Host of the 2021 MTV Video Music Awards Show: Doza Cat will preside over the show, which will air September 12 from the Barclays Center in Brooklyn.
This will be the singer’s first hosting gig at an awards show, but not his first trip to the VMA, last year he presented a medley of “She So” and “Like That” on the telecast. He won the Moon Person for Best New Artist in 2020.
This year, he will perform well as well as host, and take a shot while taking the podium when the winner will be announced in five categories, where he has been nominated, including Video of the Year and Artist of the Year.
Last year, VMAs were initially taped by Cake Palmer and hosted in an audience-free format, following plans to host the event at the Barclays Center. The makers have yet to announce any plans for a Barclays audience this year, or lack one.
Choosing Doza Kat as the host further indicates how much Sophomore is not suffering from jeans with her second album “Planet Her”. The collection has become the mainstay of the top ten in eight weeks. Moreover, she has two songs in the top ten singles – “Need to Know Yourself”, and “Kiss Me More”, featuring SZA.
Other artists announced so far for starring in the telecast include Foo Fighters, Shawn Mendes, Twenty-One Pilots, Chloe (her recent single-TV debut), Lil Nass X, Lord, Olivia Rodrigo, Machine Gun Kelly and Camilla Cabello.
The show will air on ET / PT on September 12 at 8 p.m. The top nominees are Justin Bieber with seven consents and Megan Thi Stallion with six. Doza Cat is involved with five more nominees: BTS, Billy Ilish, Givon, Drake, Lil Nass X and Rodrigo.
