Last season saw the show’s first-ever four-person finale between Cow, Donut, Gazelle and Sea Queen. Cow ended up nabbing first place and he unmasked as R&B singer NE-YO.

“It gave me the opportunity to step outside my wheelhouse a little bit,” the Grammy winner, 44, told PEOPLE of dressing as a female cow on The Masked Singer. “As a male cow, I could probably still dance like me. I'm definitely going to sound like me. And I was like, yeah, I'll get caught quick like that. But as a female cow, I got huge breasts and hips and the whole nine, so I can't move the way NE-YO would normally move.”

The father of seven had a special place picked out to store his trophy.

"The Golden Mask trophy is going to live in the same place that my Grammys and every other award that I've ever won lived, and that is at my mother's home," NE-YO said. "My mom has this huge cabinet full of my accomplishments, and we have moved things around and prepared a space for that big, beautiful golden Masked Singer trophy, right next to the Grammys."

Actor John Schneider took second place from within the Donut costume. The Dukes of Hazzard star, 63, went on the show while grieving the death of his wife Alicia.

“For me, The Masked Singer is really the glue that held me together for the last couple of months. It was vitally important,” he told PEOPLE. “It has made it so people were aware of the music, they're also aware of grief being a process. I think that grief is something that needs to be talked about publicly. It doesn't need to be sequestered away and hidden. The more you talk about it, the more power you are giving yourself and the more power, I think, you're taking away from your grief.”
