Fox’s “The Masked Singer,” an adaptation of the popular South Korean series, premiered as an instant hit on January 2, 2019. Hosted by Nick Cannon, the wild and wacky reality TV show tasks a group of mystery celebrities with dressing up in extravagant costumes and singing in front of a studio audience and panel of judges: Robin Thicke, Ken Jeong, Jenny McCarthy and Nicole Scherzinger. Each week the contestant who receives the lowest number of votes is unmasked in front of America, until only one remains as the winner of the coveted Golden Mask.

Now in its eighth season, the total number of masked celebs stands at over 100 and counting. There were 12 in the first competition, 16 in the second, 18 in the third, 16 in the fourth, 15 (including Cludle-Doo) in the fifth, 16 in the sixth and 15 in the seventh. Each cycle, the singers are initially divided into separate groups, where they perform against their group-mates. Later on, all of the survivors are combined together, which is where the competition really heats up.
Of the dozens who’ve competed, only these seven celebs claimed victory and took home Golden Mask trophies: Monster (T-Pain), Fox (Wayne Brady), Night Angel (Kandi Burruss), Sun (LeAnn Rimes), Piglet (Nick Lachey), Queen of Hearts (Jewel) and Firefly (Teyana Taylor).
Their respective runners-up were Peacock (Donny Osmond), Rottweiler (Chris Daughtry), Turtle (Jesse McCartney), Mushroom (Aloe Blacc), Black Swan (JoJo), Bull (Todrick Hall) and Ringmaster (Haley Orrantia).
The third place finishers for each finale were Bee (Gladys Knight), Flamingo (Adrienne Bailon), Frog (Bow Wow), Crocodile (Nick Carter), Chameleon (Wiz Khalifa), Skunk (Faith Evans)/Banana Split (David Foster & Katharine McPhee) and Prince (Cheyenne Jackson).
Among some of the most shocking reveals in “Masked Singer” history were Poodle (Margaret Cho), Lion (Rumer Willis), Penguin (Sherri Shepherd), Ladybug (Kelly Osbourne), Robot (Lil Wayne), Bear (Sarah Palin), Giraffe (Brian Austin Green), Snail (Kermit the Frog) and Pufferfish (Toni Braxton). None of the judges guessed any of these folks correctly — did you at home?
