‘The Masked Singer’: Reality-TV Star Unmasked on ‘Wizard of Oz’ Night

There was no place like The Masked Singer on Wednesday, March 13, as the quirky singing contest celebrated “Wizard of Oz” night.

Cleocatra, The Beets, Gumball and Afghan Hound took turns on the mic, each of them facing the prospect of going home early.

The resplendent canine performed “The Lion Sleeps” by the Tokens, the upright feline tackled “Stormy Weather” by Etta James, the sugar-ball dispenser performed a medley of “If I Only Had A Heart” by Jack Haley and “Heartbeat Song” by Kelly Clarkson, and those constantly-smiling roots performed Michael Buble’s “Home.”

The dog and the candy were at the bottom of the list, and they entered a battle to “Ding Dong The Witch Is Dead.” The winner, survives. The loser, bye-bye.

“Wizard of Oz” night wasn’t magical for Afghan Hound, who, after the performances, found herself in the dog house.

The mask came off, revealing reality-TV star, actor, influencer and former beauty queen Savannah Chrisley of Chrisley Knows Best.

The stint behind the helmet was, no doubt, a welcome distraction for Chrisley, whose parents were jailed last year after being convicted of federal bank fraud and tax evasion in June 2022.

“Honestly, my life over the past year has changed drastically,” she explained when her identify was revealed and host Nick Cannon asked why she decided to participate in this 11th season. “Lost both my parents to the federal system. And now I have custody of my 15-year-old brother and 10-year-old sister,” a comment that drew concerned faces from judges Robin Thicke, Jenny McCarthy-Wahlberg, Ken Jeong and newbie Rita Ora.

“So, if I can teach them anything it’s, take every opportunity that comes your way and don’t back down.”

There were lessons learned for Chrisley, too. “I know singing is not for me. I don’t know what a note is, nor do I know what rhythm is,” she continued. “But, it was a good experience.”

Another reason for competing in this 2024 season is “because I know my parents can watch it. And that was a big thing for me.”

Chrisley as Afghan Hound follows the exit of Kevin Hart (as Book) on last week’s season premiere of The Masked Singer.
