Viewers have noticed that Tyra Banks if off of AGT this season and many are wondering what took place. She had served as the host of the summer program for the past two seasons.

Before Tyra Banks, Nick Cannon had served as the host of America’s Got Talent. Before Cannon, the host was actually Jerry Springer.

When the producers decided to try out AGT: The Champions this winter, a new host was brought along for the ride.

The new AGT host is Terry Crews, who has become very well-known for his work in movies and on television. He is currently one of the stars of Brooklyn Nine-Nine.


Why did Tyra Banks leave America’s Got Talent?

Following her second season, during the summer 2018 for America’s Got Talent, Tyra Banks seemed to decide that she was done with the show. She spoke about possibly walking away from the role, even though she had a lot of fan support to come back again.

It seems like everything was amicable, and that Banks was just interested in moving on to other things.

A show like AGT requires a huge time commitment during the year, as there is a lot that goes into making reality competition shows such as this one.

That’s a bit different than when Nick Cannon left the show, as there was some controversy surrounding that move.

Terry Crews has been receiving mixed reviews for his appearance as the new AGT host.

He has helped explain some other changes to the show, which includes the new superfans, who vote in place of America this winter. I

t has also been an interesting wrinkle in the show, even though a lot of the specific details have been kept under wraps by NBC.

America’s Got Talent airs Monday nights at 8/7c on ABC.
