For her part, Banks says she‚Äôs always ‚Äúbeen obsessed with grandiose acts and performers who make the seemingly impossible possible,‚ÄĚ which is what she seems to think AGT brings into ‚Äúeveryone‚Äôs home.‚ÄĚ Banks also managed to work in references to being ‚Äúfierce‚ÄĚ and ‚Äúsmizing,‚ÄĚ in case you‚Äôd forgotten what her qualifications for this gig are.
