Gigi Hadid hosting the 2016 IHEARTRADIO MMVAs

Following in the footsteps of close friends Kendall and Kylie Jenner, Gigi Hadid is ready to take her turn as host of the IHEARTRADIO MMVAs. This year's music extravaganza will invade the streets of downtown Toronto on June 19. The stunning supermodel is no stranger to the MMVAs stage, having been a presenter at the show in 2015.

"I’m so excited and honoured to be hosting the 2016 IHEARTRADIO MMVAs!" said the 21-year-old in a statement, adding, "There’s a lot of fun entertainment in store for the evening and I can’t wait to share these moments with the fans!”

Gigi presented an award at last year's show, which was hosted by Ed Sheeran.

Now with Gigi at the reins, this year's bash is shaping up to be a night to remember. Previously announced performers include MMVAs veteran Nick Jonas, Macklemore and Ryan Lewis and Canadian darling Alessia Cara, who is fresh off of a Breakthrough Artist of the Year win at the 2016 Junos. The lineup is expected to grow in the coming weeks.

All eyes will be on Gigi to see if she brings her singer boyfriend Zayn Malik as her date to the show. The two lovebirds have been inseparable since rumours of their romance kicked into high gear in Aug. 2015.

The duo publicly confirmed their relationship after Gigi starred opposite her beau in the sexy music video for his debut single 'Pillowtalk.' Most recently, the two joined forces in a steamy editorial in the pages of Vogue and the former One Direction member was by Gigi's side when she celebrated her milestone 21st birthday on Apr. 23.
