YouTube sensation Lilly Singh is moving from online to on air. 

The 30-year-old star has landed her very own NBC show, "A Little Late With Lilly Singh," replacing Carson Daly on the network's 1:35 a.m. talk show.

"An Indian-Canadian woman with her own late-night show?" Singh, who is the first woman to helm such a show in more than 30 years, said in a statement. "Now that is a dream come true. I’m thrilled to bring it to life on NBC, and I hope my parents consider this to be as exciting as a grandchild.”

The revamped show will feature pre-taped sketches from Singh, a comedian, as well as interviews.

“Lilly is truly a star and we’re thrilled to welcome her to our NBC family,” said NBC Entertainment Executive Vice President Doug Vaughan in a statement. “She is a multi-talented performer who will surely have a great rapport with not only all her guests but also with our devoted late-night audience.

"We can’t wait to get started," he added. 

Singh got her start on YouTube nearly a decade ago, making a name for herself with her hilarious videos. In 2017, she was ranked 10th on Forbes' list of highest paid YouTube stars in the world. 

"A Little Late With Lilly Singh" will make its debut in September. Joan Rivers was the last woman to host a late-night talk show on a major network when she headlined "The Late Show With Joan Rivers" from 1986 to 1987 on Fox.
