Ciara to Host the 2016 Billboard Awards with Ludacris
We have some good news for all you Ciara fans out there, your girl is set to host this year’s Billboard Music Awards when it airs live from the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas on May 22.
Ciara will co-host alongside rapper Ludacris, who’s returning for the third year in a row. In a statement released via his Facebook page, Luda called Ciara a “longtime friend,” and said he’s honored to be sharing this year’s hosting duties with her.
Likewise, Ciara released a statement as well, saying she looks forward to making this year’s show “a night to remember.”
Last year’s Billboard Awards reached a 14-year high of 11.1 million viewers and secured a 3.7 demo for ABC. The show will air on the alphabet network again this year, and has already secured performances from Taylor Swift and Zayn Malik.
No word whether Ciara will perform, but it would be huge boost if she does. This year’s nominees have not been announced yet, but Ciara did top the charts last year with her platinum-selling hit, I Bet.
