Nick Cannon really is taking over TeenNick. He's already the network's chairperson, and now the actor is hosting -- and DJing! -- his own special called The Nightlife. The half-hour show will air every Thursday in August and will feature music, dance, celebrity guests, and teen correspondents Aaron Fresh and Chloe Wang.
"Music is such an important and exciting part of teens' lives and something I'm passionate about, too," Nick says. "I really wanted to bring some of that live energy and excitement to TeenNick; The Nightlife is my weekly dance party, just for them."
Nick's first guests on August 5 will be Ice Cube, Aaron Fresh, and New Boyz. Vita Chambers, Anna Kendrick, Brandon Routh, Colette Carr, and Cali Swag District will be on August 12; T.I., Degrassi's Landon Liboiron, Iyaz, and Tanisha appear on August 19; and Travie McCoy, School Gyrls, and Poreotix will all stop by on August 26.
The Nighlife premieres Thursday, August 5, at 9:30 ET on TeenNick.
