Cardi will hold down the 2021 American Music Awards (AMAs) live from the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles on Sunday, Nov. 21, at 8:00 p.m. EST/PST on ABC and streaming next day on Hulu. For the first time ever, the rapper will take the stage in her hosting debut to usher in music’s hottest night of the year.

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

“We are immensely excited to have the dynamic Cardi B bring her infectious energy to the American Music Awards as a first-time host,” said executive producer Jesse Collins, also via statement. “She will excite the viewers, push the limits and deliver a show that will be remembered forever!”

Cardi B is a five-time American Music Awards winner and she’s also previously graced the stage at the show to perform “I Like It” in 2018 with J Balvin and Bad Bunny. Cardi previously made history during her last AMAs appearance, becoming the first female rapper to win Favorite Hip-Hop Song twice.

As for her host role, Cardi is in great company — previous global superstar hosts of the AMAs include Jennifer Lopez, Eddie Murphy, Jimmy Kimmel, Britney Spears, LL Cool J, Aretha Franklin, Diana Ross, Tracee Ellis Ross, Lionel Richie, and last year’s host Taraji P. Henson.

The AMAs are the world’s largest fan-voted awards show, and are set to air globally across a footprint of linear and digital platforms in over 120 countries and territories.

Olivia Rodrigo is a frontrunner at this years AMAs, making her debut at the show with a whopping seven nominations, including Artist of the Year and New Artist of the Year. The Weeknd, who has six nominations, is a five-time AMA winner and will be one of Rodrigo’s challengers in the Artist of the Year category, as well as Favorite Music Video and Favorite Pop Song.

Other top nominees include Bad Bunny, Doja Cat and Giveon, who all received five nods for this year’s show. Bad Bunny dominates the Latin categories this year, including a double nomination for Favorite Latin Album. Doja Cat, who was 2020’s AMA New Artist of the Year, is up for awards in the Favorite Female R&B Artist and Favorite R&B Album categories, among others. This will also be Giveon’s debut AMAs. His nominations include New Artist of the Year, Favorite Male R&B Artist, and Collaboration of the Year alongside Justin Bieber for “Peaches.” The biggest battle of the night will be in the Artist of the Year category where Ariana Grande, BTS, Drake, Olivia Rodrigo, Taylor Swift and The Weeknd are all contending for the award. Taylor Swift currently holds the record for most wins in the Artist of the Year category with six wins. She’s also the recordholder for the most AMA wins of all time, with 32.

This year’s AMAs feature several new categories including Favorite Trending Song, with nominees from TikTok on the year’s most viral songs, Favorite Gospel Artist, and Favorite Latin Duo or Group, which rounds out last year’s expansion of the Latin categories bringing the total to five in the genre.
