It was revealed Thursday evening that the wildly popular web star would replace Carson Daly's 1:35 a.m. spot on NBC with her new show, A Little Late.

Singh will announce her new gig on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon tonight (see preview clip above).

As one of the most successful and lucrative YouTube stars ever (where she's known as IISuperwomanII), Singh has amassed more than 14 million subscribers on her channel. Lilly Singh is changing that ratio with her upcoming NBC show, 'A Little Late with Lilly Singh'.

"I'm so excited because I truly get to create a show from scratch", Singh told Fallon Thursday night.

YouTube star Lilly Singh only left the platform in November, but she's already got a new stage. "But I do think it's a little awesome for an Indian-Canadian woman also to get a show".

What made it even more special: Seth Meyers, host of Late Night With Seth Meyers, also came out and surprised her on the set. "Now that is a dream come true", Singh added. "We can't wait to get started". "I'm thrilled to bring it to life on NBC, and I hope m parents consider this to be as exciting as a grandchild". She has uploaded a range of viral videos (772 total) and comedic sketches like "Comedy Skit with Dr. Phil Gone Wrong" to "How To Make A Migos Song".

Earlier in the day, Singh teased the "biggest announcement of my career", posting a photo in front of her Tonight Show dressing room. She's collaborated with makeup giant Smashbox on a red lipstick called "Bawse", and teamed up with Me to We to sell #GirlLove bracelets and necklaces to support the education of girls around the world. "This has been SO long in the making and I'm so happy I can finally share this with you". The Indian-Canadian now has over 14 million subscribers.

She has since branched out into music, writing and acting, with small roles in Ice Age: Collision Course and HBO's Fahrenheit 451. "But now I'm fully embracing them as my superpowers", she wrote.
