The 2022 Billboard Music Awards are back to celebrate the past year's top charting artists, airing on May 15 at 8 p.m. ET/5 p.m. PT on NBC. Sean "Diddy" Combs is hosting and executive producing the show from the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas.

This is Combs' first hosting gig since the 2005 MTV Video Music Awards and it also commemorates his first Billboard Music Award 25 years ago in 1997 for his multi-platinum album "No Way Out."

Earlier this year, the rapper presented at the Oscars after the infamous slap played out for a worldwide audience, telling Will Smith and Chris Rock to "solve it like family."
