Many fans think that the Firefly is really Teyana Taylor, a singer, songwriting, dancer, actress, and model.
In her first episode, she sang “Ain’t Nobody” by Chaka Khan. In her second appearance, she sang Michael Jackson’s “P.Y.T. (Pretty Young Thing).” Her third song, Charlie Puth’s “Attention,” earned her a slot in the season 7 finale.
Gold Derby put several clues together to help support this fan theory. During her very first appearance n the show, Firefly told the panel “I’ve been performing all my life, and it feels amazing every time I step on stage.”

Teyana release her first album “From A Planet Called Harlem” before she was even 20 years old. Before that, she sang her hit single “Google Me” on “It’s Showtime at the Apollo.” One of the clues was a souvenir program from the Harlem theater.
In the first episode, fans were shown a Statue of Liberty, which could be a reference to her hometown of New York City.
Teyana Taylor Has A Lot Of Famous Friends!

Another clue was a framed photo of Tyler Perry. Teyana appeared in 2011’s “Madea’s Big Happy Family,” the fifth film in Perry’s film series. She also has a photo of Kanye West. Teyana danced in the music video for Ye’s “Fade.” Believe it or not, Fade2Fit is also the name of her online workout program. Another photo of Pharrell Williams is also a major clue. Firefly told the panel that “Pharrell is one of the major keys of my career.” Teyana signed with Pharrell’s Star Trak Entertainment when she was a teenager.

The very first glimpse fans had of Firefly was in a teaser video that “The Masked Singer” posted to YouTube. In the video, the Firefly can be seen wearing a tiara and asks, “Want to know who I am? Maybe you’d see me sparkle in something like this.” The tiara might be a nod to her first TV appearance as the birthday girl in one episode of MTV’s “My Super Sweet 16.” It could also be a reference to her role in “Coming 2 America.”
Firefly is really good! When she first sang, I thought it was Monica. That quickly changed. You can definitely tell that it is Teyana Taylor. #TheMaskedSinger

So is it possible that Teyana Taylor is really the singer (and dancer!) behind the Firefly? The clues certainly seem to point in that direction, but fans won’t know for sure until the Firefly is unmasked on “The Masked Singer” season 7 finale, which airs tonight at 8 PM EST.
