Controversial Emmy- and Golden Globe-winning actress is revealed on 'Masked Singer'

Many agreed that the Baby Mammoth might be the cutest in Masked Singer history, which made it harder to say goodbye to her Wednesday night, when she received the lowest amount of votes and had to unmask.

Underneath the Baby Mammoth disguise was Emmy- and Golden Globe-winning actress Kirstie Alley, who gained success with her role as Rebecca Howe in the long-running sitcom Cheers.

Following her unmasking, Alley shared that being on The Masked Singer was sort of a mammoth undertaking as she shared, "I've done a lot of things in my career, but I've never gotten to be in the circus." However, Alley also explained that she wanted to go on the show for her grandkids.

"I have grandchildren, and they're really young, so they're gonna think this is good," said Alley.

As for the viewers, some weren't too thrilled about seeing Alley, who has occasionally come under fire for voicing her conservative political views, especially after last week's controversial episode during which Rudy Giuliani was unmasked. Fortunately for Alley, her unmasking didn't create negative vibes in the room like Giuliani did. In fact, even celebrity panelist Ken Jeong stayed this time as opposed to last week when he stormed off set.
