Luda On Deck To Host 2024 iHeartRadio Music Awards.

Ludacris is set to take on hosting duties and perform at this year’s iHeartRadio Music Awards, and the rapper is now opening up ahead of the big night in an interview with Elvis Duran.

There’s no doubt Ludacris is ready to be the host of this year’s iHeartRadio Music Awards, as he explained, “I’m honored and it’s just definitely a pleasure. I can’t wait to do this, man. I’m excited. I haven’t hosted in a while. I wear many hats, and humbly speaking, I have not done the iHeart Awards yet, but hopefully this will be the first but not the last [time], because I plan to kill it.”

Being that the annual awards show includes some big names this year as Beyoncé is set to be honored with the iHeartRadio Innovator Award, while Cher will receive the Icon Award, Ludacris isn’t nervous at all. As he puts it, “I was born for this.”

And he really is! Elvis presented Luda with a number of scenarios where things can go wrong, and asked how he would handle as host. If the teleprompter malfunctions, “I’ll just start rapping the ‘Move’ beat acapella. That’s what I’ll do. I’ll start my performance early. We’ll figure it out for sure.”

The 12th annual iHeartRadio Music Awards, hosted by Ludacris, will feature award presentations in multiple categories, live performances from the biggest artists in music, surprise guests and collaborations and will showcase the stories of the winning artists’ road to #1. Artists receiving multiple nominations include, 21 Savage, Beyoncé, Billie Eilish, Blink-182, Carin León, David Kushner, Doechii, Doja Cat, Drake, Dua Lipa, Fall Out Boy, Foo Fighters, Grupo Frontera, Ice Spice, Jelly Roll, Jung Kook, Karol G, Lil Durk, Luke Combs, Megan Moroney, Metro Boomin, Miley Cyrus, Morgan Wallen, Noah Kahan, Olivia Rodrigo, Paramore, Peso Pluma, Rema, Selena Gomez, Shakira, SZA, Taylor Swift, The Weeknd, Tyla, Usher and Yng Lvcas.

And taking over the stage this year for some incredible performances are Justin Timberlake, Green Day, TLC, Jelly Roll, Lainey Wilson, Tate McRae and more. Plus, the show will feature a special musical tribute to the 2024 iHeartRadio Icon Award Recipient, Cher, while Beyoncé will be honored with this year’s iHeartRadio Innovator Award.
