Lilly Singh and I are crammed into a small dressing room at the West Hollywood soundstage of NBC’s A Little Late With Lilly Singh, where the newly minted late-night host is pitching me on the benefits of practical footwear. “Everything about me changes when I’m wearing heels versus sneakers,” she explains, pulling out a pair of Air Jordans that she recently paired with a powder-blue pantsuit, one of her favorite looks from the first few weeks of her new talk show. This afternoon, the 31-year-old Canadian is dressed in head-to-toe blue camo and white Nikes, and she carries herself with a loose, tomboyish stride — an energy that is offset by her curlicue lashes and shiny curtain of mermaid hair. She comes equipped with a tote-bag’s worth of spare vowels ready to throw into conversation at any moment, turning true into truuuuuuuuuuuue and yes into yaaaaaaasssss. “Like, in heels I’m a little bit more like this”— she says, drawing herself tall and placing her hands by her sides, like a drill sergeant. “And in sneakers I have more swaaaaaaaag, I have more fun, I run through the audience, I’m a little bit more myself,” she adds, crisscrossing her arms and bouncing up and down slightly, as if she’s perched on an invisible trampoline.

Singh leads me onto the main set, which features a cutout of Toronto’s CN Tower in the background, pictures of her favorite things on her desk (her dog, Scarborough, named after the Toronto suburb she grew up in; a carton of French fries), and a lucky loonie (Canadian dollar) coin hidden under her round throw rug. Filling one’s set with personal effects is part of the late-night ritual, but for Singh, it’s hard to tell where decoration ends and superstition begins. “I feel like me and the universe are really like THIS,” she explains, raising a hand to reveal one of her matching wrist tattoos (which read “Without Fear” and “Without Hate” in Gurmukhi) and crossing her fingers. “I’m on my third vision board, and most of the things on my vision boards come true,” she says. Some of the photos on her current vision board that came to life: Nicki Minaj (“I met her at the Met Gala a few months after that”), the Grammys (“I took over Alicia Keys’s social media backstage at the show”), and herself as a guest on a talk show … any talk show.  “And now I sit in the other seat,” she says, grinning.
