What an exciting time for Rita Ora!

On Thursday, Tyra Banks revealed that Rita will be the next host of America's Next Top Model. The beauty made the announcement via USA Today following months of rumors that the singer would take her place.

Speaking on the new direction of the show Ora is set to materialize, Banks explained:

"It's no longer just about having the highest cheekbones and best pout and the best hair. My goal is to really get into these girls' heads that I'm not looking for some successful model and I'm not looking for some social-media star. I'm looking for both. I'm looking for a hybrid, because that's where the world is."

Hmm… this sounds like the franchise is looking for a Kendall Jenner and Gigi Hadid type. Should be interesting!

As for R.O., she believes she's more than capable of embodying the new spirit of the show:

"The approach I wanted to have as a host and judge to the girls is what my career stands for at this moment in time, which is being a businesswoman and being able to do multiple things at the same time, whether it's music or shooting (magazine covers) and being in movies and designing clothes."

Well, you can't deny the 25-year-old IS a triple threat. We can see this one working out!

As for where they are in shooting the season, Ora confessed:

"I actually just finished my first elimination. I can't go into detail, but it was definitely an emotional one."

Ohhh, drama already! Nice.

But wait, that's not all! Paper magazine chief creative officer Drew Elliott, stylist Law Roach and model Ashley Graham will also join the judge's panel this season.

So, what do YOU think of Tyra's picks?
