by ali hoffman

Got plans tonight? You should probably cancel them.

Unless, of course, your plans included getting a group of your friends together and watching the premiere of America's Next Top Model Cycle 19. In which case, definitely don't cancel.

As we already shared with you

, this season ANTM's making major changes: The girls are all college students, viewers get to vote and, oh yeah, the winner will get a spread in NYLON Magazine and on NYLON TV!!!!

And, as uncovered by Wendy Douglas in our September issue, Tyra is pretty stoked to have us onboard.  "It's a really good match because I think NYLON is all about atypical beauty...not the cookie cutter," Banks explains. "There's an aspirational, cool, realness that I really like."

Watch the premiere tonight @  8pm ET on the CW!
