‘The Masked Singer’ Season 4 Finale Preview
Competing in the season 4 finale of The Masked Singer are the Crocodile, the Sun, and the Mushroom. All 3 contestants have been strong singers and performers throughout the season, and it’s really anyone’s competition to win. Each contestant will offer final clues as to who their secret star identity really is, and perform final songs in the hopes of earning votes from the audience and panel of celebrity judges.
