Costumes for the Masked Singer don’t come cheap, and one lucky contestant’s costumes aren’t irreparably damaged after a high-kick fail that leads to a really bad fall…all captured on camera.
We got this shot of an armadillo going down during the filming of her televised routine—the celebrity got pretty wild with her choreography and flexibility, trying some kind of kick-ass maneuvering… but it didn’t go well.
