Rita Ora is set to replace Nicole Scherzinger for The Masked Singer’s 11th season.

The Let You Love Me singer is set to sub in for The Masked Singer host during the show’s 11th season next year.

“So happy the secret is finally out!! I’m joining @maskedsingerfox USA!” Rita wrote on her Instagram Story after the news broke. “Can’t wait to guess who’s behind the mask with the other panelists!”

Rita has served as a judge on the British version of The Masked Singer since it premiered in 2020. She has already judged The X Factor U.K. and The Voice Australia.

Nicole previously announced she would take a break from the show to star as Norma Desmond in the revival of Sunset Boulevard on London’s West End. The production is scheduled to launch later this month at London’s Savoy Theatre.

The Masked Singer’s 11th season is set to launch in 2024, with Rita joining co-hosts Ken Jeong, Jenny McCarthy-Wahlberg, and Robin Thicke.

The show, which is hosted by Nick Cannon, has aired two seasons per year since 2019.

The tenth season of the show, featuring Nicole, will premiere on 27 September. Season 11 is now in production.
