Amber Riley Shares How She Felt About Her Win on the Masked Singer

Amber Riley was finally able to take off her mask on The Masked Singer season eight finale, after winning the entire season as the Harp. The season premiered on September 21, 2022, and Amber blew fans and the judges away with her powerful and familiar voice.

Amber Riley Was the Harp

Amber Riley Shares How She Felt About Her Win On The Masked Singer

Amber Riley sang classics like “I Have Nothing” by Whitney Houston and “Gravity” by John Mayer, showing off her impressive range and solidifying herself as the front-runner early on. Speaking during an interview after the finale, Amber said she was relieved to finally be able to answer questions about whether she was the one behind the mask. Her fans knew it was her, thanks to her unmistakable voice, and even Amber knew she couldn’t keep her talent a secret.

Riley said she knew with certainty that Nicole Scherzinger was going to know who she was. She figured maybe not the first night but thought there was no way that she wouldn’t figure things out. She was definitely anticipating that she would be unmasked sooner, and it was always really awkward for her when people would guess who she was, and she had to make sure her body language didn’t let people know that they were right. So, she didn’t want anybody to know it was her, but she was worried her voice was a little too recognizable.

Nicole Scherzinger Surely Recognized Riley

The Masked Singer is a unique and entertaining show that features celebrities hidden under character masks. The celebrities, who may be singers, athletes, actors, or other public figures, perform songs live each week, and the judges deliberate to determine who will be eliminated. In the season finale, Amber Riley, known as the Harp, faced off against Wilson Phillips, who was disguised as the Lambs.

The Masked Singer is a light-hearted and fun show, making it a great choice for family viewers and a good guessing game. The show has certainly provided some hilarious moments, like the singing and dancing of Rob Gronkowski and Adrienne Bailon’s wonderful voice.

Nikki Bella Chose Her Dress 30 Minutes Prior to the Wedding Ceremony

Nikki Bella married the love of her life and didn’t spend more than half an hour choosing the dress. It shows true love does conquer all – even the insane tradition of women spending months on end selecting every detail of their wedding. She and Artem Chigvintsev are now happily married with a son named Mateo, who they welcomed in 2020.

The Relationship’s Begining

The couple had a cute, albeit unlikely, start to their relationship. They met on season 25 of Dancing With the Stars, which premiered on September 18, 2017. At that time, our lovely Total Bellas star, Nikki, was engaged to another man. There may be a few people who haven’t heard of her then-fiance, John Cena. Once the couple split, Nikki and Artem reunited in 2019 and began their romance. Soon after, in 2020, they welcomed their son – Mateo!

A Quick Wedding and Lasting Love

Fans of the couple were really looking forward to a grand entrance from Nikki Bella and her husband-to-be, Artem, down the aisle, but none got their wish. The couple surprised fans with a quick wedding in Paris on August 27, 2022. They announced the news on her Instagram account with a picture of their wedding rings and a photo of the couple looking out to the horizon. The wedding was as romantic as they wanted it to be, without the hassle.

A Star in Her Dress

Nikki revealed in an interview about her decision-making process and why she made such a quick choice on the dress. She explained that when a woman is a bride, it’s all about the fashion journey and what dress will make her feel like herself – beautiful and confident. Miss Bella had bought two dresses for her previous wedding that never was, so she used one of them.

Nikki Bella and her husband, Artem Chigvintsev, are now insanely happy and didn’t need a big wedding to make that happen. They just needed a cute beginning and unwavering love to push through it all, and of course, their baby – Matteo! Arten even stated that “It feels good to be married.”
