The “You Only Love Me” singer, 32, is swapping places with regular Masked Singer panelist Nicole Scherzinger, who is booked to perform in London’s West End.

In a recent interview with Entertainment Weekly on whether she would continue with The Masked Singer should the show get renewed for future seasons, Scherzinger replied, “Oh my gosh, I would love to, are you kidding me? I love my [Masked Singer] family. And it’s such a great job. Are you kidding? I love it. Yes.”

The addition of Ora — who previously appeared in the British edition of the mysterious celebrity singing competition — marks the first time that there has been a panel change in the show since its debut in 2019.   

The Masked Singer kicked off its 10th season Sunday featuring all of the original panelists. A new official teaser video for season 10 was unveiled Wednesday and included a preview snippet of Ora’s debut.

“I like it here in Hollywood,” Ora says in the clip seated in her new chair. “I might stick around. I like it.”
