LOS ANGELES (AP) — Tyra Banks is hosting the 12th season of “America’s Got Talent.” NBC said Sunday that the supermodel, Emmy-winner and creator of “America’s Next Top Model” will be joining the competition series alongside returning judges Simon Cowell, Mel B, Heidi Klum and Howie Mandel.

Banks will be taking over hosting duties from Nick Cannon, who left the show earlier this year after eight years in the post. Banks said she looks forward to “connecting with the dreamers” and will try to get a few to “smize” for the audience.

    No way!!! Tyra is likeable but she is no Marlon Wayans or Sheri Shephard. She will not do well at all. I think AGT is going to lose a lot of viewers than ever before. She look better handling a model show.

    I really like Tyra, but I just can’t see her in this role. I am hoping it works out for her, because I really do like her…but we’ll have to wait and see if it’s going to be a good fit or her.
