The former “SNL” star was announced as host by MTV on Wednesday. The awards will air on 16 May.
Jones has been nominated for Best Comedy Acting for her role in “Cumming 2 America”.
Previous hosts of the show include Tiffany Haddish, Kevin Hart, Adam Devine and Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson.
One great thing about this show is that fans decide who to take home.
Jones previously hosted the BET Awards in 2017.
