Group A performers, The Sun, the Snow Owls, and the Popcorn, came back to 'The Masked Singer' stage for one last time. This was the final chance for two of these performers to secure their position in the Super 6 lineup. Also joining the judges' panel was Emmy-nominated actress Niecy Nash who claimed she had "mama ears" and was sure she'd figure out who the celebrities behind the masks were once she hears them.

The first one to perform on the stage was The Sun who also managed to make her way directly to the Super 6, after receiving the most votes from the judges as well as a set of pre-selected super fans watching from home. Popcorn and the Snow Owls went on to perform once again in a smackdown and the latter were eliminated and revealed as Clint Black and Lisa Hartman Black. Coming back to the Sun, she performed to 'Piece of My Heart' by Janis Joplin showing off her astounding vocals and very impressive range. She belted out those high notes like no one's business and her falsetto was a wake-up call for people who think Ariana Grande is the only one who could do it best.

Her clue package had a number of visual clues that included: plastic cows, a postcard featuring Alaska and Mexico, a road trip to Baltimore, a blue windchime. Sun's 'Sol Mate' too featured in the video giving away a clue about her. Seated next to an RV, wearing oversized windshield reflector glasses and a flannel shirt, he said, "the Sun is actually Golden! She's got at least one single that went certified gold!"

The judges went ahead to attempt to put two and two together and figure out who this masked celebrity was. Katherine McPhee, Jewel Kilcher, Joanna Levesque aka Jojo, and Demi Lovato were some of the guesses that came up on the judges' table for the identity of this masked celebrity. However, fans are sure, this is no one but LeAnn Rimes behind the mask. "The sun is 100000% LeAnn rimes #TheMaskedSinger," wrote a fan. "Glad Leann Rimes... I mean the Sun made it #TheMaskedSinger," wrote another after Sun was declared safe. "I think Sun is Leann Rimes. The Alaska and Baltimore reference would be for the movie she did, Northern Lights. #TheMaskedSinger" wrote another.
