Earlier, speaking to Variety, he had expressed his excitement. "The thing that I love most about the BBMAs is that it's really artist-centric, and it feels like a great celebration of the past year in music. When they asked me to host this show, I was thrilled. I felt like it was sort of like completing my relationship with the show," he had said.
Meanwhile, Nick is currently in Los Angeles and Priyanka is in London for her professional commitments. She has been shooting for various projects over the last few several months. She is currently filming Citadel, the Amazon spy series.
