Lisa Ann is the reigning XBIZ MILF Performer of the Year winner, while Benz’s fan site is nominated for a 2012 XBIZ Porn Star Site of the Year award. The dynamic pair also maintains a close friendship off camera.
"Time to roll out the red carpet for the XBIZ Awards and enjoy an evening with me and my partner in crime Nikki Benz," Lisa Ann said. "We are both honored to have the opportunity to be the XBIZ Awards red carpet hosts. We couldn't be more excited to get to be the first to greet all of the amazing guests of the evening, see what they have been up to and share a little time with everyone before they step into the XBIZ Awards Show for a magical evening!"
Benz, who is also the 2011 Penthouse Pet of the Year, is equally excited.
"I have the biggest smile on my face right now!" Benz said. "It is such a great honor to have been asked to co-host the red carpet at the 2012 XBIZ Awards! I look forward to seeing everyone come together for this spectacular event, support each other and wear their best red carpet attire. I’m also really, really excited to be interviewing everyone with my partner in crime, Lisa Ann!"
Dan Miller, managing editor of XBIZ Premiere magazine, said that it was only fitting that Lisa and Nikki host the Red Carpet Arrivals for this historic evening.
"Lisa and Nikki have two of the most vibrant personalities in adult entertainment today and we couldn’t be more pleased with their involvement in our 10th anniversary gala," Miller said. "Without question, the place to be on January 10 will be the 10th Annual XBIZ Awards Red Carpet in Los Angeles."The 2012 XBIZ Awards is presented by MyFreeCams.com.
