The BET Awards have announced their host – and its a goodie.

Jamie Foxx will be the master of ceremonies at the BET Awards for the second time after first taking the helm in 2009.

The Ray actor is taking over from Saturday Night Live star Leslie Jones, who hosted last year.

The official BET Awards Twitter feed confirmed the news, tweeting: Have you heard?! The one and only @IAmJamieFoxx i will host the 2018 #BETAwards. Whos ready?!

We wonder if this means that Katie Holmes will be in the audience.

Jamie, 50, finally went public with Katie, 39, after four years together last September when they were pictured walking hand in hand on the beach.

It is believed that a clause in Katies divorce from Tom Cruise in 2012 meant she couldnt publicly date anyone for five years.
