Tracee Ellis Ross is once again taking the AMAs stage with style and grace.

On Wednesday, Dick Clark Productions announced the black-ish star, 45, will return to the 2018 American Music Awards for the second consecutive year as the night’s host, as well as an executive producer.

“SO NICE, I’M DOING IT TWICE,” Ross revealed in a post on her Instagram, highlighting her many fabulous outfit changes from last year’s show.

The 2017 AMAs were a Ross family affair, with the actress’ mother, Motown legend Diana Ross, taking to the stage for double duty. Not only did she perform, but the “Endless Love” singer also received the Lifetime Achievement Award with her entire family in tow — as well as longtime friends Smokey Robinson and Motown founder Berry Gordy.
