Forget the meme, McKayla Maroney expects to be very impressed with the VMAs tomorrow night. The whole Fierce Five U.S. women’s gymnastics team is set to present an award at the show, and things got just a little bit more exciting for them at a press conference for the event last night. Gabby Douglas announced that one of her faves, Lil’ Wayne, would be performing, and Kyla Ross announced that Katy Perry would be presenting the Best Pop Video Moonman. Afterwards, they told MTV News whom they’re most psyched to meet.
“For me it would definitely be Lil Wayne because I’ve always listened to him and he puts together these amazing lyrics and he’s just awesome,” Douglas said.
“For me, probably Miley Cyrus,” Maroney answered. “I’m very excited to meet her. I’ve been watching her on TV since I was very little and I love her music, and I’m just super-excited to get to even meet her.”
“I definitely want to meet One Direction,” Ross added, echoing many a teenage girl’s wish this year. “I’ve been listening to their music for a while, so it will be very exciting to hopefully meet them.”
Of course, they’re also hoping to give a Moonman to one of their most high-profile supporters. “I’d probably like to present to Justin Bieber,” Maroney said. “Let’s be honest.”
