CNN — The moves and music have come to an end on the first season of "The Masked Dancer."
Gymnast Gabby Douglas was named the winner after being revealed as Cotton Candy, dancing to "This Is Me," by Kesha, on Wednesday's finale.
The Olympic gold medalist took home the trophy after beating runner-up Sloth, who turned out to be "Dancing with the Stars" pro Maksim Chmerkovskiy, and Tulip, who was revealed to be Mackenzie Ziegler from "Dance Moms."
The panelists had suggested that Cotton Candy was some kind of athlete, with Paula Abdul correctly guessing it was Douglas. Ashley Tisdale incorrectly guessed Simone Biles, while Brian Austin Green picked Tara Lapinski and Ken Jeong guessed Michelle Kwan.
Both Abdul and Green correctly guessed Sloth, while Jeong thought he was Channing Tatum.
For third place Tulip, Tisdale correctly guessed Ziegler.
Abdul correctly identified the most dancers over the season with four.
Besides Cotton Candy, Sloth and Tulip, this season's costumes included Moth, Zebra, Exotic Bird, Cricket, Disco Ball, Hammerhead and Ice Cube.
