Selena Gomez to host MTV's Pre-VMA Show, Cobra Starship to perform -- EXCLUSIVE

Jon Kopaloff/

Selena Gomez will be MTV’s celebrity host of their Pre-VMA Show, EW has learned exclusively.

The singer/actress will be on the award show’s black carpet live on Sunday, Aug. 28 starting at 8pm. “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.”

Additionally, Cobra Starship will perform their new hit “You Make Me Feel…” with Sabi. “I grew up watching them every year,” says Cobra guitarist Ryland Blackinton. “It was an honor to be nominated two years ago and it is an even bigger honor to be able to play the pre-show this year. I will never forget when Pat Smear left the Foo Fighters live during the pre-show and I’m planning on having him replace me this year.”

Lady Gaga just announced  yesterday that she will be opening this year’s VMAs; additional performers include Chris Brown, Adele and Bruno Mars.

    I thought this was MTV, not the Disney channel. She is one of the most overrated, overexposed teen stars of the moment.

  • NonEntity

    Is Mickey Thomas in Cobra Starship? Maybe he’ll be playing Selena’s disappointed washed up grandfather, who despite being a sell-out, learned to sing without autotune using actual singing techniques.
