Dragon was unmasked and his identity was revealed after getting the least amount of votes during the season premiere of The Masked Singer Season 4 (2020).
Prior to his elimination, Dragon performed a powerful version of “Mama Said Knock You Out” by LL Cool J. He was pitted against masked singers Giraffe, Popcorn, Snow Owls, and Sun.
So who is the Dragon Masked Singer?
Considering the clues and his vocals, many of The Masked Singer fans immediately made the correct guess that Dragon is American rapper, musician, singer, record producer, record executive, and actor Busta Rhymes. Among the panelists, Robin Thicke and Nicole Scherzinger made the right call by saying Dragon is none other than Busta.
As to their first impression guesses, Jenny McCarthy thought Dragon was NFL star Adrian Peterson and later guessed DMX after hearing Dragon’s voice. Ken Jeong’s first impression of Dragon is that he’s American football running back Marshawn Lynch. He later guessed that Dragon is Michael Phelps, because of all the gold in the clues package. Nicole’s first impression is Busta Rhymes and stuck with her guess in light of all the clues pointing to Busta. Like Nicole, Robin Thicke’s first impression guess was also Busta Rhymes because of the clues in the package.
