Selena Gomez has been announced as the host of the MTV Video Music Awards pre-show, meaning virtually all we don’t know is who’s hosting the actual ceremony.
The Disney Channel star will emcee MTV’s traditional “black carpet” extravaganza at 8 p.m. ET on Aug. 28, which will feature a performance by the band Cobra Starship.
“I am very excited to be a part of the 2011 VMA’s,” said Gomez. “After all of my years watching the VMA’s, the pre-show has always been one of my favorite parts. It is a true honor to be hosting from the black carpet this year.”
As for the non-pre-show, Lady Gaga will kick things off, with Chris Brown, Adele and Bruno Mars also slated to perform.
