Wayne Brady is gearing up for back-to-back gigs: he’s hosting the American Music Awards and appearing on the finale of Dancing with the Stars
LOS ANGELES — The red carpet has been rolled out… and the Microsoft Theater in Downtown LA is setting the stage for Sunday’s American Music Awards. Wayne Brady will take the stage to host, perform and add his own comedic touch to the evening. It will also be Take Your Daughter to Work Day.
“It means I’m in the same room with so many people I love dearly,” Maile Brady said.
But with so many music stars in the room… who’s number one for Maile? It turns out dad does NOT know best.
“Drake!” said Maile.
“Beyonce!” said Wayne.
“Will Beyonce be there? I think she’s nominated, but I don’t know if she’ll be there,” Maile said. “If it’s Beyonce, then maybe I can’t go because I would pass out. I tremble when I think about it. I love Beyonce.”
Wayne loves that he made the last four this season with “Dancing with the Stars.” So while he’s rehearsing for both shows, his “Dancing” partner Witney Carson says she’s grateful Wayne made it through so quickly — especially with such limited time and a freestyle number that really needs to wow the crowd!
“We’re going to do what we always do and that’s the focus on how we can show everyone what a great performer he is,” Carson said.
“The company mandate is ‘Have fun,’ because when you have fun, the audience has fun with you,” Brady said.
The 50th American Music Awards will air Sunday, November 20 on ABC.
The finale of Dancing with the Stars airs Monday, November 21 on Disney+.
