Indian-Canadian YouTube sensation, Lilly Singh is all set to host her own talk show. Here are the details.
New Delhi: Bawse woman, YouTube sensation Lilly Singh is all set to take over the idiot box too. After years of entertaining millions of viewers via her online channel, Singh is all set to replace veteran show host, Carson Daly as the host of NBC's late-night talk show.
This move will make the Indian-Canadian star the only female to host a late-night talk show on one of the Big 4 networks, reports variety.com. The show will be re-titled, A Little Late with Lilly Singh, and will launch in September.
Singh appeared on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon this Thursday to make the announcement. "An Indian-Canadian woman with her own late night show? Now that is a dream come true. I'm thrilled to bring it to life on NBC, and I hope my parents consider this to be as exciting as a grandchild," she said.
The Internet star also took to her social media handles to pen a heartfelt caption, expressing her joy at the news. She wrote, "Not only did I get to announce this dream come true on @fallontonight but @sethmeyers came out and surprised me as well! I’m so grateful and overwhelmed to be joining this incredible family. I’m numb. I can’t even process."
Singh also made headlines recently when she came out as bisexual on social media and claimed it was her superpower, including being a female and an Indian. She took to Instagram to share a photograph of herself sans makeup and looking all gorgeous. She captioned the post, "Throughout my life, these have proven to be obstacles from time to time. But now I’m fully embracing them as my superpowers. No matter how many “boxes” you check, I encourage you to do the same x"
