The 45-year-old actress kept it casual for rehearsals, wearing a loose sweater over form-fitting black pants and silver stilettos.

Her hair braided up, and sporting natural makeup, the Black-ish star is not all work and no play. As the videos suggest, Ross is enjoying every minute of her gig as host of the awards show.

On Twitter, the actress shared the most important reason why you should watch tonight’s show: “Because I am hosting,” Ross said to her fans.

Tonight’s AMAs conclude a busy week for Ross as she has been promoting the award show.

On Friday, she shared a video practicing her fierce dance moves in a white jumpsuit at the Microsoft Theater.
