Good news for Chelsea Handler fans — and who isn’t? The gorgeous and talented comedian will host the 27th Annual VMAs on September 12 at the Nokia Theater in Los Angeles. The show will be broadcast on MTV.

The scheduled entertainers have also been announced: Kanye West, Justin Bieber, Drake, B.o.B., and Florence + The Machine. Presenters are Ke$ha, Nicki Minaj, Emma Stone, Penn Badgley, Trey Songz, Ashley Greene, Selena Gomez, and Ne-Yo.

Handler has a theory about why she was chosen to host the star-studded event. She said: “This has been a huge year for hip-hop and rap, and it is well-known that I have the closest ties with these communities — musically and sexually. I am to rap and hippity-hop, what Warren Buffet is to finance, minus the sex.”
