Tracy Morgan to host Billboard awards

Tracy Morgan will host the 2013 Billboard Music Awards.

The '30 Rock' star and comedian has been chosen to entertain the crowds at the star-studded ceremony in Las Vegas on Sunday, May 19.

The former 'Saturday Night Live' star admitted he can't wait for the red carpet event, saying: "I'm honored to be a part of one of music's biggest nights.

"When you look at the artists who have come up through Billboard over the years, it's incredible. And how can you say no when Prince is going to be there!"

The awards show will honor the 'Purple Rain' singer with the Billboard Icon Award, highlighting his groundbreaking accomplishments in the music industry during the broadcast, to be executive produced by Don Mischer.

The 54-year-old singer will also perform at the event next month.

Other confirmed performers include Taylor Swift, Justin Bieber, Bruno Mars and Miguel.

'Modern Family' stars Julie Bowen and Ty Burrell co-hosted the awards show last year.
