Masks were off for JoJo when she was revealed as the “Black Swan.” The singer scored second place with her emotional performance of “How Am I Supposed to Live Without You” by Michael Bolton. However, only Jenny McCarthy and Nicole Scherzinger were able to guess correctly. After the reveal, JoJo captioned her picture on Instagram “Peek-a-boo, it’s mee, Black Swan.”

She continued to share the reason behind why she pursued the show to her fans. “Somewhere over the last few years I developed stage fright that has impacted me mentally & physically & sometimes makes it feel like I’m choking. I knew I had to do something about this feeling, & I wanted to stop taking myself so seriously. I figured donning a 15 lb bedazzled swan costume + headpiece while anonymously singing my heart out might be a good way to do that.”

Last but not least, third place went to “Chameleon,” who was revealed as Wiz Khalifa. Judges – Robin Thicke and Nicole Scherzinger guessed correctly, while the three other judges thought the Chameleon was either 2 Chainz or Gucci Mane.

The rapper also did the show for his son, Bash. “I’m a fun dad, I love to enjoy myself, I love to be myself,” continuing that he wants to be the best example of having a good time. 

The Golden Ear trophy went to Jenny McCarthy…for the second season in a row! The Judge was able to correctly identify Bobby Brown as “Crab” and  Caitlyn Jenner as “Phoenix” at the beginning of the season!

This marks the end of season 5 of The Masked Singer but we can’t wait for next season. Which season 5 Masked Singer revealed surprised you the most? Leave a reaction below or tweet us at @celebsecrets
