The Masked Singer US has not only crowned its latest winner, it's also revealed the identity of three whole celebrities, with the masks finally coming off in yesterday's (May 20) final.

After weeks of far-fetched guesses from the judging panel, genuinely surprising reveals (Sarah Palin, anyone?), and equally impressive vocals, The Masked Singer US solved its final set of mysteries, confirming the celebs behind Night Angel, Turtle, and Frog.

In third place, there was Frog, who was later revealed as Shad Moss – aka Bow Wow – in news that shocked no-one... not even Ken Jeong.

Coming in a close second was Turtle, who was neither Zac Efron nor Donnie Wahlberg as some expected, but former boyband member and Disney soundtrack staple Jesse McCartney.

Last but certainly not least, Night Angel was revealed as season three's winner, and the US series' only female winner so far. Kandi Burruss, welcome to The Masked Singer's winners' circle.

Yes, The Real Housewives of Atlanta reality star and actual Grammy winner Kandi was crowned this series' champion, telling viewers that she can't wait to get "back to [her] passion" after getting her confidence back.

"I definitely am going to be singing more," Kandi said in an interview after the show. "For a while, I felt like I was getting negative feedback from just people online or naysayers, saying 'Oh, your voice [has gone] terrible'.

"I took those things to heart, but now I've proven to myself that what they're saying is not true," she added, promising fans that she plans a return to music.

"I can get back to my passion. I'm going to do some more music and just have fun with it."
