Warning! The following contains the results for the Season 4 finale of The Masked Singer. Read at your own risk!
The Masked Singer Season 4 has officially ended, but not before a finale absolutely loaded with insane talent. Mushroom, Crocodile, and Sun were all battling it out for the win, and of course, only one would prevail. All three brought their best performances, but at the end of the day, it was the season's favorite Sun that went home with the Golden Mask trophy.
After her tremendous season on The Masked Singer, it's possible Sun could go home with a rebooted career that takes her back to the same levels of fame as she hit at her peak. For those who missed the finale, Sun was unmasked and revealed to be Grammy winner and country singer LeAnn Rimes, who looked absolutely thrilled to be the one on top after a fiercely competitive season.
LeAnn Rimes has continued to release music in recent years, though I think it's fair to say her fame has waned since her peak pop stardom in the late '90s and early 2000s. Season 4 of The Masked Singer has proven that the masses made a mistake in sleeping on the powerhouse singer, who displayed her vocal dominance against fierce competition throughout the entire fall season.
Perhaps the best case to make for this is that LeAnn Rimes held her own against two other notable musical artists with successful careers in the business. The Crocodile came in third place and was unmasked to be none other than Backstreet Boys singer Nick Carter. That leaves Mushroom in second place who, after a soulful performance, was unmasked and revealed to be recording artist Aloe Blacc. As I previously mentioned, this was about the most musically stacked finale The Masked Singer has had in its entire run, and I would say the bar has been raised for talent.
And, if the fandom is willing to get on board, we need to put LeAnn Rimes back on the pedestal she was on top of in her heyday. Honestly, I wouldn't be surprised if Rimes has something new on the way to coincide with her previously recorded victory in front of a semi-fake audience, similar to T-Pain dropping a new album shortly after he was crowned the winner of The Masked Singer back in Season 1. I'm certainly not feeling "blue" about the thought of her back in the limelight, and what better way to increase competition (and ratings) on the Fox series than to have it lead to a career revival?
The Masked Singer Season 4 is done, but more masked goodness is on the way soon enough with The Masked Dancer Sunday, December 27 on Fox. As always, continue to stick with CinemaBlend for more on the franchise, and for the latest happenings in television and movies.
