The current question running through the minds of many America’s Got Talent lovers is how the popular show would be affected when Terry Crews steps into the big shoes left by the incredible show host Tyra Banks.
We still recall the debut line up of judges on one of the most popular America’s TV show America’s Got Talent (AGT). It consisted of only three judges; American singer Brandy, famed journalist, Piers Morgan, as well as David ‘The Hoff’ Hasselhoff. Better still there was a time when Regis Philbin – the original presenter of Who Wants to Be a Millionaire used to present the show.
Although the people behind the AGT have shown that they are not afraid of revamping the show in its 14th season, the resultant effect can go either way; it could mean either trouble or resounding success for the stellar viewership America’s Got Talent
currently enjoys with Terry Crews it new presenter.
Why Is Terry Crews Is Replacing Tyra Banks On America’s Got Talent?
Tyra Banks is not a stranger in presenting television shows; in fact, she was a resounding success on America’s Next Top Model. She came into AGT during the 12th season to take the place of Nick Cannon, and just a couple of seasons later, she is stepping down.
According to Banks, she will be investing more time into producing rather than hosting. However, sources have it that Banks’ time with AGT was not all rosy as it happened that a lawsuit was filed against the show as a result of an incident involving Banks in which she allegedly reacted in an unprofessional manner and even insulted a young girl by the name Mary Doe, whose parents were contestants on the show.
Furthermore, rumor has it that the producers of the show did not want to get entangled with such a case. Hence, in December 2018, in a statement made through Deadline magazine, they announced that Terry Crews is set to be the replacement for Banks on America’s Got Talent show.
Who Is Terry Crews?
Terry Crews is best known as an actor and an ex-football player with the National Football League (NFL) who has garnered faithful followership in addition to an army of haters which is somewhat strange when you take the ex-footballer’s amazing personality into consideration.
Moreso it is worth noting that in spite of his imposing stature, Terry Crews is also described by his close friends and family as a fun loving person and it is that inherent energy he exhibits that has made him a memorable part of some popular comic movies like Bridesmaids as well as White Chicks.
What To Expect From Terry Crews On The AGT?
On his own part, Terry Crews has expressed his happiness at the prospect of joining AGT. According to him, NBC’s America’s Got Talent is top on the list for him and his family as they love to sit and watch every season. He added that now that he is actually going to physically present in this special edition, he is extremely thrilled to be a crew member of the show is definitely more than he could have dreamt or asked for.
On the other hand, raving fans of the AGT show are more than eager to witness the ever-positive Terry Crews in action and they just can’t wait to see how he will measure up to Banks or possibly surpass her. Though this will not be the first time that Terry will be going behind the mic as he handled both the People’s Choice Awards as well as the Gamer’s Choice Awards (the 2018 editions of both awards), the actor has expressed that there is a uniqueness in AGT that makes this opportunity stand out from the rest, and being a raving fan of the show makes it even better.
Terry Crews has already given us a foretaste of what to expect from him with his hosting performance in America’s Got Talent: The Champions. Besides, when you consider the fact that AGT is already close to his heart, there is no shred of doubt that he is going to give his best to this critical role as he works alongside other judges on the show that include Heidi Klum, Howie Mandel, Mel B, and Simon Cowell.
