“I gave the whole show to you and you’re kicking me off?” Cannon joked to Nash. “I tried it all the way!”

Panelists Nicole Scherzinger, Jenny McCarthy Wahlberg, Ken Jeong and Robin Thicke were not given a final guess because of the unusual nature of this exposition. But after his performance, the names they quoted were Andy Samberg, Chris Tucker, Eddie Murphy and Chris Rock.
Thicke noticed that Cannon was able to hide his voice by singing “Candy Girl” on the faulty song. The panel could have been thrown away by a clue, “And .. Live from New York, It’s Saturday Night Live,” where Cannon as Bulldog explains, “My dog’s house is in New York. I’m just a funny lover who likes to broadcast live. “
Cannon’s voice gave a clue, while the Bulldog didn’t get much help, however: “My whole life, I had to fight for myself. Move on to any challenge that comes to me, moving on every green field with panthers and pit bulls. Run fast like a human torch Yes, I’m a hot dog. Technically, the sexiest dogs are alive, people. But don’t be fooled by all the beasts, I’m the big one inside. I will sit, give my paws anything that will make you love me. So beware of the dog’s kiss. Now this puppy is going to blow the last two wildcards out of the water. And become the most popular pet on stage. And I am dedicating the performance to someone very special. [Nash]. ”
That wasn’t the only unusual moment in this week’s episode where Nash said “more chaos than has been seen” before, Crab nearly collapsed – and almost took off his dress, leaving Mickey Ru. Kirk in season 4.
