Omarion was revealed as Yeti on "The Masked Singer" talent show on Wednesday night. In the post-reveal interview, he said he was unable to perform his signature "chest pop" because of his heavy Yeti costume, which weighed 60 lbs.

Omarion spoke to Billboard after the show about his experience.

"It was a challenge. A lot of people don't know that that suit was about 60 extra pounds, so it was a challenge moving. And also, just to keep the character continuity, I didn't want to give myself away by doing too much movement or some of my signature movements, which I couldn't even do because the suit was so big. I couldn't do my signature chest pop because it was the Yeti chest! It was a challenge, but it was fun nonetheless."

The 36-year-old R&B star was one of two contestants voted off the TV talent show, hosted by Nick Cannon (right). New Kids on the Block singer Donnie Wahlberg was the other unmasked celebrity.

Omarion was thrilled to make history as the first singer to perform on the show in roller skates. He said the show made him feel validated as a performer.

"As long as I've had an audience, only through mediums like The Masked Singer do you actually get the opportunity to do things that can further your relationship with performing, and I felt like The Masked Singer was going to do that - and it did just that. Being in that suit and hearing the compliments from the judges and them not seeing me, that was dope."

Bobby Brown became emotional following his surprise performance on "The Masked Singer" on Wednesday night.

Brown tells PEOPLE that he was thinking about all the loss he suffered in his personal life while performing "Ain't No Sunshine" by Bill Withers.

As the crowd chanted "Take it off!" Bobby was revealed to be the Crab.
 

"The king of R&B! My brother. The legend is in the building!" said host Nick Cannon.

"I did have so much fun, and it wasn't about a competition to me," Brown, 52, told PEOPLE. "It was about strictly having fun. Being able to perform as the Crab really, really, really made me feel good."

When asked why he wanted to come on the show, he said "I'm a big fan of the show. Me and my kids, we sit in front of the television and we watch it. We've been watching it for years. I got a kick out of seeing all of the stars unveiled, the stars' performances, and I just thought it would be a great idea for me to do it, to see the looks on my kids face when I'm unveiled."

"I was thinking about a lot of things. Mainly all the loss of my life. That's really touching to me, that's close to my heart. But also, just thinking about my kids, and how much I appreciate them, how much I love them, and being able to sing something to them that is not one of their father's songs. It was therapeutic for me to sing that song and bring it across to the people, and people to get where I'm coming from as a human being. For my kids to hear it, and sit there and say, 'That's you, Daddy. That's you Daddy. I know that's you, Daddy,' it's been a lot of fun."

Brown suffered the tragic loss of his son Bobby Brown Jr., daughter Bobbi Kristina and ex-wife Whitney Houston.

The R&B icon is also father to sons Landon, 35, and Cassius, 11, and daughters La'Princia, 31, Bodhi, 5, and 4-year-old Hendrix.
