Canadian Lilly Singh is Going to Light Up Late Night

VERY exciting news from NBC today!

Lilly Singh will be taking over Carson Daley’s spot in the late night lineup with her new show “A Little Late with Lilly Singh”.  Hailing from Scarborough, Ont., Singh already has a massive career as a YouTuber, cracking the 2017 top 10 most successful YouTube earners with 10.5 million.

“An Indian-Canadian woman with her own late night show? Now that is a dream come true,” Singh said in a news release sent to several outlets. “I’m thrilled to bring it to life on NBC, and I hope my parents consider this to be as exciting as a grandchild.”

‘A Little Late with Lilly Singh’ is set to air in September and will make Singh the only woman at the helm of an every-night late night show. Even though the show’s time slot isn’t until 1:35 am in the morning, there is sure to be a massive following who will at the very least record it to watch the next day.

Watch her announcement on Jimmy Fallon below:
