"I'm thrilled to be back with my Billboard family," Clarkson said. "I love being part of an event that celebrates our greatest artists and entertains our fans. This a night of music that you won't want to miss!"

Clarkson serves as a coach for season 18 of NBC's multi-Emmy Award-winning musical competition series "The Voice" and hosts her own daytime program, "The Kelly Clarkson Show," which was the fall season's #1 new syndicated show. She is among the most popular artists of this era with total worldwide sales of more than 25 million albums and 40 million singles.

Clarkson is the recipient of an array of awards, including three Grammy Awards, four American Music Awards, three MTV Video Music Awards, two Academy of Country Music Awards and one Country Music Assn. Award. She has notched three #1 songs on the Billboard Hot 100, among 11 top 10's and 27 total appearances.
