Wild'N Out Live Host Profile

Nick Cannon is mostly known for his appearance in America's Got Talent as the TV show's host for 8 seasons. After recently being fired from the show, Cannon decided to evolve his most successful venture throughout his career into a live format, Wild'n Out Live in Times Square. Since then, he's had a baby, Golden Sagon Cannon and also divorced his wife, Mariah Carey of 6 years within the same year.

Wild'N Out Live Background

In addition to the extra cash you’re awarded for being an audience member at Wild’n Out LIVE, you also have a good time. Upon entering the studio, one of the cast members introduces himself and makes several corny jokes on some of the audience members. They tell the audience about the rules and most importantly, to act like Wild’n Out LIVE is one big party. Once the taping begins however, the party begins. Nick Cannon comes out from behind a curtain and starts DJing and everyone claps and ‘whoop, whoops!’ The “So You Wanna Wild Out” contestants are introduced and one by one they battle Nick Cannon, but it’s clear that the final person up for Wildstyle is the one who will always win. In between takes, the atmosphere of the show stays the same.

The crowd warms up, everyone starts mingling and after a half hour, the taping starts feeling like an actual party. Before even setting foot in the building you are given two drink tickets, so after the first segment of Wild’n Out you are allowed to trade the tickets for white or red wine or beer. There is no food at the taping; however a big bowl of candy sits right by the alcohol just for you. Although it is stated NOT to use your phone during tapings, Nick Cannon encourages it, so snap away!

The competition which will run for 20 weeks is called "So You Wanna Wild Out." Three contestants will be put up to the challenge, the one who raps the best punch lines, flys out to L.A. to become one of the members on Wild'n Out and wins their own Wild'n Out Championship Belt. The victor will be decided by a combination of Nick Cannon and social media feedback via Twitter, bringing Millennial and GenZ viewers to watch the show live, something they normally would not do.

Nick Cannon brought Wild'n Out LIVE to TRL's (Total Request Live) old stomping grounds at the Times Square Studios in New York City. A young and hip audience is paired along with New York City's colorful personality.

Wild'n Out Live stars at least two of the regular Wild'n Out cast members and the Wild'n Out Girls. DC Young Fly, Conceited, Chico Bean, and Justina Valentine are the usuals on the LIVE TV show.
