Saturday Night Live and 30 Rock alum Tracy Morgan will host the 2013 Billboard Music Awards. Given his raunchy brand of stand-up comedy, it should be quite a night. The live show, from Las Vegas, will air May 19 at 8 p.m. ET on ABC.

“When you look at the artists who have come up through Billboard over the years, it’s incredible,” Morgan said in a statement. “And how can you say no when Prince is going to be there!”

Along with Prince, who is receiving the Billboard Icon Award, Taylor Swift, Justin Bieber, Bruno Mars, and Miguel are also all slated to perform.
