Teyana Taylor won ‘The Masked Singer’ after giving an emotion-packed finale performance as a Firefly.
The 31-year-old singer was crowned victor on Wednesday (18/05/22) by show host Nick Cannon.
“Nobody knows who’s behind the mask. You just get to sing your heart out.”
Teyana beat actress Hayley Orrantia, who came second as the Ringmaster, while Cheyenne Jackson came in third as Prince.
She sang ‘Bad Girl’ by Usher for her final song.
For her second track, versus Ringmaster, she performed ‘Lost Without U’ by Robin Thicke.
Her previous performances included ‘Ain’t Nobody’ by Chaka Khan ‘P.Y.T. (Pretty Young Thing); by Michael Jackson and ‘Attention,” by Charlie Puth.
Judge Robin Thicke and Jenny McCarthy guessed Taylor’s identity correctly but fellow panelist Nicole Scherzinger thought it was Monica, and Ken Jeong, guessed Alicia Keys.
“The guesses made me crack up every week. I figured at first, they’d go the athlete route initially cuz of my size and my big legs but then when they started honing in, they started guessing quite literally all of my peers. I was laughing inside my frog head.”
