Banks announced her return via Instagram and Twitter:

In the tweet she says: “I missed my ANTM baby so Mama’s back! #ANTM #ANTM24”

As expected, her fans are rejoicing.

I guess we can all agree that ANTM just wasn’t the same without Tyra Banks.

Banks was replaced as a host for cycle 23 with singer-actress Rita Ora. It’s all good between them, though. She acknowledged Ora’s contribution to the show via Twitter:

“Mizz @ritaora, you exemplify Business Boss Brand to the fullest! Thank you for all the amazingness you brought to ANTM”

Ora gracefully replied and handed back the show to Banks:

What a beautiful exchange between two ladies of beauty and incredible talent.

America’s Next Top Model has gone a long way since Tyra Banks created the show in 2003. Now with 23 cycles (or seasons), and another one in the works, ANTM has allowed lots of big modeling dreams come true.

Aside from the new contestants and new challenges, we’re all just excited to have Tyra back! We were rooting for you, Queen T. You did not disappoint.
