Wow! Nine-year-old Willow Smith‘s new music video for her hit song “Whip My Hair” is a major hit! “I love it,” Nick Cannon, 30, told HollyBaby.com on Oct. 20 as he was promoting the launch of DJ Hero 2 in NYC. “I think it’s awesome!”

That’s not all. The America’s Got Talent host thinks that Willow is going to be a huge star, just like her parents 42-year-old rapper/actor Will Smith and 39-year-old singer/actress Jada Pinkett Smith. “She definitely has talent,” he said. “I mean, her parents are phenomenal performers so she’s in good hands.”

Willow Smith is going to dress up as herself for Halloween!

And even though she’s so young, there’s no holding Willow back from achieving success. “It’s one of those things where, when someone has a passion and has a knack for the art form, it doesn’t matter how young they are, they’re going to do it regardless,” Nick explained. “It’s great that her parents are there to support her and guide her in the proper direction.”

Nick Cannon has big plans for his kids once he becomes a father!

That’s all great to hear. From one child star to another (Nick formed his first rap duo Da Bomb Squad as a teenager and even opened on tour for Willow’s dad, Will), Nick knows talent when he sees it.
