Tyra Banks is the new host of America's Got Talent, and she really could not be more perfect!
Although, of course, no offense whatsoever meant to former host Nick Cannon. He was awesome!
But after leaving in February amidst a bunch of drama, Nick was replaced by Tyra.
When the host change was announced, the supermodel issued a statement that explains exactly why she is such a good choice, saying:
"Since I was a little girl, I've been obsessed with grandiose acts and performers who make the seemingly impossible possible. I love how AGT brings that feeling into everyone's home, capturing the best of people who come out and give it their all to make those big, fierce and outrageous dreams come true. I look forward to connecting with the dreamers, having fun and giving hugs and words of encouragement when needed. And maybe I'll get one or two performers to smize for the audience!"
Damn right she'll get them to smize!
Besides all that, Tyra has plenty of other amazing qualities that make her ideal for this role. Check out our list (below)!
