The Masked Singer season 4 is underway, and the 4 remaining contestants from “Group A” are taking the stage for a second performance on Wednesday, October 7. One of those contestants is the Sun.
Here’s what we know about the Sun after their first performance on The Masked Singer, and which celebrities might be hiding behind the mask.
BEWARE OF EPISODE 3 SPOILERS BELOW.
‘The Masked Singer’ the Sun Clues So Far
Ahead of the Season 4 premiere, the Sun’s first clue for curious fans was, “If you’re trying to figure out who I am, here’s a hint: This sun knows how to shine like a torch even during the freezing winter.”
In the Sun’s first animated clue package of the season, there were a number of significant-seeming visual clues. Some of them included: a Mickey Mouse silhouette, a jaguar sitting by a pool, and a sign reading “Gold Member.”
The Sun revealed that she went through “a deep depression” in the past, and also that she “has set quite a few records.”
FOX teases that “The Season Four celebrity contestants combined have sold more than 281 million records worldwide, appeared in more than 5,120 episodes of television and 204 films, appeared in five Super Bowls, have four stars on the Hollywood Walk of Fame and one of Time magazine’s 100 Most Influential People.” Which accomplishments belong to the celebrity behind the Sun mask?
For the Sun’s episode 3 clue package, she said she loves dressing up like the Sun because “It’s like every day is Halloween,” adding “I really do feel like a kid again.” She opened up saying, “I missed out on a lot of my childhood growing up in a fractured home.” She also said she likes to get her feet dirty.
Some visual clues stood out during the video, including a witch’s pot, burning pieces of paper, the woods, candy cane, and an hourglass. “Into the Woods,” “Material Girls,” and “Ugly Rumours” were all referenced in the package.
The Sun’s drone clue was a magic 8 ball. She teased the judges, saying, “Will this magic 8 ball help you figure out my identity? Outlook not so hot.” That clue did little to help the judges make their guesses, though they tried to connect the dots with the magic theme that has been present.
Top Guesses for Sun on ‘The Masked Singer’
After the Sun’s premiere night performance, the leading guess for the Sun’s celebrity identity is LeAnn Rimes. The panel guessed she might be Katharine McPhee, Demi Lovato, Miley Cyrus, or even Madonna.
The judges were floored once again by the Sun’s vocals; this time, she sang “Praying” by Kesha. Jenny McCarthy guessed Mandy Moore or Demi Lovato and Robin Thicke guessed Katharine McPhee. Nicole Scherzinger guessed Carrie Underwood because the Sun walked underneath a piece of wood during the animated clue package. Ken Jeong picked up on the “Material Girls” clue, suggesting he wasn’t off in guessing Madonna during the season 4 premiere.
New episodes of The Masked Singer season 4 air on Wednesday nights at 8/7c on FOX.
