Who could be the celebrity in this golden costume? Believe it or not, the internet has already come up with several genius theories. Here are Masked Singer fans' theories about who's under this dazzling mask:
Who Is Sun on The Masked Singer?
Here are the hints we've gathered about Sun so far:
Sun is wearing a head-to-toe gold look, with an intricate golden dress and a golden sun-shaped mask that's embellished with rhinestones.
Sun "has set quite a few records."
The first official clue for Sun is that they "know how to shine like a torch even during the freezing winter."
Sun has had "some extreme seasons" in their life.
Sun "felt like the center of the universe" when they first "sprung into existence," but the pressures of stardom led them to become "burned out" and "fall into a deep depression."
Sun was "frozen," but was able to transform "within the darkness of a quiet place."
Visual clues in Sun's first clue package include a "Gold Member" card, a chihuahua, a Mickey Mouse head silhouette, a jaguar, and a swimming pool that has a "Shallow Area" with 2 ft and 7 ft markers.
Got all of that? Now onto the internet's best theories ...
Masked Singer fans are already convinced that Sun is none other than country singer-songwriter LeAnn Rimes — and they've gathered all the evidence to prove it! Besides swearing they recognize her voice from her performance (and even sleuthing to find a video of LeAnn performing the exact same song back in 2019!), viewers are pointing to the fact that LeAnn performed at the opening ceremony of the 2002 Winter Olympics in Salt Lake City, Utah, where she sang a song titled "Light the Fire Within." According to fans, this connects perfectly with the clue about Sun knowing "how to shine like a torch even during the freezing winter."
As for the rest of the clues, LeAnn has indeed "set quite a few records" as a legendary artist, most notably becoming the youngest person to win a Grammy at 14 years old for her song "Blue," which was certified gold in 1998 (hence the "Gold Member" card clue!). Having risen to stardom at such a young age, the singer has also been open about struggling with depression and anxiety since her young teens, which certainly lines up with Sun's clue about the pressures of stardom leading to a "deep depression."
And if you're still not convinced, get this: LeAnn's beloved family dog was a chihuahua mix, and she's also written a children's book titled Jag, which follows the story of a young jaguar. As for her connection to the Mickey Mouse clue, the singer has performed for Disney in the past — including a Disney Channel TV special in 1997 and a special performance for Disneyland's 50th Anniversary back in 2005.
Could it be the one and only Xtina under the Sun mask? Some fans definitely think so! After hearing Sun's phenomenal voice, many viewers are convinced that Sun is Christina Aguilera, and their evidence includes the fact that the record-breaking singer has several gold-certified albums (which matches up with the "Gold Member" card clue), and also has a strong connection with Disney, including appearing on Disney's Mickey Mouse Club in 1993. Christina also famously sang "Reflection" on the soundtrack for the Disney movie Mulan — which some fans think Sun slyly mentioned after her performance when she said, "When I put this mask on I felt like it was a reflection of who I am."
Other fans are convinced that the clues point to a different kind of record-breaking celebrity, instead a famous athlete and Olympian like Lindsey Vonn. As an American alpine skier, Lindsey has competed in numerous Winter Olympics, which matches up with the clue about how Sun "knows how to shine like a torch even during the freezing winter." Not to mention, this also fits with the show's clue that this season's contestants include one Olympic Gold medalist (a.k.a. a "Gold Member" card holder). Lindsey has also "set quite a few records" as a world-famous ski racer, including being the first American woman to win the gold medal in downhill at the 2010 Winter Olympics, as well as holding the women's record for the most World Cup victories (a total of 82 wins!).
