Actor and comedian Tracy Morgan will be hosting the upcoming Billboard Music Awards.

“I’m honored to be a part of one of music’s biggest nights,” Morgan said in a statement. “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!”

Prince will be honored at the ceremony with the Billboard Icon Award. The show will also include performances from Taylor Swift, Justin Bieber, Bruno Mars and Miguel.

The Billboard Music Awards reflect chart rankings, based on album sales, album downloads, track downloads, radio airplay, touring, streaming and online social interaction. The awards will represent a variety of genres, including pop, R&B, hip-hop, country, Latin, rock and Alternative.

The Billboard Music Awards will be taking place on Las Vegas on May 19. The show will air live on ABC.
