After a long run on ABC, the Billboard Music Awards ceremony relocates to NBC this year.

Fittingly, a member of the NBC family will be handling hosting duties.

Kelly Clarkson, who currently appears as a coach on NBC’s “The Voice,” is set for the hosting role.

“To prepare for hosting the ‘Billboard Music Awards,’ I already have 20 costume changes planned,” says Clarkson. “I will be flying in like my girl P!nk, and calling Amy Schumer and Sarah Silverman for jokes. Well, or I’m just gonna show up and celebrate my favorite artists and get to know a few more. Yeah, maybe I’ll go with that plan.”

Emanating from the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, the 2018 BBMAs ceremony will air from 8PM-11PM ET / 5-8PM PT on May 20.
