The American Music Awards will celebrate the best and most influential artists on Sunday night as voted by the fans. The AMA’s 45th annual event, to be held at the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles, will be hosted by Tracee Ellis Ross.

Ross shared on her Instagram page with fans how she is rehearsing for her big night, where her mother, Diana Ross, will be honored with a Lifetime Achievement award.


The 45-year-old actress kept it casual for rehearsals, wearing a loose sweater over form-fitting black pants and silver stilettos.

Her hair braided up, and sporting natural makeup, the Black-ish star is not all work and no play. As the videos suggest, Ross is enjoying every minute of her gig as host of the awards show.

On Twitter, the actress shared the most important reason why you should watch tonight’s show: “Because I am hosting,” Ross said to her fans.

Tonight’s AMAs conclude a busy week for Ross as she has been promoting the award show.

On Friday, she shared a video practicing her fierce dance moves in a white jumpsuit at the Microsoft Theater.


Thursday she visited Jimmy Kimmel Live and Good Morning America to talk surprises, and what she is most excited about for tonight’s show.


“There are some great powerhouse women performing, it’s the night and the year of the woman,” she said at GMA. “Powerful voices and powerful women.”

Lady Gaga, Pink, Kelly Clarskon, Christina Aguilera, and Selena Gomez are scheduled to perform.

“But if you’re gonna hang out for any performances, hang out for my mom’s,” she added.
