Earlier this month, Taraji P. Henson was confirmed to host the fan-voted ceremony. “The AMAs bring together the music community to celebrate what really drives all artists – the fans,” the Hidden Figures actress, 50, said in a press release. “I’m proud to take the stage as this year’s host — and also a fan — for what promises to be an electrifying night of music.”

The What Men Want star also shared her excitement for her new gig via Instagram. “I’m thrilled to announce that I’ll be hosting the 2020 @AMAs! It’s going to be an electrifying night of music,” she wrote on November 2, adding that “WE GON HAVE SOME FUN!!! 🙌🏾 🙏🏾💋💋💋.”

For the 2019 event, Ciara was recruited to host the show. Swift led the night with an impressive six wins, including Artist of the Decade. She ultimately broke the record for the most wins ever from an AMA nominee, a record that was previously held by Michael Jackson. The “Cardigan” singer, 30, additionally put on a medley performance of her biggest hits over the years.

Christina Aguilera, Camila Cabello, Jonas Brothers and Travis Scott were also among the night’s performers in 2019.
