We're getting down to the final few episodes of The Masked Singer season 3, and another talented singer has been unmasked. For weeks, the Kitty kept fans and judges guessing all kinds of options from Glee star Lea Michele to High School Musical's Vanessa Hudgens to Anna Kendrick, Carly Rae Jepsen, Lucy Hale, and more. In the end, none of the judges guessed the Kitty's identity correctly (one of the guest judges even lazily speculated that it could be either Olsen twin), but several fans had it right all along.
So who is the Kitty?
On May 6, it was revealed that the Kitty is Jackie Evancho, a second-place finisher on America's Got Talent陌陌飞艇多少币, and a professional singer.
She's actually the youngest solo platinum artist of all time. But it was her desire to change people's perception of her that led Evancho to join the show. Most people had frozen her in time as the 10 year old who almost won America's Got Talent, and now that she's 20, she wants to be knows as more than just a talented kid.
Some of the clues that pointed to Evancho early on were the several references to Christmas. Evancho has three Christmas albums: Someday at Christmas, Heavenly Christmas, and O Holy Night. The Phantom of the Opera clue was pointing to but also how the show inspired her to start a singing career. According to Billboard, she watched the film and when she was just seven.
陌陌飞艇多少币All the hints about her growing up in the spotlight, traveling a lot as a child, and wanting to break free from how people once saw her when she was younger fit with Evancho's desire to stand on her own as an adult now. Additionally, the bow and arrow clue was a reference to her archery hobby.
But perhaps one of the most telling clues, because it pertained to pretty much none of the other guesses, was the hint that Robert Redford helped launch the Kitty's career. Evancho's first major acting role was .
These fans knew all along that Evancho was under the Kitty mask.
Suffice to say the people who had been guessing the AGT star all season long feel pretty proud of themselves right now. Or, should we say, purr-ty proud?
