Season four of The Masked Singer wrapped on Wednesday night (Dec. 16) and LeAnn Rimes was revealed as the singer behind the sun costume and the overall champion of the season.

Rimes made it to the finale after singing “When the Party’s Over” by Billie Eilish during the semi-finals and closed out her run on the show with a cover of “The Story” by Brandi Carlile.

Only two of The Masked Singer judges, Jenny McCarthy Wahlberg and Nicole Scherzinger, were able to guess that Rimes was behind the Sun. Ken Jeong thought Mandy Moore was behind the mask, while Robin Thicke believed it was Katharine McPhee.

Previous guesses included Demi Lovato, Madonna, Carrie Underwood, Jewel and Kate Hudson.

“I never thought I would do anything like this and I don’t think I’ll ever do anything like it again,” Rimes told Variety. “It’s such a unique show. I had no idea what I was getting myself into and I’m so glad I did.”

Rimes went on to share how she found comfort in being on the show amid the COVID-19 pandemic as it allowed her the chance to perform.
