Fox may still be wearing a mask, but tonight, he’s bearing it all.
In EW’s exclusive clip of season 2’s finale episode, the finalist’s emotional speech reduces judge Nicole Scherzinger to tears.
“This is all I’ve done my whole life. And I’ve been able to be blessed enough to make a lot of people happy,” Fox says on stage. “But I haven’t always been happy myself. It’s taken me all this time to find my joy again, wearing a mask, and having no preconceived notions from anyone about what I can do.”
Fox ends his heartfelt message by saying, “I just want to thank the show for making me one happy Fox.” Scherzinger and the audience then cheer him on chanting, “We love you.”
In tonight’s 2-hour special, the Fox reality competition series will revisit all the fan-favorite moments and best performances from this season. Then, one by one, the three finalists’ will be revealed until one lucky competitor gets the golden mask trophy. Join host Nick Cannon, Scherzinger and her fellow judges Ken Jeong, Jenny McCarthy, and Robin Thicke as they make their final guesses for the remaining contestants.
The episode airs tonight, Dec. 18, at 8 p.m. ET on Fox.
