Your move, Lady Gaga.
After seeing the last two rounds of hosting duties go to Russell Brand and Chelsea Handler, MTV has opted to not have a host for its 2011 Video Music Awards.
Perhaps this was because Gaga upstaged everyone with her meat dress? Hey, you never know.
Before officially making the announcement, Amy Doyle, the awards show's executive producer, spoke to Billboard and skirted their question about whether or not there would be a host this year. She told the mag:
- "It's going down to the wire. Hosting is such a unique element. We feel we got it right by putting new talent on the stage like Chelsea and Russell. We're really challenging ourselves to find the right person so that the show feels complete."
So the right person is no person at all!
It looks like the awards show will be focusing on the one thing it should be worried about - music. MTV just announced that Beyoncé will be performing at the show, which airs this Sunday, August 28. B has three nods this year, including Best Female Video.
Previous announced performers include Lady Gaga, Adele, Bruno Mars, Lil Wayne, Chris Brown, Young the Giant, Pitbull and Ne-Yo, with Jessie J as the house artist during the show.
And the massive VMA pre-show will have as many big names as the main ceremony! Hosted by Selena Gomez, the one-hour fěte will feature the premiere of Nicki Minaj and Rihanna's duet "Fly" (Rihanna Tweeted the above pic as a teaser back in January) and Cobra Starship's performance of their song "You Make Me Feel,â€ featuring Sabi.
The 2011 MTV Video Music Awards will air live from Los Angeles' Nokia Theater at 9 p.m. ET/PT Sunday, August 28.
