Kelly Clarkson will return as the host of the 2020 Billboard Music Awards.
The 38-year-old vocalist has actually been the host of the yearly music awards event for the past 2 years, and it has actually now been validated she’ll return for the third consecutive event later this year.
NBC have also revealed the event – which was supposed to occur on April 29 but was delayed due to the pandemic – will be hosted live on October 14, 6 months after it was initially arranged.
As of the time of writing, no further details about the Billboard Music Awards – such as how the program will be formatted and what, if any, live entertainers will be at the event – are understood.
The change to the schedule comes as several award ceremonies have been forced to hold off or adjust their shows.
MTV’s Video Music Awards are set to occur later this month, but the network has ditched plans to host a live show in the Barclays Center in New York City, with the event now being held in numerous different areas around the city, with no live audience in attendance.
The Emmy Awards will likewise be proceeding this September, however the program will occur essentially with candidates and winners appearing through Zoom.
For Kelly, the role comes as she recently filled in to cover for Simon Cowell as a judge on ‘America’s Got Talent’, after he fell off an electrical bike and broke his back.
In a witty statement, Kelly said: ”My friend, Simon Cowell, is doing better now but was in an accident and won’t be able to make Tuesday and Wednesday’s live shows for ‘AGT’, but no worries America, someone far wiser, cooler, and hotter is taking his seat! The unbelievably amazing Kelly Clarkson. You’re welcome in advance!”
