Sydney, AU (Jay-J Official Website) - MTV has chosen Grammy nominated Producer and International DJ, Jay-J, to perform at the MTV Australia Video Music
Awards 2006 (MTV AVMAs) at the Sydney Super Dome on April 12, 2006. As the show's official DJ for the red carpet and MTV AVMAs, audiences will experience the 'Godfather's' signature sexy, soulful house sounds, blended with funk, soul, and disco to create his contemporary brand of R&B.
Jay-J's been the Dance Music industry's best kept secret since 1990. Word of his infectious grooves has spread quickly since his 2005 CONNECTED world tour and caught the ear of Ean Thorley, Executive Producer, MTV AVMAs, in his search for DJ talent for this year's show which is being broadcast live to a potential worldwide audience of 1 billion people via television, radio and Internet.
Adding Jay-J to the lineup promises to give MTV's audience the element of surprise they've come to expect. Says Thorley, "We are really excited to have Jay-J play at the MTV AVMAs 2006, it promises to be a great night."
