Tracee Ellis Ross to Return as American Music Awards Host


The 2018 show will broadcast live on ABC on Oct. 9.

If you thought last year's American Music Awards were hilarious, you're in luck: Tracee Ellis Ross is coming back for a second year as the awards show's host. The black-ish star will return as the night's emcee as well as an executive producer for the 2018 American Music Awards, which will broadcast live from the Microst Theater in Los Angeles on Oct. 9.

"SO NICE, I’M DOING IT TWICE," Ross captioned an Instagram post revealing the news, which reminds fans just how sassy and silly — and fashionable — she was on last year's show.

Ross' role as host at the 2017 AMAs made the show a family affair, as her mother, Diana Ross, received the lifetime achievement award. Though the same kind family ties aren't happening this year, Ross' hosting gig is still timely: The fifth season  black-ish premieres a week after this year's American Music Awards on Oct. 16.​

Nominations for the 2018 American Music Awards are set to be announced on Sept. 12, with Kane Brown, Ella Mai, Normani and Bebe Rexha unveiling the list live from YouTube Space LA in Los Angeles. The 2018 AMAs air Oct. 9 at 8:00 p.m. ET on ABC.
