Hip-hop star Ciara just 1, 2 stepped her way into a new high-profile gig.

The 30-year-old singer will be a judge on the Miss America beauty pageant in 2017,Entertainment Weekly is reporting.

The "1, 2 Step" artist joins a star-studded and eclectic panel that also includes Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban, fan-favorite Olympic gymnast Gabby Douglas, country star Cole Swindell and actresses Laura Marano and Sara Foster.

Likewise, she hosted the Billboard Music Awards alongside fellow hip-hop artist Ludacris in May, and she's worked with fashion brands such as Roberto Cavalli as well.

Her most recent album, "Jackie," dropped in 2015.

It's been a momentous year for the "Goodies" artist, as she married NFL star quarterback Russell Wilson in July.

The duo, who wed in London, originally planned to tie the knot in North Carolina but decided to move the wedding in response to the state's controversial LGBT bathroom laws, their wedding planner told The Knot this week.
