The day will be quite momentous, as she will be debuting her show on the very same day that she is celebrating her 41st birthday.

"This is going to be such a gift," she told the L.A. Times, as she opened up about her career, its future, and what fans can expect from her new program.

She endearingly explained: "If I were not working on my birthday, that is what I would be wishing for — performing on a stage or a platform. I love bringing people together on one accord and positivity.

The new host's first big break was on American Idol

She recalled: "There's this thing in my life where I will just say something. Like I used to run around saying, 'I'm the next Oprah.'"

Years later, she is well on her way to making her manifestations real, and as a star with such wide ranging talents, she promised viewers she'll use them all for her show. She said: "There will obviously be music, and there will be entertainment… There will be everyday people, and there will be celebrities. I want to make it an experience for everyone."
