Phil and Claire Dunphy are set to steal the show at this year’s Billboard Music Awards.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Modern Family stars Ty Burrell and Julie Bowen, the actor and actress behind TV’s most hilarious on-screen couple, have been tapped to host the event, which will also feature performances by Carrie Underwood and Justin Bieber.

Richard Beckman, the CEO of Prometheus Global Media, made the announcement: “We are thrilled to have television’s favorite Emmy Award winning couple as our hosts for this year’s Billboard Music Awards. Ty and Julie have captured the hearts of America with their on-screen chemistry and humor — and we look forward to having them bring that magic to the Billboard Music Awards.”

OK, we not-so-secretly hope that Ty tries to duet with Justin Bieber when the show airs live from Vegas on Sunday, May 20 at 8 p.m. on ABC. It’s what a “cool” dad would do — right, Phil?
