As the 2015 American Music Awards quickly approach, the host for the big awards show has officially been announced. Drum roll please … The host for the this year’s AMAs will be Jennifer Lopez. That’s right folks, good ol’ Jlo.
ABC and Dick Clark Productions confirmed the news on Wednesday morning, explaining that the 46-year-old beauty is one of the “most influential artists in music history.”
It was also confirmed that the pop star, who received her first AMAs nomination in 2000, will perform during the awards show and will showcase material from her upcoming Las Vegas residency at Planet Hollywood Resort & Casino.
Jenny From the Block has performed at the annual awards show several times, including last year’s sexy performance of her hit “Booty” featuring Iggy Azalea.
Lopez, who will hit the stage for the first time ever to host an awards show, expressed her excitement via Twitter, writing:
With Lopez hosting, this means we can also expect multiple wardrobe changes … yes please … stellar hair and flawless makeup. Basically, the singer’s everyday norm.
The AMAs will air live November 22 on ABC from the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles.
