“Surprise! TyTy is the new host of #AGT,” Tyra Banks so tweeted, after being named the show’s [America’s Got Talent] new host.
The supermodel-turned-business-mogul, in her tweet, also tagged the handles of judges Mel B, Howie Mandel, Heidi Klum, and Simon Cowell, saying she “can’t wait 2work” with her “new fam.”
Not long after Banks’ announcement, Mandel welcomed Banks with a GIF “introducing our new host.”
This comes shortly after Nick Cannon, according to TMZ, got “shaken to his core” and seriously questioned his value as an entertainer after NBC unleashed its fury on him, which led him to the decision to quit “America’s Got Talent” after eight seasons as the show’s host.
