“Take it off! Take it off!” That deafening audience roar coming from Stage 46 at Hollywood’s Television City can mean only one thing: The Masked Singer‘s final three contestants will soon doff their disguises as one is crowned the winner.

“It’s the most suspenseful [finale] yet!” says judge Jenny McCarthy Wahlberg of the reality hit’s Season 3 wrap-up airing May 20.

TV Guide Magazine was the only press invited to watch it all unfold. The vocal competition pits celebrities — made anonymous by extravagant costumes such as Frog and Turtle — against one another; their identities remain hidden until they are voted off.

This episode taped in February, before the coronavirus shut down production. “If there was a show right now that America needs, it’s this one,” Wahlberg says. “The whole family can watch.”

Judges and audience members alike got emotional during the six-hour taping, which includes Singer‘s first duet. Nicole Scherzinger “has cried more this season than [on] most soap operas,” Wahlberg jokes of her fellow judge. (Ken Jeong and Robin Thicke round out the panel.) She adds: “I’m the tough tomboy who found myself with watery eyes and goose bumps.”
