The supermodel, who presented last year, will lead Canada's TV street party June 19 in Toronto.

Supermodel Gigi Hadid will host the 2016 Much Music Video Awards in June; last year, she appeared as a presenter at Canada's TV street party.

The 21 year-old joins previously announced performers Alessia Cara, Macklemore & Ryan Lewis, and Nick Jonas. "There’s a lot of fun entertainment in store for the evening and I can’t wait to share these moments with the fans!" Hadid said Tuesday in a statement.

The MMVAs will be broadcast live in 4K as they air on Canada's Much and CTV channels, and stream on Much.com.

The event also will be a Canadian coming-out party for U.S.-based iHeartRadio, formerly known as Clear Channel, which recently signed an exclusive pact with Canadian broadcaster Bell Media to launch its brand in Canada by the summer.

Nominees and additional performers and presenters for the MMVAs will be announced in the coming weeks.
