Pitbull is ready to show you he’s the host with the most…
The 32-year-old Cuban American rap/pop superstar has been named as the host of the 2013 American Music Awards.
Pitbull will also perform his new single “Timber” alongside Ke$ha at the ceremony, which will be held at the Nokia Theatre in Los Angeles and be broadcast on ABC beginning at 8:00 pm ET.
“I am truly honored to be hosting the 2013 American Music Awards,” says Pitbull in a press statement. “The night is only about one thing fun! So buckle and get ready. Dále!”
Pitbull and Ke$ha join previously announced AMAs performers Miley Cyrus, Imagine Dragons, Macklemore & Ryan Lewis, Luke Bryan, Kendrick Lamar, Florida Georgia Line and One Direction.
The “Give Me Everything” singer will be the show’s first host since 2008.
On last week’s Billboard Hot 100 chart, “Timber” climbed 11 spots to a new peak at No. 35.
The collaboration between the recent touring partners follows Pitbull’s 2012 album Global Warming, which included the singles “Don’t Stop The Party,” “Get It Started” and “Feel This Moment“; Pitbull performed the latter track alongside Christina Aguilera at the 2013 Billboard Music Awards last May.
