After lots of mysterious buildup, MTV finally revealed the VMAs host

Updated July 27, 2017, 11:35 a.m. PT: We finally know who is hosting the 2017 MTV Video Music Awards. On Thursday, July 27, it was announced that Katy Perry would host the MTV VMA's. Perry released a very cool neon-infused video announcement via Instagram showing her in full MTV Moon Woman gear with the caption: "I’ve been training with @MTV in zero gravity, eating astronaut ice cream, and I’m on a group text with Buzz Aldrin and Neil deGrasse Tyson. Come August 27th, I’ll be ready to be your MOONWOMAN! Brace for impact, kids."

Original story:

VMA season is upon us, and even though nominations for the MTV award show have been announced, a host has not. Who's going to lead us through this? The internet has some theories, and we're here to rank them in terms of likeliness.
