What we know about the Astronaut

  • Here’s what the Astronaut said about his or her identity, according to Variety: “My ‘Masked Singer’ journey couldn’t have come at a better time in my life. For years I’ve been searching for a chance to blast away labels that have been imposed on me. On my old planet, something happened that changed the course of my career. I was forced to start over. But negativity made it tough to launch again. But here, in this new world, I have an incredible support system around me. I’m free to break boundaries and explore new territories. No tether attached. I’m not a competitive guy, but boy, do I want to plant my flag in that finale.”
  • The Astronaut wears a gold space suit.
  • He has performed “You Say” by Lauren Daigle, a Christian music artist, according to GoodHouseKeeping.com (via Yahoo! News).
  • He said he once took a “huge nose dive” and fell on his face in front of people.
  • Astronaut and judge Nicole Scherzinger once went to the mall together for a birthday party.

Other guesses
