Wendy Williams will host the 2014 Soul Train Awards in November, Centric told The Huffington Post on Monday.
The awards show, to be held on Nov. 7 at the Orleans Arena in Las Vegas, honors R&B and soul music's newest stars and most legendary names. The show promises to "engage fans with unforgettable performances, iconic tributes and special appearances by today’s leading musicians."
Williams' role comes just one year after her successful run as the host of the 2013 red carpet show, according to the press release.
"No stranger to entertaining, Williams brings her signature charm and quick wit," Centric said.
This will be Williams' first time hosting an awards show. Calling her the "queen of daytime talk," Centric assured that this year's show will be "one for the books."
The talk show host expressed her absolute excitement on Monday:
"As a longtime lover of R&B and Hip Hop, I am beyond excited to host this year's Soul Train Awards on Centric," she said. "It is an honor to be a part of the biggest night in music and highlight the achievements of both legends and rising talent."
She added: "Vegas, how you doin'?"
