Tyra Banks Named New Host Of ‘America’s Got Talent’

Published: Sunday 12th Mar 2017 by Sam

Tyra Banks has snagged another major TV role.

For, the supermodel turned super-mogul has just been announced as the new host of America’s Got Talent. 

Details below…

In a dramatic twist, the media maven has been confirmed as the replacement for Nick Cannon – who departed under dramatic circumstances earlier this month.

Judge Howie Mandel made the reveal on social media moments ago, with Banks co-signing shortly after.

The gig marks a mainstream return for Banks, who created and ‘America’s Next Top Model.‘ She still serves as the executive producer of the recently revived series on VH1.

It also stands as the mother of one’s first major on-camera project since featuring on ill-fated talk-show The FabLife.

Panelists for the 2017 season of ‘America’s Got Talent’ are Simon Cowell, Mel B, Mandel, and Heidi Klum.

Welcome back, Tyra!

    Perfect choice!

  3. Ughhhh March 12, 2017

    I will start watching now! Nick was way too corny and annoying for me!

    Umm…this job is so beneath Tyra. They must be writing her a pretty big check and giving her a Producer credit too. Otherwise, I can’t see her doing this.

    • chileplease (first and only bih) March 12, 2017

      Right. I cant see her hosting for the hell of it.

  5. Hmmm… March 12, 2017

    I would much rather Tyra be a judge. A host though? Nope. I can’t see it. And I agree that it’s beneath her. Heidi gets a chair but Tyra is standing the whole show announcing names?? Nope. There’s a difference between hosting a talk show and a show like AGT. She was still the “star” on her talk show and even on ANTM. This just doesn’t feel right. The host isn’t a huge deal, who cares, but I’m generally not here it.

      I concur….witw

      The situation could be like Ryan Seacrest, he wasn’t a judge, but he made more money by just being the host.

    No tyra girl don’t do it! Ur too big for this unless they’re paying u the same amount as the judges don’t do it! It should be u on that seat and Heidi doing the hosting

  11. Crooklyn March 12, 2017

    LOL! tyra is not that big of an star anymore and so this show should give her some type of relevance.

  12. Abel Minaj March 12, 2017

    I still miss her talk show

  13. Diora Couture March 12, 2017

    This is bad. she always makes things about herself. what’s she gonna look like trying to talk about how SHE used to do this and SHE used to be that while introducing an act? a MESSY decision.

  14. DanYiel Iman March 13, 2017

    Debating on watching now…

  15. mimi March 13, 2017

    y’all realise hosts, especially big hosts, earn the most on these shows right?

  16. MusicLife March 13, 2017

    I immediately thought it wasn’t beneath her too

    Like HeidiKl she basically her peer model wise but her ass is a judge and she like the other three judges aren’t even American. I don’t like it but it does make me intrigued to watch finally and see how she isn’t as a host for a variety competition show.

    Rather her to host her solo talk show again or be the big boss on Celeb apprentice though.

    Congratulations to her

  18. Starxavi March 14, 2017

    Im sure she is getting a hefty check probably as much as the judges if not more…and she wouldn’t come back to hosting for pennies..

  19. Ralo March 16, 2017

    miss her talk show
