"The Masked Singer" Holiday Special Semi-finals makes another jaw-dropping reveal after Seal and NBA star, Victor Oladipo, exit the show.


Leading up to the final showdown on "The Masked Singer," the show revealed two unlikely celebrities behind the "Leopard" and the "Thingamajig" masks.

The two stars wowed audiences and brought the judges to their feet several times throughout the season. So it was a huge surprise when the Thingamajig unmasked to reveal NBA player Victor Oladipo.


Oladipo said singing has always been a hidden talent of his. It was something his mother encouraged him to share with the world. After being unmasked, he said:

"It has been a rough year for me but to be able to come out here and put smiles on people's faces and just do something fun for once and get away from the game has been awesome. It's nothing but a blessing for me."

In a most unlikely guess, Dr Ken Jeong discovered his hidden identity. The correct answer had him so excited he was up at his feet and couldn't contain himself.

However, it was nothing compared Jenny McCarthy's reaction on Wednesday when Nick Cannon helped expose the butterfly as Destiny's Child singer, Michelle Williams.


Sending home another legend, Seal's animated character, the "Leopard" had judges guessing he was anyone from Eric Benét, Jeff Goldblum to Billy Porter. Commenting on his time on the show he said:

"It's certainly one that I won't forget, that's for sure. But it was a lot of fun and [I'm] kind of sad that it's over. I thought that this would be a great opportunity to make them laugh and make myself laugh."


Seal had the judges so confused with his character that early on in the show, they were convinced the "Leopard" could have been a woman underneath his mask.

The "Kiss From A Rose" singer once spoke about his "four little ones" when trying to give clues. After being unmasked, he revealed that he is excited to see his children's reaction to watching the show.

However, he admits that his four children with Heidi Klum know his voice pretty well and probably won't be fooled by his act.
