The 2013 Billboard Music Awards has just announced comedian Tracy Morgan as their host. The show will be airing live from Las Vegas at the MGM Grand on Sunday, May 19th via ABC.
The “SNL” / “30 Rock” actor is excited about his upcoming hosting duties: “I’m honored to be a part of one of music’s biggest nights,” Morgan said. “When you look at the artists who have come up through Billboard over the years, it’s incredible. And how can you say no when Prince is going to be there!”
As host of the awards, Morgan joins a lineup of performers that includes Justin Bieber, Miguel, Taylor Swift and Bruno Mars. The show will also include a highly anticipated performance by Prince, who is receiving the Billboard Icon Award at the telecast.
I suggest ABC have that censor button ready for pressing! Tracy doesn’t play when it comes to giving it to you straight raw. This is going to be must-see TV!
