Who Is the Sun on ‘The Masked Singer’? Here Are Some Theories.

On the premiere of Fox’s The Masked Singer, fans of the show (or new viewers looking for some light in the 2020 darkness), met Group A of the costumed contestants. First up, singing Lizzo’s “Cuz I Love You,” was The Sun, a gold-masked performer who completely dominated the soulful notes and emotional depth of this ballad.

Because this was the first performance of the season, judges Ken Jeong, Jenny McCarthy Walberg, Nicole Scherzinger, and Robin Thicke were all blown away by this power right off the bat. The singer, wearing a gold dress similar to Belle’s gold ballgown in Beauty and the Beast, did not tiptoe through the song like a Disney princess created by the patriarchy. She absolutely belted it. “When I put on this mask, I thought it was a reflection of who I am personally, and I liked it,” The Sun said, her voice disguised by voice-changing software.

So, who is this optimistic, gold-adorned powerhouse? She’s definitely kept fans guessing this whole season. Tonight, we’ll find out who’s behind every remaining mask, including Mushroom and Pink Croc.

Throughout this season, there have been several fan guesses about the major star behind the mask. During the Group A finals, the extra clues included “take the wheel,” which certainly hints at Carrie Underwood.

But! There was also someone in the Group A clue package who was supposed to be The Sun’s partner. He talked about going on road trips during the pandemic and said she “really misses entertaining people.” Other clues referenced Baltimore and Alaska. LeAnn Rimes’s husband, Eddie Cibrian, plays a character in the TV drama Northern Lights who’s from Baltimore but moves to Alaska when he meets Rimes’s character. Seems pretty on the money to me…and fans on YouTube and Twitter are certain this contestant is Rimes.

Before we find out once and for all, here are all the major guesses about the character this season.

Leann Rimes

The singer revealed on week one was Busta Rhymes. Could this be another R[i]mes?

Carrie Underwood

After The Sun yet again showed off an impressive vocal range with Kesha’s 2017 song “Praying” on October 7, the judges came back with some interesting theories. In this week’s set of clues, Scherzinger caught that the character “was walking under a wood,” and she put it together: “Carrie Underwood. And Carrie Underwood can sang and she’s got pipes like that as well.”

Demi Lovato

Based on the Mickey Mouse ears in the clue package, McCarthy thought The Sun might be former Disney star Lovato. She also caught onto the clue that the artist “went through a really hard time,” and then “transformed,” which she thought might have something to do with Lovato’s journey with mental illness. Jeong said “that’s a great guess, but completely wrong.”

People definitely support this theory, however.

Mandy Moore

McCarthy has another theory that might check out: Mandy Moore, who was in the movie Tangled, a musical with lots of images having to do with light and magic. Robin Thicke also agreed that Moore’s personality is very “sunshine.” McCarthy pointed out that Moore has a single called “Candy,” and the clue package included a candy cane.

Madonna

Jeong’s guess, based on the clue “ray of light,” was Madonna, who had a 1998 single of the same name. The clue package also referenced “Frozen,” the name of another Madonna song. Jeong bragged about running into Madonna “like, almost every other day” at hot yoga in Sherman Oaks, Los Angeles. “You have never experienced life unless you have done a downward dog with Madonna,” he said. McCarthy questioned whether “Madonna could sing like that,” but Jeong stuck to his guess.

Idina Menzel or Kristen Bell

That clue with the word “frozen” really had Scherzinger hooked. She thought The Sun could be either one of the animated film franchise’s leading ladies, Indina Menzel or Kristen Bell.

Katharine McPhee

Scherzinger said she saw the jaguar clue and thought it could be a reference to “cat,” or Broadway signer Katharine McPhee. The clue package also said “Gold Member”: Scherzinger reasoned that McPhee’s married to Canadian musician David Foster, who has “oodles and oodles of gold records.”

On October 7, Thicke said he was going to “double down” on this theory. “If she was on American Idol, she could have sang Rumours. She could have sang “Ray of Light,” she could have sang “Landslide.” And her personality traits—the way she’s responding to our jokes, I’ve seen her on American Idol, and I’m seeing a lot of similarities in the body language.”

Scherzinger added that this second clue package included a lot of musical references to Into the Woods and The Wiz, and McPhee starred in Waitress on Broadway. Hmm!

Christina Aguilera

Twitter’s aflutter with guesses about this pop icon.

One thing we know is this singer has some serious pipes under those sunbeams. Who else is with me on Team Demi?
