"The Masked Singer" has just completed its fifth season.
Stars wear over-the-top costumes and speak with voice modulators while competing on the show.
Piglet was chosen as the winner on Wednesday.
Season five of "The Masked Singer" is upon us, and with a new season, we had our first non-human reveal. The Snail was revealed to be ... Kermit the Frog.
If you, for a second, thought "The Masked Singer" had run out of surprises in its fifth season — think again. We had our very first Muppet reveal in season five's premiere, when the Snail, after performing "You Make My Dreams" by Hall & Oates, was unmasked as our very favorite frog, Kermit.
The second reveal of the season was Caitlyn Jenner as the Phoenix.
Jenner was only able to sing "Tik Tok" by Kesha before getting eliminated from season five.

The YouTuber (and boxer) performed "Mambo No. 5 (A Little Bit Of...)" by Lou Bega and "Bad Reputation" by Joan Jett before getting the boot.
In a shocking twist, host Nick Cannon was unmasked as the Bulldog.
Cannon had been missing from the first four episodes due to testing positive for COVID-19, so Niecy Nash has been filling in. But during the fifth episode, Cannon made his triumphant return as the episode's wildcard, the Bulldog. He performed "Candy Girl" by New Edition.
Sugar Ray lead singer Mark McGrath was revealed as the Orca.
McGrath was one of four Wild Cards this season — Nick Cannon as the Bulldog was another — and was the second to be unmasked. He performed "We're Not Gonna Take It" by Twisted Sister and "Every Rose Has Its Thorn" by Poison before getting eliminated.

Gibson performed "Never Too Much" by Luther Vandross, "All of Me" by John Legend, "Killing Me Softly" by Roberta Flack, "Let's Get It On" by Marvin Gaye, and "Water Runs Dry" by Boyz II Men, reminding us all that, before "Fast and Furious," Gibson was the singer of hits like "How You Gonna Act Like That."
The Russian Dolls were unmasked as none other than '90s boy-band royalty Hanson.
Yes, all three "MMMBop" singers piled into the big Russian Doll for the reveal.

One of the season's new editions was Cluedle-Doo, a chicken who danced around and gave the audience clues. During week 10, he was unmasked - and it was panelist Jenny McCarthy's husband Donnie Wahlberg.
Yes, somehow McCarthy was unable to recognize her husband's singing voice when he sang "Return of the Mack" by Mark Morrison, or the clues that would've pointed her in the right direction.

The first celebrity to be unmasked in season four was Busta Rhymes as the Dragon.
The rapper was the first contestant to get voted off season four. His lone performance was LL Cool J's "Mama Said Knock You Out."
In a genuinely baffling season four twist, Mickey Rourke unmasked himself as the Gremlin before he could be voted off.
In an unprecedented move, the Oscar-nominated actor decided to unmask himself because he was getting too hot in the mask, therefore eliminating himself. On why he did the show, he told Nick Cannon, "I was in the neighborhood. I like the show, I watched four episodes and they asked if I'd be interested so I watched from the very beginning and all that s---."
Before unmasking himself, Rourke performed "Stand By Me" by Ben E. King.
The Giraffe was unmasked as Brian Austin Green.
The former "Beverly Hills, 90210" star was nervous that his good friend Robin Thicke would be able to guess it was him, but those fears were unfounded. Thicke guessed Jaleel White, aka Steve Urkel.

The show's first-ever duo costume, the Snow Owls, were revealed as husband and wife Clint Black and Lisa Hartman Black.
It truly has been a season of firsts for "The Masked Singer." The Snow Owls were the first two-person costume in the show's run, and it immediately became clear this should be a thing going forward.
