The MMVAs are a crazy time to start a new job – but I wouldn’t trade it for the world! The energy in the building is unbelievable, everyone is running from one place to the next, adrenaline at an all time high as the start time for the award show creeps closer and excitement peaking with the realization that it’s all coming together.
There was a moment that hit me like a ton of bricks that this is a new chapter of my life. With the MMVAs a sleep away, I was busy filming segments for the behind-the-scenes show and we ended up outside near the main stage when Down With Webster started their sound check…
Hearing One in a million played live on the MMVA stage outside the MuchMusic studio where I slept for two weeks during the VJ search was almost too much for me. I instantly got goosebumps and could feel myself getting emotional. That song highlights the best experience of my life, it brings back memories of traveling across Canada on the MuchMusic bus, of the crazy challenges and of winning the coveted prize of becoming a VJ. I am extremely grateful for this opportunity and I can’t wait to here the boys from DWW on the big night on Sunday!!
Note to self: wear waterproof mascara and bring Kleenex.
Watch the 2013 MMVAs Sunday at 9E/6P on Much in Canada and Fuse in the U.S. Don’t miss The MMVAs RED CARPET SPECIAL, which airs just before the big show at 8E/5P. Or you know, you can be here for the party on Queen Street. Regardless, see you soon!
