Legendary music mogul/producer/rapper Sean “Diddy” Combs will host and executive produced the 2022 Billboard Music Awards.
The hosting duties for the Bad Boy boss comes exactly 25 years after Combs took home his first BBMA in 1997 for his multi-platinum No Way Out album.
“This will be unlike any awards show – I’m bringing the love and setting the frequency at an all-time high,” said two-time BBMA winner Combs in a statement about his run at producing the show, which the release promises will include a reimagining of the broadcast that will feature several surprises.
“The Billboard Music Awards truly represent the artists and where music is today, so I’m excited to curate the biggest live performances and surprises. The world has to tune in to see.”
The 2022 BBMAs will honor Mary J. Blige with the Icon Award, with Mary slated to perform on the broadcast along with Burna Boy, Latto, Megan Thee Stallion, Rauw Alejandro, the Red Hot Chili Peppers, and more artists set to be announced soon. Tickets to attend the show are open to the public and available here.
