Donny Osmond placed second in “The Masked Singer” Season 1. He was the masked singer behind the Peacock costume.
The final episode of “The Masked Singer” Season 1 titled “The Final Mask is Lifted” aired on Fox on February 27, 2019. Including Osmond, the three finalists gave their respective final performances.
As the Peacock, Osmond performed “Shake a Tail Feather,” a song originally recorded by The Five Du-Tones and performed by Ray Charles in the 1980 film “The Blues Brothers.” After performing, Osmond told host Nick Cannon, “I have been in show business a long time but this is probably the most fun thing I’ve ever done.”
Only Jenny McCarthy correctly guessed Osmond during the final guesses of the panelists. Robin Thicke and Kenan Thompson guessed Weird Al Yankovic while Ken Jeong and Nicole Scherzinger guessed Neil Patrick Harris.
Wearing the Monster costume, Faheem Rasheed Najm, who is professionally known as T-Pain, won “The Masked Singer” Season 1. Gladys Knight, the woman behind the Bee costume, finished third.
Joey Fatone, the Rabbit, finished fourth while Rumer Willis, the Lion, finished fifth. The other contestants who competed but did not make it to the semi-finals were La Toya Jackson as the Alien, Ricki Lake as the Raven, Tori Spelling as the Unicorn, Margaret Cho as the Poodle, Terry Bradshaw as the Deer, Tommy Chong as the Pineapple and Antonio Brown as the Hippo.
Born on December 9, 1957 in Ogden, Utah, United States, Osmond is the seventh son of George Virl Osmond and Olive May. Donny and her younger sister Marie Osmond are collectively known as Donny and Marie, a singing duo that has been headlining in Las Vegas, Nevada, USA since 2008.
“The Masked Singer” Season 1 is not the reality competition show Donny competed in. He also competed in “Dancing with the Stars” Season 9 and won, besting 15 other celebrity contestants.
