Split decision: Eliminated 'Masked Singer' duo revealed as musical power couple

American Idol alumni just can’t catch a break on The Masked Singer

Two years ago, Idol rocker Chris Daughtry, who lost on one of American Idol's most shocking elimination nights to Katharine McPhee, competed as the Rottweiler on The Masked Singer Season 2. And while he made it to that Masked Singer finale, he ultimately lost yet again, this time to Wayne “The Fox” Brady. (“I'm just not good at winning s***,” he memorably told Yahoo Entertainment. “That's my destiny. I'm a very solid runner-up. I'm so good at being the runner-up.”)

And now, on Wednesday’s Masked Singer Season 6 Group B finals, we learned that none other than Katharine McPhee herself was one-half of this season's newly eliminated cool duo, the Banana Split. (Kat was the ice cream scoop; her husband, 16-time Grammy-winner David Foster, was the fellow in the seemingly borrowed-from-Bret Michaels banana outfit.) 


And while Katharine did make it to the finale in her Idol season (ultimately losing to Taylor Hicks), she and her Foster-freeze silent partner missed this year’s Masked Singer finale by just one week. I guess Kat is “just not good at winning s***” as well.

But Katharine seemed delighted to have had this unique Masked Singer experience with her husband by her side. “We are not a conventional relationship. There can be lots of quick judgments about me and him together,” she said of their decision to compete on the show. “And we just thought, 'Wow, this is such a cool opportunity to present ourselves.' We just truly love each other, and it's best not to judge people, right?”
