Sayville’s Melissa Joan Hart Revealed as Lamp on The Masked Singer

Famous actress Melissa Joan Hart, a Sayville native, revealed herself as the celebrity behind the lamp costume on Wednesday night’s episode of the Fox television show The Masked Singer.

Decked out in a dazzling bronze outfit and a large headpiece resembling the colorful shade of a Tiffany lamp to cover her face, Hart sang two songs on the competition show: Bananarama’s “Venus” and Elton John’s “Rocketman.” She was then eliminated and revealed herself to the audience.

“This was something I wanted to do for my kids and for myself, I wanted to overcome something,” Hart said on stage. “I have never sang in front of people before. It is terrifying to me. So this was like overcoming a fear, and I did it, guys.”

Hart, 46, is most well-known for her starring roles in the television series Sabrina the Teenage Witch, Clarissa Explains It All, and Melissa & Joey. She grew up in Sayville and began acting at a young age.

The Masked Singer also revealed another ‘90s actress, Alicia Witt, as the celebrity behind the dandelion costume that same night.

Last week, another Long Island native, Twisted Sister frontman Dee Snider, was revealed as a contestant on the show behind an elaborate costume.

The Masked Singer airs Wednesdays at 8 p.m. on Fox.
