Some of the visual items and objects associated with the Night Angel’s identity throughout the season included a castle, strawberry, a roaring fireplace, a white hand fan, a motel, ducks, and the number 4.

Before her finale performance, the Night Angel dropped a few more clues about her identity. She said “When I first got here, I was terrified of failure because for so long I convinced myself that I wasn’t enough.” She revealed a big clue about her identity, teasing “When I didn’t find success as a solo artist, I decided to develop other businesses.” As a mother, she revealed that it was hard for her to encourage her kids to follow their dreams if she wasn’t following her own.
The Night Angel Stood Out as a Top Vocalist Throughout the Season
From her very first performance, the Night Angel impressed the panelists with her strong singing voice, and it only improved with each round of the competition.
Night Angel secured her place in the finals with a cover of “How to Love” by Lil Wayne (who competed in season 3 as the Robot).
The Night Angel’s finale performance of “River Deep, Mountain High” was a show-stopper, so it’s no surprise that she won season 3 as the show’s first female champion. As the panelists praised her performance, the Night Angel tearfully told them “Your positive words have made me feel so good.”
The Masked Singer season 4 premieres in Fall 2020 on FOX.
