Sean ‘Puffy’ Combs To Produce + Host 2022 Billboard Music Awards: Look + Listen

Marking the 25th anniversary of his first Billboard Music Awards win in 1997, Sean ‘Diddy’ Combs has been tapped to host and executive produce the 2022 BBMAs.

In a statement about his upcoming emcee and production responsibilities, the superstar rapper stated:

“This will be unlike any awards show. I’m bringing the love and setting the frequency at an all-time high.” “The Billboard Music Awards truly represent the artists and where music is today, so I’m excited to curate the biggest live performances and surprises. The world has to tune in to see.”

Featuring a performance list line-up including Burna Boy, Latto, Megan Thee Stallion, Rauw Alejandro, Red Hot Chili Peppers and Mary J. Blige (the recipient of this year’s Icon Award), Diddy took to Instagram video saying:

“That means I’m the host with the most, I’m the executive producer that calls all the shots, that means I’m the ringmaster, (showman) P.T. Barnum-style. You know, ain’t no party like a Diddy party. We’re gonna come through with one of the most disruptive line-ups in music history with one of the most controversial hosts in music history – me!” 

The 2022 Billboard Music Awards will be broadcast live from the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas on 15 May.
