Ryan Seacrest will host 'Fashion Rocks'.

The charity event - which will be attended by an impressive array of celebrities - combines the world of fashion with musical performances and will broadcast on US TV network CBS for the first time since 2008.

The 'American Idol' presenter can't wait to get on stage at Brooklyn's Barclays Center on September 9 for the event.

He said: '' I'm always excited to be a part of live events, and Fashion Rocks combines three of my favourite things - music, fashion and New York City.''

Ryan added that he was determined to ''make it an amazing and memorable night''.

A huge string of diverse musical performers have already been confirmed for the two-hour extravaganza, including Jennifer Lopez, KISS, Pitbull, The Band Perry, Duran Duran, Afrojack, Miranda Lambert, Rita Ora, and Usher.

Richard Beckman, Executive Producer for Fashion Rocks said: ''Fashion Rocks is the only show that celebrates the inextricable link between fashion and music, a relationship that is more relevant today than ever before.

''For the first time we'll air the event live during Fashion Week from Barclays Center. It will be a spectacular affair, featuring some of the world's most talented musicians as well as today's hottest fashions.''

'Fashion Rocks' is to air on CBS on September 9, while tickets for the event will go on sale August 1.
