Tyra Banks Welcomed To America's Got Talent In New Sneak Preview (VIDEO)
America's Got Talent season 12 is premiering Tuesday and NBC recently released a clip in which current judges, Simon Cowell, Howie Mandel, Mel B and Heidi Klum welcome new host Tyra Banks to the show. Banks will helm this iteration, and will replace previous host, Nick Cannon, who infamously quit the show after some racial comments he made.
Banks receives quite a welcome in the new clip. In addition to hugs and a confetti shower, she also receives a cake, which she promptly licks along with the other female judges.
Reception to Banks joining the show has been mixed. While many are excited to see a fresh face, there are also those who really miss Cannon and feel he was treated harshly when the video with his comments emerged. Fans have been sharing the hashtag "BringBackNick" to show their support for him in social media.
America's Got Talent will be premiering tomorrow on NBC at 8 p.m. The show will be scouring the country in search of the greatest talent. The last person voted by America will win a one million dollar grand prize, and will succeed previous winner, Grace VanderWaal.
