Keke Palmer may be young but she’s got all the talent one needs to be a successful talk show host!

The 20-year-old has just signed on to host her own daily talk series on BET, focusing on millennials and the issues they care about!

The Keke Palmer Project (working title) will have a 4-week trial run starting in July. Her show is being executive producer by Judge Mathis!

And even though her series hasn’t even aired yet, Keke is already breaking records!

She’s now the youngest person to ever host their own talk show! She beats out Ricki Lake who got her gig hosting her own daily series at age 25!

You go, girl!

Don’t go assuming Keke is done acting though! She’s also set to star in Drew Barrymore’s new horror movie, Animal. AND Keke will have a six-episode arc on the Showtime series, Masters of Sex!

Wow! Keke is KILLING it!

Congratz on the new show, Miz Palmer!
