‘The Masked Singer’: Judges shocked following Baby reveal
LOS ANGELES - This week’s "The Masked Singer" reveal will certainly leave you crying, not out of sadness but because the celebrity behind the Baby costume is a hoot and a half.
The Baby belted out some major notes during their performance of "The Flintstones" theme song. A fitting selection considering the performer hiding beneath the baby bonnet.
Sadly, the Baby was sent back to his crib. Fortunately, there was no temper tantrum after none other than the legendary comedian, Larry the Cable Guy was revealed as the masked singer.
"This show has crushed every dream I’ve ever had," Larry said following his elimination. "I thought I sand good, ‘Hey, I’m going well out here,’ and the next thing you know," after which the comedian blows a raspberry to announce his ultimate defeat.

"I wouldn’t be surprised if you see me on the street corner somewhere begging for some kind of money and it’s all because of this show," Larry added.
While the cable guy is unable to mask his disappointment, he was able to admit the show was a blast.
"It is a fun show," he said. "I’ve never done anything like this before. I’ve never sang in front of anybody before. I mean, I can tell jokes in front of 8,000 people, no sweat, but I can’t karaoke in front of five."
To throw the judges off the trail, Larry used a British/Australian accent because according to him, the judges would have recognized his signature southern drawl, and if nothing else, they would have recognized the voice of Tater from Disney’s Pixar, "Cars."

He even had to refrain himself from saying his signature catchphrase: "Git-r-done."
"Let’s face facts, they were stunned that I was that awesome at singing songs," Larry said. "Who am I kidding. That’s why I fooled them, because I’m freaking awesome!"
After performing on "The Masked Singer," Larry the Cable Guy learned two things: never put on a hot baby suit while eating chili the night before and the second thing is, "Don’t put extra cheese on that chili."
Larry announced on Twitter that his next endeavor following his singing debut would be Riverdance.
