On this week’s thrilling episode of The Talent Recap Show, Mel and I discuss the act that totally stole the show: Terry Crews. I know he’s the host but, c’mon, this week was all about Terry. It made us ask the question: is Terry the best AGT host ever?
We still regularly get comments in our videos and posts with people lamenting the departure of Nick Cannon as host. It’s not surprising as he was on for 8 seasons. Then came the brief Tyra Banks era which a lot of people weren’t feeling. It’s not that Tyra was a bad host, far from it. She brought elegance and sexiness to the show and was great with the kids in particular. However, she lacked the humor that Nick brought to the show. When we first saw Terry as host during AGT Champions, he was great but it felt like he was restrained somewhat by the structure of the show. After all, there were no auditions and the acts were established so it didn’t give him a chance to shine. However, this season we really saw what Terry can do as host.
Part of what makes Terry such a great host is the fact that he brings the humor and charisma of Nick and the elegance, style, and sex appeal of Tyra. Plus he also gives us his own brand of Terry Crews magic. He is known in Hollywood as one of the nicest guys in the business. You’d think that someone that ripped would be scary but he’s just a giant teddy bear. So, take our poll below and leave your comments in the video as to who your favorite AGT host has been. You can pick Jerry Springer or Regis Philbin…if you’re a weirdo.
