R&B superstar Doja Cat has been announced as the host of MTV‘s 2021 Video Music Awards ceremony.
“I’m hosting the 2021 #VMAs this year Wowowowowowow,” the “Say So” and “Kiss Me More” singer wrote on social media to announce her new gig.
Doja took home the coveted Best New Artist prize at the 2020 VMAs. This year, she’s up for five awards: Video of the Year, Artist of the Year, Best Collaboration, Best Art Direction, and Best Visual Effects.
In addition to her hosting duties, Doja will hit the VMA stage for an unforgettable performance.
The 2021 VMAs will air live on Sunday, September 12, at 8 p.m. ET/PT from Barclays Center in Brooklyn.
This year’s awards will debut a newly redesigned Moonperson statue from fine artist Kehinde Wiley. They will also honor the victims of the 9/11 attacks by collaborating with the nonprofit 9/11 Day on a series of events to promote awareness and positive action around the day’s 20th anniversary.
