Jeong hosts Billboard Music Awards

I got to give it up for my man, Ken Jeong, who tonight hosted the Billboard Music Awards. And if I’m not mistaken, he might be the first Asian-American to host a major American awards show so that’s a pretty big deal to me. Bonus points because he’s Korean.

I was watching The Hangover on closed captioning, and his famous money shot gesture, spreading the seed, what have you, reads as “splashing.” I counted seven splashes in less than the first three minutes of his opening performance, and there’s no doubt in my mind, this guy owns the motion and that it should be forever linked to him. He should trademark that shit before Disney gets on it.

Anyway, loved him as host. He brought the energy I expected and actually, dazzled me with his musical prowess. It’s tough to crack jokes in front of thousands of people of all different ages (including little kids) and comedic preferences (from country artists to rappers), but his outrageous antics kept things entertaining.

Can’t wait for The Hangover Part II, coming out Wednesday night at midnight.

  1. I enjoyed it, though it wasn’t as good as the first. We’re not speaking irrationally again, are we?

  2. ugh, hangover 2 was f’n terrible. This is the perfect example of a studio making a sequel just to mine more money.

  3. I knew I forget Kenny. The double splash I’m seeing for the first time is awesome.

  4. I first saw the Money Shot in Eastbound & Down. (http://youtu.be/Et9-itE5qns) The Eastbound episode and The Hangover were both released in 2009, so I’m fine believing both McBride and Jeong arrived at the idea independently. But it was a one and done deal with Kenny Powers, played by Danny McBride, who hasn’t used the Money Shot since. Jeong, however, has clearly integrated it into his act and the two will likely be linked. Good for him, and good job hosting. Go Asians!
