AfterElton at the NewNowNext Awards

Adam Lambert

This year’s NewNowNext Awards will air on Logo next Monday, April 9th. But the show will actually be taped this Thursday evening in LA. Our own Louis Virtel is going to be manning the red carpet and, in a first for AfterElton, we’re going to stream that video coverage Thursday evening (5:30PST, 8:30EST) right here on the site!

Louis’ red carpet reporting will be done live, without a net… and possibly some alcohol… so who knows what outrageousness will ensure. And the livestreaming will include a chat feature so AfterElton readers can interact with Louis in real time and maybe suggest inappropriate questions he should ask various celebrities. Who knows exactly who is going to show up (every year there’s always a few surprises), but we can pretty much count on the following presenters and performers…


Adam Lambert
Neon Hitch
Neon Trees
Rye Rye

Willam Belliet


Aisha Tyler
Kat Graham
Ross Matthews
Heather McDonald
George Kotsiopoulos
Perez Hilton
Busy Philipps
Kyle Richards
Carmen Electra
Lamorne Morris (Winston on New Girl)



To help Louis prep for this event we sure could use your guidance. Any questions you might have for any of the folks above? Louis will try to pin them down for an answer Thursday night live on the red carpet. Here’s a couple questions I have to kick this venture off…


Hey Adam Lambert, who are you rooting for on American Idol this season?

Hey Willam, why the hell did you get kicked off Drag Race?

Hey Rye Rye, why not Pumpernickel?

These are just a few ideas. I’m sure our readers can come up with some better questions to ask. Share ’em in the comments and be sure and join us on Thursday at 8:30pm eastern!
