Tracee Ellis Ross to host the 2017 American Music Awards

Tracee Ellis Ross has been selected as the host of the upcoming 2017 American Music Awards. While this isn't Ross's first hosting gig (she hosted the BET Awards in 2015 and 2016), it will probably be her most memorable, considering her mother, Diana Ross, is set to receive the Lifetime Achievement Award. The ceremony will air live from LA's Microsoft Theater this Sunday, November 19 on ABC.

The "black-ish" actress says she's excited to be named the host but is "especially thrilled" to do it the year that her mother is getting the Lifetime Achievement award. She said, "I am thrilled to host this special night which honors some of the greatest musical talents in our industry".

Performers at Sunday's event in Los Angeles include Kelly Clarkson, Selena Gomez, Demi Lovato and Niall Horan.

Diana Ross will not only be honored but will also take the stage to perform.

The 2017 American Music Awards is produced by dick clark productions.
