Natasha Bedingfield has a pocketful of secrets about this summer's hottest new tour.
After appearing as Pepper on season 6 of The Masked Singer in 2021, the 40-year-old performer fell in love with the reality show where celebrities face off against each other in elaborate costumes to conceal their identities.
Now she's ready to bring Fox's hit show on the road this summer as host of the Masked Singer 2022 North American tour.
"I had a really good conversation with the producers and as they explained to me what this show is about, they really convinced me to join," Natasha exclusively shared with E! News. "I found out that this show has a story line just like any kind of show that you might go watch on Broadway."
She added, "The story is how do the characters find their true authentic selves—without the celebrity—inside."
As host of the show, Natasha will be singing her biggest hits and showing off her own dance moves. She also promises an interactive show where attendees can guess which celebrity guest is behind the costumes.
In just the first weekend of shows, audience members have been treated to special appearances from American Idol winner Maddie Poppe and 98 Degrees' Drew Lachey.
"There may be a famous athlete who's from your area or there may be a famous newscaster or an actor or a singer," she teased. "It will be really fun to see if people guess. They'll be singing and wearing a costume and I love that the show has kept that guessing element."
