"We'd given up on guessing you!"

Australian music legend Christine Anu was last night revealed as the latest contestant on The Masked Singer Australia.

The multiple ARIA Award winner was unveiled as the Goldfish (don't get it? Catch up here) after being voted out on the third episode of the Channel Ten show's second season. 

The reveal came after Anu performed Bon Jovi's It's My Life, with judges Urzila Carlson, Dave Hughes, Jackie O and Dannii Minogue all failing to correctly guess the Goldfish's identity.

"The weirdest thing is, we guessed your name so many times last year!" Minogue told Anu after the reveal, while Jackie O added, "We'd given up on guessing you!"

It was another big night in the ratings for the show, with TV Tonight reporting that 929,000 viewers tuning in to watch the reveal, securing it as the fifth most watched show of the night - only behind the Seven and Nine news programs. The performances segment also placed in the top 10 for the night (coming in eighth behind ABC News and A Current Affair) with 767,000 viewers.

Twitter was again flooded with guesses for who this year's contestants could be as well. Popular guesses this week included theatre star Eddie Perfect as Frillneck, musician Kate Miller-Heidke for Queen and radio host Denis Walter for Puppet.
