In case you missed it, the 16-year-old singer just revealed that she has been performing on the reality singing competition series (that features celebrities concealed in head-to-toe costumes) all season long. But rocking out on stage in a huge, heavy head-piece wasn’t the the most difficult thing about being on the fan-favorite show — it was keeping her identity a secret!
We caught up with the unmasked contestant, who revealed that one time she almost accidentally let the secret slip! Apparently, on set there are only certain “safe people” allowed to see all the stars without their costumes on. One time in an elevator, she thought she was surrounded by all safe people, and wanted to take off her shielding visor, but just as she was taking it off, one of her safe people reminded her that not everyone in the elevator was safe! That was a close one!
“I put my mask on so fast, but it was fine, he didn’t end up figuring out who I was, but I was like oh my gosh that was so close!”
