“America’s Got Talent” is about to get fierce.
The NBC show has crowned Tyra Banks as its new emcee for its upcoming twelfth season.
The former “America’s Next Top Model” host will be replacing Nick Cannon following his controversial resignation last month, judge Howie Mandel announced on Twitter Sunday night.
In a Facebook post, Cannon claimed to be quitting after he was threatened with termination for making racial jokes about the talent competition during a cable special.
