Jordin Sparks as Exotic Bird on The Masked Dancer

It was Jordin!

She was actually unmasked after dancing to Paula‘s “Opposites Attract.”

“When they told me that [Abdul] was judging, the first thing that popped into my head was I can’t believe that all this time later I’m now going to be on another competition show stage with her sitting at the judging panel,” Jordin shared with Variety. “That blew my mind. And I was like, she’s gonna know. When she guessed me, I was floored but I was actually very happy that it was her guessing. It was a really cool moment.”

She added that signing on and dancing on stage was “a little bit nerve racking.”

“Everybody was encouraging me to do it and then I realized that I was the person telling me that I couldn’t. And so, I wanted to do the show and I said yes because I want to do this and prove to myself that I can take on challenges and take on things, even if they scare me a little bit.”

Jordin‘s inspiration for being part of the show was her son, DJ, three.

“I wanted to show him that I can do things even if they scare me. He was very instrumental in inspiring me to go, and my husband as well.”
