  • Tyra Banks is promising lots of "smizing" when Dancing With the Stars season 29 airs this fall.

  • The America's Next Top Model creator recently replaced Tom Bergeron and Erin Andrews on the show.

  • Fans are getting excited to see what Tyra will bring to Dancing With the Stars.

Buckle up, Dancing With the Stars fans: Tyra Banks has some new ideas up her sleeve for the upcoming season this fall.

After news broke that Tyra would be the new host and an executive producer on Dancing With the Stars season 29, the 46-year-old model shared a video of herself on social media teasing what's in store. In short, fans can expect lots of "smizing," or smiling with your eyes — a term Tyra made popular while on America's Next Top Model.

"I am so excited, you guys," Tyra said in a video to her fans last Thursday. "This is going to be, like, bananas. We're going to take Dancing With the Stars to the next level."

In the clip, Tyra says that she's inspired by the idea of "spotting," which is when dancers focus on one location to keep them from getting dizzy while spinning. By the sounds of things, she plans on bringing spotting and smizing together for the newest season. What that'll look like exactly ... we'll have to wait to find out.

"Did you think I was going to waltz on over to Dancing With the Stars and not bring you with me?" she asked her fans. "Oh no, baby, we will be smizing on ABC."

Reacting to the video, Tyra's fans expressed excitement over the former America's Got Talent host bringing her magic to the popular dance competition show. "So glad you were selected to host #DWTS! You are going to bring the show to great heights and I can't wait to watch. Hope all is well!" one fan tweeted. "I'm excited for dancing with the stars," another said. "Congrats Tyra! Next Level," a different fan wrote back, while showing off their own "smize."

Tyra will be replacing longtime host Tom Bergeron and Erin Andrews for the newest season. Both former co-hosts were nothing but gracious when their exits were announced. After thanking the show for his 15-year hosting gig, Tom made a funny quip on Twitter.

"I guess I won't be getting back my monogrammed towels," he tweeted, referencing his and Tyra's shared initials.

Meanwhile, Erin said on social media: "I will always cherish my days on that set, even if I wasn't the best at walking in heels."
