June “Mama June” Shannon and daughter Alana “Honey Boo Boo” Thompson appeared virtually (from two separate vehicles, no less) on Nick Cannon’s daytime talk show on Thursday, where the former stars of “Here Comes Honey Boo Boo” discussed their latest stay at “The Masked Singer”.

Cannon, who hosts the singing competition, asked the mother-daughter duo what it was like to be dressed up as the giant Beach Ball before being revealed during this week’s episode.

“I think Alana was about to kill me,” Shannon said of being trapped in such a close environment with her teenage daughter.

“It was definitely a lot different because I never think I’ve been that close to my mom for such a long time,” Thompson explained with a laugh, “but we had a lot of fun.”

Shannon added: “I have to say that for us I represented the karaoke side of America. But I think we had more fun outside the costume than we had inside the costume, because you know we closed the show down it evening.”


Performing with her daughter, she added, also brought up some emotions.

“I cried a little bit when we started performing, because if anyone can see, Alana is [the kind of] person who loves the scene, ”Shannon said.

“It was something I’ve never done before, but I had a lot of fun,” Thompson added.

The two also shared their impressions of performing on “The Masked Singer” in an interview with People, where Shannon opened up about how emotional it was for her to share that experience with her daughter after a particularly stressful period in their lives due to Shannon’s well-documented struggle with addiction.

“I realized that the last time we were out there together and doing a huge project, which was ‘Dancing with the Stars,’ I was in my addiction,” Shannon admitted.

“But during ‘The Masked Singer’ I had been clean for over a year and a half. So for me it was an emotional experience, and that was probably why I cried when we were on stage the night of the show, ”she said. “Because I was actually doing something with her for the first time outside of everyday life, our show – a huge project in California – was sober.”
