The queen has arrived! Kelly Clarkson arrived to the 2019 Billboard Music Awards at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas looking absolutely stunning.
Then again, what else would you expect from the original American Idol winner?
Not only is the 37-year-old performing at the star-studded event, but she is pulling double duty by hosting as well! There’s no doubt that Kelly’s husband, Brandon Blackstock, will be cheering her on during the show. Plus, don’t forget that she has a two-person cheer squad consisting of her daughters River Rose, 4, and Remington Alexander, 3.
The “Piece By Piece” singer playing such an integral part in the festivities shouldn’t come as a surprise for fans. Why? Well because The Voice judge hosted last year, too. Clearly everyone loved having her there and decided to keep the magic alive once more.
“I had so much fun hosting the Billboard Music Awards last year that I’m back for more,” Kelly said when she announced her big return. “We’re turning it up a notch this year and I can’t wait to celebrate all of my fellow amazing artists for another unforgettable night of live music.”
You may be surprised to learn Kelly has never won a Billboard Music Award in her career. In fact, she has only garnered five nominations — all back in 2005. Don’t worry, though, because Kelly has very deservedly amassed three Grammy Awards among countless other accolades.
Don’t forget to tune into the show to see how Kelly does as host — and performer — during the show. It airs live beginning at 8 p.m. ET on NBC!
