A big part of the appeal of “The Masked Singer” is trying to figure out which famous faces are hidden behind those masks. Of the 12 celebrities to take part in the competition, only three have made it to the two-hour final, which airs on FOX on Wednesday. The trio of talent vying to win are disguised as the Bee, Monster and Peacock. We asked viewers who they thought were clad in these costumes.

A whopping 86% of “The Masked Singer” viewers say that this is Donny Osmond. Do you agree? Read our reasons why we think this and then vote in the poll below. And if you believe the Peacock to be someone else be sure to let us know in the comment section.

Of the four judges, Jenny McCarthy is the most convinced that the Peacock is Donny. She ticked off his career highlights: child star, awards show host, magician. But Nicole Scherzinger disagrees and says that all those accomplishments could just as easily be claimed by Neil Patrick Harris. What do you think?

The Peacock has proven himself to be a powerhouse singer. He nailed his semi-final performance of the dance hit “Let’s Go” by Calvin Harris and Ne-Yo. Since he first appeared singing the soaring anthem “The Greatest Show” from “The Greatest Showman,” the Peacock has tackled a variety of musical genres with ease. He scored with the pop hit “Counting Stars” by OneRepublic, the soulful “All of Me” by John Legend and the upbeat “Can’t Feel My Face” by The Weeknd.

Among the clues the Peacock has dropped are these: he first appeared on television when he was only five (that is how old Donny was when joined his older brothers on “The Andy Williams Show”), that he was “a teeny bopper” (the Osmond Brothers were a big boy band) and that he has had “different incarnations in my career” (Donny has hosted a variety show, talk show and game show; starred on Broadway; and headlined in Las Vegas).
