Teyana Taylor won season seven of The Masked Singer on Wednesday after performing as Firefly on the hit Fox show.

Confetti rained down on her when she was crowned the winner and show host Nick Cannon, 41, asked her why she decided to be on the show.

'I was like this would be something really nice to do, and just be able to just sing and it'll be fun again, and there's just no judgment,' the 31-year-old R&B artist said. 'Nobody knows who's behind the mask. You just get to sing your heart out.'

'That's what you did. You sang your heart out and you won. Your husband just won Dancing With The Stars and now you won The Masked Singer,' Nick said. 'Y'all got all types of trophies at the crib.'

'Yeah, I got to put this next to the Mirror Ball,' Teyana said referencing the show's coveted Golden Mask trophy.

Earlier in the show Teyana, as Firefly, performed an emotional rendition of 'Lost Without U' by Robin Thicke. After winning, she said the song was very dear to her.

'I cried the whole time I sang it, so this means a lot to me, and thank you so much,' Teyana said. 'I'm so humbled and so grateful.'

'I'm flattered and choked up,' Robin, 45, said when she performed his song. 'That song was supposed to feel exactly the way you made it feel.'

Before she was unmasked, each of the panelists tried to guess her identity. Firefly's clues included: a basketball net, a keyboard, and a faded 'M.' 

Firefly, wearing a tight black latex outfit and a giant insect inspired mask, took the stage and performed Bad Girl by Usher.
