From silver screen debuts to primetime competition stages, Nick Cannon has proved that he can move a crowd. Tomorrow, the America’s Got Talent and Wild N Out host will showcase that skill as emcee for PEOPLE’s inaugural awards show.
“PEOPLE magazine has created an indelible imprint on pop culture and it is truly an honor for me to be asked to host their very first televised live awards ceremony,” Cannon said in a statement. “For the show to be broadcast on NBC makes it even more special for me.”
Among the performers are fellow NBC reality juggernauts Gwen Stefani, Pharrell Williams, and Adam Levine (with band Maroon 5). The ceremony, a Dick Clark production, will hand out accolades for the people that shaped pop culture in 2014, including the fan-voted Best PEOPLE Magazine Cover of the Year. For Cannon, it could be a stepping stone to a PEOPLE award of his own.
“Looking forward to an amazing night and hopefully this will launch a new category for PEOPLE to name me Sexiest Host Alive in 2015.”
