Spoiler alert: Details for season 11, episode 13 of “The Masked Singer,” “Final: One Mask Takes It All,” airing May 22 on Fox follow.

“The Masked Singer” winner Vanessa Hudgens admits she doesn’t need to play hide and seek: At least among her friends and fans, they’ve figured out she’s the one in the Goldfish costume.

“Rita [Ora] I guessed it was me from the jump,” Hudgens said. “But she’s also my friend. We saw each other a few days before the first episode!

Hudgens won the “Masked Singer” trophy this season, defeating Scott Porter, who played Gumball. Coincidentally, Hudgens and Porter previously starred together in 2009’s “Bondslam.”

Despite their history, Hudgens said the production kept her completely in the dark about who her competitors were. “I was invested every step of the way,” he said. “I’ve tried really hard to change the way they do things because I think it’s more fun if the contestants know who the other contestants are! They cover you up. But I’ll do my act and then sit backstage in my costume, completely covered up, and watch other people perform. Kevin Hart said in his Starting with the whole situation, I was cracking up. It’s just a wild ride. You never know what’s going to happen ‘Masked Singer’.

Hudgens noted that the show’s production team takes its secrecy very seriously. “I don’t see a single competitor,” he said. “If I was in the studio a lot, I had a face mask on, a hoodie and gloves, so my hands weren’t even showing. It was very hidden. But when it comes to singing and acting, it’s something I love and it’s honest, and it’s my I wanted to give it my all – even if it was completely hidden behind a mask.

So, what inspired Hudgens to film “The Masked Singer” last fall? “It’s an interesting time in our industry,” he said. “We were on strike and figuring out where to make the next move. My fans have been asking me for a long time to support me and love it when I sing. This is the perfect opportunity to give it to them – and see who the real fans are.

Package Voiceover: “I loved swimming into new territories as the golden girl on this stage. As a little girl, I was never very good at expressing myself. It’s not really what I grew up with. But lately I’ve been on a journey of self-discovery. Being here, I’ve been able to express myself more freely. I’m not connected to Hollywood. Coming from a working-class family, there’s no reason I’ve done it, but I’m a source of hard work and dedication, and I can’t wait to have kids when that time comes. ‘Mom go look!’ I know I’m up against some steep competition, but it would be the ultimate pat on the back. It makes me very emotional as an actor first. It’s my job to give everyone a musical moment Through and through and the answer made me want it to never end.

I’m so grateful and proud to be on this stage.

Package Voiceover: “Am I in the finals? What? This experience is unreal. It’s great to show what I’m capable of in music. But I fought for it. Surviving two Smackdowns and two battle royals? In my life, I had to struggle to see. Imagine trying something thousands of times and only a few succeeding at it. Still, in Hollywood, that’s considered a success. I’ve been on TV non-stop for almost two decades and still being here, I feel like I’ve been able to show who I really am. Tonight, I’m ready for the biggest fight of my life. Against Goldfish! So, I’m going to pour my heart and soul into these last two shows. Win or lose, this trip changed everything. I don’t want to stop doing this on the other side of the show because it makes me so happy. So, thanks for this experience masked singer. I truly felt like a kid in a candy store.
