Medusa Wins  The Masked Singer , Unmasked as Bishop Briggs During Wednesday’s finale

Medusa took the stage twice to sing “Elastic Heart” by Sia and “Welcome to the Black Parade” by My Chemical Romance. Medusa has performed more than anyone else in the competition this season, having returned as a wildcard in the Quarterfinals.   

At the end of the night, the panel and audience voted Medusa as the Season 9 winner. 

Before she was unmasked, the panel shared their final thoughts about her identity. Guesses included Grimes, Fergie, and Susan Boyle (yes, that was Ken Jeong). However, only Nicole Scherzinger correctly guessed that Medusa was Bishop Briggs. The singer expressed how much competing on the show meant to her, and shared her delight at being able to sing an “emo anthem” for her final episode. She closed the show with a performance of her popular song “River.”

Hosted by Nick Cannon, with panelists Ken Jeong, Jenny McCarthy, Nicole Scherzinger and Robin Thicke, “The Masked Singer’' is a top-secret singing competition in which celebrities face off against one another while shrouded from head to toe in an elaborate costume, concealing his or her identity. With each performance, the host, panelists, audience, viewers and even the other contestants are left guessing who is singing behind the mask. The singers may attempt to throw off the crowd, but keen observers might pick up on tiny clues buried throughout the show. Each week, a singer is eliminated -- and then reveals his or her true identity.

Macaw Unmasked as David Archuleta

Medusa was up against Macaw in the season finale. During Wednesday’s show, Macaw performed “Hold Back the River” by James Bay and “All By Myself” by Eric Carmen. The judges were wowed by his talent, and it was clear they had a hard time deciding who should win.

Macaw ended up finishing the competition in second place. Guesses from the panel about his identify included Jason Mraz and Neil Patrick Harris. However, Nicole Scherzinger once again correctly guessed that it was David Archuleta, and Ken Jeong agreed with her.

Jeong got emotional as he shared how much Archuleta meant to him, as he would watch him on  American Idol  when his wife was pregnant and on bed rest. Archuleta himself also teared up as he talked about his  difficult journey to coming out . He went on to perform “What Makes You Beautiful” by One Direction.

 And that’s a wrap on  The Masked Singer  Season 9. The show was  recently renewed for Season 10 , which we can look forward to watching later this year. Do you agree with this season’s winner? Let us know in the comments below.
