Singh, who also goes by the name Superwoman, announced the news on fellow NBC host Jimmy Fallon's show on Thursday.

Singh's announcement that she will be joining the male-dominated late-night host circuit is definitely a sign of progress.

Singh's new show is titled A Little Late With Lilly Singh and the hire will make Singh the only woman to now host a late-night talk show on a Big 4 broadcast network.

"I'm so honored and humbled", Singh continued.

"But now I have more than three staff members, and my sound guy won't also be an extra and write the script". "But I do think it's a little awesome". "Now that is a dream come true", Singh, 30, said in a statement. "I'm thrilled to bring it to life on NBC, and I hope my parents consider this to be as exciting as a grandchild".

Chicago Bears sign Ha Ha Clinton-Dix: Grade, reaction and more
The opportunity to pair up with former Alabama teammate Eddie Jackson in the Bears' secondary was one he didn't want to pass up. Chicago quickly filled the hole left by the departed Callahan with veteran Buster Skrine, most recently of the Jets.

Singh's show will air after Fallon and Late Night with Seth Meyers.

The news comes weeks after Singh quietly came out as bisexual. "This is so surreal".

"I'm numb. I can't even process. No matter how many "boxes" you check, I encourage you to do the same". Lilly's show will include comedy segments and she will also be interviewing guests.

In 2017, she was ranked tenth on the Forbes list of the world's highest paid YouTube stars.

It means a very late start for Singh, who will become the only female late-night host on network television, as she'll sign on at 1:35 a.m. ET after "Late Night with Seth Meyers". Lilly is truly a jack of all trades, as she's lent her acting chops to movies like Bad Moms (starring Mila Kunis) and Fahrenheit 451 (starring Michael B. Jordan), and was even the leading lady in her own web series, Lana Steele: Makeup Sky. However, Daly will keep his roles on NBC's The Voice and Today.

In February, Singh made headlines when she publicly announced she is bisexual.

Singh said she no longer looks at these traits as "obstacles" but rather her "superpowers".
