So can Russell conquer the US?

05 September 2008


Russell Brand is just about to experience the most important weekend of his life. If all goes according to plan, by Monday morning he could be one of the biggest stars in America after hosting the VMAs on Sunday. But if his very British humour falls as flat as Paris Hilton's singing voice... well, we're talking disaster on a global scale. The organisers have admitted they're taking a bit of a punt by having the deliciously anarchic Russell, a relatively unknown over there, take the helm at one of the biggest award shows in the US showbiz calendar. We're pretty sure he'll pull it off - if he's cool enough to be given the gig, we suspect the A-list audience will laugh along regardless of whether they actually understand his jokes. If not, Johnny Vegas is currently keeping a seat warm on 8 Out of Ten Cats... Do you think Russell will be a hit? Let us know below...
