“She definitely wanted me to continue, you know, representing us as a group,” Pointer said of her sister. “And I’m at her beautiful home in Beverly Hills now and hanging out with her, and me and her and her granddaughter Roxy and a friend Melissa saw it together last night and just made our heads scream.”

Ruth Pointer sang 'Phineas' by Bruno Mars.

After revealing their identities, contestants often comment on how difficult it is to perform in their elaborate costumes.

“You know those wardrobe boxes you use to pack? If you’re going, if you can imagine singing in over your head you know how I felt,” she explained.

Ultimately, panelist Nicole Scherzinger guessed it was the pointer on the back of the cupcake, while the other panelists guessed wrong.

Ruth Pointer compared the display in her dress to a wardrobe box.

“I felt honored to connect with people who were trying to guess who I was — Roberta Flack, Tina Turner, Grace Jones, Leslie Jones, RuPaul,” Pointer insisted.

“The Masked Singer” returns Wednesday, October 21.
