Today adult film star and 2010 Female Performer of the Year Tori Black was announced as co-host of the 2011 AVN Awards. Black will join Riley Steele on January 8 at the Palms Casino Resort’s Pearl Concert Theater in Las Vegas.
Black won seven awards at the 2010 AVN Awards, including Female Performer of the Year, Best All-Girl Couples Sex Scene, Best Three-Way Sex Scene, Best All-Girl Three-Way Sex Scene, Best Tease Performance, and Best Interactive DVD. She swept most of the other adult entertainment awards this year, winning Performer of the Year at the 2010 XBIZ Awards, 2010 X-Rated Critics Organization XRCO Awards, and 2010 Fans of Adult Media Entertainment (F.A.M.E.) Awards.
“We could not have made a better choice for co-host of the awards show this year,” AVN Awards executive producer Renee Johnson proclaimed. “Tori is absolutely electric. Not only is she drop-dead gorgeous, but she has an amazing personality. We’re all really excited to work with her on the 2011 show.”
Agreed AVN founder Paul Fishbein, “If you watched Tori Black’s acceptance speeches on the Showtime broadcast of the 2010 AVN Awards Show, you see a girl with amazing screen presence. She’s electrifying on stage. She’s one of the biggest adult stars on the planet, and a perfect compliment to Riley Steele. The beautiful brunette meets the gorgeous blonde, hosting the awards show.”
For Black’s own part, she beamed, “First of all, I’d like to say how much of an honor it is to receive such an accolade as being asked to host the 2011 AVN Awards. I can’t begin to express how excited I am, but beyond that I am grateful to have the opportunity to hand out the awards that I myself have been so fortunate to receive. It will be powerful to see the faces of my peers who experience the same humble feelings I felt as I walked onto the stage. Thank you again, AVN, for all your encouragement and love. I can’t wait to see you all there!”
Riley Steele was announced as the awards’ first co-host during a two-day pre-show gala in Las Vegas earlier this summer. While there, she and Black, along with 13 more of the industry’s hottest stars, modeled for the 2011 AVN Awards promotional campaign. Themed “Dress to Impress,” the campaign features all the girls wearing little more than jewelry. Sneak peeks of the ads will appear on AVN.com in the weeks to come, with the campaign fully launching via a freshly updated AVN Awards web headquarters in September.
Fans in the Los Angeles area who can’t wait until January to see Tori Black can see her live this weekend (Aug. 19-21) at the Spearmint Rhino Gentlemen’s Club in City of Industry.”
