Scherzinger explained to PEOPLE back in September why she chose to star in Sunset Boulevard in London over participating in season 11 of The Masked Singer. "This is where my talents truly lie. I’m still proving myself," she said at the time, noting that she was at first apprehensive when director Jamie Lloyd approached her about playing the musical's lead character.

"I didn’t get it, because I only ever had Glenn Close in my mind — and Gloria Swanson in the old film," she said. (Close originated the role on Broadway in 1993 and reprised the role on the West End and Broadway in 2016.)

"He was like, 'Don’t watch the movie, don’t listen to anybody else, just read the lines and listen to the music.' And when I did, I just fell in love with Norma. I didn’t realize that this is the role that I’ve been waiting to play all my life. We’re doing a completely different, new interpretation," said Scherzinger, who is set to lead the production's transfer to Broadway in 2024.
