The Masked Singer

Fox

Despite some truly LOL-worthy guesses for some of the competitors in week four, two of the judges actually nailed who the performer under the Skeleton was on The Masked Singer.

Spoilers follow!

Paul Shaffer, the co-creator of the Blues Brothers and the band leader who was by David Letterman's side for decades, was under the mask. Sorry Ken Jeong, it wasn't Martin Short, despite the clues that convinced the good doctor it was the comedy legend. Hey, Short and Shaffer are friends. 

After he revealed his identity, Shaffer said being on The Masked Singer was far nuttier than being by Letterman's side.

"It gave me a chance to try songs that I never thought I could pull off in real life," Schafer said. As for the judges guessing his identity early on, Shaffer said, "They had my number from the very beginning. I don't know why I even bothered."
