Kelly Clarkson has plenty of jobs these days, between her self-titled talk show, her coaching gig on The Voice, and her ongoing music career. But that hasn’t stopped her from adding one more to her list.

On Tuesday, Clarkson was announced as the host for the upcoming 2020 Billboard Music Awards, set for this April.

It’ll be the third year in a row that Clarkson has hosted the show, and also the third year in a row that the BBMAs will air on NBC.

Over the years, she’s won acclaim from fans for opening the show with a medley of hits from the nominated artists of the year.

“I genuinely love music, and I love artists,” she told PEOPLE back in 2019, ahead of her second time up as the host. “I think a lot of people feel like they maybe have to play a role in that scenario, but I don’t. I am a super big fan of a lot of people.”

Clarkson’s also a natural, charismatic host who isn’t afraid to get goofy in front of the camera — something she honed in long before getting her own talk show,

“Because my whole career started on live, national television, I think I have an odd sense of being comfortable in that environment,” said Clarkson, who was American Idol‘s first winner in 2002. “That probably says something psychologically about me, but I think because of how I came in the industry nothing really throws me, generally. I should really knock on some wood.”
