The ceremony was hosted by Sean “Diddy” Combs and French Montana.

According to an Instagram post shared by Diddy on Monday, he confesses that he got the job for Scott.

On the Billboard red carpet, the rapper was joined by his on-and-off girlfriend Kylie Jenner and their 4-year-old daughter Stormi. The couple once again became parents this time to a baby boy in February.

Meanwhile, Morgan Wallen also appeared for the first time after receiving backlash for a clip showing him yelling the N-word that went viral in 2021.
