Kelly Rowland to Host Oscars Red Carpet Pre-Show

Kelly Rowland is Oscars’ golden girl. The “Kisses Down Low” singer has been invited to host the red carpet pre-show for the 85th Annual Academy Awards.

She made the announcement on Twitter. “Thank you @TheAcademy for inviting me to host the #Oscars Red Carpet show. I can’t wait! Tune in February 24!” tweeted an excited Kelly, who recently changed the title of her upcoming album to Talk a Good Game.

As part of the gig, she will interview the nominees and other A-listers as they walk down the carpet on Oscar Sunday. She will be joined by co-hosts Kristin Chenoweth, “Good Morning America” anchor Lara Spencer, and Entertainment Weekly managing editor Jess Cagle.

Kelly previously acted as a red carpet correspondent for ESPN The Magazine‘s annual NEXT event during Super Bowl weekend in New Orleans.

See Kelly in action when “The Oscars Red Carpet Live!” airs Sunday, February 24, at 7e/4p on ABC.

      @Osaz, not sure they’re haters so much as “doubters”. I can’t imagine anyone hating this woman. She is flawless, in a human way.

  • FlySly

    Congrats Kelly! Get that money!!!

  • Chris

    This is a good look for Kelly and deserved too. I know her album will be better than Beyonce’s.

    • Jake

      @Chris, You don’t know anything. You’re just speaking out of hatred for Beyonce (who has no single out at this time and has nothing to do with this discussion). Stop talking out of your ass. Kelly’s sex songs have nothing on Bey’s body of work.

      • Chris

        @Jake, I don’t hate Beyonce, I bought her debut album and think she’s very talented actually. However her albums in general don’t do a lot for me and I’m allowed to say that. Also there is nothing wrong with sex songs, sex is a part of life and the reason you are here right now. Get over yourself!

      • IV.

        @Jake, oh b*tch please. Kelly only has what 3 or 4 sex songs compared to other amazing pieces she’s put out I’m the past. You weak f@ggot Bey fans irk me.

  • Kyle

    The Academy probably saw how stunning she looked on the Grammy’s Red Carpet and wanted that beautiful woman on their carpet! Good for Kelly!

    • WE LOVE YOU KELLY!!!

      @Kyle, undoubtedly, the fact that it’s been announced almost a week before the actual event makes it more than likely.

  • ME

    OMG this photo of hers is just…WOW…I have no words :O

  • Big Boi

    I Like The Fact That KELLY ROWLAND IS KNOWN NOW….. SHE’S NOT THE GIRL FROM DC3 ANYMORE…… ANY QUESTIONS!!!

    • ME

      @Big Boi, sometimes I wonder if this isn’t the real Big Boi lol

  • Jay

    Awesome!!! Go Kelly!!! I was just listening to Kelly’s album Ms. Kelly the other day and I forgot just how great of an album it is. Also, Kelly was probably the sexy woman at this years Grammys. That body in that dress made my jaw drop. For real!!! :)
