ST. LOUIS – Before the final 6 take the stage next week, tonight we witnessed the biggest award show of the season, The Masky’s.
During The Masky’s, current and voted off celebrities of the season won awards (a golden Nick Cannon ‘relic’ with sparkly shoes) for their performances. Fans were also able to sing along with contestants as they performed the songs they won awards for.
The voted-off celebrities even came back for a medley performance, singing “Never Gonna Give You Up” by Rick Astley.
Of course, it wouldn’t be The Masked Singer Season 5 if game-changing moments and clues weren’t thrown into the mix. As host Nick Cannon revealed who won awards, our cage-free clue hacker, Cluedle-Doo gave us specific hints on the remaining celebrities to learn more about their identities.
