Chrissy Teigen and Ludacris will take the stage at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas on May 17th as hosts of the 2015 Billboard Music Awards. ABC and dick clark productions announced the date, time, and hosts for the event on Monday.

This is the second time hosting for Ludacris. Chrissy Teigen will no doubt add an element of sex appeal to this year's show.

"If my extensive collection of all 53 ‘Now That's What I Call Music' compilations is any indication, I am both qualified and honored to join Ludacris in hosting this amazing show that spotlights the best music and artists of the year," Chrissy Teigen said in a statement following the announcement.

"I had so much fun hosting the Billboard Music Awards last year and I can't wait to be back!" Ludacris said.

The finalists for the 2015 Billboard Music Awards will be announced on April 7th. The winners, however, won't be announced until May 17th at 8:00 PM ET on ABC.

Last year's winners included Justin Timberlake. The dad-to-be took home eight awards last year--one of which was for top artist. Robin Thicke and Pharrell Williams were big winners, too, for 'Blurred Lines,' the song that just cost them millions in court.

Chrissy Teigen is, of course, married to John Legend. He will likely be on hand to watch his wife co-host the awards show with Ludacris.

Will you be tuning in to the 2015 Billboard Music Awards in May? Who do you expect might be among some of the year's big winners? Sam Smith swept the Grammy Awards and did well at the iHeart Music Awards for this year, too. Do you think he will rake in some awards at the Billboard Music Awards, too?

Chriss Teigen and Ludacris have lots of fun ahead of them. In addition to hosting the 2015 Billboard Music Awards, they are in for a fabulous night of musical performances by some of the past year's finest performers.
