Last year, MTV hosted the Video Music Awards in its birth place, New York City. But this year, it's time for a change of scenery, and the VMAs will take it to the West Coast when the show airs live from Los Angeles on September 12.
And after 27 years, you know that when you tune in, you'll be treated to an unforgettable awards ceremony starring the biggest A-list presenters and rockin' performances from your favorite artists, plus plenty of Moonmen to give away.
So who's going to take us on an unforgettable ride through this star-studded night? Comedienne Chelsea Handler is confirmed to host the 2010 VMAs! Don't worry, she's no stranger to hosting TV programs - she's been the wisecracking anchor on her late-night show "Chelsea Lately" since 2007. Known for her tongue-in-cheek commentary, Chelsea's honest and witty banter won her the honor of being the second woman to grace the VMA stage as a solitary host, followed by Roseanne Barr in 1994. Whew, it's a been awhile. Let's hear it for the girls!
