Damar Hamlin is delighted with the surprise appearance of “Masked Singer”

(CNN) “Sesame Street” brought Damar Hamlin to “The Masked Singer.”

In an episode that aired Wednesday night, the Buffalo Bills player, who collapsed after suffering cardiac arrest during a game in January, surprised the audience and the judges with an appearance.

The show kicked off with a cast of “Sesame Street” characters, including Big Bird, Cookie Monster, Count Elmo, Grover, and Oscar the Grouch, performing the BTS hit “Dynamite.”

Later, Damir Hamlin came out to sit on the porch and talk to Elmo who asked his name and who he was there with. When the kid said he was there with his brother, Elmo said, “Let’s get him out!”

Those in attendance went wild as the elder Hamlin appeared and host Nick Cannon said, “Ladies and gentlemen, Buffalo Bills in the building! Damar Hamlin, the man who brought the world together, inspiring us all! “

Hamlin flashed the heart sign he makes with his hands, which is now associated with him.

Judge and actor Ken Jeong jumped for joy before shouting, “Thank you!” Fellow judge Nicole Scherzinger noted that “Ken freaks out!”

“I’m so glad you’re here, but more importantly, I’m so glad you’re healthy,” Jeong said. “The whole world loves you! The whole world loves you!”

The professional footballer thanked him and explained why he was there.

“Mostly because of my brother,” he said. “It’s my world. I put family first and he loves ‘Sesame Street’ more than most things, so we had to do that tonight.”

There has been an outpouring of support for Hamlin since his medical incident.
