Glee star Heather Morris turned out to be the celebrity behind Scissors, as she won The Masked Dancer 2022.
In the final tonight, Pearly King was uncovered as Strictly Come Dancing judge Bruno Tonioli and Adam Garcia came runner-up as Onomatopoeia.
Which put Heather in first place, crowned the winner of the series.
While some of the clues linked to her Glee character Brittany (like the bowl of Cheerios hinting at Brittany’s Cheer-Squad name in the show the pom-poms in her final dance), Heather finally unveiled other clues at the end, like revealing she was a back-up dancer for Beyoncé, one of the reasons behind her Single Ladies hint.
