The host, panelists, audience, viewers, and even other contestants have to guess who the singer behind the mask is. Each week a singer is eliminated – then reveals their true identity.
Tonight’s winner takes home the coveted Golden Mask Trophy.
The big winner for season five was “Piglet,” aka Nick Lachey, multi-platinum artist, from 98 Degrees. Second place went to “Black Swan”, singer JoJo, winner of a Grammy. Coming in third was “Chameleon,” who was none other than multi-platinum star Wiz Khalifa.
Jenny McCarthy Wahlberg won The Golden Ear Trophy for the second season in a row. She managed to identify Caitlyn Jenner as “Phoenix” and Bobby Brown as “Crab” earlier in the season.
