The Masked Singer 11 Top 2 Finale Battle for the WIN

The final 2 contestants, Gumball an Goldfish sing their hearts out for the win. ALL celebrities will have been unmasked by the end of the episode.

Nick Cannon hosts, while Robin Thicke, Jenny McCarthy, and Ken Jeong sit on the judges panel alongside new judge, Rita Ora.


Clues: He survived TWO smackdowns and TWO Battle Royales. He’s a survivor! He’s been on TV nearly two decades non-stop.

Performance: Latch by Disclosure ft. Sam Smith – He sings an unusual disco beat heavy version of “Latch.” He hits a big high note and uses his falsetto extensively. And then he BEAT BOXES. Pulling out all the tricks. Still think Goldfish has this, though. The judges will go through all their bad guesses for the season. Ken especially. Taran Killam, for instance. Jenny guessed James Marsden, then Jason Sudeikis. Now she says Derek Hough. Robin guesses Kevin Jonas, James Vanderbeek. Now he guesses Derek Hough. Rita guessed Chase Crawford, Jack Black, Taylor Kitsch and now Joseph Gordon Levitt. Nobody has guessed it yet!


Clues: As a little girl she wasn’t great at expressing herself. She comes from a working class family that has no connection to Hollywood. She doesn’t have kids yet. She’s an actress first, she’s always thought.

Performance: Heart of Glass by Blondie – Goldfish goes disco too. Is this the disco round? She’s better on the ballads. But she’s probably saving that for her second performance. Rita had guessed Leah Michele, and then Nina Dobrev and now she says Vanessa Hudgens. DING. Jenny guessed Selena Gomez, then Sarah Hyland. Now she says Julianne Hough. So close! Robin had guessed Hilary Duff. And he’s sticking to that. Ken guessed Carly Rae Jepsen then, Kristen Stewart, and now he’s saying Nicole Scherzinger. Sure Ken!


Clues: The Prime delivery tie delivers the Golden Mask Trophy! Nor more clues from the contestants. Oh well.

Performance: Renegade by Styx – He leaned into the classic rock vibes, especially toward the end of his run. Songs like this are great for male singers with big ranges. This song, however, is corny and dated. Guitar player has sparklers shooting from the instrument’s neck. DEVIL HORNS. Gumball says the performance for his parents, who were in a rock band. But they had to work day jobs.


Performance: Don’t Let the Sun Go Down on Me by Elton John – Yep. She closes out with an emotional Elton John classic. Goldfish doesn’t have as many vocal tricks up her sleeve as Gumball, but she’s a classically great singer who performs with nuance and emotion. Oh. She’s got the big gospel choir backing her! Goldish is surprised because not everybody knows what she does.

Jenny gives Rita props. She thanks the judges and audience for the incredible experience. CRYING.

Winner revealed! Both celebrities unmasked!

Last clue: Gumball and Goldfish have been co-stars before! And now Nick reveals the winner, and it is…Goldfish! I predicted correctly! Goldfish wins The Masked Singer 11. Final clues for Gumball Jenny: Derek Hough. Robin: Derek Hough. Ken: Taran Killam, Rita: Joseph Gordon Levitt. And Gumball is…Scott Porter from Friday Night Lights. The internets guessed this one. Scott says he’s never been trained. It took him two years to get a job at Disney in Florida. Scott coaches one of his son’s baseball team! He sings out with “Carry on my Wayward Son.”

Goldfish Final guesses Rita; Vanessa Hudgens. Ken: Nicole Scherzinger. Jenny: Vanessa Hudgens Robin: Hilary Duff. And the winner Goldfish is Vanessa Hudgens. Her clues all season were obvious, from hinting that she loves to perform live (Grease: Live) to sharing about her father passing away before a huge gig (Grease: Live). Rita is thrilled because the two are good friends. Vanessa and Scott starred together in the movie Bandslam. Scott lost to her in the film too! She sings out with “You Oughta Know.”
