"Ya girl is getting her own NBC late-night show", Singh said excitedly, which prompted the audience and Jimmy Fallon to erupt in cheers and applause.

A Little Late With Lilly Singh will make its debut in September and take over Carson Daly's Last Call With Carson Daly slot on the network.

"Singh's popular YouTube channel, where she's known as "||Superwoman||", has more than 14.5 million subscribers; she's also an actress, with recent roles on Life in Pieces and in HBO's Fahrenheit 451. "I'm so excited because I truly get to create a show from scratch", she gushed on Thursday's show.

Singh's new show, titled A Little Late With Lilly Singh, will feature her conducting in-studio interviews, along with creating and starring in pre-taped comedy sketches and other "signature segments", per the network.

The court passes the verdict while allowing a writ filed by Sreesanth challenging the BCCI disciplinary committee's decision. The issue of Sreesanth's ban might be discussed on the sidelines of the meeting as well.

"I'm so honored and humbled", Singh continued. Lilly will fit right in with the slate of late-night hosts, as she's no stranger to making millions of people laugh and already counts celebrities among her friends (hi, Selena Gomez). Under the moniker "IISuperwomanII", she now has 14.5 million YouTube subscribers.

The multi-hyphenate star first rose to fame as a comedian and vlogger on YouTube, where she posted videos as a way to fight through her depression. Her YouTube pseudonym is IISuperwomanII. More than pride, the book earned Lilly a six-figure advance, Forbes also reported. Universal TV is producing with Unicorn Island. The famous vlogger and comedy queen actually graduated with a bachelor's degree in psychology from York University in Toronto in 2010, and started her YouTube channel that same year.

She will replace Carson Daly in September, and her 1.30am show will be retitled A Little Late with Lilly Singh. "A huge shoutout to all of the women who have been before me and are now in the space because I couldn't have done it without them paving the path", Singh said.
