Of the three finalists, only one is a woman: the sun. She made it to the last three after she left the studio audience and the four judges (Ken Jeong, Jenny McCarthy, Nicole Scherzinger and Robin Thicke) with her cover of “When the Party’s Over” by Billie Eilish at the semi-finals. That was no surprise given how well she had done in her previous performances. She has tackled different genres and has always impressed us with both her singing and dancing skills.

We are absolutely certain that the sun is a country music superstar LeAnn Rimes. She recorded the Lizzo song “Cuz I Love You” and sounds just like the sun in the first episode when she sang this tune. In addition, consider how well LeAnn’s life story fits with the clues we’ve been given about the sun.

The Sun admits that she has been very down at times; Over the years, Rimes has been candid about her battles with depression and like the sun comes from a broken family.

In 1997, LeAnn made Grammy history at the age of 15 when she became the youngest winner of Best New Artist. She also took home the award for Best Female Country Vocal Performance for ‘Blue’ that year. Over the years, LeAnn has been nominated a further five times for music’s highest honor. As a group, the contestants of this season’s “The Masked Singer” have earned 46 Grammy nominations.

In one of the clues videos we saw a pair of mouse ears, a reference to Disney. LeAnn filmed her first TV special at Disney World in 1997. And she was part of the 5th anniversary special for Disneyland in 2005. Her version of the park’s golden anniversary song, “Remember When,” was played every day for a year. the fireworks.

The sun said it “manages to shine like a torch even in the freezing winter.” Rimes performed “Light The Fire Within” at the opening ceremony of the 2002 Winter Olympics in Salt Lake City. And we see some balloons; over the years she has sung at various concerts that have been part of hot air balloon festivals.

We saw the sun shining on some flowers and a watering can; in 2016, a hybrid tea rose was named after Rimes. Besides the watering can, many of the other elements are also blue in honor of LeAnn’s first big hit.

We also saw a picture of a butterfly. LeAnn wore one such tattoo on her left wrist in 2012 in support of an anti-bullying initiative, The Butterfly Project. Around that time, she was the subject of many online attacks because of her relationship with Eddie Cibrian, whom she met when they were both married. The Sun says she has been burned once too many times by gossip.

The image of the candy canes ties in with LeAnn’s life in two ways: She recorded the song “Hard Candy Christmas” for her 2014 holiday album and used them as a way to decorate the house when she first had stepsons.
