The Masked Singer Season 2 Finale Recap: Critical Mask

the-masked-singer-finale-recap-season-2-episode-13

You might say that the competitor who came out on top of The Masked Singer‘s Season 2 finale outfoxed the competition.

You might say he was crazy like a fox.

You might say — OK, OK, I’m done: It was Fox. Fox won. Woo!

The final installment (for now) of the fever dream of a singing competition saw the unmasking of its final three players: In addition to Fox, we found out who was wearing the Flamingo and Rottweiler costumes, as well.

Read on for a quick recap of their performances and to find out who was under the feathers and fur.

FOX | All of the evening’s performances were really enjoyable, starting with Fox’s rendition of Otis Redding’s “Try a Little Tenderness” that started slow, built strong and kicked into its highest gear during a rap break that invoked Jay-Z and Kanye West’s “Otis.” And that dancing? Perfection. (My guess: Let’s Make a Deal host Wayne Brady.)

FLAMINGO | Flamingo had so much fringe on her costume all season, it was only a matter of time before she tackled Tina Turner’s “Proud Mary.” Girlfriend killed it. What a strong way to finish a season full of great stuff from her, no? (My guess: The Real co-host Adrienne Bailon.)

That said, I kinda thought Rottweiler would take home the Golden Mask after his performance of Sia’s “Alive.” So good! (My guess: American Idol alum Chris Daughtry.)

THE UNMASKINGS | Flamingo came in third; she was revealed to be Bailon. Rottweiler was runner-up; he was revealed to be Daughtry. And when Fox was unmasked, he was revealed to be Brady — who freestyled an impressive new rap during his “Try a Little Tenderness” reprise. (Read Brady’s thoughts on his Masked victory here.)
