Here’s T-Pain’s announcement from his Instagram:
Hosting the awards show marks yet another step in T-Pain’s amazing redemption tour. Since winning The Masked Singer, he has already dropped a new album, featuring collaborations with Lil Wayne, Tory Lanez, and more. And he continues to make press appearances all over the media, from Ellen to Extra to ET.
As the Monster, T-Pain beat out singers like Gladys Knight, Donny Osmond, Joey Fatone, and Rumer Willis on The Masked Singer. This was a big win for the singer, who hasn’t had a song on the charts since the late 2000’s. But a decade ago, he was winning Grammys for his singing and production. Now, it seems like he’s back for a second chance at fame, this time on his own terms.
You can watch him host live in person (tickets available online) or on your TV at home. The iHeartRadio Music Awards will take place at the Microsoft Theater in LA. The awards show airs on FOX at 8/7 Cental on Thursday, March 14th.
