British singer Cynthia Erivo said she would love to see it while another fan asked Whoopi was going to do a meet and greet. 

According to Good HouseKeeping, this isn't Whoopi first time of reprising her role of acting alongside Saunders as she did so in 2010 at the London Palladium.

She talked about her decision to rejoin the musical on the show saying that the offer came when she was trying to kickstart "Sister Act 3."

Goldberg recalled:

"These guys, the folks that do Sister Act on stage, said, listen, would you come and do Deloris and we'll make some adjustments? 'Cause, you know, I'm a little older than I was."

This comes after Entertainment Online reports that Whoopi and her co-host Meghan McCain got in an awkward heated exchange on last week Wednesday's airing of the talk show when discussing Liz Cheney's absence from the show. 

The duo argued because McCain believed the management was trying to cut her off and they employed Whoopi to do their dirty job.
