ABC confirmed the actress and the rapper will hit the stage together at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas to MC the big night, which will feature many of music's biggest names.

The show will mark Ludacris' fourth time hosting, so he'll definitely be able to hand over some tips for Hudgens, who will take the mic for the very first time.
