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

Appearing on Thursday's Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, Singh made the announcement official, telling the studio audience, who gave her a standing ovation, "I do have an announcement and that is that ya girl is getting her own NBC late-night show!" In her interview with Fallon, Singh described the show as being an "inclusive" extension of her YouTube channel, with comedy segments and interviews.

Singh's appointment is historic, as it makes her the only woman to now lead a late-night show on a broadcast network.

Daly had already announced his exit in February, saying: "If you had told me in 2002 I would be a part of the historic NBC late-night family for 17 years, I would have said you were insane!".

YouTube star Lilly Singh only left the platform in November, but she's already got a new stage.

The show will launch in September. She has uploaded a range of viral videos (772 total) and comedic sketches like "Comedy Skit with Dr. Phil Gone Wrong" to "How To Make A Migos Song". "I'm thrilled to bring it to life on NBC, and I hope my parents consider this to be as exciting as a grandchild".

Singh also shared the news on Instagram writing, "I can't even believe I am writing this caption". She posted her debut video on the platform eight years ago, and has since garnered 14 million subscribers, along with almost six million more on Twitter and over eight million fans on Instagram, making her one of the most successful YouTube personalities of all time.

Singh will be replacing Last Call With Carson Daily.

In the February 24 tweet Singh referred to herself as "female, coloured, bisexual", adding: "Throughout my life these have proven to be obstacles from time to time. This has been SO long in the making and I'm so happy I can finally share this with you".

In 2017, she was ranked tenth on the Forbes list of the world's highest paid YouTube stars. But now I'm fully embracing them as my superpowers.
