After the three performed, it was time for the first elimination of the season. With the three celebs in a semi-circle around host Nick Cannon, he revealed that Gnome was the season’s first unmasking.
The cute creature was revealed to be none other than 97-year-old icon Dick Van Dyke, the star of The Dick Van Dyke Show and Mary Poppins.
The Masked Singer panel was stunned to see the legendary actor, especially panelist Nicole Scherzinger, who burst into tears.
“The world loves you so much,” Nicole told Dick. “It’s an honor to have you on this show. I can’t believe you’re here.”
With the Gnome gone, Mustang and Medusa were left to compete in the Battle Royale. Both singers put their unique spin on Rihanna‘s “Diamonds,” with Medusa ultimately prevailing.
Mustang was unmasked as country music singer Sara Evans. As for her clue about “almost” dying multiple times, Sara was hit by a car when she was 8 years old, which she detailed in her 2020 memoir Born to Fly.
“My mom told me that when the car struck me, I landed 80 feet off the road,” she wrote. “When they found me, I was curled up in a ball with my left leg mangled and twisted and almost severed in two. They all thought I was dead.”
