She said: “I’m thrilled to be back with my Billboard family.

“I love being part of an event that celebrates our greatest artistes and entertains our fans. This is a night of music that you won’t want to miss!”

In 2019, the 37-year-old singer kicked off the show with a musical medley of the year’s biggest hits.

The Behind These Hazel Eyes hitmaker walked through the audience, taking a seat next to actor Terry Crews and discussed Taylor Swift and Brandon Urie’s show-opening performance of Me!

Throughout the night, she also entertained the audience in song, dance and a bit of humour.
