Tyra Banks has been confirmed as the new host of “America’s Got Talent”, reports Deadline.

Veteran judge Howie Mandel announced the news on social media, which will mark Banks’ return to reality TV after also hosting “America’s Next Top Model”.

The ex-model will replace long-standing AGT host Nick Cannon, who quit last month.


“Since I was a little girl, I’ve been obsessed with grandiose acts and performers who make the seemingly impossible possible,” said Banks, “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.”

Judges Simon Cowell, Heidi Klum, Mel B. and Howie Mandel are all confirmed to be returning for the next season. JB
