Favorite Talent Show Host 2019
Terry Crews (AGT)
Terry made his debut as host of AGT: The Champions earlier this year, and returned for Season 14. The actor and former football player brought enthusiasm and great fashion sense to the stage, and even participated in some of the acts.
Ryan Seacrest (American Idol)
The most hard-working man in show business continued his hosting gig on American Idol Season 17 this year. Notably, he took his first-ever sick day since the show started in 2002. In-house mentor Bobby Bones filled in for him during one episode.
Ant & Dec (BGT)
Anthony McPartlin and Declan Donnelly have hosted BGT since it began in 2007. This year, they also hosted the Champions version of the show. They always bring humor to the stage, and this season they even managed to fool the judges with an audition of their own.
James Corden (The World’s Best)
Talk show host James Corden hosted the debut season of The World’s Best on CBS earlier this year. Notably, James carried his association with the series over to his late-night show, where he had some of the contestants (including escape artist Matt Johnson) on as guests.
Carson Daly (The Voice)
Carson has been hosting The Voice since the first season. Now that Adam Levine has left the series, he and Blake Shelton are the only famous faces who have been on the show for its entire run. Perhaps because of this, Carson and Blake had some great banter going during the most recent season.
Nick Cannon (The Masked Singer)
The former AGT host started hosting a new competition show earlier this year, and returned for a second season. Nick is kept just as in the dark about the singers’ identities as the viewers and judges are. Each week, he’s tasked with interviewing the celebrities to provide us with the clues we need to figure it all out.
Tom Bergeron (Dancing With the Stars)
Tom has been hosting Dancing with the Stars since its very first season, in 2005. This season, Tom spoke up about the controversial inclusion of former White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer in the cast of celebrities. He said he had hoped the season would be a break from the “exhausting political climate.”
Dermot O’Leary (X Factor: Celebrity)
Dermot has presented The X Factor on ITV since 2007, with a break in 2015. He returned to host the celebrity version of the show earlier this year. In an interview, he said that the famous contestants have “less to lose” than those in typical seasons of the show, so they seem to have less fear.
Amanda Seales (Bring the Funny)
This comedian and actress joined a panel of funny people to round out Bring the Funny’s first season. Amanda does stand-up, hosts a podcast, and even created her own web series, so she has a lot of experience in various avenues of comedy, making her a great choice to emcee the show.
Jeff Probst (Survivor)
Jeff has been hosting Survivor for 39 seasons now, since 2000. Notably, at the end of this season, Jeff apologized to contestant Kellee Kim for how she was treated by the show after accusing fellow contestant Dan Spilo of sexual harassment.
