Apparently America’s Got Talent’ found someone who was black but still appealed to the white audience like Cannon claimed. The new host is ANTM creator, Tyra Banks!!!
Get the details about Tyra Banks on the flip…
CelebNMusic247.com has just got word that Tyra Banks will be taking over where Nick Cannon left off on ‘America’s Got Talent.’
After Nick Cannon posted his controversial resignation last month, judge Howie Mandel announced on Twitter Sunday night that Tyra Banks was the new host.
If you recall, Nick Cannon BLASTED AGT after he claimed to be quitting after he was threatened with termination for making racial jokes about the talent competition during a cable special.
“I was to be punished for a joke,” which attacked his moral fiber of what he stands for.
You can’t blame a man for standing for what he believes in. Recently, Nick took to Instagram to weigh in on the media and people claiming he was foolish for turning down million dollar offers.
Does anyone realize that maybe he choose happiness over misery working for a corp he doesn’t believe in?
Meanwhile, Tyra Banks has jumped on the offer in an effort to expand her brand and get more crossover appeal to an audience who may not know her. This is a great move for Banks since her 11 year long “America’s Next Top Model” reality competition series was cancelled on network TV. The show live on via VH1. Banks in in the producer seat while Rita Ora hosts the rebirth of the series.
Tyra said in a statement Sunday night that she looked forward to being part of another show:
“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!”
Well it appears that Nick Cannon is unbothered by the news:
