Sean “Diddy” Combs will host and executive produce the 2022 Billboard Music Awards, 25 years after the legendary music mogul/producer/rapper won his maiden BBMA in 1997 for his multi-platinum album No Way Out.
“This will be unlike any awards show – I’m bringing the love and setting the frequency at an all-time high,” Combs said in a statement. “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,” he told Billboard.
This year’s Billboard Music Awards show will be held on May 15 at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas.
The event will be aired live from at 8 p.m. ET on NBC; it will also stream on the Peacock service.
Mary J. Blige will be honored with the Icon Award at the 2022 BBMAs.
