“Miss Monster has been through a lot, and she hasn’t always been seen in the press for who she really is,” her hairstylist said.
The panel made guesses like Mary J. Blige, Dolly Parton, Dionne Warwick, Gloria Gaynor and Queen Latifah, but Miss Monster was ultimately revealed to be Chaka Khan, whose hits include “Ain’t Nobody,” “I’m Every Woman” and “I Feel for You.”
The singer was voted off, but Khan called her time on the show liberating “because I could do what I wanted” while sporting a mask.
“It was great fun, and it was very different. I’m glad that I had a nice little stay and we did well,” she said.
Panelist Nicole Scherzinger tweeted that she couldn’t believe such a legend had taken the stage.
