Kristen Bell announced on Twitter this afternoon that she will return as host of the CMT Music Awards, which will air on June 5.
Bell hosted the ceremony – which sometimes gets lost amongst the bigger awards shows like the CMAs and the ACMs – last year with Toby Keith. The pair had minimal chemistry on stage; I wasn’t a fan of their lame jokes. This year, Bell says she’ll be joined by a new co-host, but CMT hasn’t announced which star will be filling Toby’s cowboy boots just yet.
Last year’s CMT Music Awards garnered 2.9 million viewers and a 1.1 rating on CMT.
