Cardi B to host the 2021 American Music Awards


Cardi B is set to host the 2021 American Music Awards, airing later this month on ABC.

It marks the five-time AMA winner’s first time hosting the event. She previously took the AMAs stage to perform “I Like It” in 2018 with J Balvin and Bad Bunny. She’s also the first female rapper to win the AMA for Favorite Hip Hop Song twice.

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

The AMAs air live from the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles on Sunday, Nov. 21, at 8:00 p.m. ET/PT on ABC and will be streaming the next day on Hulu.
