The Talk has finally found someone to fill Aisha Tyler's big shoes.

On Tuesday's show, Eve Jeffers Cooper debuted as the new host, joining Julie Chen, Sara Gilbert, Sharon Osbourne, and Sheryl Underwood. Previously, Cooper, who goes by Eve, appeared on the show as a guest co-host the week of Oct. 30.

"We are thrilled to welcome Eve to the table as she brings a fun and fresh perspective to our already diverse panel," said Angelica McDaniel, CBS' executive VP of daytime, in a statement. "The great success of The Talk is due to the undeniable chemistry and bond of friendship between the hosts. Eve is an accomplished and dynamic performer, musician, wife, and stepmother who fits in seamlessly, while also adding a new layer to the show as we continue to evolve season to season." <iframe width="560" height="315" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen="" src=";uiwm=cbs" class="" scrolling="no" resize="0" replace_attributes="1" name=""></iframe>

Eve is best known for hits "What Ya Want," "Gangsta Lovin," and "Let Me Blow Ya Mind" with Gwen Stefani, which won the inaugural Grammy Award for Best Rap/Sung Collaboration in 2002. Last year, she reunited with Stefani for the "This Is What the Truth Feels Like" tour.

In June, Tyler announced she was leaving The Talk after six years to focus on acting. She is as a series regular on Criminal Minds, hosts The CW's Whose Line Is It Anyway?, and does voiceover work for FX's Archer.
