The Sun's Latest "Masked Singer" Performance May Have Given Her Away

Fans are almost 100 percent sure that they know who sang "Praying" last night.

On Wednesday's episode of The Masked Singer, Group A was back for another round of performances. Although the Giraffe was unmasked, revealing that former Beverly Hills, 90210 star Brian Austin Green had been inside the costume the whole time, the real star of this Masked Singer episode was the Sun, who stunned the judges and fans with her talent for the second time this season.

After her performance of Lizzo's "Cuz I Love You" last week, the Sun did not come to play once again. For round two, the Sun performed Kesha's song, "Praying," and left the judges amazed by her star power.

There are a lot of theories flying around about the Sun's identity. Whoever she is, she has a pretty solid shot at winning the whole thing if she keeps pulling out all the stops for performances like she did this week. Keep reading to see what we know so far and the best guesses we've seen so far.

The first clues were subtle.

The first set of clues didn't include any dead giveaways—but that's how it always goes. We know the Sun is someone who's set a few records, but who became depressed after they quickly shot to stardom. Other clues: A Mickey Mouse head silhouette, a "Gold Member" card, a chihuahua, and a swimming pool.

This week, we found out even more about the Sun.

This week's clues are a bit more revealing. The Sun is someone who loves nature, has been cooking up "tasty treats," and is "burning the ugly rumors out of my life." She's also celebrating every day like it's Halloween and reclaiming her childhood. There's also a Magic 8 Ball involved.

A popular theory that the Sun is LeAnn Rimes is still holding strong.

The biggest theory out there is that the Sun is LeAnn Rimes, and it's easy to see why: The Sun sounds so much like her. (There's even a video of her online singing the Lizzo song the Sun performed last week.) Rimes was also a child star, and she's definitely a fan of nature and the outdoors—and back in 1997, she performed in her own concert special on Disney Channel, which would explain the Mickey Mouse clue.

Some people think it's a Disney Channel star.

Speaking of the Mickey clue, fans on Reddit are convinced that the Sun could be a child star who got their start on Disney Channel. The names being thrown around include Demi Lovato, Hilary Duff, and Christy Carlson Romano.

There's an off-the-wall theory that the Sun is Kylie Jenner.

A video of Kylie Jenner singing "Rise and Shine" to her daughter Stormi went viral last year, so it kind of makes sense that some people are thinking that it all ties back to her. But at this point, have we even heard her sing enough to be able to tell if this is her voice?

Fans on Twitter think it could be Scarlett Johansson.

Another theory on Twitter that's making the rounds: the Sun is Scarlett Johansson, based on her voice alone. It would definitely be surprising if the Black Widow star were competing on the show, but stranger things have happened on The Masked Singer.

All signs definitely seem to be pointing to Rimes right now, and hopefully, her next performance will really seal it. It could be awhile before we see the Sun take off the mask, however, because whoever's hiding in there is incredibly talented.
