On the eve of the season 5 Masked Singer production kick-off, super host Nick Cannon, has tested positive for COVID-19. Cannon was ready to get to work on the hit FOX show tomorrow, February 5 but instead he will be quarantining and resting.
Cannon’s absence is clearly not ideal for the production team but the producers have decided to move forward with the schedule and have invited actress and comedian, Niecy Nash to fill-in for the popular host. Nash is no stranger to the show as she has appeared as a guest judge in the past. Fans will get to have some fun again with the Claws star for the first few episodes until Cannon is COVID free and back to 100% healthy.
Let’s keep Nick in our prayers for a speedy recovery as we know, he previously announced he suffers from lupus nephritis. Get well soon!

While some of you may have been sleeping, Saturday Night Live aired their 46th season. The show was hosted by Chris Rock and included fresh new skits and some new faces. Life as we know it has changed drastically since COVID-19, but SNL was there to relieve some of that stress that may have been building up. One of the highlights of the night was Alec Baldwin and Jim Carrey’s sketch reenacting the disastrous Presidential debate that occurred earlier this week. Chris Rock was joined by musical guest, Megan Thee Stallion.
The rapper had a powerful message to send about black women being the most disrespected and unprotected person in the world. In addition, she emphasized how important it is to protect black women and protect black men. Touching on the ongoing senseless violence against black men in America.
Something that caught many eyes in one of Megan’s performances was the visual of bleeding gunshots in the backdrop. This clearly was in reference to Megan Thee Stallion becoming a gun violence survivor back in August. While the jury is still out on that case, the message was still very much truthful and needs to be heard on a national platform regularly until changes occur.
Saturday Night Live has announced that the next two episodes will be hosted by Insecure’s Issa Rae and comedian Bill Burr.
