Nick Cannon is back! After having to sit outside most of the season, the Masked singer The host puts on his shiny loafers again to direct an exciting new episode and reveal his glittering cannon of clues.
In this exclusive clip from Wednesday’s Group A Finals, Cannon reveals his own cannon – most notably, an air-powered T-shirt cannon that he uses to fire clues at the panel of famous detectives.
The host reveals his clue delivery system after a new performance by The Russian Dolls, the show’s first group of three-person contestants, and jokes about how “he must have a golden barrel.”
“Be careful where you point that thing, buddy,” jokes Robin Thicke.
Cannon uses the launcher to shoot a red jersey at Thicke, Jenny McCarthy, Nicole Scherzinger, and Ken Jeong, who have a chance to reveal the clue on the jersey.
“It says, ‘What goes around comes around,'” Jeong shares, showing the two-sided shirt with yellow lettering scrawled on it.
This is apparently tied to the secret identities of the three Russian Doll contestants, though fans will have to wait and see how that track ties into the bigger picture, and if it helps people figure out who’s underneath the bulbous costumes. .
Cannon’s return to the show came after Niecy Nash replaced him for the first half of the season, due to the host testing positive for COVID-19 shortly before production began. Cannon made his big comeback last week, when he actually competed as the wild card character The Bulldog, and his unmasking came as a surprise to the panel.
Fans will have a chance to catch the first episode of Cannon when The Masked Singer begins Wednesday at 8 pm ET / PT on Fox.
