The Video Music Award or in short the VMAs are presented every year to the best music videos of the year. The cable network channel MTV is the one who presents the award and this year too they are set up to present the award ceremony on 26th of August 2019.
The host for this year’s ceremony has already been decided, and on the Tuesday’s episode of The Tonight Show, it was revealed that comedian Sebastian Maniscalco will host the show.
Bruce Gillmer, the executive producer of MTV’s VMAs and also the co-brand head of MTV International, said in a statement about the matter, “We’re thrilled to have the incredibly talented Sebastian Maniscalco as this year’s VMA host. Sebastian is on FIRE right now, and his comedic spin on relatable topics will make this year’s show truly unforgettable.”
MTV’s VMA audience has witnessed some truly crazy things that happened on the stage over the years. Everyone still remembers the moment in 2009 when Taylor Swift won the best video of the year for her single You Belong with Me and was on the stage giving an acceptance speech, and she got interrupted by none other than Kanye West who grabbed her microphone and said,
“Yo Taylor, I’m really happy for you. Imma let you finish, but Beyonce had one of the best videos of all time.”
From Lady Gaga’s meat dress to Miley Cyrus and Nicky Minaj’s feud on the stage VMA almost every year has given the audience some crazy entertaining moments and it would be interesting to see what is on the course this year.
It seems like they have found the pretty appropriate person to host the show. Sebastian, apart from being an award-winning comedian, can be seen in a lot of movies, one of the movies he is a part of is the Oscar-winning movie ‘Green Book.’ He was also a part of other movies like The Irishman, TAG, The Nut Job 2: Nutty By Nature, Cruise, etc.
In the year 2018, he even won the comedian of the year named by the Billboard. He was also a part of the highest earning comedians for the years 2017 and 2018 and also was included in the Hollywood Reporters‘ this year’s edition of the Most Powerful People in Comedy.
Aside from all these, he also has successfully published his memoir Stay Hungry.
He for sure seem very excited to host the award show as can be seen by his Twitter post about the event.
