Nick Cannon doesn’t have any hard feelings towards his replacement on “America’s Got Talent.”

Cannon quit the franchise after hosting the popular show for eight seasons because he said he was being punished by NBC executives over a racial joke that he said in his stand-up special last month.

“I find myself in a dark place having to make a decision that I wish I didn’t have to,” Cannon said. “But as a man, an artist and a voice for my community, I will not be silenced, controlled, or treated like a piece of property."

Although Banks taught the world how to "smize" for 22 cycles of “America’s Next Top Model,” the actress and model is ready for a new American competition show.
