Kelly Clarkson‘s new glam look is giving fans a reason to catch their breath!

From form-fitting disco jumpsuits to lace-embellished ball gowns and waist-cinching dresses, the singer-songwriter’s latest and greatest major fashion moments have proven that life is too short to wear boring clothes.

“I feel like it’s like the mom makeover on the Today show. I walk in and then I walk out and I’m like, ‘Damn!'” the Billboard Music Awards host joked to PEOPLE Thursday during the press day in Los Angeles ahead of Sunday’s show.

“I would love to take any credit for anything that’s happening with the glam squad, but my team is insane,” adds The Voice judge.

Sixteen years since first topping the charts after winning the inaugural season of American Idol, the “Piece By Piece” singer is gearing up for another milestone: her first-ever hosting gig, where the plan is to have “more than five, less than 10” looks.Check out PEOPLE’s full Billboard Music Awards coverage to get the latest news on music’s big night.

“I’m really excited to see Janet Jackson perform,” she says. “Since I was a kid I’ve wanted to see her, so this is pretty much a dream fulfilled. I’m also really excited to hear what Christina Aguilera and Demi Lovato‘s song [“Fall in Line“] sounds like because they’re such big vocalists. I’m a female vocalist, so I’ve always been impressed by female vocalists. I’m super excited about that.”

Clarkson admits that she’s suffering a case of pre-show jitters.

“I never get nervous singing, but I get nervous speaking in front of people,” she says. “I’m almost equally excited to say, ‘Thank you for watching!’ because that means it’s over and I nailed it or just succeeded and hopefully not failed.”

At least she’ll be able to take a short break from cracking jokes to do what she does best — belt a tune for all it’s worth.

“[The song is], obviously, off the new album,” she hints about what fans should expect from her performance. “We’re now in the age of streaming, so you want to show as much of your album as possible. It’s not always just about one song.”

The 2018 Billboard Music Awards will broadcast live from the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas on Sunday, May 20 on NBC.
