Kandi Burruss and Bow Wow were in the top three contenders on "The Masked Singer," but the Xscape singer took home the crown.
Since we put all of the information in the title, it may be a tad too late to advise you that there are spoilers ahead. The Masked Singer closes out yet another season, and the finale had some surprising revelations. After performing Tina Turner's "River Deep, Mountain High" as the Night Angel, Kandi Burruss took home the crown as the winner of this season of the popular competition series. It wasn't difficult to figure out that Kandi was the singer behind the costume considering she has one of the most distinctive voices in the industry.
"For so long I had to convince myself that I wasn't enough," Kandi said as the Night Angel prior to her unmasking. "When I didn't find success as a solo artist, I decided to develop other businesses behind the scenes of music. I did what I had to do because I'm a mother." She added, "I'm here not just for myself, but for all women and for my little angels — to show them it's never too late to be the person you were meant to be."
Bow Wow took to the stage to perform a hip hop favorite: "Bad Boy For Life" by Diddy, Black Rob, and Mark Curry. As the masked Frog he said, "After years of people always having things to say about me on social media, I started to really doubt myself." Being on the show gave Bow Wow the confidence and opportunity "to get back to my first love, which is music."
After his unmasking, Bow Wow was asked if he believed he would make it to the top three. "No, not at all, not at all," the rapper said. "But there was a lot of strong vocalists here, so I knew I wasn't going to out-sing or out-ballad anybody. So I said, you know what, I'm gonna come with the swag, I'm gonna add a little bit of this, a little bit of that. I want the people behind me. If I get the people behind me, that's going to be my little cheat code to get to the top and it worked." Kandi's win makes her the first woman to top The Masked Singer.
