The Masked Singer spoilers follow.

The Masked Singer US has just pulled another surprising twist out of the bag, after yesterday's (April 7) episode revealed the celebrity identity of Wildcard contestant Bulldog.

After reviewing the performances of Black Swan, Bulldog, Piglet, Crab and Chameleon, Nash sent Bulldog home with their tail between their legs – despite them dedicating their rendition of New Edition's 'Candy Girl' to her.

The drama didn't stop there, though, as Bulldog was later unmasked as the series' regular host Nick Cannon, who had taken time away from the show after testing positive for coronavirus (COVID-19).
