They’re gonna be having a real Keke at this year’s VMAs.
As in Keke Palmer.
The “Hustlers” actress-singer, 26, has been announced as the host of the 2020 MTV Video Music Awards, which will take place at Brooklyn’s Barclays Center on Aug. 30.
“We’re thrilled to have the multitalented Keke Palmer as this year’s ‘VMAs’ host,” said Bruce Gillmer, president of music, music talent, programming and events for ViacomCBS Media Networks, which operates MTV. “Keke is an energetic force and a quadruple threat with unmatched comedic wit who will make this year’s show truly unforgettable.”
The 37th annual VMAs will take the Moon Person into uncharted territory as the first major awards show to be held completely at a venue since the coronavirus pandemic began.
BTS, J Balvin and Doja Cat were the first performers announced. K-pop group BTS will make its debut VMAs performance, taking the stage to sing its new English-only single “Dynamite,” which will be released Aug. 31.
BTS is up for three VMAs (best pop, best K-pop and best choreography), as is Doja Cat (song of the year, PUSH best new artist and best direction), while J Balvin has four nominations (best collaboration and three nods for best Latin music video).
“Rain on Me” divas Lady Gaga and Ariana Grande lead the contenders with nine nominations each, followed by Billie Eilish and the Weeknd with six nods apiece.
And as this year’s host, Palmer, who turns 27 on Aug. 26, will have a birthday celebration to remember.
