MASKED SINGER’s Astronaut Revealed to Be Country Superstar With Faith Background

Note: This article contains spoilers from the latest episode of THE MASKED SINGER

The mission is over for the astronaut, as the man behind the costume was sent home on the latest episode of THE MASKED SINGER.

The astronaut was revealed to be none other than popular country artist, and Christian, Hunter Hayes.

Hayes said he enjoyed the overall experience, but did hide one thing from producers when trying to get on the show.

“In one of the questionnaires when you sign up, they ask you if you’re claustrophobic. I’ve had both experiences. I’ve had experiences where I have zero problem being in a confined space, but I’ve also had, like, mild panic attacks being in confined spaces. But I didn’t want them to know that. I won’t say I lied, but I didn’t really tell them about the potential for claustrophobia.”

He also said he learned how powerful emotions can be behind a song.

In order to stay in the competition he knew, “It wasn’t about perfection, it was about emotion.”

The country star added, “It’s always been part of my story, writing songs and being honest with the world. But starting from that pure emotional place has kind of risen back, has come back as a priority.”

Hayes told EW he would definitely recommend other celebrities to do the show, and he gave this advice.

“You have to just go in and have fun with it. That sounds simple, but it’s really easy to get caught in the technicalities of dance moves and choreography and staging.”

He continued, “But at the end of the day, the times where you just have fun were the times where I felt like I had a chance of moving on to the next round and. I would encourage anybody to do it!”

While on the show, one of the songs the country singer sang Lauren Daigle’s hit song “You Say.”

Hayes has been quiet in the music world lately, however he is known to share his faith in his songs. Some of those songs are “Faith To Fall Back On” and “Dear God.”
