‘The Masked Singer’: Nick Cannon and Ken Jeong discuss working on FOX show together
NEW YORK - It’s a ‘The Masked Singer’ reunion.
On Nick Cannon’s daytime talk show, the host and comedian sat down virtually with Ken Jeong, a panelist on ‘The Masked Singer,’ to talk about working together on FOX’s hit reality series.
"I learned so much from you over the past six seasons," Jeong, who also hosts the FOX series "I Can See Your Voice," said Wednesday. "I don't think I've ever said this before publicly. What Nick does behind the scenes on 'The Masked Singer' — you're the best listener. You're the best host on television because you listen the best."

Jeong continued, adding "We’ll all go off on rants for 10, 15 minutes and Nick is so patient. You just wait, and then as soon as you see an opening at the very end when I say something silly, then you just crush it with like a punchline, and it's so artful what you do behind the scenes."
