The Masked Singer airs its Season 8 finale this week on Fox. The last episode will see only two competitors return and battle for the big prize. However, one thing that the show should focus on in this finale is that one of these finalists made history with the U.S. version of the show.

Here is a look at what made the finalists in Season 8 so special and what they did that no one else before them could accomplish.

The Lambs will head into The Masked Singer finale to battle with Harp for the big prize. This should be a great competition, as the early guesses for who is under the costume mean that these are some powerhouse singers battling for the prize. However, when it comes to the Lambs, they have done something no other performer has ever accomplished in the reality series.

The Lambs are the first group ever to make it to the finale of The Masked Singer. In the first seven seasons, the finale was always solo singers battling for the prize. Even with some legendary and iconic groups in the past, none have ever made it to the finals. If the Lambs win it all, they will be the first group ever to win The Masked Singer.

Last season, The Voice had its first group make the finals and win it all with Girl Named Tom. The Masked Singer could join that reality show with its first group champions as well. However, it will be an uphill battle, as Harp remains the favorite with Amber Riley rumored to be under the mask.

There is one other history-making moment this year on The Masked Singer. With Lambs battling Harp, this is the first time in show history that the finale had only female acts. Most of the time, there are three acts in the finale. However, there are only two acts this season, and both are female talents.

Who are Lambs on The Masked Singer?

The biggest guess for who Lambs is on The Masked Singer finale is Wilson Phillips. The clues about them being friends from childhood to their home in Los Angeles to breaking up and getting back together all lead to the award-winning trio.

Wilson Phillips is a trio that formed in Los Angeles in 1989. They were all music royalty. Chynna Phillips is the daughter of John and Michelle Phillips of The Mamas & The Papas. Carnie and Wendy Wilson are Beach Boys’ founder Brian Wilson’s daughters. The families grew up as friends, and the group ended up very successful.

Their debut album sold over 10 million copies with three number-one hits. They won the Billboard Music Awards for Hot 100 Single of the Year for “Hold On” and picked up five Grammy nominations. They broke up in 1993 and then reunited first in 2004 and then in 2010.

The Masked SingerĀ airs its finale Wednesday night, Nov. 30, at 8/7c on FOX.
