Nick Cannon makes Masked Singer return and the panelists have a surprising reaction in new clip
In an exclusive clip from Wednesday's episode of the show on Fox, Cannon makes his return as host of the show after Niecy Nash had filled in for him to start the season while he recovered from COVID-19. To welcome him back, the panelists — Robin Thicke, Nicole Scherzinger, Ken Jeong, and Jenny McCarthy-Wahlberg — have quite the hilarious surprise in store.
The panelists' surprise follows Cannon's shocking surprise of his own during last week's show, when he competed as a contestant. During the episode, which featured Group B returning to the stage with another new Wildcard celebrity, the Bulldog, the blinged-out pup was unmasked — at Nash's behest — to reveal Cannon.
This week, we'll find out who will advance to the Super 8 when Group A takes the stage, and the last Wildcard enters the competition. As for the rest of the season, Fox has announced that the schedule will be as follows:
