The celebrity behind the fox costume was finally revealed on Wednesday night’s Season 2 finale of The Masked Singer: Wayne Brady. 

Who Was The Masked Singer?

The 47-year-old host of CBS’s Let’s Make a Deal raved about his experience on the new singing competition series, calling it “the coolest, most amazing, most touching, most challenging, weirdest” thing he has ever participated in. Brady thus received the golden mask as a prize for winning the competition.

“I’m gonna take this with me forever,” Brady added.

Judges Nicole Scherzinger and Robin Thicke both correctly guessed who was behind the Fox mask, while Ken Jeong and Jenny McCarthy predicted it was Jamie Foxx. 


Before performing his last song, Fox confessed he was “obsessing” over every minute detail. He performed Otis Redding’s “Try A Little Tenderness” for his final performance, part of which he rapped for aside from dancing grandiosely.

“Winning will allow me to showcase my skills as a singer and finally write my own story,” said Brady.

Rottweiler, who was revealed to be Chris Daughtry, ultimately came in second place. Jeong had predicted Dave Franco was under the dog mask, while McCarthy guessed Jason Mraz and Thicke and Scherzinger both suspected it to be Darren Criss. 

Daughtry, 39, performed “Alive” by Sia and told the panel he wanted to “do something fun” and “challenge” himself.

The Flamingo — who was revealed to be former Cheetah Girls star Adrienne Bailon — finished third in Wednesday’s finale. Jeong was the only judge on the panel to incorrectly guess that animal’s identity: he assumed it was Jessica Simpson. 

Bailon blew the audience away with her rendition of Tina Turner‘s “Proud Mary.”

Season 3 of The Masked Singer will premiere on Feb. 2 after Super Bowl LIV.
