The Masked Singer is returning for its fifth season next week! Jake’s Take has covered this FOX performance-based competition since its pilot episode. As a new group of performers prepares to enter the stage, here are the 16 Masked Singer performances that I believe are part of the show’s hall of fame.

Peacock (Donny Osmond)’s cover of “The Greatest Show” put The Masked Singer on the map. (Video property of FOX)

#16-Peacock (Donny Osmond): “The Greatest Show (Season One)

The show’s production team had the Peacock be the first Masked Singer to start the series. The Peacock brought a Vegas-style show every single time he took the stage. Without showbiz legend Donny Osmond’s spectacular first performance, the show would not be entering its fifth season.

Black Widow (Raven-Symone) paid homage to Whitney Houston with a superb cover of “I Wanna Dance with Somebody.” (Video property of FOX)

#15-Black Widow (Raven-Symone): “I Wanna Dance with Somebody” (Season Two)

Black Widow was one of my favorite masked performers that took the stage by storm. Of all of Raven’s excellent performances on the show, it was her beautiful tribute to Whitney Houston that made me smile and dance!

A certain Masked Singer fan-favorite made a cameo appearance during Miss Monster (Chaka Khan)’s “Something to Talk About” (Video property of FOX)

#14-Miss Monster (Chaka Khan): “Something to Talk About” (Season Three)

I knew Miss Monster was music legend Chaka Khan from the first few notes of “Something to Talk About.” In addition to her fantastic vocal performance, a cameo from the show’s original winner – The Monster, was the icing on the cake.

Astronaut (Hunter Hayes)’s cover of “Story of My Life” was one of the best performances from Masked Singer: Season Three. (Video property of FOX)

#13-Astronaut (Hunter Hayes): “Story of My Life” (Season Three)

Country music star Hunter Hayes was one of the few masked performers I was able to identify immediately when he took the stage as the Astronaut. For his final feat on the show, Hunter delivered an outstanding cover of One Direction’s “Story of My Life.” 

Emmy-winning talk show host Ricki Lake moved audiences with her performance of Kesha’s “Rainbow” during the first season of The Masked Singer. (Video property of FOX)

#12-Raven (Ricki Lake): “Rainbow (Kesha)” (Season One)

One of the show’s first emotional performances was Raven’s goose-bump-inducing cover of Kesha’s “Rainbow.” The Emmy-winning talk show host gave viewers chills during the show’s second week of competition. Sadly, Raven was unmasked four weeks later. 

The Snow Owls made history as the first duo to compete on The Masked Singer. (Video property of FOX)

#11-The Snow Owls (Clint Black & Lisa Hartman Black): “Say Something” (Season Four)

The Snow Owls became The Masked Singer’s first duo. The legendary country music power couple delivered a stunning performance of A Great Big World and Christina Aguilera’s haunting cover of “Say Something” and set the standard for future duos

Popcorn (Taylor Dayne) brought the house down with her powerful cover of Tina Turner’s “Better Be Good to Me.” (Video property of FOX)

#10-Popcorn (Taylor Dayne): “Better Be Good to Me” (Season Four) Countless fans were shocked to see the Popcorn unmask before the Season Four finale. However, the “Tell It to My Heart” singer-songwriter delivered a bombastic performance that showcased her passion for performing with a save-me performance the fans will never forget! 

The Atlanta Housewife delivered a moving performance of Lady Gaga’s “Million Reasons.” (Video property of FOX)

#9-Night Angel (Kandi Burruss): “Million Reasons” (Season Three)

The Season Three winner began her dominance on The Masked Singer’s stage was her performance of Lady Gaga’s “Million Reasons.” Night Angel(Kandi)’s powerful vocals cemented her place in the competition and gave the audience chills.
