The New Year's Eve special of

The Masked Singer

on RTL 4 has attracted 2.4 million viewers.

This made it the most watched program at 8.30 pm on New Year's Eve.

Youp van 't Hek managed to attract 2.7 million viewers with his New Year's Eve conference on NPO 1 from 10.30 pm and thus won the battle in the late evening.

This is evident from figures from Stichting KijkOnderzoek.

The Masked Singer

was the big hit on RTL 4 this year and returned on New Year's Eve with a one-off special.

With that, the program managed to attract more viewers on prime-time than Matthijs van Nieuwkerk's

Matthijs Gaat Door

on NPO 1 and Jochem Myjers

Adem In, Adem Uit

on SBS 6, which 1.05 million and 753,000 viewers watched.

In the one-off special of

The Masked Singer

, five candidates took part, all wearing costumes related to New Year's Eve.

In the end, Frans Bauer, Caroline Tensen, John van de Heuvel, Richard Groenendijk and Edsilia Rombley, who won the broadcast, turned out to be in the suits.
