrible (and sometimes good) assumptions of our illustrious group of Robin Thicke, Jenny McCarthy, Ken Jeong and Nicole Scherzinger first. And this week they were joined by the worst guesser J.B. Smoove. We do this because we love … you torture.
Peacock went to school for his last performance of the season with Ray Charles's "Shake aTail Feather" and gave him his usual flair. It was an incredibly fun performance, but it was not the best showcase he had this season.
And with a competition as powerful as Monster and Bee to come, it could have been too tame. Come on, Donny Osmond, you know better than that; you have done this all your life.
Yes, before the big revelation, we were still solid with our choice for Peacock. The quality of the staging and the presence on stage offer all the exceptional performances that Donny has been offering to its fans for decades. And even when he tried newer and cooler songs, he could not help adding his unique flair.
The latest clues revealed that he had a lead role alongside a pharaoh and that he had even dropped the mention of the pyramids. They come together with her cloak and rainbow wig, revealing her role in "Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat".
But in reality, since everyone has been revealed tonight, it's more about who has the best chance of winning this crown. As good as it is, Peacock was the underdog who started this final and we do not think he's done enough with this performance to do better than third.
Bee is almost since (she will not fail to point out that almost) 70 years old, revealing that she had won a singing competition even before all the members of the jury were born. She also tried to dub Peacock by telling us that she had already had the number one show on the Vegas Strip.
She then brought all our soul, our grace, our experience and our two gravitas "I can not make you love, Bonnie Raitt", and it was an excellent competitive choice for her last time under the mask.
She is so masterful of the voice that she drew every ounce of emotion from those words with the smallest twinkle of her voice. Her voice was a bit stifled under the mask's echo this week, but we can not deny that she's a powerhouse and that she's there to win everything.
The panelist has rightly ovationed him. And although we are not convinced that anyone can beat the Monster at this point, what a huge success for "The Masked Singer" that Gladys – or whoever it is – has been able to lend his legendary status to them. ridiculous little show.
When she signed, no one knew what was going to happen. We expect bigger and more shocking stars for the coming seasons.
Monster dropped his last clue on T-Pain when he said that he could eliminate Bee and Peacock, "whether in my cave at the bar or on a boat." The latter option was a clear wink to his Lonely Island hit of "Saturday Night Live" bearing that name.
He is so humble and sweet and kind and appreciates this opportunity to show who he really is as an interpreter and singer. This show means more to Monster than anyone else, and this sincerity leads to truly emotional moments.
Why are we laughing at a singer dressed in an adorable and smiling monster costume? We bet you could ask yourself the same thing. This week, however, he spared us heartache by immediately passing to the act "It's As We Do It" by Montell Jordan.
Nevertheless, his amazing voice has always gone well and this has turned out to be another chapter of the most diverse competitor of the season. He is clearly the sentimental favorite and he may well be the most dynamic singer (without wanting to offend the living legend on the scene).
And he's right – if it turns out to be T-Pain – that no one thought he was capable of that caliber of voice and that no one really wanted to give him a chance after his autotune use dominated his public image.
Monster is here to win and he deserves the title. If it depended on us, it would be Monster's season. It's more than just his voice, it's all his story, his versatility, his humor and, at least in part, how adorable this costume is.
3rd place – Bee
This surprised Nicole Scherzinger and us, as we expected Peacock to slip into third place. She and almost all members of the group were in agreement that it was Gladys Knight, but Ken Jeong insisted that it was Anita Baker … and he was wrong.
The bee was totally Gladys Knight and when asked why she would agree to doing a show like this, she replied, "Because we should always strive to do all kinds of things because they lift us up."
2nd place – peacock
The latest assumptions of the Peacock included Robin Thicke's "Weird Al" choice, on which the audience made their voices heard. Jenny left NPH at the last second to accompany Donny Osmond. Ken went with NPH, as did Nicole. Kenan jumped on it oddly with "Weird Al", but no.
C & # 39; was Donny Osmondof course, meaning that only Jenny had that right. Donny's reason was pretty simple. "Because it's funny!" And he proved how much he was a workaholic, always doing his shows in Las Vegas every night doing this show.
Winner – Monster
Once again, it's amazing that this ridiculous show could spark real emotion, but what a wonderful victory for the Monster. This trip has been so important to him and he hopes this will give him the career recovery he so desperately wants – and with a voice like that, the merit altogether.
Monster was our favorite to win this show from the very first note and was the highlight of all the episodes in which he appeared. Nick Cannon was super confident of knowing who he was and writing his conjecture.
As for the panelists, they traveled the whole season with Monster. After agreeing with Donny Osmond, Jenny pioneered the cornfields to nominate Michael Vick for his choice, and even the panel was puzzled. Robin went with Jamie Foxx, Ken dismissed Darius Rucker, Nicole did not even like his choice of Ceelo Green and Kenan chose Tyreese Gibson.
And guess what, they were all false.
It was a beautiful revelation as T-Pain completed his journey of redemption with triumph and tears in his eyes. No one will ever doubt what he is capable of as a singer. And we love the fact that his unmasked cover song is "Stay with Me" by Sam Smith, because we want his cover to be released as a single!
"The Masked Singer" is a very real phenomenon and will be back for a second season, and we think it will be even bigger and longer than this one.
