There were two spectacular reveals on Sunday’s episode of The Masked Singer.

The show must go on? Macy Gray apparently refused to leave The Masked Singer after being voted off on Sunday, leading to an awkward stand-off with producers as she begged to stay

One of the show’s judges, Dave ‘Hughesy’ Hughes, said Macy, 54, ‘refused to leave’ despite being told it was time to take off her mask and say goodbye.

‘Macy Gray had such passion for The Masked Singer that when she was told that she had to leave the show, which you saw last night, she refused to leave the show,’ the comedian said on 2Day FM’s Morning Crew.

‘She said, “No, I’m continuing in the show,” and there had to be a discussion which went for quite a while as to, “No, you have to leave.” She said, “No, I’m not leaving.”

‘The thing is, we can’t do the end of the show unless the head comes off.’

Co-host Ed Kavalee then said: ‘So, she still had the head on, and they’re saying, “Hey, Macy-slash-Atlantis, we need you to take the head off so you can go.”

‘[And] she’s responding, “No I’m keeping the head on”?’ 

Fellow anchor Erin Molan then speculated that Macy wanted to stay on the show longer to secure a bigger payday.

‘I don’t know the contractual situation…’ Hughesy responded, adding that Macy took a lot of convincing before she agreed to take her mask off and leave.

Show-stopper: Macy was unmasked as Atlantis on Sunday’s episode of The Masked Singer
