'The Masked Singer' Season 3 returned on Wednesday night for the Group A Playoffs, and this week it was the Llama who got the boot, and fans were shocked to see the celebrity under the mask. 

The fan-favorite reality TV series was back with its regular time slot after it kicked off on Sunday night post the Super Bowl LIV. Last week the judges were joined by Jamie Foxx as the guest judge, and this week Robin Thicke, Jenny McCarthy, Ken Jeong and Nicole Scherzinger were joined by 'American Pie' star Jason Biggs as the guest judge. 

Last week the Robot was eliminated only to reveal that it was none other than Grammy award-winning rapper Lil Wayne. This week the remaining five masked celebrities were back vying to be one amongst the final three singers from Group A. The White Tiger, Llama, Kangaroo, Miss Monster and Turtle gave it their best, but sadly one had to go.



 

The Llama was the first to perform. He sang his rendition of Tom Jones' 'It’s Not Unusual', but sadly that wasn't enough to get him through the playoffs. Prior to his performance, in a new set of clues, the Llama shared, "LLama-ste  (Namaste) to all my woolly fans in the land." We also see the Llama playing the accordion. 

In his pre-taped clue package, the Llama revealed, "My strategy is to approach this competition the same way I approached my career. For a while, I was spinning my wheels, but then I started to envision my success, and to think on my feet."

After his performance, when the judges asked him what he's been voted "most likely" to achieve in the "Masked Singer Class of 2020", he shares, "I was voted most likely to be near firing Cannons." 

After all five masked singers were done performing, the audience and judges voted for their favorite singer, and the masked celebrity with the least number of votes was eliminated. Sadly tonight, that masked celebrity was the Llama. The judges' final guesses were Adam Carolla, Johnny Knoxville, Kelsey Grammer, Woody Harrelson and Joel McHale. 

Unmasked, the Llama revealed that he was none other than famed comedian and 'Price is Right' host, Drew Carey. Explaining his clues, Drew shared, "The package didn't say I'm FROM Seattle. I'm in Seattle all the time because I own a part of the Seattle Sounders." 

Taking to Twitter post the reveal, fans shared that they had no idea that it was Drew Carey under the Llama's mask. "What?!? Drew Carey. Holy Llama that is a TALL mask head. Never would’ve guessed it," a fan shared.



 

"Omg how did I not know @DrewFromTV was the llama on @MaskedSingerFOX I watch him every morning on @PriceIsRight #TheMaskedSinger," a fan wrote. Adding to that another said, "Holy tits... i did not expect the llama to be who he was on #TheMaskedSinger you fu*king got us all dude."

"Holy sh*t! Drew Carey was the Llama!! Great show!! #TheMaskedSinger," a fan said.

While another wrote, "I thought the llama was @jackblack! You def fooled me, Drew Carey! #TheMaskedSinger."

"Was not expecting that at all! Thank you @DrewFromTV for all the joy you bring to everyone every day dressed as a llama or otherwise. You killed it! #TheMaskedSinger," shared a fan.
