The first time Foxx hosted was in 2009, days after Michael Jackson unexpectedly passed away. The show doubled as an all-star tribute to the late King of Pop. Last year’s show was hosted by Saturday Night Live‘s Leslie Jones and was filled with memorable moments from Bruno Mars, Mary J. Blige, Migos and New Edition, who were bestowed the lifetime achievement award.
