Nick Cannon will be stepping down from his The Masked Singer duties for now. Page Six reports that he has tested positive for COVID-19.
Since production for The Masked Singer begins soon, Niecy Nash is temporarily stepping in to host. She had previously appeared on the show as a guest panelist on Season 4 last year.
Cannon, who has hosted since 2019, is expected to return to the show at a later date. The Masked Singer also stars Robin Thicke, Ken Jeong, Nicole Scherzinger, and Jenny McCarthy.
Season 5 of The Masked Singer is scheduled to premiere next month.
