The Masked Singer finalist ‘Mushroom’ has been revealed as Grammy nominated singer-songwriter/record producer, Aloe Blacc. Find out how he did in the hit FOX reality competition.
All good things must come to an end.
Mushroom’s journey on The Masked Singer came to an end on Wednesday, December 16 with the finale episode. He faced the other Masked Singers who still remained – Sun and Crocodile for the coveted Golden Mask trophy. After finishing his final performance for the judges and being named the runner-up, singer, record producer, and philanthropist Aloe Blacc was revealed to be behind the mask.
While competing in the zany FOX competition, Blacc showed off his versatility with performances such as “This Woman’s Work” by Maxwell, “If I Could Turn Back Time” by Cher, “Unconditionally” by Katy Perry and “Valerie” by Amy Winehouse, among others.
In order to earn his place in The Masked Singer finals, Blacc saw off competition in ‘Group C’ including television host Wendy Williams (“Lips”), comedian/actor Bob Saget (“Squiggly Monster”), legendary singer-songwriter Paul Anka (“Broccoli”) and Olympic gold medallist snowboarder Chloe Kim (“Jellyfish”).
Contestants throughout the season included singer/former American Idol contestant Tori Kelly (“Seahorse”), actor Brian Austin Green (“Giraffe”), retired NFL star Mark Sanchez (“Baby Alien”), country singer Clint Black and his wife Lisa (“Snow Owls”) and viral sensation Dr. Elvis Francois (“Serpent”), among others.
Long before competing on The Masked Singer, Blacc had a history with panelist Robin Thicke – a fact which Mushroom alluded to as a clue. Back in 2014, Blacc described Thicke’s song Blurred Lines as “immoral”, commenting, “Music is a spiritual experience whether you want to admit it or not, music opens your senses and has been used historically as a conduit to your inner psyche.”
