LOS ANGELES, Calif., Feb. 27, 2019 (Gephardt Daily) — On the finale night, the remaining stars in “The Masked Singer” were finally unmasked. And Utahns who have suspected they knew the identity of the Peacock got their answer.
Spoilers ahead. You know the drill.
The identities of the reality show’s final three costumed celebrities were confirmed.

Revealed next was the the Peacock, who judges guessed was either Weird Al Yankovic, Neil Patrick Harris or Utah’s own Donny Osmond.
But Utahn’s couldn’t miss the many clues the peacock shared, including that he had performed since a young age, performed magic, danced, and grew up in a large family.
In the finale, he referenced living in a state symbolized by a beehive, and video showed him in a room with a framed silhouette of the Angel Moroni, a symbol of the LDS faith and the statue that tops LDS temples.
Unmasked, 61-year-old Osmond revealed he had been flying in for each performance from Las Vegas, where is has a concert gig with sister Marie Osmond.
The last unmasked, the winner of “The Masked Singer,” was revealed to be T-Pain, 33, whose off-stage name is Faheem Rasheed Najm.
The rapper/singer/songwriter founded the Nappy Boy Entertainment record label. T-Pain’s fifth album, “Oblivion,” was November in November of 2017.
