“I’m excited to see No Doubt, so hopefully I won’t act like a fan girl in front of all the people that I like. I should probably stay professional. My goal is to act like an actual host and not like a fan.”
After touring the United States and overseas last summer with his fellow Glee cast mates, McHale is no stranger to performing in front of a live audience. But, the actor did share that there are some healthy nerves involved when it comes to hosting an awards show on live television.
“My favorite thing on the planet is performing in front of a live audience. Like on tour, I actually loved it,” he said. “Granted, this is talking. I prefer to be singing in front of a live audience, so yes, this is a little nerve-wracking, but I think a little nervous energy I great for this sort of thing. It keeps you on your toes.”
With the Glee actor tackling live television with one of today's hottest pop stars by his side, one might wonder about the possibility of seeing Lovato on the fourth season of the popular television show. McHale seems keen on the idea.
“I would love for her to come on. I mean, we haven’t met any of [Artie’s] family, and so she could be my sister, right? I’m all for that.”
You can catch Glee’s Kevin McHale and The X Factor’s Demi Lovato co-hosting Teen Choice 2012 on Sunday, July 22 at 8 p.m. on FOX.
