Right before the competition, Amber said production showed her a couple of idea and sketches for costumes, including “The Harp.” She said she felt a connection to “The Harp” as it’s “a spiritual instrument.”
“The sketch was beautiful and when I walked in and saw the costume, I was taken aback,” she said. “I felt like I was dressed for the Met Gala. I loved my costume.”
Overall, Amber said participating in the competition show “meant a lot.”
She explained that during the pandemic, she watched the show alongside her mom and her friends as it was a “way to connect when we couldn’t see one another.”
“When they asked me [to do ‘The Masked Singer’], it was an immediate yes,” she said. “I had a ball.”
Amber on Making History
During the chat, Jennifer brought up how Amber is the first celebrity to win both "The Masked Singer" and "Dancing with the Stars."
Amber, along with partner Derek Hough, took home the Mirrorball Trophy in 2013 during the dancing show’s seventh season.
“You cleaning up,” Jennifer told her.
When she won “The Masked Singer,” Amber said she didn’t immediately “correlate the two” accomplishments until people mentioned it to her.
Amber also noted that “The Harp” was the first instrument costume that the U.S. version of “The Masked Singer” has ever had. (This year, tennis player Pat Cash was “Bagpipes” on the U.K. version.)
