Diego Boneta, who is one of tonight’s co-hosts, talked to E! News about hosting the show with Becky G. He dished, “There’s no one else that I would rather do this with. There’s a lot of things that you know, and I’m not sure how it’s going to go down because I’ve never done this before—it’s our first time, but I think that’s cool, too. We’re just going to be ourselves, have fun, and just make it a big party.” Though Boneta is thrilled to have the opportunity to be hosting, he has also admitted to Entertainment Tonight that he is a bit anxious. He explained, “It’s my first time hosting anything, period! I’m a bit nervous, but at the same time, it’s the good nerves.”
