Fox’s The Masked Singer revealed its winner last night (12/16) and now we know that “The Sun” was LeAnn Rimes.
LeAnn was revealed to be the show’s ultimate winner — something two of the judges on the panel correctly predicted. Rimes was mostly smiles as she accepted her congratulations, but she choked up a bit while sharing how this experience brought her back to the roots of why she always wanted to sing for a living.
LeAnn posted the winning moment to Instagram saying, “BUSTED Rimes. The secret is out and I can’t wait to FINALLY be able to talk to you about my time as #TheSun on @maskedsingerfox.
I’ve seen your sweet messages and dm’s over these past few months and wanted to respond so many times. Thank you for the support and LovE! I have absolutely had the best time shining some light in the world during a time of darkness.
Sending ALL my LovE to the INCREDIBLE team over at the Masked Singer for making this such a fun, creative and most importantly safe experience for everyone involved. I’ve had the BEST time!
