Lilly Singh Will Take Over Carson Daly's Late-Night Slot on NBC

Canadian You Tube Star Lilly Singh Gets Her Own NBC Late Night Show NBC Taps YouTube Star Lilly Singh to Fill Carson Daly's Late-Night Slot

Singh took to Twitter to gush about her new job calling it 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". "I am so honored and humbled". Singh, who also goes by the name Superwoman, announced the news on fellow NBC host Jimmy Fallon's show on Thursday.

Before becoming a late-night host, Singh established herself as a major presence on YouTube, going viral with her hilarious comedy videos.

Seth Meyers crept out toward the end of Singh's segment with some glasses of champagne to celebrate her joining the NBC family, with all three hosts posing for a cheesy photo.

When the show debuts, Singh will be the only woman hosting a late night show on broadcast television. In recent years, "Last Call with Carson Daly", the show Singh is replacing, morphed into a mixture of taped interviews and musical performances bookended by brief apperances by Daly to accomodate his busy schedule. She's collaborated with makeup giant Smashbox on a red lipstick called "Bawse", and teamed up with Me to We to sell #GirlLove bracelets and necklaces to support the education of girls around the world.

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

Singh, who kicked off her YouTube career in 2017, is also an actress and comedian. "No matter how many "boxes" you check, I encourage you to do the same". Lilly is truly a jack of all trades, as she's lent her acting chops to movies like Bad Moms (starring Mila Kunis) and Fahrenheit 451 (starring Michael B. Jordan), and was even the leading lady in her own web series, Lana Steele: Makeup Sky.

Singh's YouTube channel has more than 14 million subscribers, where she writes, produces and stars in comedic and inspirational videos.

NBC has found its replacement for Carson Daly. "Throughout my life these have proven to be obstacles from time to time". There's so many people to thank and I will do so over the next few (or hundred) posts. "But now I'm fully embracing them as my superpowers", she wrote.
