After successful two seasons, popular reality show The Masked Singer is currently witnessing the run of its third season. The show is getting more and more exciting each passing episode as the identities of the masked contestants get revealed. Recently, The Masked Singer 3’s ‘Kitty’ got revealed and the singer is identified as Jackie Evancho.
Interestingly, Jackie Evancho is known to have participated in America’s Got Talent a decade ago, and was even one of the finalists. But now she’s all grown up, which is why Evancho wanted to try her hand at The Masked Singer.
On her identity being finally revealed on the show, Jackie said, “Everybody knows me as a 10-year-old little girl who resembles an angel and sings like a 50 year old,” she told Variety. “That’s always going to be a part of me but I’m 20 years old now and I have so much else inside of me that I wanted the world to know, and this whole other range of talents and voices that I could be using. So I saw this as a great opportunity to sort of reinvent myself under this big mask of anonymity.
For her final performance, Evancho performed “Back to Black” by Amy Winehouse on Wednesday night’s episode. Her other songs in past episodes included “Dangerous Woman” and “Diamonds Are a Girl’s Best Friend.”
Evancho said the Kitty costume was easier than others, but still presented challenges. “It was still very difficult to adjust to breathing in this heavy mask and moving around and you can barely see, so it was nerve wracking but the more episodes I did the better I got at it,” she said.
As for the panel guesses, no one got it right. Nicole Scherzinger thought it was Vanessa Hudgens, guest panelist Jeff Dye picked Mary Kate or Ashley Olsen, Robin Thicke thought it was Ashley Tisdale, Ken Jeong named Anna Kendrick and Jenny McCarthy-Wahlberg picked Lea Michele.
Besides Evancho, so far this season, Lil Wayne, Drew Carey, Chaka Khan, Tony Hawk, Dionne Warwick, Tom Bergeron, Sarah Palin, Bella Thorne, JoJo Siwa, Rob Gronkowski, Jordyn Woods, Bret Michaels and Hunter Hayes have all been revealed.
As the competition continues, four celebrities are left this season: Turtle, Frog, Rhino and Night Angel.
