Recap of the tenth season of The Masked Singer: Winner and runner-up revealed

SPOILER ALERT: Do not read on if you have not watched the two-hour Season 10 finale of “The Masked Singer,” which aired Dec. 20 on Fox.

Thanks to you, Ne-Yo had the time of his life on Fox’s The Masked Singer. The entertainer won the tenth season of the hit series on Wednesday night, becoming the latest celebrity to be revealed this season. Ne-Yo won by performing Janet Jackson’s “Rhythm Nation.” Rihanna’s “Take a Bow”, before she was revealed to be a cow.

“Dukes of Hazzard” star John Schneider was the season’s runner-up, performing as Donut. In third place was “Pretty Little Liars” star (and one-time Moanalua high school student) Janel Parrish, who was revealed to be a deer. In fourth place, which was also revealed on Wednesday night, was Grammy Award winner Macy Gray, as the Sea Queen.

“I’ve been very fortunate to have had a lot of success in my career. And trust me, I’m grateful. Even though I won a Grammy, I didn’t see that moment,” Ne-Yo/Cow said in the pre-recorded “The Masked Singer” package. On TV at all.” “I never got to give my acceptance speech. Most importantly, I never had the opportunity to give credit to the person who made all of this possible: my mother. She has helped many other artists achieve their dreams and make their big moments possible. But sometimes I feel like I haven’t really had my moment. To be recognized not only as an artist, but as a creator. But here, I definitely felt this radiance… I hope that when I win the Golden Mask Trophy, I can finally read my acceptance speech after all these years.

Schneider stirred up a lot of emotions for the show’s panelists — especially Ken Jeong — for speaking out about his wife’s death earlier this year, and how “The Masked Singer” was part of his healing process.

“This has been a really good experience, being here, because most people don’t know that I love to sing,” Schneider Donat said. “My wife will say, ‘I don’t understand.’ I’ve made 18, 19 albums. Have five No. 1 songs. Ten or 15 top ten songs. There were a lot of things, but no one knew you were singing. So, two years ago, she said, “Hey, honey, we’re going to be in The Masked Singer.” So, people can finally see what you can do. This is truly a dream come true for me, because I can honor her by doing this. Every performance was a love letter to her. I know she was on that stage with me, every step of the way.

Among the panelists, Ne-Yo was spotted as the cow by Robin Thicke and Nicole Scherzinger. Ken Jeong said it was Asher, while Jenny McCarthy Wahlberg went with Billy Porter.

As for Donut, McCarthy and Wahlberg discovered he was John Schneider. Scherzinger thought it was Engelbert Humperdinck, while Thicke named him Tom Jones, and Jeong agreed.

As for the Sea Queen, perhaps it was a bit obvious – which is why all four panelists unanimously agreed. Scherzinger got this going first when he named Macy Gray, and Thicke, McCarthy, Wahlberg, and Jeong all went for the same.

Audio commentary for the package: “I originally chose to become the Cow because I thought it would be a really fun way to throw my friends off my scent on the committee. But, even though I’m used to wearing different hats, being here challenges me in a whole new way. I had to relearn How to fully express myself. From the way I move to the way I dance. When you reach my level of success and fame, there are certain expectations and pressures to perform the same old way. So, it’s been great to embrace this completely new persona. I became the cow, in a way What a tribute to my mom, who showed me that it was okay to be strong and sensitive. So, tonight, I’m going to channel that same ferocity to this end.

an idea: “Being the deer helped me regain my voice and confidence in singing again. Now, I never want to stop.”

I’ve mentioned in the past that deer have meaning to me because of the person I lost. What I haven’t said is that I have a tattoo of that person’s deer, with flowers growing from Horns. So, when I saw the drawing that looked so much like my tattoo, I broke down, shaking and crying. It felt like fate. Now, after being in the deer mask for a while, I can definitely say it feels like this alter ego that I was I crave it. When I wear it, all my fears and insecurities disappear. I have been given a second chance to hold on to this mask, and I will not waste it. Truly becoming the deer has allowed me to tap into my inner goddess. The power it has given me is a feeling I will never forget.

I’m an experienced performer but I’m used to being myself on stage. Having to learn new songs and choreography While wearing a giant mask has really helped me as an artist. It’s hot out there. It’s very stuffy. And that experience made me feel nervous again in a way I haven’t felt in a long time. But I fought through it, and I’m still here.
