The British singer-songwriter, who replaced Nicole Scherzinger in season 11, will reprise her role as a panelist on the upcoming 12th season of the hit FOX series.

AceShowbiz - Rita Ora, who joined "The Masked Singer" in season 11 as Nicole Scherzinger's replacement, reportedly will be returning to the panel for another season. She will be joined by series regulars Ken Jeong, Jenny McCarthy-Walhberg, Robin Thicke and host Nick Cannon.

Scherzinger, who has been a judge on the show for 10 seasons, will not be returning this season due to a scheduling conflict. She is set to star in the Broadway production of "Sunset Boulevard' in New York City, beginning performances on September 28.

Despite her absence, sources indicate that no casting decisions have been made for any seasons beyond season 12, leaving the door open for Scherzinger's potential return.

Ora has had extensive experience with the show, having served as a panelist for five seasons of the U.K. version of "The Masked Singer". She expressed her excitement about the possibility of returning for additional seasons stateside, saying, "I would love [that]. I've had such a great experience."

Production for season 12 of "The Masked Singer" began last week, and the new episodes are scheduled to air this fall on FOX.
