Natalie, 47, was finally revealed in the final, after the judges failed to correctly guess who she was behind the mask.

Fans back home were stunned when they saw the Australian star underneath the outfit – and shortly after she was revealed, left with flashbacks.

Viewers of the guessing game show recall the time Natalie appeared on The X Factor more than a decade ago.

The former Neighborhood star replaced then-pregnant judge Dannii Minogue for her audition at Birmingham’s NEC in 2010.

Former best friends Abbey and Lisa – known to audiences as AbLisa – made history on the show when they stopped singing to fight.

The audition quickly ended when Abbey punched her co-star in the face, before the two jumped in and yelled at each other.

It all stemmed from Natalie delivering her criticism of their audition, where she told them, “Singing isn’t about being great girls.”

“Who are you, may I ask?” Lisa sashayedly clapped her hands in response, before Abbey turned around in astonishment, horrified that her friend had offended Natalie.

Abbey stood gaping before punching her friend in the face and then plunging into action in a moment that went down in television history.

Fans of The Masked Singer took to Twitter to recall the hilarious scenes, saying they were “always reminded” of it every time they saw Natalie.

“Every time I see Natalie Imbruglia, it reminds me of when she was a guest judge on The X Factor and a girl in the lousy duo after not being able to say ‘sorry, but who are you,'” ?’ and her friend punched her in the face,” one viewer wrote.

The second part is highlighted: “Think, if the girl from the X Factor had waited 12 years before asking Panda/Natalie Imbruglia ‘who are you?’ She figured she wouldn’t get elbowed in the face.”

“That’s the woman AbLisa from the X Factor doesn’t know,” joked a third.

Fans suspected it was Natalie behind the mask after it was revealed, she will appear on the Graham Norton Show next week.

Speaking after her win, the one-time Neighborhood star said: “I would love to be Panda. When I put on this outfit, I will become Panda.

“I’ve been speaking with an American accent the whole time, so if it sounds strange to me, it’s because I’ve messed up.

“I just had a lot of fun. I made friends with a traffic cone and a mushroom. This is a great show and I’m so happy to be a part of it.”
