Comedienne Chelsea Handler of her own show Chelsea Lately will emcee the MTV VMA awards this year, broadcast live from Los Angeles on September 12.
Handler, 35, replaces English comic/actor Russell Brand. Handler joked on tonight's 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 them."
We just luuuuv Chelsea so we're super excited to see how she does. X17's #1 Chelsea fan will be live-blogging the show so tune in to X17online to follow the show live!
Do you think Chelsea is good replacement for Russell? Do you think she'll do a better job?
