YouTube phenom and invisible horse rider PSY has been announced as this year’s MuchMusic Video Awards co-host. The “Gentleman” himself will also perform during Toronto’s largest block party, and it seems like he’s excited to take over the city on June 16.
"I'm looking forward to co-hosting and performing at the MuchMusic Video Awards,” the 35-year-old singer said in a statement. “And I’m looking forward to seeing all my fans in Canada!"
Executive producer Sheila Sullivan says that the “Gangnam Style” hitmaker will “bring the party” to the event. We assume PSY will share the hosting duties with the MuchMusic VJs like LMFAO did last year.
“His explosive energy and fun approach to music is a great fit for the MMVAs, and our audience,” Sullivan said. “With PSY fronting the show, the biggest street party in the world just got that much louder.”
Last week, Demi Lovato was revealed as the show’s first performer, and just like with the “X Factor” judge’s upcoming appearance, fans can vote on what PSY will sing at the MMVAs between “Gangnam Style,” “Gentleman,” a combination of the two or his next single.
We think that the MMVA stage is the perfect place for a performance of “Gentleman,” especially if it’s the remix, which PSY’s manager Scooter Braun began teasing us with on May 13.Read More »from PSY to co-host the 2013 MuchMusic Video Awards
