“The Masked Singer” Season 3 made its time-period debut Wednesday night following its big premiere, which aired in the coveted post-Super Bowl slot on Sunday. And at the end of tonight’s episode of the smash-hit celebrity singing competition came the second elimination and subsequent unmasking of a third season contestant: The Llama.

Following the booting of Robot, who turned out to be Lil Wayne, on the first episode of Season 3, tonight’s hour saw the remaining members of Group A — Miss Monster, Llama, Kangaroo, Turtle and White Tiger — compete in their “playoff” round.

After those five Season 3 contestants performed, it was time for panelists Jenny McCarthy, Nicole Scherzinger, Ken Jeong and Robin Thicke, along with guest judge Jason Biggs and the studio audience, to choose the “weakest” performer for elimination.

They picked Llama, who had performed Tom Jones’ “It’s Not Unusual” and unmasked him to reveal comedian and “The Price Is Right” host Drew Carey. Before Carey was revealed, the judges threw out these incorrect guesses for his identity: Johnny Knoxville, Joel McHale, Zach Galifianakis, Matthew McConaughey, Woody Harrelson, Kelsey Grammer and Adam Carolla.

Along with the now-eliminated Llama and Robot, the full Season 3 lineup of masked contestants includes Banana, Miss Monster, Frog, Mouse, Kangaroo, White Tiger, Turtle, Astronaut, Swan, Kitty, Bear, Elephant, Rhino, T-Rex, Night Angel and Taco. Between those 18 contestants they’ve “amassed a combined 69 Grammy Award nominations, 88 Gold records, 11 Super Bowl appearances, three stars on the Hollywood Walk of Fame, more than 160 tattoos and one title in the Guinness Book of World Records,” according to Fox.

Per Fox, “The format will be changing slightly in season three. The contestants will be split into three groups of six – Group A, B, and C. Group A will kick off the first three episodes as they whittle down from 6 to 3 singers. Then we will meet Group B as they go from 6 to 3, then Group C. The final 9 contestants from these three groups will then come together and battle it out the rest of the season for the golden mask trophy. As always, one celebrity will still be unmasked in every episode, including the premiere.”

“The Masked Singer” airs Wednesday at 8/7c on Fox.
