While several of her fans camped under the tweet to join in her celebration, some people weren’t too pleased with Kandi emerging as the show’s winner.
Jesse had left a lasting impression on viewers and judges when he opted to perform a touching rendition of Lewis Capaldi's "Before You Go."
This set of people believes that Jesse should have won the coveted Golden Mask, and they made their opinions known via Twitter.
One person, who claimed to have given up on the show, said that Turtle “should have won hands down.” A second Twitter user asked if viewers of “The Masked Singer” were open to “canceling” the show as Night Angel had been crowned the winner.
While mentioning the show’s official handle, a third person tweeted that he would like to “report a robbery” as “A person in a turtle costume was just robbed of the Masked trophy on the Masked Singer!”. A fourth Jesse fan simply declared that Turtle was the “greatest of all time.”
Amid the ongoing social media drama, ET Online recalled that Jesse had left a lasting impression on viewers and judges when he opted to perform a touching rendition of Lewis Capaldi's "Before You Go."

The singer-songwriter’s performance had, in fact, been so good that it brought one of "The Masked Singer" judges, Nicole Scherzinger, to tears.
As for Bow Wow, who came in third place, People reported that the rapper loved getting the chance to perform on a stage, in front of an audience.
The rapper told the news outlet that he felt like it was the perfect opportunity for him “to showcase my skills, showcase my talent, and just remind the world that I’m still that dude.” The 33-year-old previously took time away from his music to handle TV gigs such as “106 & Park.”
