America’s Got Talent is returning in the winter and when it does, it will have a new host.
NBC announced on Thursday that Terry Crews will host America’s Got Talent: The Champions when it debuts in January. Crews will fill in for regular season host Tyra Banks, who will be hosting America’s Next Top Model.
“I am so proud and honored to join Simon, Mel, Heidi and Howie in hosting the #1 alternative series on television,” Crews said. “NBC’s ‘America’s Got Talent’ is a show I love to watch with my family and now to actually be a part of this special edition, ‘The Champions,’ is more than I could have asked or dreamed. Now America’s Got Terry Crews!”
Simon Cowell will serve as an executive producer and judge. Mel B, Heidi Klum, and Howie Mandel all are returning to the judge’s desk for the one-month special.
Britain’s Got Talent standout Susan Boyle is reportedly set to compete in the upcoming series.
