'The Masked Singer' Finale Recap: Famous Actress Named as Winner of Season 11

The highly-anticipated Finale of the hit FOX series sees the finalists, Gumball and Goldfish, hitting the stage to sing for one last time before one of them is revealed to be the winner.

AceShowbiz - It was time to crown the winner of "The Masked Singer" season 11. Airing on Wednesday, May 22, the highly-anticipated Finale saw the finalists, Gumball and Goldfish, hitting the stage to sing for one last time before one of them was named as the winner.

Gumball was up first. In his clue package, Gumball said, "In my life, I've had to fight to be seen. Imagine trying to do something thousands of times and only being successful a handful of them. And yet, in Hollywood, that's considered a victory. I've been on TV for almost two decades nonstop, and yet being here I feel like I've finally gotten to show who I really am," adding that he would do his best that night.

For the first performance of the night, Gumball opted to sing "Latch" by Disclosure featuring Sam Smith. He surprised everyone with his beatboxing. Panelist Ken Jeong thought Gumball could be Jamie Dornan or Taran Killam. Jenny McCarthy named James Marsden, Jason Sudeikis and Derek Hough. Robin Thicke guessed Kevin Jonas, Zachary Levi or James Van Der Beek. Meanwhile, Rita Ora went with Chace Crawford, Jack Black, Taylor Kitsch or Joseph Gordon-Levitt.

Goldfish followed it up. She said in her clue package, "I come from a working-class family that has no connection to Hollywood whatsoever, so there's no reason I should have made it. But I'm proof that with enough love, hard work and dedication, you can truly do anything. And, I'm so proud of my performances and I can't wait to have kids when that time comes so I can be like, 'Look at mommy go!' "

For the Finale, Goldfish chose to belt out "Heart of Glass" by Blondie. For the guesses, Rita named Lea Michele, Nina Dobrev or Vanessa Hudgens. Jenny thought Goldfish could be Selena Gomez, Sarah Hyland or Julianne Hough. Robin guessed Hilary Duff, while Ken went with Carly Rae Jepsen, Kristen Stewart and Nicole Scherzinger.

Gumball later returned to the stage for the final performance. This time, he sang "Renegade" by Styx, exciting the panelists. Gumball said, "Tonight, that performance was really about my folks. I told you that they had been in a rock band, but they never were able to pay the bills through their artistry, so they worked hard. Forty, 60, 80 hours a week, just to get to the weekend so they could do what they love and perform on stage. So, I realize now why it was so special to them, because I know tomorrow I go back to my day job. This has been the time of my life and I'm so thankful and honored to have been on this stage. Thank you."

As for Goldfish, she belted out Elton John's "Don't Let the Sun Go Down on Me". "This experience has been so incredible and so special for me," Goldfish shared following the emotional performance. "It really surprised me because not everybody knows what I actually do, and the fact that you guys have all truly seen me for what I love doing really lights a fire under my little fish tail. Thank you guys so much, it means the world to me."

It was later time for host Nick Cannon to reveal the winner. "Gumball, Goldfish…this isn't the first time you've been co-stars on camera," Nick shared one final clue, before naming Goldfish as the winner of "The Masked Singer" season 11.

But before Goldfish revealed her identity, Gumball had to unmask himself. For the final guesses, Jenny and Robin guessed Derek Hough. Ken thought he was Taran Killam, while Rita went with Joseph Gordon-Levitt. None of them got it right because Gumball was unmasked to be "Friday Night Lights" and "Ginny & Georgia" star Scott Porter.

It's time to find out the celebrity under the Goldfish costume. Rita and Jenny believed she was Vanessa Hudgens, Ken guessed Nicole Scherzinger, while Robin named Hilary Duff. As Goldfish removed her mask, it was revealed that she was "High School Musical" star Vanessa Hudgens!
