HOWIE MANDEL desperately wanted NICK CANNON to return as host of "America's Got Talent".
But I guess Nick wasn't feeling it. Because Howie announced in an Instagram video yesterday that the show has a new host.
And it's TYRA BANKS. He said, quote, "Now a few of us models, all working together . . . I can just feel the glue already drying."
And in a statement to E!, Tyra said, quote, "Since I was a little girl, I've been obsessed with grandiose acts and performers who make the seemingly impossible possible.
"I love how 'AGT' brings that feeling into everyone's home, capturing the best of people who come out and give it their all to make those big, fierce and outrageous dreams come true.
"I look forward to connecting with the dreamers, having fun and giving hugs and words of encouragement when needed. And maybe I'll get one or two performers to smize for the audience!"
