The Masked Singer Australia: Cody Simpson AKA The Robot wins

• The inaugural winner of The Masked Singer Australia was revealed to be Cody Simpson under the guise of the Robot.

On Monday The first season of the Masked Singer came to an end on 10, with the Monster being revealed as Gorgi Coghlan, the Wolf was Rob Mills, and the Robot was Cody Simpson.

Gorgi Coghlan was announced as the second runner up as she was revealed to be the Monster, the Australian television presenter, singer and former scientist is best known for co-hosting 10’s The Circle between 2010 and 2012, and for her work on The Project.

Reducing the panel to tears, an emotional Gorgi said: “Mum has always said to me, why are you wasting that beautiful voice? Mum had a really tough battle with brain cancer 18 months ago. Mum… this is your wish. Here I am.” 

The runner up was revealed to be Rob Mills who first came to fame on the first season of Australian Idol in 2003 where he first met Osher Günsberg. Millsy did better on The Masked Singer than he did on Australian Idol where he finished fifth with the Wolf getting to him to within one spot of winning it all.

The man behind Wolf told host Osher Günsberg: “I have been doing Neighbours for the past couple of years and I am always in a studio with a crew and no audience. I needed a stage and I wanted to have some fun.”

For his final solo performance, Robot rocked the house with his performance of Lady Gaga’s The Edge of Glory, and Lindsay Lohan, Jackie O, Dave Hughes and Dannii Minogue took their final stabs at who was behind the Robot mask.  

Dave Hughes guessed 5 Seconds Of Summer drummer Ashton Irwin, while Dannii and Jackie were convinced it was Niall Horan or Liam Payne from One Direction fame.

With Cody having dated her sister Aliana, Lohan had a lightbulb moment at the end of his final performance guessing correctly that it was in fact, Cody Simpson.

Simpson said: “I’m mates with Niall and Ashton… I am going to make sure they watch it. This is a top shelfer in the cabinet for sure!”
