The Masked Singers Group B went off to see the wizard when they made their debut on Wednesday’s The Wizard of Oz night.

The show began with season 4 winner LeAnn Rimes (Sun) singing “Somewhere Over the Rainbow,” and judges Ken Jeong, Jenny McCarthy, Rita Ora and Robin Thicke dressed up as the 1939 movie’s main characters

First up for Group B: Gumball.

Gumball said he felt most inspired by the Tin Man because “when you met him, he was a little rusty — maybe just like me.”

In Gumball’s clue package, the candy machine explained that their “heart took quite a beating because my yellow brick road to success came with zero directions.”

The package revealed a heart on a map of the American South, a drum set, a spider and a horse-drawn carriage.

“I did anything and everything to get an audience,” Gumball said. “I beatboxed on the street. I performed at theme parks and even got booed of the stage at a competition — for winning.”

Gumball opened with “If I Only Had a Heart” by Jack Haley before transitioning to “Heartbeat Song” by Kelly Clarkson.

“I hope he wins,” said McCarthy, 52.

A heart clock served as Gumball’s extra clue before the panelists made their guesses.

“Deep down, at the end of the day, Tin Man always had the heart of a superhero — and I actually might, too,” Gumball stated.

The judges thought Gumball might be Chace Crawford, Jamie Dornan or Kevin Jonas.

Miss Cleocatra graced the stage next. She felt inspired by Glinda the Good Witch.

“Long ago, I was living life in Technicolor,” Miss Cleocatra said in her clue package that also showed Bel-Air and a “vacay” luggage tag. “But I always worried the empire I built would all crumble beneath me.”

The regal cat alluded to mental health issues, discussing life “going from gorgeous rainbow to horrendous black and white” until a “diagnosis” made everything “crystal clear.”

Miss Cleocatra affirmed, “I’m so glad I reached out for help.”

Miss Cleocatra covered “Stormy Weather” by Etta James.

Miss Gulch brought out an extra clue for Miss Cleocatra: a wand with a star.

“I’ve already worked my magic on an Emmy award-winning show,” Miss Cleocatra said.

Loretta Devine, Taraji P. Henson and Sheryl Lee Ralph arose as options for Miss Cleocatra’s identity.

Afghan Hound, inspired by the Cowardly Lion, followed up with a courageous performance.

“Just like the Lion, every single day I tell myself to be brave,” Afghan Hound said.

The dog said in her clue package that, as a kid, “I would dream about what life could be like over the rainbow.”

Afghan Hound’s dreams came true with her family by her side. “We were together, until recently,” the pup continued. “Suddenly, it was like our whole house came crashing down, and I found myself alone, lost and left to pick up the pieces.”

Afghan Hound admitted she “definitely can’t sing” but wanted to come on the show to “have fun.” The package additionally featured a houndstooth and a TV remote.

Afghan Hound gave her best shot on “The Lion Sleeps Tonight” by The Tokens.

The Men in Black delivered a badge of courage for Afghan Hound’s additional clue.

“It takes courage to be on TV, especially with the characters of my family,” Afghan Hound said.

The judges suspected Afhgan Hound could be Bethenny Frankel, Brooke Hogan, Olivia Jade or Sistine Stallone.

Beets closed out the night. The veggies drew inspiration from Dorothy and Toto “because of loyalty as friends.”

“Home for us has been wherever were together,” one Beet said in their clue package. “And for a moment, we had millions of eyes on us.”

“Yeah, 40 million of them,” the second Beet chimed in.

Playing cards, the two of hearts, a Beeting the Odds book and a radio popped up in the clue package.

“All we need now is to find the nerve to turn up together on this stage,” the second Beet continued. “It’ll be like going back to our roots.”

Beets tackled “Home” by Michael Bublé.

“That was just perfect,” said Jeong, 54.

A real Toto dog scampered on stage as Beets’ extra clue.

“Like Toto and Dorothy, we’re the best of friends,” one Beet said.

The other added, “And we’re pretty good costars too.”

The panel floated Will Arnett and Jason Bateman, K-Ci and JoJo, and Steve Martin and Martin Short as possibilities for Beets.

Once all of Group B gave their first performances, the audience voted for their favorite of the night. The two contestants with the fewest votes would battle it out in the Smackdown.

Host Nick Cannon announced that Afghan Hound and Gumball would be the ones fighting for their lives in the Smackdown. They each put their spins on “Ding Dong the Witch Is Dead” by Harold Arlen and Yip Harburg, and Gumball ended up winning.

That meant Afghan Hound would head home and pop off their mask. When Afghan Hound unleashed the mane, Chrisley Knows Best’s Savannah Chrisley appeared.

“Honestly, over the past year my life has changed drastically, I lost both my parents to the federal system and now I have custody of my 15-year-old brother [Grayson] and 10-year-old sister [Chloe],” the reality star, 26, said after being unmasked. “If I could teach them anything, it’s to take every opportunity that comes your way and don’t back down.”

Chrisley shared that she went on the show because her parents Todd and Julie could watch it from prison.

“I know singing is not for me — I don’t know what a note is, nor do I know what rhythm is,” the Special Forces alum said. “But it was a good experience!”
