LeAnn Rimes wins Fox TV’s “The Masked Singer”


The final episode of The Masked Singer aired on Wednesday night (Dec. 16) and LeAnn Rimes was revealed as the singer in the sun costume and the winner of Season 4.

Two of The Masked Singer judges, Jenny McCarthy Wahlberg and Nicole Scherzinger, were able to guess that Rimes was the performer dressed as the sun. Ken Jeong went with his guess of Mandy Moore, while Robin Thicke thought it might be Katharine McPhee behind the mask.

Rimes, 38, sang “When the Party’s Over” by Billie Eilish during the semi-finals and closed out her run on the show with a cover of “The Story” by Brandi Carlile in the finale.

“I never thought I would do anything like this and I don’t think I’ll ever do anything like it again,” Rimes said in an interview after the show. “It’s such a unique show. I had no idea what I was getting myself into and I’m so glad I did.”

Rimes also added that she was happy to have a place to perform during the Covid-19 pandemic.
