NBC Taps Lilly Singh to Replace Carson Daly in Late Night

NBC Taps Lilly Singh to Replace Carson Daly in Late Night”

"Ya girl is getting her own NBC late-night show", Singh said excitedly, which prompted the audience and Jimmy Fallon to erupt in cheers and applause. Titled A Little Late with Lilly Singh, the show makes Lilly the only woman having a late night show on a major network. "I am so honored and humbled".

The TV personality said she was "honoured and privileged" to be offered the role, adding in a press release: "An Indian-Canadian woman with her own late night show?" Fallon and fellow NBC late-night host Seth Meyers did a Champagne toast for her and posed for what Fallon joked was "a cheesy family photo".

Daly announced last month that he would be bringing an end to his show, saying that he is hoping to focus on new projects, as well his job as the host of the network's popular singing show The Voice.

"I'm numb. I can't even process".

Singh also posted her excitement on Twitter on Thursday, giving a shoutout to her fanbase. "This has been SO long in the making and I'm so happy I can finally share this with you". In addition, she has acted in movies such as "Bad Moms" and HBO's "Fahrenheit 451".

Singh will be replacing Last Call With Carson Daily.

The comedian, who hails from Scarborough, Ont., is taking over from Carson Daly on NBC.

In February, Singh came out as bisexual, an announcement many hailed as a potentially massive step forward for immigrant communities' acceptance of same-sex relationships, thanks to her widespread popularity. She kicked off her YouTube career in 2010 under the pseudonym "IISuperwomanII" and has since grown to become one of the platform's most successful stars, earning a reported $10.5 million in 2017.

"✅ Female ✅ Coloured ✅ Bisexual ••• 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".
