  • NBC Taps YouTube Star Lilly Singh to Fill Carson Daly's Late-Night Slot

"Now that is a dream come true", Singh added. However, Daly will keep his roles on NBC's The Voice and Today.

Daly said last month that he's chose to end his "Last Call" show to focus on new and continuing projects, including as host and producer of NBC's "The Voice".

Lilly Singh, who has more than 14 million subscribers on her YouTube channel, announced her new gig on "The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon" Thursday night.

It'll make her the only woman to now host a late-night talk show on one of the Big 4 networks.

As an actress, she appeared in the Emmy-nominated HBO film Fahrenheit 451, opposite Michael Shannon and Michael B. Jordan. She also appeared in the films Bad Moms and Ice Age: Collision Course. 

Two weeks ago Singh also made headlines by announcing she is bisexual, noting that as a bisexual female person of color that "throughout my life these have proven to be obstacles from time to time".

In 2017, the York University graduate released the book "How to be a Bawse: A Guide to Conquering Life". Beyond her relatable spoofs, she's been candid about why she calls herself a feminist, ending in-fighting between girls, her relationship with her parents, and the importance of confidence and self-love. Singh is the first Canadian woman, and first South Asian Canadian to crack that title.

In February, Singh came out as bisexual in an emotional message on Twitter.

That broad appeal is likely exactly what network TV is hoping to encapsulate with this show. Singh will conduct in-studio interviews as well as create and star in pre-taped comedy sketches and signature segments.

"Lilly is truly a star and we're thrilled to welcome her to our NBC family", Doug Vaughan, NBC Entertainment's executive vice president of special programs and late night, said in a statement.

Now the 30-year old comedian, who is also known as Superwoman, is set to join the late night arena with her very own show on NBC: A Little Late With Lilly Singh. "We can't wait to get started".

In 2017, she was ranked tenth on the Forbes list of the world's highest paid YouTube stars. Singh will executive produce and Polly Auritt will co-executive produce.
