The Masked Singer: Ana Gasteyer turns out to be Tree as Jenny McCarthy guesses correctly

Ana Gasteyer revealed herself to be the voice behind the Tree on Tuesday’s episode of The Masked Singer, surprising all of the judges but one.

Robin Thicke, 42, and Nicole Scherzinger, 41, had been sure the Tree was comedian Amy Sedaris, going off clues that referenced comedy, Broadway and Christmas movies.

Ken Jeong, 50, voted for ex-Cheers actress Bebe Neuwirth, who’d been in the musical Chicago and had performed on a Christmas album, after hearing a reference to the word ‘cheers.’

Guest judge T-Pain, 34, who won the first season of the Fox show, went with Mariah Carey, but that was mostly ‘because I want to see Nick panic,’ he told show host Nick Cannon, 39.

Nick was famously married to Mariah from 2008 to 2016, and they have two children.

But something still felt off for Jenny McCarthy, 47, who didn’t like any of the guesses.

‘I’m not feeling Amy Sedaris,’ she admitted. ‘I’m just getting comedy week after week, and when I saw the Broadway clues, it brought me more East Coast, so I just stuck with [Saturday Night Live].’

‘I need one person,’ Nick insisted as Jenny ran through the names of former SNL cast members, among them Cheri Oteri and Molly Shannon.

‘Okay, fine, fine,’ Jenny replied. ‘I’m gonna go with Ana Gasteyer.’

Ana, a 52-year-old actress and comedian, was a featured player on Saturday Night Live for 16 years, and recently had recurring roles on TV series such as Schooled and The Goldbergs.

When she took her Tree mask off and Jenny saw that her gut instinct had been right, the judge jumped up and down screaming for joy.

She was the only person to pick Ana as one of the final six, all of whom were competing for a spot in Wednesday’s show semifinals, and hoping to win the coveted Golden Mask.

Hilariously, Ana had actually starred with Ken in the 2017 TV movie A Christmas Story Live!, and he was abashed not to have recognized her.

‘Here’s the deal,’ he started to explain, flabbergasted. ‘I did A Christmas Story with Ana…’

‘Live, on FOX,’ Ana pointed out.

‘I forgot I was in it,’ Ken confessed.

‘It wasn’t that long ago, Ken!’ Ana chided him. ‘And I sang a major number, and I believe… I don’t mean to embarrass you, but you did at one point fall to your knees and say, ”Oh my God, I can’t believe you can sing”.’

‘Ana is just a musical and comedy genius,’ Ken said apologetically, as Jenny affirmed, ‘It’s true: We all idolize you in comedy.’

‘Too bad that didn’t help Ken guess,’ cracked Robin. ‘It turns out the closer you are to Ken, the less he knows about you.’

As the Tree, Ana impressed the judges on Tuesday’s show with her cover of Lady Gaga’s The Edge Of Glory, although she confessed to being a little overwhelmed by the competition.

She also allowed that it could ‘get a little lonely under this mask,’ as two of the show’s guards stroked a third guard’s blonde hair in front of her.

‘I miss the collaboration,’ she opined. ‘I miss my friends. I know my loved ones are here in spirit, and I need their cheers more than ever.’

After Ana’s reveal, it was explained that a witch’s hat included in her past clues was a reference to her role as Elphaba in the musical Wicked, while a soup reference nodded to her first TV appearance as one of the Soup Nazi’s customers on Seinfeld.

The Tree’s voice was by far the most challenging one for the judges to identify, with early guesses even including TV cook Rachael Ray.

The judges felt far more certain that they were getting close to identifying contestants such as the Fox, who went first on Tuesday with his scorching cover of Jamie Foxx’s 2008 hit Blame It.

In his video package, the Fox was shown reading a guide to break-ups, and sporting a gold nose ring shaped like a steering wheel, while several photos of different dogs were shown.

‘We need to talk, and it’s kind of a big deal,’ the Fox noted. ‘Listen, it’s not you, it’s me. I want to get away. I want to fly away, Because I’m finally being accepted for who I really am.’

‘I’ve learned I don’t need to put on my superhero disguise anymore,’ he observed. ‘Through this mask, I feel unchained.’

The Fox had earlier said he’d spent 30 years in show business, and also told the judges he had spent ‘one of the best weekends of his life’ with one of them.

Guesses included Wayne Brady, Lenny Kravitz or Jamie Foxx, all of which seemed reasonable.

Leopard came onstage next, dressed in Elizabethan garb for his cover of Fun’s We Are Young, which garnered him a standing ovation.

In his video, he’d called himself ‘the menace of tennis,’ overseeing two guards as they played in the ‘Grand Slam Open,’ and displaying a $20 million check in the background of one shot.

A miniature motorbike lay on its side at one point, suggesting the Leopard had been involved in some type of bicycle or motorcycle crash, and tofu was also mentioned.

‘Move out of the way, boys,’ the Leopard said as the guards smashed a tennis ball back and forth. ‘It’s time for me to show you what a real champion is made of.’

After singing, he told the judges that he once presented an award on an awards show that included one of them and he’d been wearing a ‘custom leather outfit’ at the time.

His past clues referred to fashion, New York, photography and ‘being tired of being known for [his] marriage,’ which made Jenny think it was Halle Berry’s ex-husband, Eric Benet; others guessed the singers Seal and Enrique Iglesias.

Thingamajig, who’d been in the bottom two last week, followed him with an incredible version of John Legend’s Ordinary People, which T-Pain called ‘amazing.’

In his video package, the singer said he was reconsidering his strategy, noting: ‘My competitors aren’t pulling any punches, so I’ve got to campaign for myself. There’s no time to get crabby.’

Visual clues to his identity included: a guitar, flowers, ‘MVP’ cards with a red guitar on them, a blue athletic jacket, and an ‘On Air’ sign that said ’31, 33, 41, 43,’ with the last two numbers lit up.

‘Bravo! Bravo!’ Jenny yelled after he sang, and an impressed T-Pain offered, ‘That’s got to be John Legend in that thing on stilts.’

‘I’ll just say this,’ Nicole told Thingamajig, who’d been flirting with her for weeks. ‘We can take it slow, honey. We can take it slow.’

Thingamajig told the panel he’d collaborated with the same artist as one of them had, which lead to guesses ranging from singer Montell Jordan to Markelle Fultz from the Orlando Magic.

Up next was the Flamingo, who rocked out to Fleetwood Mac’s Go Your Own Way while dancing in front of a giant pink plane, as flight attendants and pilots circled around her.

‘I can’t believe I’ve flown this high in the competition,’ the Flamingo said. ‘Who would have thought when I was a little girl sitting up in my room with California dreams that I would end up here?’

‘First, I went from clueless to celebrated,’ she continued, as clapping hands, music tapes and the Facebook ‘like’ icon was shown. ‘Then I mingled with other flamingos, and it was like a different world. My flam fam are like my sisters, sister.’

Her clues included a bedroom with a pink vanity and dollhouse, computer with a modem logging on, and an old-school TV with pictures of different birds.

‘It was sassy, it was sexy, it was seamless, it was super,’ Ken raved afterward.

‘I shared some couch time with one of you in 2013,’ the Flamingo told the panel, which had Robin asking: ‘Is that my therapist?’

Hilary Duff, Adrienne Bailon and Fantasia Barron were the judges’ chief guesses.

The Rottweiler went last with an emotional version of Lewis Capaldi’s Someone You Loved, which had the judges saying ‘Oh my God’ as they watched him.

In his video, the performer said he had been plagued by self-doubt, so he took time to meditate every day, even if it was only for 30 seconds.

As he was shown doing so, guards behind him sported baby-carrying gear that held baby dolls.

The judges gave his performance a standing ovation, with Jenny openly crying in front of him.

‘I have to take a breath for that one,’ Nicole offered, calling it ‘one of the most vulnerable and honest performances we’ve seen on that stage, You just brought tears to my eyes.’

‘I feel like you flipped your heart inside out for us, and you just bared it all.’

The Rottweiler then told them that he had been on the same list as one of the judges, which had them guessing everyone from actors Darren Criss and Jared Leto to the singer Bow Wow.

The Masked Singer will return on Wednesday with the last five contestants performing for a spot in the finals.
