Tyra Banks to Replace Nick Cannon as Host of America’s Got Talent

As reported by E! Online, in a press release Tyra shares her excitement for hosting and how she appreciates AGT as an outlet for new talent.
“Since I was a little girl, I’ve been obsessed with grandiose acts and performers who make the seemingly impossible possible,” she says. “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.”
“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 smile for the audience!”
