Natasha Bedingfield talks "Masked Singer" tour: 

Natasha Bedingfield seemed to effortlessly wow audiences as Pepper on the sixth season of the FOX hit "The Masked Singer," but the Grammy-nominated singer-songwriter says behind-the-scenes, it was a mad dash to even make it on the stage. 

"It was a last-minute thing. I actually had a whole plan  a vacation plan — [and] I had to change everything within a few days and suddenly learn songs," says Bedingfield, best known for hits including "Unwritten" and "Pocketful of Sunshine." But the challenge of performing inside a massive costume — one that limited her vision and mobility — is one the singer says was more than worth it in the end.

"It was a great experience, it really was," says Bedingfield. "It was fun to kind of sing other people’s songs, and to explore not having people see my face."  

And now, the singer’s association with "The Masked Singer" continues as Bedingfield serves as host and performer on the show’s national tour, which kicked offon May 28 and makes it way through 50 cities throughout the summer. 

The tour will stop at Atlanta’s Fox Theatre June 26. 

"One of the themes of the show is going to be finding your authentic self, says the singer. Which is a message that is really in my song ‘Unwritten.’ So, for me, it really aligns with one of the things that I like to talk about."

Along with Bedingfield, the show will feature appearances from characters made popular on the hit competition series, including Queen of Hearts, Taco, Alien, and Thingamabob. The shows will also feature a secret local celebrity during each tour stop, who will be unmasked at the end of the evening.For more information on the tour and to buy tickets for the Atlanta stop, click here.
