Cardi B has tried her hand at many things in life, but in less than three weeks, the world will see her take on another responsibility. On Tuesday (Nov. 2), the Invasion of Privacy star revealed that she will be the host of this year’s American Music Awards.

“I’m so proud to announce I’ll be hosting the 2021 @AMAs!” she wrote on social media of her role at this month’s award show.

“When I received the invite to host the AMAs, I was so excited,“ she added in a statement. “I’m ready to bring my personality to the AMAs stage! Thank you to Jesse Collins, ABC and MRC for making this happen.”

While the upcoming gig will mark Cardi B’s first time serving as a host of the ceremony, the Bronx native is no stranger to the AMAs. In 2018, the Grammy-award-winning rapper performed her hit song “I Like It” alongside collaborators J Balvin and Bad Bunny. She’s also received a slew of nominations, winning five AMAs and making history as the first female rapper to win Favorite Hip-Hop Song twice. This year, as she leads the event, the star is also up for three awards: Favorite Hip-Hop Artist and Favorite Hip-Hop Song and Video for “Up.”

The 2021 American Music Awards is slated to go down on Nov. 21 at 8 PM ET on ABC. Per executive producer Collins, the Fast and Furious 9 actress is sure to deliver a memorable show.

“We are immensely excited to have the dynamic Cardi B bring her infectious energy to the American Music Awards as a first-time host,” he said in a statement. “She will excite the viewers, push the limits and deliver a show that will be remembered forever!”

Congrats to Cardi B on another amazing opportunity! See her announcement below.
