Comedian Jay Pharoah brings the comedy to American Music Awards


Former ‘SNL’ cast member Jay Pharoah takes over hosting duties tonight at the American Music Awards 7pm C on ABC. The comedian will be joined by super model Gigi Hadid in being the master of ceremonies, but Pharoah is expected to deliver the laughter. He  is teasing what he has planned for tonight with Billboard, so we are sure to see one of his signature pop star impressions which should be interesting with some of those same stars in the same room.

“You might see a musician impression. You might see a couple more that you didn’t expect. I would think about the ones that you wouldn’t expect more than the ones that you would expect. If that makes any sense, I know it doesn’t, but it will.” said Pharoah in an interview previewing tonight’s AMAs. Read the whole chat here.

Pharoah chatted with Brian & Lou earlier this year when he was in town headlining Zanies. And check out a little confusing video where the guys don’t know when Jay is not doing a character voice.
