DJ Pauly D and Dev Hosting 2012 mtvU Woodie Awards Special
Is there anything Paul "DJ Pauly D" DelVecchio can't do?
The Jersey Shore star, 31, is co-hosting the 8th Annual mtvU Woodie Awards with "In the Dark" singer Dev, the network confirmed to Us Weekly Friday. The half-hour special will featured performances by Santigold, Mac Miller, Steve Aoki and surprise guests.
"It's pretty much live, so you can't slip up and you can't curse," DelVecchio told Us Weekly before taping the special during the SXSW Music Festival in Austin, Texas Thursday. "It's pretty cool because I'm actually doing two roles -- I'm deejaying and hosting."
"The Woodies are cool because it's all about music and I love music. It doesn't have to do with album sales or most popular people. It has to do with the performances and the music," he adds. "Some of the greatest people started there. Wiz Khalifa started at the woodies. Kings of Leon started at The Woodies."
Vanessa Hudgens, The Vampire Diaries' Kat Graham, Mike Posner, B.o.B., Mac Miller, Cobra Starship, Chiddy Bang, J. Cole and MGK will also dish on their favorite up-and-coming bands during The Woodies.
The 8th Annual mtvU Woodie Awards will air Sunday, March 18 at 8 p.m. EST on MTV and mtvU.
