More like back for the third time, this year will mark Ludacris’ third year hosting the Billboard Music Awards. He’s extremely thrilled about it but this time he’s got a little help from ATL’s R&B singer, Ciara.

“It is my honor to host the Billboard Music Awards for the third year and a pleasure to host with my good friend Ciara,” he said in a statement. “I’m looking forward to another great show in a new and exciting venue.”

This year’s show will be held on May 22 at Las Vegas’T-Mobile Arena. Both celebrities are pretty excited about the experience as CiCi took to Twitter earlier this afternoon to announce the big news. These two have amazing chemistry music wise collaborating on tracks like “Oh” in 2004 and “Ride” in 2010; hosting an award show should be as fun to watch as the music they create together is to listen to.

“The Billboard Music Awards is one of best awards shows to honor chart success. My great friend Ludacris and I have also shared songs together on the Billboard chart,” said Ciara. “I look forward to sharing the stage with him on this special night. It will definitely be a night to remember!”

This year the show will air live at 8 p.m. EST/5 p.m. PST on ABC.
