Ludacris took the stage on May 18 in Las Vegas to host the 2014 Billboard Music Awards and he was awesome! He was exactly what we needed, do you agree?
Ludacris, 36, was the perfect Billboard Music Awards host! Not only is he a former Grammy winner, he didn’t try to make the entire show about him.
Ludacris — Best Billboard Awards Host Ever
The rapper turned actor managed to keep his cool and not miss a beat. He really made us all feel like we were really there, he was inviting and didn’t say one mean thing about anyone!
We thought he was awesome, what did you think?
Tracy Morgan Disses Taylor Swift At 2013 Billboard Music Awards
Tracy Morgan hosted in 2013 and he pulled the mean card all night long. He even opened the show by saying: “be careful of dating these girls, because they’ll write a song about you!” Then the camera panned to Taylor Swift!
Everyone was pretty shocked at how mean Tracy was and we’re so happy that Ludacris took a different approach.
There’s a time and place for everything when it comes to making fun of celebs but when it’s a night of honoring music and talent, the Billboard Awards just really isn’t the place.
Even when Mark Cuban hit the stage, he made fun of Jay Z and Solange‘s fight, and it really fell flat. People don’t really want to hear a bunch of disses at this show and that’s why Ludacris is the best host ever in my book!
Now we want to know what you thought of Ludacris as host! HollywoodLifers, did you think Ludacris was the best host ever?
