Grammy award-winning country singer is the 'Masked Singer' Season 4 winner

Season 4 of The Masked Singer came to an end Wednesday night as the final three mystery celebrities competed one last time. So, who took home the Golden Mask trophy?

In third place, the Crocodile was revealed to be Backstreet Boys heartthrob Nick Carter, which wasn't too much of a surprise to fans. However, what was a surprise was the Mushroom's identity, who practically no one guessed was Aloe Blacc. The singer-songwriter explained that he did this show for his daughter (“I Wish” is her favorite song) and was inspired by her girly energy and love of playing dress-up. Aloe’s daughter didn’t even know he was competing this season, and I bet she was as surprised as everyone else when that mushroom-cap headpiece came off.

However, there wasn't mushroom for more than one winner, and that turned out to be the Sun. Fans were so happy for the Sun, who said that the best part about doing the show was letting viewers see her inner light.

“Honestly, the best part of this has been people being able to feel the essence of me, without preconceived ideas of who or what I am. I feel like for the first time people are actually hearing me and feeling me… and that makes me really happy!” Who was the Sun? She was two-time Grammy award-winning country singer LeAnn Rimes.

Rimes shared that her experience on the show brought her back to when she was a kid. "I remember I was five years old when I told everyone I wanted to sing, and I've always wondered, like, how I knew at that age that I wanted to sing, and I kind of discovered it again behind this mask, and it was to give and receive love. And that's, like, totally what's happened," shared Rimes.
