America's Got Talent Terry Crews Nick Cannon The Masked SingerSamantha Agate | Talent Recap

It’s time to settle the age-old debate on who is the best host of all time of America’s Got Talent. While Tyra Banks and Jerry Springer are also good candidates, the main two that are always up for debate are Nick Cannon and Terry Crews. Yes, they have both been involved in controversy lately, but putting that aside, each of them has something unique to offer to America’s Got Talent.

Is Nick Cannon Or Terry Crews The Better Host Of ‘America’s Got Talent’?

Nick has definitely made waves recently after making anti-semitic comments on his podcast that caused him to be fired from Viacom. He put out several apologies on Facebook and we were all biting our nails to see if he would be fired from The Masked Singer. And Terry caused some controversy when he tweeted about “black supremacy” and doubled down on his tweets in the wake of the Black Lives Matter movement. But all that aside, we have to focus on their hosting abilities on America’s Got Talent.

Is Nick The Better Host Of ‘AGT’?

First off, Nick comes from a comedy background so he really brought the laughs to America’s Got Talent. He left the show after hosting for 11 seasons when NBC told him to tone down some of the jokes in his comedy specials on Showtime. But what an incredible 11 seasons it was. Coming from the MTV show Wild ‘N Out that he started in 2005, Nick took the comedy and improv skills he learned to ‘AGT’ which made him more personable and energetic. He was really able to connect to the acts and the audience in a humorous way and made some hilarious faces that turned into some of our favorite internet memes. Not to mention, he was always down to join the acts on stage and basically be the America’s Got Talent guinea pig.

There wasn’t a single act whether it was danger or comedy that he refused to be the volunteer for. Nick has also been very independent. Whatever he is involved in whether it be his podcast or his philanthropy, he really puts his heart and soul into it. And, of course, we have to talk about how good of a host he is on The Masked Singer. He makes the show hilarious and is really invested in finding out who each masked celebrity is. Plus, he was always great at announcing who was being eliminated or who was the winner of the competition by building anticipation just with his voice. When the lights were dim on ‘AGT’ and the results were about to be delivered, all focus was on Nick because of how captivating he was and is as a host.

Is Terry The Better Host Of ‘AGT’?

Now we have to talk about the best pec dancer the world has ever seen that brings so much passion to America’s Got Talent. Terry really shines as the host because of the emotional connection he builds with each of the acts. When they cry, he cries and when they laugh, he laughs. He really has a father-like energy backstage when he is consoling the acts or hugging them after their amazing performances. A lot of this is because he is a huge family man. Terry has never been shy to talk about the love he has for his wife Rebecca and his family and that really does translate well onstage. He is a huge teddy bear when it comes to America’s Got Talent and is genuinely a super nice guy. That’s one thing that makes people fall in love with him and marvel at how genuine he is.

Another thing that makes Terry a good candidate as the best host is that he is a fan of America’s Got Talent before anything else. He loves the show and has always enjoyed watching it even before he became the host. In fact, he said that he would work on the show for free if it came down to it because he loves it that much. He is loyal to both NBC and Simon Cowell whom he sided with during the Gabrielle Union racism controversy. Terry literally said that he wants to host the show forever, so it’s pretty safe to assume that he will never be fired from the show. He really does bring the passion that longtime America’s Got Talent fans have fallen in love with.

So, Who Is The Best Host Of ‘America’s Got Talent?’

We have to say that both Nick and Terry bring something special to the table when it comes to hosting America’s Got Talent. Nick definitely brought the laughs and Terry brings the passion.
