The singer competed in the bottom against another unidentified singer, only known as Thingamajig.

Michelle sang Believer by Imagine Dragons in the battle, with the other singer opting for Caught Up by Usher.

Throughout the series, hints are dropped about the identity of each singer for viewers and the shows judges to guess who is behind the mask.

Panellists on the show Ken Jeong, Jenny McCarthy, Nicole Scherzinger and Robin Thicke guessed the star could be Leona Lewis, Monica or Kerri Washington.

They also correctly predicted it could be Michelle Williams.

Other stars unveiled to be competing on the show included Raven Symone, Kelly Osbourne and Patti Labelle.

A UK version of the show is set to premiere on ITV in 2020 with Rita Ora, Davina McCall, Jonathon Ross, Ken Jeong as panellists and Joel Dommett as host.
