Headlines: Chris Colfer Remembers Naya Rivera, Masked Singer 4 Bigger and Better

The Masked Singer Is Going to Look a Lot Different in Season 4 – You were one of the first shows to stick your neck out and say you’re going forward with production on another season. How are you going to do that, in light of the pandemic, and where are you in the process? Plestis: We’re still working on the process and the logistics. Safety is paramount. We’re working on it as we speak — right now, I’m looking at mock-ups of some of the costumes. I feel confident we’ll solve it. We don’t know what’s happening by fall with the pandemic, the election but we are this island. We need to be there so people can disconnect from everything else happening. – Read more at TV Guide

ACM Awards Voting Closed 6 Months Before the Winners Will Be Announced: How Will That Impact Who Wins? – If Carrie Underwood is named entertainer of the year at the ACM Awards on Sept. 16—and she very well may be—a contributing reason could be that the voting period was so long ago—March 3-11. The winners were to be announced on April 5, but the show was postponed 5-1/2 months because of the COVID-19 pandemic. Underwood has kept a fairly low profile this year, working on a Christmas album, My Gift, which is due Sept. 15. Her most recent studio album, Cry Pretty, was released in September 2018. It yielded four big country hits, but the last one, “Drinking Alone,” was released in November 2019. By contrast, Underwood’s four rivals for entertainer of the year — Luke Bryan, Eric Church, Luke Combs and Thomas Rhett–have all had No. 1 hits on Billboard’s Country Airplay chart this year. Bryan and Combs have each had two. Bryan, who is a two-time winner in this category, topped the chart with “What She Wants Tonight” and “One Margarita.” Combs reached No. 1 with “Even Though I’m Leaving” and “Does to Me,” a collab with fellow nominee Church. Rhett scored with “Beer Can’t Fix,” a collab with Jon Pardi. – Read more at Billboard

Naya Rivera Remembered by ‘Glee’ Co-Star Chris Colfer: ‘Being in Naya’s Presence Made You Feel Protected’ – I’m not sure anyone on Earth could give Naya Rivera the tribute she deserves. In fact, the process of losing her has been such a nightmare, I find myself wondering if Naya was even real or if she was just a dream all along. How could a human being be that talented, that hilarious and that beautiful at once? How could one person be responsible for so much joy and be the subject of so many wonderful memories? – Read more at Variety
