Get ready for a night of raw, sarcastic hilarity for the 2010 MTV Video Music Awards with E!‘s late night talk hostess Chelsea Handler taking the reigns as the second only solo female host of the award show. Plus more A-list performers are being added to the already impressive lineup that includes [lastfm]Kanye West[/lastfm] and [lastfm]Drake[/lastfm].
Brutally honest comedy talk show host, Chelsea Handler, was passed down the VMA hosting torch from past hosting greats like Eddie Murphy, Arsenio Hall, Russell Brand and the only other female host, Rosanne Barr. I just hope she can focus knowing that her not-so-secret admirer, [lastfm]Justin Bieber[/lastfm], is in the audience, we can cut that romantic tension with a knife.
Speaking of J. Biebs, the teen heart-throb has been added to the list of performers along with [lastfm]B.o.B.[/lastfm], [lastfm]Kanye West[/lastfm], [lastfm]Drake[/lastfm] and [lastfm]Florence + The Machine[/lastfm]. Presenters for the night so far includes [lastfm]Ke$ha[/lastfm], [lastfm]Nicki Minaj[/lastfm], Ashley Greene and [lastfm]Ne-Yo[/lastfm] with more celebs being added to the roster as the award show draws closer.
We can expect a sassy, no-limits attitude the funny women is known and celebrated for, with the censors on their toes the whole show. “Everyone knows that when you think of rap music and hip-hop you think of ‘Chelsea Lately.’ And that’s why I will be hosting [the show],” Handler joked while making the announcement on her show Wednesday.
The 2010 MTV Video Music Awards airs on September 12 at 8 p.m. and don’t forget to head over to VMA.MTV.com to cast your vote for this year’s nominees! And let’s not forget that time when [lastfm]Justin Bieber[/lastfm] tried to make his move on the talk show host…hope it’s not awkward when it’s showtime!
