Ciara is no stranger to Billboard's Women in Music event. Back in 2008, the singer was crowned "Woman of the Year" and she was back this year to host the show.
Before assuming her role as emcee, she talked to Billboard's Chelsea Briggs and Keith Caulfield on the red carpet about celebrating all of the women in the industry.
"It's incredible to have the experience from both perspectives," she says of previously being honored and now hosting. "Receiving the award is a very incredible feeling. Now, being here to celebrate the women is exciting. There are so many amazing women in the house tonight. It's really us coming together -- we're all sisters. It's exciting to celebrate us tonight.
