"The Masked Singer" latest episode ended with a shocking revelation. Spoiler alert! Four times Daytime Emmy nominee, Tom Bergeron, is the "Taco!"

Tom Bergeron is many things. He is a radio talk show host, comedian, and television personality. What no one expected him to be is the "Taco" in the American reality singing competition called, "The Masked Singer."

"The Kitty," "The Taco," "The Banana," and "The Frog" were battling each other for a spot in the "Super 9". Only three of them could make it that far, meaning someone was going to get evicted.

"The Kitty," "The Banana," and "The Frog" were cleared for the next round while "The Taco" was eliminated. The audience held their breath as the personality behind the mask revealed who he was.

Behold, it was DWTS legend, Tom Bergeron! The "Dancing With the Stars" host performed "Can't Help Myself" by "The Four Tops," before he was eliminated. 


Quite recently, another star was evicted from the weekly singing competition, Dionne Warwick, who wore the mask of "The Mouse."

The singer appeared in an interview with Entertainment Weekly, where she shared her motivation for participating as a contestant.

The "Kitty" could also see ghosts.


Warwick revealed that her son's love for the show was a deciding factor. She had also seen Gladys Knight's and Patti Labelle's performances on the show, and decided it was something she could do.

The "I'll Never Fall In Love Again" singer further revealed that she was not nervous when it was her time to perform,

"It wasn't the easiest thing to navigate, but it was easy."


Speculations were wild about the celebrities behind "The Kitty," "The Taco" "The Banana," and "The Frog." 

"The Kitty," through her BFF, revealed she was bullied in school. The Miranda Lambert's "Mama's Broken Heart" performer claimed she could also see ghosts. The judges' guesses were Christina Ricci, Kristen Bell, and Haylie Duff.

The other contestant "The Banana" performed "Lean On Me" by Bill Withers. He also revealed that he recently lost his father. The judges' guesses were Michael Andretti, Brad Paisley, and Johnny Knoxville.

The last performer for the night was "The Frog" with a powerful rendition of The Gap Band's "You Dropped A Bomb On Me." Guesses were Tommy Davidson, Ludacris, and Omarion.
