"THE MASKED SINGER" BOLSTERED ADRIENNE BAILON'S CONFIDENCE

Adrienne took the third spot on "The Masked Singer" and was unmasked, one of the high points of the season

In an emotional moment, Adrienne revealed that she'd been told that she didn't have the talent to be a solo act.

Her participation in TMS, beating out such luminaries as Patti LaBelle and Seal, boosted her confidence in her own abilities, and in her voice.

Hopefully, we will soon see Adrienne back on stage with a mike, but this time without a mask.
