Spoiler alert: Click away if you do not wish to know details about the upcoming season of The Masked Singer.

Deadline has reported that attorney and former NYC Mayor Rudy Giuliani is due to appear as a contestant on the upcoming season of The Masked Singer. The episode was recorded last week and will reportedly be screened when the show returns to our screens next month.

According to sources, when Giuliani was unmasked, two of the judges—Robin Thicke and Ken Jeong—both got up and stormed out in protest. Deadline did not reveal the costume Giuliani wore, so you can still watch the show without it being immediately obvious who he is.

Giuliani was famously an attorney for President Donald Trump, and he repeatedly backed Trump’s unproven claims that the election was stolen in 2020.

The Masked Singer‘s other two judges, Jenny McCarthy and Nicole Scherzinger, remained on stage and questioned Giuliani about his claims on the election.

It’s not the first time The Masked Singer has featured a controversial, right-wing figure. In March 2020 it featured Sarah Palin in a bear costume. However, her appearance did not prompt such a terse response from the judges.

Last summer it was revealed that Giuliani, a former top federal prosecutor in Manhattan, was barred from practicing law in New York because of his claims about the 2020 election. In recent months, he has turned to asking supporters to donate money and to selling videos on Cameo in an effort to raise funds.
