Tyra Isn't Hosting 'America's Got Talent' Anymore Because She's Working on More Exciting Things

By Pippa Raga

America's Got Talent is back for the 700th time, this time with a best-of spinoff called America's Got Talent: The Champions set to premiere tonight on NBC. Winners of past seasons, including dance troupe Justice Crew and viral singer Susan Boyle, will be facing off to compete for the title of champion. Because one major national win isn't good enough for some, we guess.

And on the other side of the competition is the returning board of judges, featuring show creator Simon Cowell, Mel B, Heidi Klum and Howie Mandel. But America's Got Talent has a new host this season in Terry Crews, because everyone's favorite host of the now-reprised America's Next Top Model, Tyra Banks, decided to step away from the competition show last fall.
