If you are like me, then you were shocked when NBC announced last week that they hired Tyra Banks to replace Nick Cannon as the host of America’s Got Talent. It looks like we are not alone because this photo of her with the 4 judges, Howie Mandel, Mel B, Heidi Klum and Simon Cowell, comes off as really awkward to me. The former AGT host always seemed to bend down a bit to show they were all friends. In this picture, it is like she thinks she is the star. What she doesn’t realize, on shows like this one, the host is the person who gets the least attention. Which is fine with me when it comes to her. Seriously, why did they hire her?
Tyra Banks went from being off of out televisions, to be back on them. Over the weekend, NBC hired her as the host of America’s Got Talent and today VH1 announced that she will be returning to America’s Next Top Model as a host.
It makes you wonder why she is back doing the show? Could be because the show did not do well on its new home and they are thinking she will save it. Or she saw how bad it did in the ratings and insisted she would return to save it. Personally, I don’t think the VH1 audience will welcome her because they are too young to know who she is. Plus, I think a lot of people don’t like her and were happy when we thought she went away. Who wants her back? Does anyone?
Last month, Nick Cannon abruptly quit America’s Got Talent and late yesterday Simon Cowell and NBC announced who is going to replace him. The new host of the competition show is Tyra Banks and I give it 4 Xs. What are they thinking?
A good host is about the contestants and not themselves, with Tyra everything is about Tyra and Banks and Tyra Banks. Plus, who still likes her? That is why she suddenly departed not one but two of the shows she hosted last year. She said she left her talk show FABLife and America’s Next Top Model because of her businesses and new baby, but let’s be honest that is not what any of us thought happened.
And I wouldn’t be shocked if there were rumors about tension between judge Heidi Klum and her before the show debuts in May. While Tyra is no longer working on ANTM, Klum is still hosting the successful German version. I am sure that has to bother Banks.
When it comes to watching AGT, no way I will watch with her hosting. She is a channel turner. NBC has some great people within their own network they could’ve gone with like David Alan Grier and Jeff Dye, so I don’t what they are thinking.
This decision makes absolutely no sense to me. Can you make sense of what they were thinking when they hired her? The only thing I can think of is either Freemantle or Simon Cowell are working on a show with her and they think this will help get them all some publicity?
For so many seasons, Tyra Banks forced many of the contestants on America’s Next Top Model to go from long to very short, and yet the supermodel kept her long locks. Well, that is not the case any more because Banks finally got the Pixie cut herself. You know what, she makes it work. But let’s see how long it will take her to quit that look. I say she will have an all-new weave by the end of the month. How long do you give her do?
Tyra Banks is going to be on Sesame Street and she sings the Alphabet Song with Abby. The model definitely knows her ABC’s, but she doesn’t know to act. I have seen better acting done in an elementary school play than what she attempted to do.
