MTV has tapped LL Cool J to be apart of the hosting duties for the 2022 Video Music Awards!!
“The 2022 VMAs will be a night of exciting moments and major performances and with such a night comes a need for someone to help usher in all those big events. Luckily this year, the show boasts three such talents. LL Cool J, Nicki Minaj, and Jack Harlow will all be on hand to emcee the VMAs and announce the biggest moments of the night.
The Vanguard Award is presented to artists for their outstanding contributions and profound impact on music video and popular culture. Minaj’s co-emcee, LL Cool J, is a previous recipient of the award, taking it home in 1997 as the first rapper to ever receive the honor. He first performed at the ceremony in 1991, then again in 1996 and appeared as a presenter in 2000.
This year’s show will return to New Jersey’s Prudential Center in Newark on Sunday, August 28. The ceremony previously hit the Garden State in 2019, hosted by Sebastian Maniscalco.”
Congratulations and we will be watching!
