Queen Latifah To Host NAACP Image Awards

The NAACP Image Awards are officially getting the Queen Latifah treatment. The Emmy, Grammy, Golden Globe, and NAACP Image Award-winning actress, rapper, and singer is set to host this weekend’s upcoming awards show.

The “54th NAACP Image Awards” will air on Feb. 25 from the Pasadena Civic Auditorium in Pasadena, California. Now BET and the NAACP has announced the “U.N.I.T.Y.” singer as host of the show.

“It’s an honor to host the 54th NAACP Image Awards, especially in the year we are celebrating 50 years of hip-hop,” Latifah said. “This is a night to celebrate Black excellence and the Black contribution to our industry and beyond. Celebrating one another, lifting each other up and you know we’ll have fun doing it!”

Kerry Washington, Taye Diggs, Jonathan Majors, Zendaya, and Janelle Monae will also appear at this year’s ceremony.
