‘The Masked Singer’ Season Nine Reveals First Two Eliminations – Including the Show’s Oldest Entertainer’s Exit

There wasn’t a dry eye in the room when “The Masked Singer” unveiled one of the two costumed singers who left at the start of season nine.

The guessing game of the game show is back, offering its usual assortment of themed episodes and mystery guests. Although the judges could have saved one of them, thanks to a new rule allowing one save per episode, they didn’t use it this week.

SPOILER ALERT: If you haven’t seen tonight’s show, read no further:

The first revelation of the night was Gnome, whose performance of the oldie but goodie “When You’re Smiling” fit his elfin face.

The gnome turned out to be 97-year-old Dick Van Dyke. The judges guessed that the masked singer could be Dustin Hoffman, Robert DeNiro or Mel Brooks. But once Van Dyke was unmasked, the judges were beside themselves, with Nicole Scherzinger breaking down in tears.

Van Dyke beat William Shatner’s age record from last year, and was recognized by host Nick Cannon as the “most decorated and seasoned entertainer” to appear on the show.

After everyone calmed down, it was time to move on to the second masked singer, who performed a rendition of Whitesnake’s “Here I Go Again.” Judges’ guesses range from Hart’s Anne Wilson to Joan Jett.

Medusa defeated Mustang in a gun-off, so it was time for Mustang to run away. She was revealed as country star Sarah Evans.
