Tyra Banks Announced As New Host Of America’s Got Talent
Tyra Banks has a new gig!!
The former supermodel will replace Nick Cannon as the new host of America’s Got Talent!! “Since I was a little girl, I’ve been obsessed with grandiose acts and performers who make the seemingly impossible possible. I love how ‘AGT’ brings that feeling into everyone’s home, capturing the best of people who come out and give it their all to make those big, fierce and outrageous dreams come true,” she said in a press release.
“I look forward to connecting with the dreamers, having fun and giving hugs and words of encouragement when needed. And maybe I’ll get one or two performers to smize for the audience!”
Cannon quit the show last month amidst rumors that NBC execs were considering giving him the pink slip over a racial joke he used during a stand-up performance. Marlon Wayans was reportedly in the running to replace him, but negotiations with the network reportedly fell apart because of money.
