Nick Cannon will host America’s Got Talent 4

The new host for America’s Got Talent is Nick Cannon, who NBC says in its announcement is a “multi-talented entertainer/producer and comedian.” The network also announced that Piers Morgan, David Hasselhoff, and Sharon Osbourne will return as judges.

At age 16, Cannon starred on and executive produced Nickelodeon’s Nick Cannon Show, and later went on to star in Nick Cannon Presents Wild’n Out. He’s also an actor and has also several albums.

In his press release quote, Nick sounds ridiculously boring and not like a comedian, because all he does his kiss his new bosses’ asses. Perhaps he should have insisted on writing his own quote: “I’m thrilled to be with working with NBC. Ben Silverman and Paul Teledgy understand my vision as not only an entertainer but as a creative show producer. I look forward to working with the network and their executive team on ‘America’s Got Talent’ and other shows to come,” he said.

NBC chair Ben Silverman said in a press release that hosting the summer reality series “is just the first of multiple projects we are looking to do with Nick at NBC. He’s a true triple threat, a multi-talented producer, actor and musician. We are excited to welcome him to the NBC family.”
