'The Masked Singer' Viewers Angry As Jennifer Holliday Voted Off In Double Elimination: 'The Same Show That Sent Chaka Khan Home'

Fans are angry that The Masked Singer audience voted out Jennifer Holliday, despite her performances being some of the best of the season.

According to Meaww, Holliday, who performed as Miss Teddy, was eliminated by the audience during the Group B’s semi-finals. The big winner of the night was the Ringmaster, who moved on to the finale with Firefly. But many viewers were wondering how Holliday could have not moved on as well.

"I am happy I don't watch #TheMaskedSinger," wrote one commenter. "[T]hey are always kicking out the best singers. How is #JenniferHoliday [sic] kicked out? [W]ho votes, the judges or the public?"

Another wrote they felt Holliday should have won the season, with another writing, "Disappointed that Jennifer Holiday [sic] is going home but this is the same show that sent Chaka Khan home. I love #MaskedSinger but go figure. (shrugging shoulders)"

Another wrote how "sad" they were that "all the diva legends get unmasked every season, what a shame!"

A viewer shared a similar sentiment, writing, "How do they get so many legends on #TheMaskedSinger just to vote them off????!!!!!"

As the fans have written, the show has sent several legends home, including Khan and Patti LaBelle, despite their iconic voices shining beyond the outlandish character costumes.

In fairness, Faith Evans made it to the finale of her season, but like with a lot of singing competition shows, The Masked Singer seems to follow in the tradition of unfairly sending home much of its top talent.
