One of the mystery celebrity contestants in “The Masked Singer” is The Lion. She sang “A Little Party Never Killed Nobody” by Fergie featuring Q-Tip and Goonrock when the new singing competition show premiered on Fox on January 2, 2019.
“I am The Lion and I am here to roar,” The Lion said. “This is my chance for people to see me perform without any preconceived notions of who I am. Some might say I’m Hollywood royalty but now I am standing on my own and I am stepping away from my pride to sing my heart out.”
“I don’t see a lion as just brave and courageous,” The Lion added. “True strength comes from embracing all your vulnerabilities. So here I am behind this mask and I am going to show my true self for the very first time.”
The Lion is 5’6″ tall. Here are three of the celebrities fans think is behind that mask:
