Miley Cyrus to Host MTV’s 2015 VMAs

Get ready: Miley Cyrus is returning to the VMAs, and not just as a performer this time.

The pop star is set to host MTV’s Video Music Awards, airing next month. Cyrus announced the news Monday with a playful tweet, joking that MTV won’t let her perform, so she’s taking on a different role.

MTV also confirmed the news on its Twitter. The VMA nominations will be released on Tuesday.

Cyrus made serious waves in her 2013 appearance on the annual music awards show, in which she twerked against Robin Thicke and waved around a giant foam finger during their performance of “We Can’t Stop” and “Blurred Lines.” She returned to the show last year, when she offered her award for video of the year for “Wrecking Ball” to her homeless date, Jesse Helt.

Past VMA hosts have typically been comedians rather than musicians, including Kevin Hart, Chelsea Handler and Russell Brand. The event had no host last year.

The 2015 VMAs will air at 9 p.m. ET Aug. 30 on MTV.
