The masked singer has been going Nick Cannon for a while now Shortly before the season five launch, it was announced that the former M Mariah Carey had tested positive for COVID-19 and Niecy Nash would step in to host the Fox reality contest until he could safely return to work (Cannon’s hate speech scandal did not stop him to take the stage, but at least public health concerns did) Well, Cannon has apparently had a clean bill of his own and will be returning as host in next week’s episode Nash Was A Change welcome to fans of the very expensive guessing game, but it will be good not to hear Judge Ken Jeong calling her “mom” every 30 seconds

During tonight’s episode, Bulldog entered the competition as one of the ‘wild’ contestants added to the mix periodically, one of many twists in this season’s ‘The Nasal Version of’ Bulldog “from New Editon’s” Candy Girl “closed an evening which also saw performances by Black Swan (probably the lead singer of” Leave (Get Out) “JoJo), Chamelon (probably Wiz Khalifa) and Piglet (certainly Nick Lachey) ; as well as last week’s wild card entry King Crab, who had a mild panic attack after overheating in his suit

The unfortunate panic attack actually provided an interesting look behind the scenes of the set as the cameras followed poor Crab to their waiting area where they unmasked themselves behind a curtain. But that drama aside, the main event was the planned revelation of the ‘America’s vote’, which was to dictate which candidate was to be eliminated and unmasked. In pre-COVID seasons, The Masked Singer asked his live studio audience to vote with the judges To prove that the vote was totally going, they were showing footage of members of the public and judges looking at their phones, wondering which warbler to send the packaging Because this season, the live audience is actually just footage from past seasons, we were told that a small group of superfans had the option to vote at home – but it was never explained how. these superfans are watching these episodes in real time, so how can we trust him? (As with Dancing With The Stars, the producers never revealed how the judges’ votes are weighted against the audience’s vote, so there has probably always been some shenanigans anyway.)

But, this week, Niecy Nash was tired of the masquerade As the five remaining Group B candidates stood in front of her waiting to hear the results of the vote, Nash – channeling Republicans in Georgia – revealed that she changed the game, rejected the votes and decided the loser herself The judges were shocked (or at least feigned shock) when Nash named Bulldog his choice to unmask, but it all made sense once it was revealed it was none other than Nick Cannon in mask. golden dog
