From the moment he started singing (in a preview clip), Gargoyle had the audience in the palm of his hands, er, wings. The smooth stylings of the stony singer immediately captured attention on DC Superheroes Night on The Masked Singer, and it had everyone wondering who was under the mask. 

Gargoyle made his debut along with two other new contestants, Squirrel and Wolf. Though he might look like a bat, Gargoyle came out and showed the audience that he's a singer and a competitor.

After a rousing performance, Gargoyle lost in the Battle Royale to Squirrel, but he lived to sing another day after the panelists utilized the Ding Dong Keep It On save feature. 

Gargoyle competed with Mantis and Medusa in the Battle of the Saved to determine which contestant would advance to the semifinals. Ultimately, Gargoyle lost to Medusa and was unmaked. 

So who is under the mask? Here's who is Gargoyle on The Masked Singer.

Who is Gargoyle on The Masked Singer US? Clues

Here are Gargoyle's clues from DC Superheroes Night:

Celebrity Clue (delivered by Helen Mirren and Zachary Levi): "Record maker." Gargoyle said, "I’m keen on making waves in the field. But being a part of history is the best bonus I could ask for."

Voiceover clue: "From the time I was 6, I pretty much knew I wanted to be a superhero. But while my peers all seemed to fly, I was stuck on the sidelines. Until my dad gave me a piece of advice. Never let anyone tell you, you can’t do something. He made me believe I could do anything. And it became my superpower. So, when the call finally came for a hero, I put my cape on, and shocked millions with how hard I slay. I went from the guy they passed on, to the guy they passed to. And now when the lights are blinded and the game is on the line, I always answer the call."

Here are the clues from the Battle of the Saved:

Clue: Pregame. "Whether I'm listening to my own track or one of the greats, music always gets me in the zone."

Voiceover: "I thought I was down and out. I thought I was going home. Then they rang the bell and kept me alive. I’m grateful they’re giving me another shot. I was super nervous the last time, because I’d never been on a stage like this. Even though I’m used to performing for thousands of people in massive venues, here I’ve got on this mask and I’m wearing four layers. It still feels like everyone is looking right at me. It’s tough, but I’ve got more experience as an underdog than anyone else. I’ve been in squads that always had to prove that they deserve to be in the national spotlight. So, I’m going to use that to my advantage. I’m going to have to tap into my inner slayer and snatch the performance."
