Tyra Banks is making another TV comeback!
According to TMZ, the former “America’s Next Top Model” host has signed on to replace Nick Cannon as the host of “America’s Got Talent.”
The tabloid reports that after Cannon split, the top choices for a replacement included Marlon Wayans, Tone Bell and Brandon Mychal Smith; Banks was nowhere on the radar. Wayans reportedly asked for more than the producers were willing to pay, and execs at NBC weren’t sold on Smith.
Filming was put on hold when Mel B announced that her father passed away after a battle with cancer. The break reportedly left “AGT” without a host until they decided on Banks.
Both Banks and judge Howie Mandel confirmed the news.
Looks like season 12 will make it to your TV after all!
