The acclaimed YouTube star is set to replace Carson Daly as the host of NBC’s 1:35 A.M. talk show beginning in September 2019.
The 30-year-old shared the news of her show, renamed “A Little Late With Lilly Singh,” on the “Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon” on Thursday.
“I’m so excited because I get to create a show from scratch, I get to make it inclusive, I get to create comedy segments and interview people and really create something that I believe in,” she told Jimmy.
Following the announcement, Lilly received massive praise from famous friends and fans:
