America鈥檚 Next Top Model was a trailblazing reality show. Before Project Runway or Rupaul鈥檚 Drag Race, glam host extraordinaire Tyra Banks was there week after week dispensing her expertise to wannabe models and giving us some of our most memorable reality competition moments (Tyra鈥檚 fierceness is legendary!). Well, good news for those of us who loved watching the CW show, which ended its 22-cycle run last December: ANTM is coming back, and it鈥檚 got a new host, panel and network to (hopefully) breathe new life into the show.

Moving over to cable鈥檚 VH1, Rita Ora is taking over the reins as the show鈥檚 new judge/host supreme. It鈥檚 a controversial choice for the show; although her style is always on point (Exhibit A: Rainbow hair perfection), Rita鈥檚 definitely known as more of a singer/actress than model. And while the new incarnation of the beloved show is also saying goodbye to judges Miss J and Jay Manuel, it鈥檚 gaining stylist Law Roach and Paper Mag Chief Creative Officer Drew Elliott instead.

One deet that diehard ANTM fans will appreciate: The show is going back to its original all-female model format. And while Tyra won鈥檛 be there all the time, the former ANTM host (and current ANTM Executive Producer) promises to make appearances on the show, giving contestants her expertise from time to time.

For what it鈥檚 worth, VH1 doesn鈥檛 appear to be trying to reinvent the wheel on the show. Instead, they seem to be working on bringing the brand back鈥 and we鈥檙e so curious to see the outcome.
